Boxing Day Visit!

Boxing Day started off with a bang!
Jim's sista, Paula had facebooked me last night 
to say she and her hubby Graham were coming for a visit.
Turns out that Paula's daughter Jami and hubby Dustin 
were on there way from Antigonish, a 2 hour drive from here.
NOW...the special part about this announcement
 was that their dog Fenway, a Boston Terrier,
would be visiting as well. 
She's a load of fun and energy!
Fenway is as quick as fox for sure. He grabbed my new Orbee play toy and
proceeded to dive into my mouth. 
This new toy was obviously a hit.
Mama Jami looked on as we rough housed it for awhile.

Graham (left pic) and Paula(right pic)
were so patient with our antics.
You know, sometimes us puppies just can't control ourselves!
After everyone chatted and had munchies
Jim played 'The Dog Whisperer' with us.
The learning session was't too long
but I know it was good for Fenway!


  1. I love your new toy, I think my kids would like that, they play that game a lot! It looks like you and Fenway had a ball in that free-for-all on the floor in the living room!

    What did Fenway learn when Jim played Dog Whisperer?

  2. It looks like all kinds of fun to me!


  3. Fenway looks like a real athlete. He's so little and quick that he can twist and turn really well. But, looks like you held your own really well. I want to know what Jim taught Fenway, too!

  4. Nice that you had a Boston Terrier to play with. I was stuck with 2 three- year olds - trying to stay clear of them. Gracie.

  5. The Dog Whisperer lesson for today was...How to cut the whining crap! Seems to have been a good 1st step.

  6. Don't you just love friends and NEW toys!! You guys must be exhausted

  7. Hey B & L....exhaustion....what`s that....;-p

  8. Great Boxing Day frolic! Looks like you've had a good day.

  9. Well I can see you had a great Boxing Day, Miss Sophie! That toy looks like it was made for 2.
    Fenway sure has a nice shiny coat. Our Clifford's girlfriend Gossamer the Borzoi came on Christmas day, and he's still tired!

  10. Oh boy, Sophie, we love all those same things, running and wrestling and especially playing in water, any water. We love swimming, but them water is our middle name. Looks like you and Fenway (what a great name) had a good time playing together. We'll be back to check in on you.

  17. Hi - Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am your newest follower as well. I absolutely LOVE your header picture. Boy that toy looks like lots of fun!

    Your pal, Pip

  18. Dear Sophie, I just love your blog. First of all, you are so clever with your brilliant blog header : ) and the picture you have chosen is perfect in every way. It totally gives me insight into your gorgeous head : )

    Love that you got to play with your friend Fenway. I think those little bug eyed dogs are pretty interesting to look at.

    Wishing you the happiest new year! Love, Becky

  19. hey Sophie! it looks like you did have a lot of fun with Fenway. what a funny little friend.

    that dog whispering sounds kind of scary. did you get trained?


  20. Dearest Sophie, The hounds from Greyhound Gardens think you are absolutely beautiful.

    However, they want you to know that you can keep the water. :o)))

  21. hi there girl... who's a good girl? come on, whooooooo's a good good girl....? why, you are! pretty baby...

    sounds like you had a fun visit and i'm glad ceasar milan was part of your holiday as he has such nice things to teach you... and he's cute and cuddly lookin, too, isnt he?

    you are one lucky girl to live by the beach like you do... i would like to watch you run and play on it!!! enjoy your life, precious... now, who's a good girl.....?

  22. what fun...Roosters daddy thinks he's the dog whisperer too...

  23. Thank you so much for visiting our blog.. Sophie is a cutie and looked like she had a great time with Fenway. We are new followers.

  24. What a cool name for a BT! They ARE fast, at least when they are puppies! He is so frustrating and frenzying to my other two, but it is good for them.

    I'm bummed I missed out on this pet party; I was out of town. Next time.

    LOVE the picture of Teacher Jim telling them what's what. Priceless!

  25. I forgot to say, I am taken aback at Fenway's tail. I've never seen a BT with such a long tail. Are their tails usually docked? I didn't think so, but now I am wondering. I will have to look into this. Interesting.


This 'DOODLE' is looking forward to your comment....don't be shy...all I do is SNIFF & LICK!
