New foster Stu arrive today thanks to fellow NR Alex who help transport him to the eastside. He is such a sweetie... not missing a beat, full of tail to body wags, kisses and snuggles... He was instantly enamored of my dog Sasha and just follows her waiting for some love back (keep waiting Mr. Stu... ) and
He's a bigger dog than I've had this year, maybe 15lbs (haven't weighed him yet), got himself a big of an underbite and is not a fan of the water in the bath, but seemed to enjoy the massage that came with it!
His name in California was Pickles which I thought was so cute so I named him Stu - for Stu Pickles, a dad from the Rugrats show and keeping with the S names... It fits him I think! See the resemblance?

He's found himself a favorite spot...burrowing in between pillows and settling in for a nap... he looked pretty comfy to me!

Skipper has been loving exploring the back yard and enjoying the sunshine. He is learning the doggie door and working on his house training. He still needs some to work on his house tranining but he has figured out he gets yummy treats afterwards and is starting to run to me for them! It's a good sign!

A friend gave me a cool new owl toy and Skipper promplty made it his best friend... he chases it, carried it, nibbles it and makes it squeeak... What he can't do, is jump up with it in his mouth, but i'm happy to help the little feller out.

Skipper loves to hang out with other dogs. Here he is with Skittles (former foster dog that I am dog watching). Skittles wasn't a huge fan or curious Skipper, but skipper has been slowly getting closer and closer and last night they played a little bit even before Skittles remembered he doesn't do that!
He is a little timid, but once my neighbors daughter sat down and wait, Skipper wanted some attention ASAP!

Skipper loves himself a squeaky toy... Hear some toy squeaks and you can be sure he is the cause of it. We've started to play with the tail chaser, but he doesn't get the "chase part", preferring to just gnaw on the tail and make it squeak. He even found it hanging up on the door and was jumping trying to get at it...
I put the food dish up and he found it. I think he's mocking me!
