Big Girl Collars

Big Girl Bamboo! Looking just like her Mama Lani
We spend more money on Waffle's accessories than we do on ourselves. With spring weather here, we had to get her something new. We took a nice hike and then hit the pet store and the do-it-yourself doggie bath place. This is her just before she passes out for the night. You'll notice she is on my bed! I was in the process of changing the sheets and she was on my heels waiting for me to finish so she could get comfortable for the night. Spoiled is thy name

The other pictures are of Bamboo moving into her big girl collar, this used to be a big thing because like carnival rides 'you must be this big' to wear your adult collar. GDB used to have this brass name plate on the collar that kept them from being shortened enough to fit the smaller pups. Most of my girls have been on the small side and it usually took them to 10 or 11 months before they could wear them, it seemed like FOREVER before they could wear them and such a big moment when they did. Well it still is a big moment when the pups move into their big girl collars, but GDB recently stopped using the brass plates, now they just attach a simple dog tag. The difference? well Bamboo's half sister Limerick turned 1 this month and she finally fits into her big girl collar (she has the old plate version), and Boo moved into her BGC at 7 months. 

And finally.............

My new boyfriend

Isn't he handsome! his name is Rocky and he's and east coast guy (the guiding eye foundation), our eyes met across the crowded cafeteria, our tails wagged and before our peeps could say no, we were swappin' sniffs to say hello.

Bamboo and Rocky sitting in the sun.
Well since we met, he has dropped by to visit. His mom took off his harness so we could play. Not sure if he likes me for me or because my office has toys and a bed. We shall see....

silly Rocky demonstrating the 'frog dog' pose
BFF thought it would be fun to see me in harness, she asked Rocky and his mom thought it would be hilarious to see him in my puppy jacket. I'm a petite little girl only 40lbs and well Rock he's a big bruiser at 80lbs easy. So his harness had to be on the smallest setting and my jacket expanded all the way would only fit around his neck. It needed another 12 inches or so to make it around his chest. 

Me, trying on Rocky's harness
One day.....
