Today ended up being a very fun day. This morning I had breakfast with my friend Maria and we did some shopping. We had a great time. I am glad we got to spend some time together.
This afternoon......okay, this afternoon was not a lot of fun. I put away laundry, cleaned, and forgot the dogs were outside while I was working and they ventured over to the neighbors. Luckily I have neighbors that like dogs. Shaggy is a little stinker. More on him later.
This evening we went to an event at Arlington's school. Arlington's school is grades 3-5. They were doing a students and staff basketball game. Arlington has been talking about it for weeks, so we went to watch. They had one kid from each class (not Arlington - she told me they picked someone who actually plays basketball in their class) and then teachers and divided into two teams. It was a lot of fun and it was PACKED. We had dinner there too - they had pizza before the game. I have to say - our town really shows its support for the schools. Every event we have attended, it has been very well attended. It is nice to see.
Shaggy has been with us for 1 week now. He is still very cute, and still sleeps a good bit. But when he is awake, look out. He has a different personality from Scooby, and we are getting used to it. He is sweet, but he is ornery. Scooby never leaves our yard, and if he starts to, we are able to call him back. Shaggy - no interest in staying in the yard. He loves our neighbors yard because it has a bird feeder and there are seeds on the ground.
Scooby is trained - he has been through 16 weeks of puppy school and we work with him non-stop. But he also has a very laid back, "wants to be with us" personality. Shaggy likes to roam. He likes to run. He loves to play. And he doesn't seem to know his name - especially when we are outside.
Shaggy is about 5 weeks older than what Scooby was when we got him, so he has some bad habits we are working through. I see the advantage of getting a puppy as soon as you can.
