Our miss noughtie is three months old today and she just gets cleverer and cleverer each day.
Since we came back from the UK, she's amazed us with her constant antics makings us laugh.
Well, what makes her so funny?
She's so clever she's almost human and she can even communicate with us (in her doggy actions)!
If she wants to play, she'll bark to get your attention and pick up her toys (indicating it's play time).
If she wants to go potty, she'll bark until you take her out.
And she LOVES LOVES LOVES belly rubs and playing flips and cuddles.
When she's out and knows that we want to take her back in, she'll run under the car and then a game of chase begins.
If she sees us going right to catch her, she'll go to the opposite direction, left, and vice versa.
Essentially it's a game in which nobody succeeds and human and dog are going round and round in circles.
Yesterday, I left the playpen out in the garden, put her in it, and did some work in the kitchen. Suddenly I heard a bloodcurdling yowl!
I ran out immediatley but Laura was even faster than me (I don't know how an old lady like her could run so fast); she went to Eva and nosed her and licked her (how adorable!!!). So what happened to Eva?
She obviously didn't like the confinement and wanted her freedom so she decided to try and stick her head in the gap connecting the two fences together. Well, her ear brace got stuck to it real bad and of course it hurt her a lot. I had to pull the brace out of her ears and I think she was in a lot of pain. Laura and Mika were so sweet to come and see what went wrong. Laura does have a maternal side to her even though she never got the chance to be a mother. After the incident, I couldn't help but cuddled Eva for about 5 minutes - the poor girl. I hope she had learnt a lesson that day too.
Eva's also getting naughtier and naughtier. My sister is a night-owl and when Eva was with her for those two weeks, they had lots of late night games. However, she brought this habit home and requested to extend her playtime after her supper for the past few nights. I tried to ignore her after the supper last night but she turned her playpen upside down within 10 minutes. At last, I gave in by playing with her and I was so exhausted as it was so late at night. Finally, I threw in a plastic bottle as a new toy for her and it worked. Phew!!!
But, what am I going to do tonight?
