Our pups...

This week Rusty got a haircut! Thanks to Christine at Laurelwood Veterinary Hospital in Waterloo. He looks good in his short summer coat and he won't pick up as many burrs when Tim works with him in the fields.

Trudi is still continuing to come out of her shell. She's been with us for 5 years, we figure she's about 10 years old, and she's still "learning new tricks." I think having Rusty around has helped. Rusty is an extremely extroverted, high-energy dog and it seems to be rubbing off on Trudi. She's actually even sitting for the camera! In the past she used to hide from the camera and most of my photos would be of her back end.

Here are the two pups playing biteyface. It's such a joy to see them interact like this. They really are good for each other.

Then there's Ben - the sometimes-puppy, sometimes-boy:

  1. I love it!! Yeah it's amazing how their personalities will adapt to new packmates. She's discovering probably by watching him that she can act outgoing and it won't kill her. lol

  2. awwwwwwww so cute!!!!! Okay i think i'm slowly becoming a dog lover lol
