Just listening to some Jim Croce, Lovers Cross, and adding some info about Tiny Ms Emma Stone....
Emma is settling in to Riverwest just fine. We live in an old large two-flat, ya know with the 10' ceilings, aged crown mouldings, columns and the built-in hutch in the dining with stained glass..all very old German Milwaukee craftsmanship at its best..It is one of those places with two two-flats houses on the same property..so we get two great yards and they are fenced together.
The couple above me have a rescued Bulldog, One Eyed Willie and he does have only one eye, Willie is 2. The couple that live in the lower in the "back" house have a rescued Keeshond mix Stella and she is 10. With Mollie, my Missouri Mystery Mutt and Jake, my Irish Wolfhound and Great Pyrenees mix, both of whom are 7 it is a true pack round here...Tiny Emma Stone might be the smallest but she fits right in. As the Baby she is the ramble-rouser.
Every day Stella comes over around noon and spends the remainder of the day with us, on Wednesday I let Willie out a few times as his humans are away all day. Today for the first time all 5 were out together. Stella is the fun police...so I brought her back in rather quick. Willie, Mollie and Tiny Emma ran around this yard for a good 45 min...Monkey in the middle man it was crazy!!! Jake just laid around eating snow, Dude is lazy, to be honest with all of you he did play for about 5 mins then laid around eating snow! Every time the action would look like it might slow Emma would take off like she had been shot out of a cannon and the race was on again. I stood at my dining window eating my lunch laughing. You just must love dogs, they are such great entertainment!
Tiny Emma Stone is very good with the Cat Gema, she would really appreciate it if Gema would just play with her, but Gema is having none of it.
"Seriously EMMA leave me alone,
I'm much to dignified to lower myself to play with the likes of you"
Gema said with superior attitude...
"Well then whatever there darlin
I'll just go on a standin here
makin my toy squeak in your ear"
Emma responded with more then a hint of mischief
Happy to let you all know that Tiny Emma Stone is very good at her commands, "sit", "wait", "down" we are working on "off" when she gets excited she will start standing on her back legs, but before you know it, she is leaning on yours! Emma is very treat driven sooo I'm attempting to get her to spin for a treat when she is up on her back legs...I'll keep you posted!
Emma could be house-trained she is just not sure how to tell you. So she has to sleep in her crate and she is very good about it, but I don't let her out until I am ready to head to the door. I've been trying to keep up with letting her our very frequently but we've had a few accidents around here. If any of you have any advice please feel free to leave a comment. She goes though the night without a problem so I'm very certain it's not a medical issue. As soon as she goes out the door she will do her thing, it's just trying to figure out what her signal is....We will keep working on it...But I think she will do much better with someone that can be home with her all day. I work out of my home so it is going to be OK here...Just want to let you know Forever Family.
We took a walk tonight, Mollie, Jake and Stella all move around Riverwest off leash. They do very well, so I had Tiny Emma Stone on a 12' training leash and she would "wait" at each corner just like the big dogs. When we got to the park I let her run dragging the trainer and she did stay with Mollie and Stella. She also came to me when I called her, but I was running to keep within reach of her and the pack...Jake on the other hand is always bring up the rear...Dude is lazy!
Well I've written chapter!
Here are some new photos for your viewing pleasure!
"This woman is wearing me out...and just so ya know this is my place on the sofa.
Yup ya'all heard it right I'm a sofa girl"
"This here is my friend Jake, Dude is Lazy"
"And this is my new bestie Mollie"
"This is Stella, she hates the camera...
she done told me that if ya look into the camera it will steal your soul..
This chick is daffy"
"Me and Molz, she is such a cool bff,
Makes me feel right at home here!"
Well that's it that's all
