Dad is away so the Pup can play

So fiance is away for a few days at a work conference so it's just the Dukemister and myself. He threw a temper tantrum when he left too and misbehaved for the rest of the afternoon. I had to give him a butt whoopin' before we went to bed because he was just being a brat.

It seemed to do the trick because he was all cuddly with me this morning. I think he hates being cooped in the apartment and gets upset when his dad doesn't come home at night. It's been super cold outside here (20's and low 30's) so it's hard to take him for a walk because the concrete sidewalks hurt his feet when it's cold. I took him over to the future in-laws so he could run around and play in their backyard (it's all grass and a lot softer on his feet even if it is cold).

We've taken away most of his toys because he destroys them. He managed to sneak and grab a toy we were giving to my future sister-in-law's baby. Not anymore after Duke got a hold of it!

When you roll it along the floor it makes noises and he barks at it. It's pretty funny to watch. Or it was until all he wanted to do was chew it's head off. Maybe I'll try again tomorrow.

The only other news since fiance left is Duke has had horrible horrible gas. Stinky, room clearing, nastiness. Oh boy Duke. I wish there was something we could do about that.

Happy Home

Do you think he's happy we're home?

Squish Face

He is too cute for his own good! Cell phone pictures don't do him justice though. (He's sleeping in my spot on the bed, he'll be in for a rude awakening when I get back!)

Still away from my Family (Florida is a mighty good reason though)

More cell phone pictures from my hunny and Duke. Apparently he was bad today and chewed a hole through Triton's bed. Future mother-in-law was not impressed. She said she'd patch that one as well as patch his bed that he chewed a hole in last week.

Fiance and Mr. Duke. He really wanted nothing to do with the idea of taking a photo.

Puppies don't hold still for cell phone cameras.

"Have you seen my mommy? I'll be a better puppy, I promise!"

More tired puppy.

Oh family. Two days. Just two days.

Love at first sight

'Twas love at first sight. - June 2008

Dear Squish Face,
I will be home soon from vacation (Friday). I miss you.
Love, Mommy

Daddy just got home so he should send me a few photos with his cell phone.

Duke is having a chewing problem. Like major chewage. Not on the furniture or anything important. But he does not have one toy left in our apartment! He keeps eating them! He also put a very big hole in his brand new LL Bean Bed (which he hasn't used yet accept to chew).

He has a kong which he doesn't chew. He has a kong bone which he sometimes chews. He has 6 million hooves (which stink like, well, not real good). Other than that he destroys everything he can.

*sigh* SO frustrated with this dog. It must be teenage angst.

Here's him in his snazzy new $2 sweater though.

And here is a half focused / half unfocused picture of Duke playing with the one toy he cannot destroy: THE LASER POINTER.

Duke's going to be visiting Triton and Dinoco for a few days while we are on vacation in sunny Florida! I think he likes it over there better than his home here!
