How to keep a 9o kg+ body cool on a 48* day!

Its a hard thing to do & his most favourite way is under the table in the air conditioning 😆

But evry now and then he likes to exert a little energy play under the sprinkler:

And when your aslong as he is you have to cool each section before laying under the water 🙂

He’s definately your Daddy!!

Went visiting Boofs  puppies again last week. They were 4 weeks old on Sunday (18/1/09) & weigh over 3kg each!! They are doing really well & there has been interest in buying them already!! If anyone reading wants details on buying email me & I can let you know the details 😉

They are eating weetbix, chicken mince & rice and still feeding from Mum, but Mum gets some alone time outside now which she is throughtly enjoying (hey dont all us mums enjoy that alone time?!)

Who’s your Daddy???

We went visiting today & theres no denying it Boof has mini Boof’s out there :lol:!!

These gorgeous guys & gals are Boof & Minni’s 2 week old pups & they weighing in at 1.5 -1.8 kg already!

Poor Mum was having trouble keeping her milk up to them, so they are getting bottle feeds as well as Mum feeds.

They are all totally gorgeous (just like their Daddy) & no we are NOT having any!!

Big does not mean brave~!

Boof & I went off to the vets today, its been 12months since his last visit so all he needed was weighing & needles 🙂

Day started well opened up the car & in he shot looking very excited, last time he went in the car he got to shack up & spend the night making babies think he thought he was in for more of the same :lol:. So 10mins into the trip he is bored, snoring & farting in the back of the car……..joy!

At the vets he jumps out all excited, in we go. Boof sit ohh good boy now just step onto the scales……………..Boof I cant lift you mate please step on the scales………look I’ve got cheese your favourite treat in the world…………..no you are not going to just stick your tongue out & get the cheese.

Plan B lets try again go for a walk round waiting room cheese sitting on the scales vet ready to help and…………..one paw on the scale……….two paws & 2/3rds of the body, vet tries unsuccessfully to push the rear end on 😆  saw a reading of 80kg cheese eaten & now no part of dog on the scales. Ok thats close enough he says lets go to the exam room. 😆

Boof is very well behaved & just stood lapping up all the attention to his heart (oops sorry vet about the hairful of slobber you got while listening to his chest) teeth, eyes, ears and all the pats of course, but when the thermometer was put on the table I just laughed……….and fed Boof lots of cheese!!! Takes a while for the signal to get from one end of his body to the other he is over 6ft long now! So that went well, more cheese good boy Boof. Needle in all the extra loose skin he has round his neck………Boof get out of my bag i know thats where the cheese is!! Thanks doc will go pay up & go home 🙂

Out to reception, I can see Boof thinking WTF  looking at the big burly bloke sitting there with a fluffy Maltese on his knee.(not sure if it was the bloke or the dog that looked like our cat that puzzled him) Big burly bloke avoids eye contact with me a size 12 lady whose dog weighs more than she does. Bill all paid more cuddles from receptionist who doesn’t mind Boof slobber & out to the car we go…………….What no way Boof get in the bloody car please I cant lift you in remember we tried that very unsuccessfully  on the bloody scales that were only a 2inch step up so there is NO WAY in hell I am going to get you into the back of the cruiser! Shit shit shit………lady in the shop I can see you giggling at me trying to coax my horse I mean dog into the car! Back to the vet can I have some help please??? Lovely receptionist comes to my rescue & together with me in the back of the car pulling & her at the back of the dog pushing we load him in we look round for our treats/rewards realize we are covered in Boof slobber & laugh.

I swear next year I am either hiring a horse float or telling hubby its his turn! Wonder what he will weigh then as he hasnt finished growing yet!! 😮

My newest trick

Is to get on the lounge when the humans leave the room !!

I almost blend in with the cushions. They keep putting me back on the mat on the floor though cheeky buggars.I mean just coz I gained 3 kg again this week (19kg now & I am 11wks old) anyone would think I will outgrown the sharing the lounge stage. I will still share so long as they let me lay on them LOL

I have also got the sit & drop down which delights Mum into giving me more treats, though I can be stubborn in who I show it off to.

Growing rapidly

well Boof is now 10wks old & he has DOULBED his weight from when we got him 4 wks ago. He has grown heaps & looks more like a dog than a pup now. He is now 16kgs, 18inches tall at the shoulder & 45inches from tail tip to nose tip

Since last Saturday he has been sleeping outside of a night (still with Elmo) & he spends most of the day out there playing with Denim(our 4yr old blue heeler)

He is a real goofball & loves to come in for playing & cuddles which happens often during the day & he has a big session in after tea until bed time, mind you he wont go to bed until we are going & all the lights are off. If he falls asleep on the floor & I put him out he will sook & sook to come back in if the lights & TV are still on!!

here he is enjoying a shower

and drying off on the mat afterwards.

Look at that face who could resist him?

He has 3 meals a day of pet mince & biscuits & then a treat or two when we are doing training (sit/stay/drop etc)

Visited the vets today

They were great in letting me leave them there while I had my new tattoo done, saved me another trip tomorrow as its over 50k’s one way to Geraldton.

Stitches had her stitches removed & has healed wonderfully. Not a mark to be seen.

Boof was micro chipped & had his first round of needles. He sooked when we left him & apparently sooked a bit in the time he was there. But they loved him. And well who couldnt love him? Just look at the beautiful boy
