Scout's Playdate

Scout recently had a playdate with her siblings and some of the adult dogs owned by our breeder. She had a great time running around with all the other puppies at the park. Afterwards, I had a chance to reflect on a couple things:

  1. Scout is too babied. She kept checking back in with me every 5 minutes. The other puppies could've cared less where their owners were. They were busy running away and getting into things they shouldn't. (I must be a better mommy - ha!)
  2. Scout and her brother Yogi were the nicest pups. (I say this because Scout and Yogi were the only puppies not biting.)
  3. Scout has the smallest head. I keep thinking of that movie Beetlejuice. (Know what I'm talking about - the guy w/ the shrunken head?)

Anyways, here's a slide video I put together of her day. And yes, I love my Scout WAY TOO MUCH!

You are "in love" with Scout. All of the puppies are so cute, and very photogenic. Thank you for sharing Scout with us. She has a real good owner.

Hi Shelley, What fun for the pups! You got some great photos and you are a great Mom to Scout - the love works both ways! I think you chose THE perfect dog!

Scout is lucky to have you as a mommy.

I think you'll both do fine.

Hi Shelley!

For some reason, the speakers on my computer aren't working, so if the video had sound, I didn't hear it! But the pictures are sooooo cuuuute!

Thanks for asking about Jilly - I don't mind at all, but no, I haven't seen her since Easter Sunday at Walmart where my mom & I ran into her, her daddy Justin, & Justin's dad. No answered calls - Nothing.

With my slow computer it won't let me watch videos, but the pic of scout and the other puppy are cute.
How fun for her to have a play date. You ARE a good mom!!

George said...

It looks as if Scout had a wonderful play date with her siblings. Are you suggesting Scout may be a little spoiled?

How much fun - I didn't know people got together after they got their puppies. I would like to have a pet, but it would be difficult with all our traveling around and living at the cabin. - Margy

I hate having dial up because I wasn't able to see the video but I can just imagine what fun it must of been to watch Scout with the others. When you mentioned how she would 'check back' with you it reminded me of things we're learning in my psychology class. It sounds like Scout loves her mommy too!

Take care and thank you for your words of encouragement yesterday. I needed to hear them. *hugs*

They are all fantastic dogs!!!! Don't worry about spoiling Scout..she is only young once. :-)

Handsome looking dogs with striking colors. From what you've said before they are intelligent, too, and it shows in the photos.

So, so sweet, Shelley! I feel the same way about my Bella...she's completely won my heart!

Heather said...

That's so nice that she got to play with her brothers and sisters. She's getting so big! Just too cute. We missed you at the birding symposium, but I understand that you're busy with school. Hope all is well. Take care - hugs to you!

Karen said...

Golly she has gotten so BIG! WHAT FUN!!!! Oh my - I think I know what kind of dog I might be in love with. She is just too cute! I know why you love her so much. Where was her Mom, I mean, the one who gave birth to her? I know Shelley, you are her Mom.
How is school?
Hey I am going to Michigan in Nov. To a little town called Clifford? Anywhere near you?
Loved this post - as always.
HUGS!

Thank you for following my blog! I really like your blog, Shelley! Great photos, and I would love to live in a log cabin :)) See you later!

Scout is growing up so fast....it seems like just yesterday when she was a tiny bundle. They are a beautiful breed....loved the slide show. I also love the idea of a doggie play date.

reliv4life said...

looks like fun! makes me wonder about Belle's litter mates and where they all are now...
Hope school is going well! I miss you.

Charli and me said...

What a great video! I don't think you could ever love your dog to much. Scout is beautiful and it sounds like you are doing a wonderful job with her. I hope you have fun this weekend ♥
