We know you've seen this picture before, but we couldn't resist posting it again with Patches' smiling face! She's getting along very well here at Airedale Heaven, but she did get into a bit of trouble yesterday. She has done a few potties in the house, but Mom had a discussion with her and she hasn't done it anymore. We had a few teeth-flashing sessions since Patches doesn't like it when Penny or I get too close to Mom or Dad. We think it's just because she has always been an only dog and it will take her some time to adjust to the fact that there are 3 of us now and we all need lovings just as much as she does!
This is where Patches sleeps at night or if Mom and Dad go somewhere. She's got plenty of room in this ginormous crate and a very thick and comfy quilt.
She still prefers the cold, hard kitchen floor to her comfy crate. I guess it's because the floor is nice and cool. It must feel good on her tummy. I, myself prefer the carpet or my big soft bed, but we will let Patches sleep wherever she wants.
Most of the time, she won't let our pawrents out of her sight, but she was good when they went away for about an hour, the other day. We were supposed to have a barkday pawty today, but since Mom isn't feeling so hot, we are going to do it on Thursday. Aunt Wendy is coming over to celebrate with all of us! Mom got Patches a big bag of Canine Cuts from PetCo. I'm sure she will share with us. Ok, she might not WANT to, but when one of us gets a treat, we ALL get a treat!
We all had a great time at Pearl, Opal and Harley's skating pawty. Patches even sat next to Lacie on Aire-Ruby and Lacie used her blendering skills to whip up some milkshakes for her. Thanks Lacie...Patches says they were delish! When we were at the pawty, we all ended up in a huge pup-pile on the skating rink floor. We kept Patches away from the pile because we didn't want anydog falling on her. Maybe somedog will have another skating pawty when she is stronger. You can see all the photos of the pawty on Asta's bloggy. She's a great photographer!
Poppy, Penny & Patches
