Easter Egg Hunt 2010

Here are the images from our annual neighborhood Easter Egg hunt this morning. The kids had a great time and Wubzzy has become the neighborhood rock star. All the kids know his name and all of the parents say “This is the little guy I’ve been hearing about”. The funniest part of the morning was Wubzzy barking repeatedly at an older dog that we were later told is completely deaf. We still haven’t broken that news to Wubzzy yet Continue reading Easter Egg Hunt 2010

The End Of My Rope

Image by CheshireCat@TO via Flickr We continue to accumulate tools to help our new puppy “Wubzzy” acclimate himself to our world and home. I never realized how high maintenance a puppy is, but hopefully all of the purchases are working towards a common goal. The most recent acquisition is a chain with one of those corkscrew bases so he has freedom to roam the yard…but not too much. This purchase was born out of necessity. It seems that Mr. Wubzzy enjoys eating just about everything in the backyard. This would include mulch, grass and most recently pine needles. None of … Continue reading The End Of My Rope

Bad Sock!

Image via Wikipedia In order to get a better handle on “Wubzzy”, over the weekend I picked up a copy of “Puppies for Dummies“. I figured I would it would be perfect for me because we have a puppy and, well, I’m a… you get the idea. I’m sure by the time I finish this 365 page book, old “Wubzzy” will be ranked among “Best in Show“. There was one training concept that the kids and I found great joy in all weekend. In order to properly train our little rock star, we are supposed to yell at the objects he … Continue reading Bad Sock!

No Wubzzy! Wubzzy NO!

It is amazing how quickly life can change. In just three short days, our household has been turned completely upside down by a furry little 3 month old named “Wubzzy”. Here are just a few of the changes to come our way: All bedroom doors must now be closed due to socks, slippers, pillows and towels being the object of Wubzzy’s oral fixation. The phrases “Wubzzy No!”, “No Wubzzy”, “No Bite”, “Down”, “Kennel Up”, “Good Boy” and “Potty” can be heard at any time. I am now a morning person out of necessity and not choice. Each of the members … Continue reading No Wubzzy! Wubzzy NO!

Welcome Home Wubzzy!

I would like to introduce you to the newest addition to our family. This is “Wubzzy”. He came home tonight to 3 very excited little ones (2 grown adults were pretty excited too). He is a Basset Hound/Chow mix and 3 months old. I swore I would never do this again, but the older I get the more I am learning to never say never. Ever since our youngest was born she has been drawn to animals and especially dogs. She loves soft and cuddly things and Wubzzy is all of that and more. We got off to a little … Continue reading Welcome Home Wubzzy!
