I have to admit, this Dog Father is feeling somewhat nostalgic today. I found some old photos the Chief took of the Fur Kids up to no good. They made me chuckle ... and they made me think of the Fur Kids that have gone to their new Furever Homes.
Sure I complain about them being irritating and how they get in my way all the time but its just my gruff macho TOP DOG way of saying ' I wuv you..'
Fur Kids at 3 months
They've grown so quickly ... much TOO quickly, I have to add. Where did ALL that time go!?Once a brief moment ago, they were tiny little bundles of fur ... waddling all over the place. All tails and licks. Getting into the Pack's ears, mouth, eyes, your lags ...
This TOP DOG remembers quite fondly how the Chief could fit and carry all NINE of them in a basket. Their first outing out of the Den ... it seemed like only yesterday they were wee helpless puppers mewing for their Momma. Such a stark contrast ... looking at how the Chief struggles and staggers just to lift ONE pup into the showers ... judging at how fast they are growing, they'll soon be uncarry-able ... by the Chief's standards.
The Fur Kids today are nearly as big, if not bigger than I am (thanks to their Momma's Dobie genes), run faster than Snoopy and I (can't help its, Bassets have short legs...), and have barks that this Dog Father, their Momma and the Dog Woods Pack are very proud off! At the rate they are progressing I'd soon have to field them into the Dog Woods Pack proper!
I suppose on the comforting side, am glad I still have FOUR of my Fur Kids with me. Not quite as many licks and wags but I sure wuv them to bits and no I've not stopped loving the other Kids that have since found new homes. Speaking of which, I must give my other Fur Kids living with their new families a holler-woo just to see how they're doing and keep them updated with the happenings at Dog Woods.
