Gohan's buddies Go Big Time!

Big Dawg is only 2 years old, but the ol' dawg crew is pushing past 15 and 16. It's taken quite a bit to get used to my buds and their new challenges, but it's worth it. Heck, they never complain about me!

Well . . . not in front of me at least.

Why is this dog EATING MY GLOVES?!???

No glove is safe around this digit hunter. At the tender age of 6 months, he devoured my favorite suede gardening gloves and now he specifically looks for the five fingered treats. He is definitely my insane clown dawg. He hid several pair of cotton garden gloves. But he didn't stop there - he stashed a red fuzzy mitten under the bed!

I've smacked him on the nose with my glove and he just laughs at me (yes, Akita's do laugh - loudly I might add). Just last week he found my new husband's work glove and did the shaky head thing with it in front of my face. After that he just puts his head down and goes into his crate (he assumes that I'm going to burst an artery yelling at him) and smiles like "Oh. Was that YOUR glove? Forgive me. I lost my big meat head for a minute. I won't do it again . . . until the next time."

Big Puppy-head makes it to 2

My big fat puppy-head at a year old - a year ago today. It's his birthday and we just found him immobile on his crate floor after snatching an unopened jar of peanut butter treats and scarfing them all down. Looks like he had the mother of all stomach aches. Greedy little meathead.
