HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

We’re off to a lazy start this year…It’s already been over a week into the new year and this is our first post! BOL! So far the year has been off to a good start. Some good sister bonding and a little bit of mischief ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s time to play!

And we’re off!

Taking a break from all that running! I hate to admit it..but Nymeria is too fast!

What? We’re just innocently sniffing here!

Nymeria may be faster than me but I can hold my own when we wrestle!

Aaaaannnnddd….What’s Monday without a bit of mischief?? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Mischief Monday

Got the monday blues? No worries! Just roll in something stinky and all your troubles will go away!

I think I could hear my humom yelling something at me but I was too busy rolling. It takes a lot of concentration! You gotta make sure you REALLY get that smell in your furs or in my case…my sweater!

Nymeria: Hey what are you rolling in?? Can I have a turn???

Humom: Oh no you don’t! Don’t you dare Nymeria! I don’t need two stinky dogs in the car!ย 

Nymeria: That’s not fair! How come Mia gets to do it?

Humom: She doesn’t “get” to do it. She’s being a very naughty girl right now by not listening to me!

Nymeria: Oh…I see…she looks like shes having so much fun…Wish I could get just a little taste of it…

 

Nymeria: Hey Mia, are you done yet? Hurry up, I wanna go play!

Nymeria: C’mon let’s go! How much more can you roll in?? C’mon! C’mon!

Mia: Okay okay! Let’s go! Tag! You’re it!ย

What? I wasn’t doing anything….I was NOT rolling in stinky stuff. Nope nope…and even if I did….How could you stay mad at this face?…Amiright????

 

Heehee…

 

Did you guys get into any trouble today?? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Breakthrough!

We made our humom cry the other night…but don’t worry! They were happy tears! Actually I even surprised myself because Nymeria and I played together!

After we had a long evening walk, we had dinner and then we started wrestling! Our humom couldn’t believe it she had to capture it on video!

We played for quite a while and we made quite a mess! We were all over the couch and all over the floor! Our humom didn’t mind, she was just so happy we were playing she didn’t care.

Nymeria kept trying to get me play when I was taking a water break! This pup doesn’t slow down!

Oops! Did we make this mess???

Man I’m really tired after all that playing!

We were utterly exhausted after all that playing, it’s time for bed! Good night!

Throwback Thursday!

Hi guys! Nymeria here! Mia was nice enough to let me do a Throwback Thursday post since I haven’t done one yet!

As you know, my humom adopted me from Spain. I was already about 8 months when I was flown to Canada so she missed out on my little puppy stage. The rescue guessed that I was about 3 months when they found me so my estimated birthday is sometime in March of this year!

Look how tiny I was!

They found me with a male galgo. They suspect that he could be my father but no one knows for sure! He was very timid and shy when we came into the shelter but I was a little firecracker! When they found us, I was very friendly and greeted everyone with tail wags and back flips!

I was always ready to play! I hope my galgo friend eventually found a furever home.

Even at this early age I was already into tennis balls! Mia better watch out! She’s got competition!

Here’s a little short video they took of me!

 

I have such a wonderful life now and I am so thankful for my new family and friends. I hope all my Scooby friends back in Spain will find furever homes too.

I’m still getting the hang of things here in Vancouver. I’m still weary of strangers especially men but I’m sure I’ll come around someday. Just not yet. Mia and I are starting to play a little bit more together and I’ve made some wonderful new friends like my fellow galga Avalon! Isn’t she beautiful?

I will always be grateful for the wonderful people that took me in and saved me from the streets but I am looking forward to the next chapter in my life. Everyday is a new adventure! Thanks for reading! Come back soon for more updates! ๐Ÿ™‚

Sunday Funday!

The sun decided to come out for us on our walk with Wilhelmina, Avalon and Duffy today! At first we didn’t know if it was going to rain so the humoms made us wear all our rain gear.

But as soon as the sun came through the clouds, off came the jackets! Of course this meant more photo taking. Sigh….Can we ever just go out for a walk without a photoshoot???

In their defense, the humoms said they just wanted to show off all our beautiful colors and markings. Well in that case…okay FINE…but just a few! Then we’re off to play!

Mia: Are we done yet???

 

Hope you guys had a good weekend!

Forced Sister Bonding

My humom is starting to worry a bit that Nymeria and I won’t get along because I’m still a little mean to her when we play outside, or if I try to play with her indoors she ignores me. We don’t like sleeping close to one another and I still get a bit protective over MY humom.

Nymeria has been with us (and in this country) for 4 weeks now. She’s made some progress with other things like potty training, and socializing at doggy daycare but our humom thought that her and I needed some good sister bonding time. Blah.

She thinks that playing fetch together isn’t good enough (because it becomes competitive) and that we need a nice long walk where we can both run free. She decided that the jetty would be the best place to take us (the forest has too many little animals and smells, Nymeria would never come back). We usually go to the jetty with my bestie Wilhelmina and Avalon and Duffy but this time it was what I call “forced sister bonding time”.

The walk started off okay I guess…Nymeria got excited about a bunch of birds in the water.

Nymeria: Hey Mia! What are those white things in the water?? How can we get down there?? I wanna go see!!

Mia: Relax, they’re just birds…probably just lookin’ for fish. We’re not allowed down there. Are you going to be this annoying the whole walk??

ย 

Nymeria: I’m not annoying! You’re annoying!

Nymeria: Have you looked in the mirror lately?? I’m “bigger” than you!

Mia: Fine, then that’s what OLDER sisters are for! ๐Ÿ˜›

 

Mia: I’m going to go find something stinky to eat or roll in

Nymeria: Hey wait up! I want to come!

Mia: Hey! What’s that over there?

Nymeria: Where? What? Oooo…I think I see something!

Mia: I saw it first! It’s mine!

Mia: Are you kidding?? They’re delicious!! Er..I mean…no they’re alright…save your palette for something tastier. I’ll take this one.ย 

 

Humom: Uh no, none of you will take this one. I’m throwing it away!

DF144843-322A-4C53-950A-C7D13F63CE5D

Mia: Sigh FINE…I’ll go look for something else before you can stop me!

Humom: No you will not. You will sit pretty and take some photos with your sister.

On our way home, Nymeria was totally passed out on the car.
