All in a Dog's Day

Our new puppy, Willie Ray, had quite a Christmas and Boxing Day. First, he was overjoyed at all the young people visiting. Poor guy, most of the time he just has Larry and me, so when our youngest son Tommy came in Willie was just beside himself. Then the grandkids came, and oh my, did he have a time!

After much running and eating of scraps, he was tuckered out. He quickly became a fan of Cassidy's singing when she let him on the couch. 

The next day he tried to help Haley at target shooting. I don't think he was much help, actually,

but that didn't stop him from helping Kate

He had to help check the targets too.

It was a rough day for a dog and he needed some relaxation, so

 first he played with Cadyn and Hannah, then

he stole Cadyn's binky! 

Cadyn gave chase but Willie was determined to keep it. They reached a standoff:

Cadyn persevered, however, and the binky was hers! 

Don't worry, the pacifier in her mouth was her backup, not the one Willie had!

I think Willie might just turn out to be a pretty good dog. He sure had a big time over Christmas, that's for sure.

He's lovely:) I noticed him in your last post and forgot to comment on him.

My mother used to have a dog called "Copper" who used to sing along with her but only on certain songs. Maybe Cassidy and Willie could form a duo! He must be a heartless beast though to steal from Cadyn, I think she could charm anything she wanted from me!

Willie is all about Willie right now, John--just like a kid :)

Rowan, we're having a lot of fun with him. He's so loving he gets forgiven for his misdeeds pretty quickly.

He certainly seems to fit in. We had a 5-month old Border Collie grand-dog for Christmas. Something akin to a pogo stick on speed.

I hear you about that Border Collie. They're great dogs but have a ton of energy. Nice description of your grand-dog!

What a cutie pie! He's saying that he's in need of lots of hugs and kisses. Belive it or not we named our older cat Willy.
