just playing ...

Yesterday, when I woke up, there was total silence outside. Usually shortly before dawn breaks, birds start singing. Was this the first sign of Fall approaching? Today though, it was like a madhouse. Squirrls made so much noise, it sounded like upheaval in the monkey house, Crows, Cardinals were all protesting about something very loudly. Happy and I had a nice sleep in. It's a holiday, so it's allowed. Speaking of monkey, Happy is quite the little monkey himself.
Playing fetch with Biko got severely interupted by him.

He's stalking her bringing the ball back:

Sept. 2-2
then takes it away from her and runs. She looks a little flabbergasted.

Sept. 2-3

She's still not realized that he's not playing by her rules, like Sam did. Usually she would drop the ball a few meters before me, to be picked up by Sam, who would bring me the ball. She obviously wanted Happy to do that as well, but he always grabs it and runs off with it, leaving her to go after him to get it back.

Sept. 2-1

It's great fun for him, and you can almost hear him giggling. At the end of the chase he just flops down on his back, and let her have it until the next round.

Sept. 2-5

On crafting news: I'm working on a secret project, just something I can't show here yet (because SHE is reading my blog); I spin a little. My Cousin Romy had a baby girl, so I've got to knit something for her as well. I found a pattern last night, have to dig out some yarn. It's NOT going to be a baby blanket (gasp), even though I would love to knit one, but it would take too long. The single socks are still waiting for their partners, but they are on the back burner, as is my cardigan. So, I better hop to it!

Have a nice Labor Day!

Glad to see all is well with the pups and you. Happy is such a clown! I get such a kick out of his antics. Ah, the joys of puppyhood!

Mo said...

Both pups are adorable! Great Labor Day post!

ohh my I can definitely see how much he's grown since you got him in these pics.
Poor Biko, she'll get him trained to do what she wants some day :)

hannah said...

These pictures are so funny. And also your story about it.

I hope to see your secret project soon.

I love Happy pics! Nothing like puppy antics to make my day.

That Happy! I tell you - he's a monkey alright! Biko does look a little perplexed at the flagrant rule violations....

No laboring going on here today - yay!

Looks like Happy is giving Biko a run for her money. Actually the exercise is probably good for her and will keep her young :)

Kris B said...

Hehe, I think Biko is going to have to get use to the new rules :).

Sharon V said...

That Happy! He's a tricksy one! Biko is probably not getting why HE doesn't get it! Pobresita!

I love stealth projects! I'll be as happy to see what crafty idea you come up with as your cousin will be!

He'd better be careful because Biko might "accidentally" sit on him one day and squish him flat! :-)

That second picture, where Happy is running away with the ball and his ears are back-he looks like Lorelai Gilmore does. These puppies that don't play by the rules: they are wicked!!! If only The Big Dogs could understand!!! It is so nice that they are playing together though, and that they will be great companions to each other!!!

Carrie K said...

Moooo-om! Happy's not playing right! Poor Biko. Little brothers. :)

Secret project! Can't wait to find out what it is.

It's absolutely delightful to see Happy grow and have so much fun. Cos through him we all get to become more playful!

T-Mom said...

ROTFL! What a cutie he is! And I'm sure this is good for Biko--wakes her up!
