The Master

Our George is the master of puppy dog eyes.





Don't you just want to kiss that pink spot on his nose?

He loves to chase balls but usually tears them apart after a day or two. We got him some of these Chuckit! Fetch Balls yesterday and he did not stop bringing it to us to throw from 2 pm until midnight. He's like a perpetual motion machine. No wonder he's so skinny! But when he looks at you with those eyes you have to pick up the slimy wet ball and throw it for him. Even when he drops it right on your knitting.

Use the chuckit, you never have to touch a slimy ball again and can throw so much farther

Buy the rubber balls made by Kong. They are truly indestructible. They come in lots of different sizes and shapes and are great.

Wow, that is one skinny dog. But, from the sound of it, he's so busy playing that there's no way he'd have time to eat enough to fatten up.

Wow, he looks like he's lost weight since the last post of him. Maybe with all the excitement of being in a new family with a dog he gets along with, he's a bit more energetic? Hopefully, he'll mellow just a bit soon. He looks like a sweetie.

With puppy dog eyes like that you'd think he'd be huge with all the treats and love you want to shower on him. He's adorable. Have to check out that chuckit!

Eyes of Human Control, beware!

Wow, he makes my yellow (well, peanut-butter-color) dog look hefty.

I don't know that my yellow lab was ever THAT energetic, but he still wouldn't quit retrieving EVER. My arm would fall off, Chuckit or no, long before he seemed to get tired. What saved us was a good solid retrieving toy (like a kong on a rope or Chuckit ball that will reliably float) and the Sound. McKinley would go through waves breaking over his head to fetch things ... and the swimming tired him out a lot faster than just running around a park or the beach. He was wet and salt-water-smelly afterwards, but sand was easier to wipe off than mud!
