Kaia teaching Yuki a lesson

My two wonderful companions have given me many hours of laughter and continue to make me smile especially when I have had a rough day at work. Kaia is getting more and more comfortable as time goes by but she still bosses Yuki around. On the other hand, Yuki is a lover not a fighter. He allows her to get away most times with bossing him around.

However, they are fiercely protective of each other and is adamant about not letting anyone they don’t know get too close. This I am thrilled about but they are sweethearts nonetheless. By now we humans -hubby and I- are well trained, but are kept in line whenever we step off the path. I love my dogs, no matter what.

Growing stronger

The bond between Yuki and Kaia is still growing and getting stronger day by day and for that I am glad. I know that Kaia is getting more comfortable with her surroundings since she has taken to copying most things that Yuki does like going under the bed and sleeping on her back. She is even more playful and doesn’t mind rolling on her back before she would put up a fight to not be on her back.

I have continued to cook for them– now instead of baking the chicken I boil it then pick it apart, mix it with a little white rice and some crushed peas and carrots.

I found a new, financial economic, groomer that did a wonderful job on both dogs. They were both happy when I picked them up especially since they got the royal treatment and soon it will be time to take them again.

Kaia still lets everyone within earshot know that she is in charge whenever we go outside for their daily walks/potty moments. She has proven to be quite fearless with the way she sometimes take off to confront the neighbors but I am still determined to train her to be without her leash sometimes. I don’t want her or I to be totally dependent on the leash though I know that it is necessary. I think I am the only dog owner who absolutely dislike leashes and cages. I don’t and refuse to own cages or crates for the sole purpose of putting my dogs into them when we leave the house. Probably the only way I will use one is if I have to travel on a plane and then I know that I will find the airline that will allow me to pay for an extra seat so that my dogs don’t have to be treated like cargo which they most certainly are NOT!

My dogs are very important to us because they give us unconditional love and appreciation. Just the sight of their precious faces and their tails wagging put a smile on my face and allow me to start my day off beautifully. What would we do without them, my little bundles of joy and inspiration ๐Ÿ™‚
