- Likes to "stick his tongue" to things and suck you. He will lick and it sticks for a few minutes.

- Sucks on his teddy bear, the ears are really gross and he has moved on to the nose. He licks it for about ten minutes and sucks it. He is sad when the bear hits the washer. This bear is almost dead and I can't find a look alike - it's going to be tramatic.

- When he wants something he leans in slighty and touches you with his nose, very gentle, but will sit next to you until you respond

- Has to carry something in his mouth when he greets anyone and talk

- If something different is in his food bowl, he wants you to feed it to him, or he won't eat it.

Faith does obessive licking on things - like the arm of a chair, or on her pillow (yes, she is spoiled rotten, she has her own, real pillow).

A quote from Trixie - Am thinking about bacon. Bacon is very good. I am good too, me, Trixie Koontz, dog. People call me "good dog, very good." Bacon is very good. But I am not bacon. Why not? Mysterious.

Caleb tries to trade for things. It started because our instructor told us to trade him for things that he steals rather than take them out of his mouth. So now if he really wants something, like my sandwich, he'll bring me a toy and drop it at my feet. Then he gets a very expectant look on his face and he waits for me to give up my sandwich. Silly pup!

He also sleeps with his eyes open, on his back, crammed into his crate sideways.

And when I give him an apple or a tomato, he plays with it before eating it, tossing it and pouncing on it.

That's what I was thinking! And I also think it's creepy that you have a collection of detached eyeballs lying around your house!

Now that's an idea! I like it
Actually the eyeball-otomy is her first incision in her de-stuff procedure. After that, we have a toybox full of blind pelts.


The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.

Yes, I had actually write one of those "Yes, my dog did eat my homework" notes. We tried taping it all back together...
