Maddox the Excavator

Maddox is too busy being, well, busy these days to write in his own blog, so I am for now. He has been a real pest the last few days. I think he has Husky Fever or something--the cooler air is making him be sooooo bad!!! LOL. Okay, actually he is just being a typical huskyboy. Nothing wrong with that. He is five months this next week, and is starting to show shades of the beautiful boy he is becoming. His ruff is thickening, and his guard hair is pretty long though I don't see him as fluffy. He weighed in at 27.5 lbs. yesterday at the vet's. I thought it would be well over 30 by now, and in fact the vet said if he was hitting around 35 by his 5 month mark, he'd probably be over 50 lbs. He's not gonna make it, and really that is fine. Shelby is 43.4 lbs. at last weigh in and she is just lovely. Still needs a few pounds though...

I love how they look when they run in the backyard. I really don't need to take them to the dog park, they have their own back here. LOL. I still wish there was one close by, sigh. Fort Woof is about thirty minutes from my house, so isn't convenient.

Anyway--pic spam! Okay only 4 pictures, but... I took this picture last night, and was really struck by his features, how strong they are. My baby is gonna be very handsome!

Maddox, the Puppy King

On this one, they heard the boys making noise in the other room. I was trying to get a still picture of them playing with the dinosaur, as they were playing so sweetly together, so quietly, but oh well. But what I like about this is the shape of the back of the heads, and how it can be seen that despite being younger and weighing less, Madddox's front part is so big compared to delicate Shelby. It looks like if they'd be the same size getting up, but they aren't.

Oh I had this one, too. Kissy faces! These two truly adore each other. I think Claire may be a bit sad, as she has been thrown over for Shelby. But Maddox was getting too rough with her, too hard on her, and I had to keep her from getting hurt. What cracks me up is my daughter said today "Shelby is actually pretty mellow. She's not a bad dog at all." Apparently she thought I was getting another wild man like Maddox, another baby, ready to tear up the world. Nooooo!!! LOL. One crazy Sibe is enough. Maybe it is a boy thing? In any case, Shelby fits, Shelby is beautiful, and Shelby is polite. I love that! And very sweet, too.

And lastly, this is Maddox's digging hole. It is not the best place, but I guess if he is going to dig, this is the easiest place to clean up, and so far he's left under the fence alone. Shelby does not appear to be a digger, but he gets her dirty. He is so bad!!!!!!

Maybe Shelby-Shel-Seashells will gain some weight when she doesn't have to compete with animals inside of her for the food!

She might get bouncier too!

Oh, I've never dug in the dirt. That looks like so much fun. Wait till I get back outside.

Your playtime photos are cute. You'all play nice.

They sure look happy together! I'm glad things are working out so well for them. I like how Shelby has her paw on the stuffie!

One good way to get a Sibe to stop digging is to put poo in the hole, and then cover it back up. They won't (or shouldn't) dig up their own poo. That's how mom got Abby and Samuel to stop digging holes in her yard. (well, most of the time)

We love the kissing picture. Our dad puts poop in the holes we dig too. He ruins all our fun. I hope Maddox is digging a tunnel to our house.

Great pupdate! Puppies are so much fun, but I agree they can tire you out!

Shelby is a pretty girl! You are so lucky to have a live-in girlfriend, Maddy. But nothing beats tormenting big brothers. I wuv to dig, too. Maybe we can go into business together.

Oh Maddox, you're not bad, you're a husky! All 4 of us dig, I was thinkin of chronicalling our excavation efforts in my next post. Mommy says "No Way are you posting pictures of your landscaping techniques, I'd be TOO embarrassed". I guess you'll see from our post who wins this arguement....
