Three Dogs in the House (not permanently)

January 8, 2014 1 Comment

Since the dogs haven’t been able to run around as much outside lately because of the very cold weather, I thought¬†inviting Oscar over to play on my days off would be a good way to burn off their extra energy.

Oscar and Teddy are littermates and came in to the shelter as “not wants.” I love getting them back together every once in a while just to see how they’ll react and to compare them to each other! I think as they get older (a year and a half old now), the more they look and act alike. So many of their mannerisms are the same; it makes me laugh! Oscar is a little bigger than Teddy, but I think you definitely tell they’re related.

All three dogs ran around for awhile, but then Cubbie got tired and needed a nap.

Teddy and Oscar continued to play, which mostly consisted of them doing circles around the loveseat as Teddy chased Oscar nonstop.

A few times both the boys would lay down, and I thought they were finally ready to take a little nap! Nope. The quiet time lasted for an entire five miutes (maybe) before one was back up, and they were both running around the house again.

It was really great for all three dogs to get a little more exercise after being trapped inside so much lately. They boys fell asleep after Oscar left, and they slept all through the night!

 Even though I had my hands full, it was a fun day off for me to watch all three of these guys play together and wear each other out.

    Love reading about you and your dogs. I have had trouble with my dog not sleeping all night lately too……a good run around really helps! I will have to find my Louie some little doggie friends to run around with!
