Dog Day Afternoon

Henry is nothing like our previous canine friend, Sparky. Sparky was quiet and sweet. Henry is the opposite. He's LOUD! He's AGGRESSIVE! He's always into something.

I love him, but he's a handful. Sparky used to follow me around all day and sleep by my chair when I finally sat down. Henry FOLLOWS me around ALL DAY, yippin' and chewing on my chair even before I sit down. Luckily, when I need a break from him, he's happy to amuse himself in the yard.

First, he runs out into the grass and wriggles around in it:

Then- after inspecting the trees for squirrels- he runs to the back fence to see if the neighbor's dog is out:

After spending a good hour barking at anything that moves (and occasionally things that don't-like a lawn chair), he will sit by the back door until I let him in.

It's a lot of work being a nine-month old puppy. You can't blame the guy for needing a nap:

Next time: Henry goes toad-hunting.

awwwwwwwwwwww!! I've fallen in love with puppies over the past few months, and I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to get an Australian Shephard.

He's so precious. Just wait until he barks at falling leaves and the wind. Wieners do that, you know.

Love that you censored the naughty parts.

Oh my goodness, he sure is adorable. Henry should calm down some by the time he is one. =)
