A Little Extra Holiday Weight
Brodi has always been a peculiar dog. He was an angel puppy. Super easy to house break, even easier to train, never chewed anything, but he was a bit emotional. Brodi has always had another friend dog living with him. In college my roommates always had dogs and when I moved to Louisiana, I got another dog. Brodi loves to have a dog friend with him. It keeps him sane. After Bear went missing Brodi went anorexic on me. He wouldn't eat. I would fill his bowl and it would stay full for about two or three days. Then he would nibble at it. It was depressing. But ever since we got Belle, things have kind of changed. Brodi started to eat and really hasn't stopped. Can anyone else see that gut? His belly is defiantly full. I am glad he is eating now, but my goodness, I may have to cut him back a little. And all this because we bring him home a girlfriend. But I don't blame Brodi for trying to look handsome for Belle. Who could not love that face? She is growing up so fast. When we got her, she was 10lbs. Now Belle is 15lbs. A little chunk of change. I love her squishy puppy paws. They are so soft and squishy. The only time she will let me touch them is when she is sleeping. Belle and Brodi are getting along really well. Belle has even gotten Brodi to start playing again. Brodi will get down and play growl with her. It's so sweet to see my old man get some spring back into his step. It's hard to believe Belle is 11 weeks old. At what age are they totally potty trained? I really can't wait for that day. I am about finished with going outside every 20 minutes. Some how Mr. Cowboy has gotten out of all the doggie duties. How does that happen?We will have to investigate. But in the mean time, I am glad Brodi is finally happy, even if it means he gains a little extra holiday weight.
