New Toys and Friday Forest Fun!

Hi Friends! It’s finally Friday! How was everyone’s week?

We’re so happy that it’s FRI-YAY! That means our weekend adventures are about to start! We haven’t had the opportunity to show you all the Christmas loot we got this year (WE GOT A LOT!) but definitely our FAVORITE gifts was…

…NEW CHUCK-IT BALLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mom, stop taking pictures and throw the ball already! Look how nicely we are sitting and patiently waiting!

Wilhelmina’s Humom bought them for me! She knows how much I love to play fetch. And because I’m such a nice sister, I shared them with Nymeria too. (I should get some extra treats for that!)

My humom was very thankful for Wilhelmina’s humom for buying me these balls because I like to chew on them. Tennis balls aren’t very safe for pups like me because we can ingest those tiny yellow fibers and it’s not good for our tummies!

I love you, little blue ball. You are my best friend (after Wilhelmina of course!)

Nymeria is a very quick study. She’s already learned that she has to sit before our humom throws the ball. (In my case she makes me lie down because sometimes I get impatient and I jump up to grab it. That is a BIG no-no…humom gets super angry when we do that). Nymeria is also figuring out that she has to bring the ball back before the next one gets thrown.ย  She’s not always consistent but for 2 months being here, I’d say she’s doing really well!

Here’s a video!

Do you remember in my last post I mentioned that Nymeria was really fast? In fact, sometimes TOO fast for me? Well, when it comes to chasing balls, she’s got nothing on me! Sometimes I’ll give her a chance and let her have the ball ๐Ÿ˜‰

Nymeria is trying to get the ball from my mouth! But I caught it first!

We’re ready for the next throw!

Just when we thought the fun was over, our Humom took us to the forest!!!!! We thought we were going home but nope, our humom thought we could run around in the forest a bit! I was soooooooooooo so so so EXCITED!!!!!

We haven’t been able to go to the forest as often as we used to because my humom is still working on Nymeria’s recall. Since she is still a little nervous with strangers, we tend to go to off leash areas during non-peak times. Today was one of those times so Nymeria got to explore off leash on the less busier trails! She was SO HAPPY! She was really good too, she stuck close to me and Humom and when she saw other strangers walking by she would just hide behind a tree and watch them go by and then come back out.

Certain areas my humom will put her on leash because she doesn’t want Nymeria to get startled and run off deep into the forest where we can’t find her. It’s hard to find a time when the forest isn’t busy because it’s a very popular place, I mean, who wouldn’t want to take a stroll in a beautiful forest surrounded by trees, birds and water?? So any time we do go into the forest, it’s a real treat!

We had so much fun exploring together! We got super wet and muddy! It was great!

Unfortunately…the muddier the adventure, the higher change of a….BATH!!!!

Hurry! Give your best puppy dog eyes Nymeria! This is our last chance to change her mind!

Telling by how dirty our collars were…chances were slim of getting out of a bath…

In the end, it was all worth it! Boy are we pooped!!! Time to rest up for our next adventure tomorrow!!!

Good night friends! Hope you have a great weekend!

It’s time to play!

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

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

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!
