Puppy Envy: why she’s top dog

As you’ve all probably noticed, we have been a little bit mysteriously missing lately. Well it turns out that our tiny dictator, Puppy E, has us all at her beck and call — and her wishes are not all that compatible with blogging! The boys are riveted with the miniature human. She gets all the privileges, has all the coolest stuff, and she gets even more attention out on the town than the boys do. Plenty to envy.

Here is the boys’ Top 5 list on the subject:

#5. She is an excellent sharer. Not only does she not show any interest in our tennis balls (what kind of puppy is she??), but she does not mind if we sniff at — and occasionally abscond with — her toys, which are always scattered about. If only we were so generous with our possessions!

#4. She does not get in trouble for her noisemaking. When we bark in the house, we get put in time out. When she barks? She gets picked up and scritched behind the ears — whether it’s happy barking or angry barking. How did she do that?

Evangeline-130816-218#3. Her wardrobe is better than ours. She has many, many fantastical garments with pit bulls on them, whereas we don’t have any puppy-themed outfits. We do have these cool t-shirts that our Aunt M sent us a while back, but obviously only one of them suits anymore. Wonder what we have to do to score some sweet new puppy-themed threads . . .

Snickerdoodle-120105-15#2 The camera adores her. We used to be the stars of the show in our house, and we did the Most Expertly modelings almost every day. Or so we thought — but this puppy is really stealing the spotlight. Boy, is she an expert at muggin’ for the camera!


#1 She is the queen of lap-sitting.  Ok. So maybe 52 pounds (Chick) and 61 pounds (Bug) is a bit big for lap-sitting, but that doesn’t mean we don’t give it the ol’ college try. Usually, the answer is “no,” and that’s cool, we’ve come to expect it. But then along comes this puppy, and she gets scooped up by everybody and either held or snuggled. Totally awesome. Sometimes, we get to co-snuggle with her, and that’s pretty cool. Her generosity extends beyond toy-sharing, it seems!

  1. I was just thinking about all of you the other day, wondering how in the world would you have time to do ANY blog posts with the new puppy, and then I see this this morning! It’s a treat to help start my day off on a positive note!

  2. We have a ten month old…. And our big chocolate lump has gradually grown to love the ear pulling, collar tugging screaming…. Probably because he has now become his feeder. Whenever the high chair comes out, benson our chocolate lab is never far away. The joys of having a baby out way any downs though it is hard work…. But worth it.

  3. That last photo made me cry. I just love you guys for balancing the new puppy with the “old” puppies. Seeing the three snuggled together with that amazing pibble smile was the most beautiful thing I have seen all week. Thank you for sharing that. Your three babies are the most beautiful that I have seen in a while. I would say ever but my pibbles do rank right up there… 🙂

  4. Sweet storyline as usual. Love how you incorporate the baby (youngest puppy in the eyes of the other two) and tell the story through the eyes of the dogs. Charming.

  5. LOVE your blog posts! Was so glad to see this in my in box today:) Puppy E is very fortunate to have 2 big brothers to look after her.

  6. Perfect pictures to end a stereotype! I love pictures of “aggressive dogs” snuggling with children. Your pups look so sweet and happy to welcome your little bundle of joy. Congratulations!

  7. Oooooooooooh Bug and Chick….maybe this will result in you getting some cool new puppy themed clothes! And just wait till Puppy E starts eating in a chair and dumping stuff all over the floor…yum!

  8. I know tyis if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get
    setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you
