So we've realized Suka's favorite place to be brushed recently. He loves having his chest brushed even more than his belly! He starts to close his eyes and looks like he is falling asleep..that is until you stop. Then he "wakes" up and nudges you to start all over again. It's the funniest thing. He looks like he's in a zone or trance :) I can't blame him one bit though..Ever since I was a little girl I loved getting my hair brushed. It was so peaceful and relaxing and anytime I can get my kiddos to brush my hair for me- I'm There! :)

I won't be surprized if this one becomes a veterinarian when she grows up. She is wonderful with animals and loves them dearly (often prefers their company to human company!) :)
I cannot believe it's been about a month since the last time I posted. Where has time gone? We have been so busy with school starting, and we thought we were going to have to put Suka's older brother Takoda to sleep which was very traumatic for us. The vet prescribed him 3 medicines he takes daily and were warned that once winter hits he may go downhill again (his hips are very bad and he could hardly walk, now that he is on prescriptions, he is getting around better but when the cold temperatures start, the arthritis in his legs/hips could significantly increase. So at this point, we are taking it day to day and counting each day as a blessing.
Another thing has happened in the past month...My pup has gotten HUGE! He is only 6 months but he's looking less and less like a baby and more and more like a grown Dog! He's a good boy, he LOVES his daily walks now (we walk every night and sometimes during the day too) and he hasn't had an accident in the house in a while (although he is still outside alot during the day since the weather is nice) I have to keep the recycling bins pushed far away from the fence because he loves to SHRED things and he will put his head thru the fence and pull cardboard into the yard and shred it everywhere! He has torn apart more than one of my magazines as well, such a stinker :) Everytime we are in the house, I give him rawhides to gnaw on to protect him from seeking out things to shred for his enjoyment ;)
The next phase of life (which is coming soon) is will be getting neutered. I would have loved to have seen what his pups would have looked like, but there are so many animals in this world that are abandoned, homeless, euthanized, in shelters, etc..I just cannot bear to contribute towards it. Besides that, if he had pups I would have HAD to have kept a pup and we really don't need 4 large dogs! :)
