It’s the Great Pumpkin, Cecily

Cecily had a wonderful first Halloween.  The weather was glorious and she played outside all afternoon with her friends Charlie and Yogi.  She didn’t mind her great pumpkin bow too much and unlike Linus, she didn’t have to wait all night for the Great Pumpkin to come.  Two great pumpkins came to her doorstep.  She bit the stem off one and demolished it pretty quickly and then went in for some serious pumpkin licking.  She also went in for some serious barking at the trick-or- treaters but she’s well known in the neighborhood and didn’t manage to scare anyone.  Her greatest moment was when she got her nose in a neighbor’s glass of warm apple cider – even tastier than the pumpkin.

Cecily Goes To School

Cecily has started a course in agility training and loves it.  There are about seven dogs in the class and so far they have learnt four  skills – UP ( running up and down a steep board), WALK (running up a steep board, across a long narrow board and down another steep board), TUNNEL (running through a wind tunnel) and JUMP (jumping over three jump obstacles).  Cecily’s favorite is WALK.  She surprised the trainer by running over the entire WALK board all by herself!  We are excited to see Cecily learning new skills and looking forward to finding out what new challenges are set each week.

Cyrus responds to call name “Ciuey.”

Ciuey, pronounced like Chewbaca’s nick name, “Chewy,” lives with his two human litter mates to make a lively three-boy family!

Cecily is the third puppy in Rosewood’s C litter.

Cecily is now seven months and she is beautiful. Her coloring is lovely and the hair on her ears is crimped into little locks. Her black earrings are growing longer and her tail is a feather plume. Cecily is always busy. Her almond eyes are full of mischief. She is the quintessential nature girl, happiest when she is running like the wind, scrambling up rocks, chasing birds and squirrels and digging holes.

In this year’s summer heat wave in Atlanta there’s nothing that Cecily likes better than simply messing about in the creek.  Cecily is a water baby.  A few times a day she finds her own way to the creek that runs below our house to cool down and do some doggy paddling.  She loves to have sticks or pebbles thrown for her to chase and show off her swimming prowess.  And the great thing about her coat is that it’s drip-dry – a few shakes to make sure the humans got wet too, a roll in the grass, and a good brush down and she’s good to go.

Hello, and good-bye

Hello, and good-bye

The party is over, the house is empty, the farewells have been said and the tears have been cried. The laundry room is empty: no more ragged old towels litter the floor, the puppy toys are stashed, the bowls washed and the washing machine and dryer silent after their heroic efforts to supply the puppies with clean bedding each day.
