I talk a lot about my love for Freckles but how can I not when he is so awesome. This is Princess A at about three months old and Freckles watching over her.
Freckles has always been protective of Amelia but their relationship has gone throw some stages.
First, he was confused by her.
Stage Two, he wanted to lick her all the time.
Stage 3, he was jealous of her.
Stage 4, he realized he got more attention if he did cute stuff with her.
Stage 5, she became mobile and he became scared for his life. Lots of tail pulling occurred during this stage.
Stage 6, they are basically the same size although Freckles weighs more. Now they play together all the time and there is lots of baby giggling. They are basically best friends forever.
I know their relationship will go through many stages but I hope they are always BFFs.
On Easter Princess A wore 2 outfits. This is her casual look. We went for a walk in the park in the morning. I love how her butt sticks out when she walks!She loves walking with Daddy!Princess A has not mastered turning around yet but when you hold her hand she lets you know which way she wants to go.She also likes to be lifted in the air by Daddy.It was so sunny out it was hard to get good pictures but I think we did pretty good!Then we went home and gave Princess A her Easter presents. The Husband gave her these awesome wooden blocks. Freckles was happy because he loves to chew wooden toys.We put her gifts in a pink sock monkey basket.We also gave Princess A some beanie babies. She was not shy about letting Freckles know that they are HER TOYS and not dog chew toys!

My friend Sumner came over and took these pictures. They are very appropriate because this is the first thing you see when you walk in my door… a dog nose. Freckles will jump on you and lick you all over and if you have any food with you FORGET about it. If you didn’t know how much we love and care for Freckles you would think we starved him of attention and food. Neither is true. He eats his food and our food. When he is done eating his food (which is usually the same thing we are eating but in a dog bowl) he starts to beg for food from us. He would eat all day if he could. Why are dogs ALWAYS hungry?Freckles sleeps in our bed, gets tons of walks, fetch time, and belly rubs but if one of us leaves for even five minutes he cries and then sniffs around the apartment for us. It is the saddest thing ever. I wish I could talk to him and say, “Daddy, has to go to work and will come home later like he always does.” or “I am only leaving for 30 minutes so I can get some alone time.” But alas, I can not talk to him and he always acts like he is being starved of everything in life.Here is Freckles eating a bone in OUR bed even though he has 2 dog beds and one cage. Does this look like a dog who doesn’t get enough love or food?
Anyway, do any fellow dog lovers have any tips on getting their dog to calm down and realize how loved they are… and why do dogs always eat like they haven’t eaten in years…. even after they have finished a huge serving of spaghetti and meatballs?

As I have said before I LOVE LOVE LOVE putting Princess A in cool band t-shirts. I also love her in yellow so when I saw this Pink Floyd shirt at Area Kids in yellow I had to have it!
Princess A is teething really badly so she takes her dog bone everywhere. I don’t think Princess A is ever not teething! People are shocked when they find out she is only one because she has so many teeth.For some reason she decided her dog bone needed to be in the monkey part of her zoo.So she chewed on her thumb for a bit.Then she chewed on a ball.Neither worked so she went looking for her dog bone and it was not where she had left it!She found her dog bone in the our dog’s mouth… weird I know. She was happy to have her favorite teether back!Since Princess A was having a rough go of it I decided to try and dress like her in solidarity. The Husband tried to get some pictures but Freckles kept jumping into the shot.We tried to get him to sit next to us in the picture but he prefered to jump on The Husband and in front of the camera lens! Oh well, at least he made Princess A laugh!

I hate chicken bones. But you know what I hate even more than chicken bones?!?!?!?! The people who leave their old chicken bones on the streets of New York!!!!!!
Last night, I was walking Freckles and he jumped forward and grabbed something in his mouth. I looked down and it was a chicken bone. This chicken bone was literally 3 feet from a trash can. I hate lazy sloppy people.
Anyway, if a dog eats a chicken bone they can die from the splinters. So I grabbed that chicken bone out of his mouth as fast as I could and I got a cut on my hand because if you try to take a chicken bone away from a dog they will literally bite the hand that feeds them. It hurt but at least I got that chicken bone out of his mouth!
This is not the first time this has occured. Freckles finds a chicken bone and succsesfully gets it in his mouth once a week. I see chicken bones on the street almost every day! Not only is this disgusting but it is heartless to the dogs of New York City. I got Freckles when he was a small puppy and I have done my best to raise and train him but I don’t think any amount of training can make him not want a bone.
So please New Yorkers… for the sake of cute dogs like Freckles everywhere… throw your chicken bones away in a trash can!
