Sisters, Strippings and School

So I have a difficult ethical question. How bad is incest really? You see, I met my sister Early yesterday, and I think I might be in love with her! She is very petite and cute, and boy did we have fun together.

Here's a pic of me and Early on the grooming table. What do you think of her name? I think it's sort of silly - Early On? LOL, pretty funny.

I think we're very good looking siblings! Uncle Bob our breeder said I could have been a champion show dog if it wasn't for my curly tail! I'm quite relieved, I don't get kicks parading around a showring - I prefer to run and play with my pals!

Bob the breeder had a lot of fun pulling my hair out! I'm not sure why he insists on doing it - maybe he is cold in that big house of his and needed my hair to stuff his comforter? Who knows? At the end of being stripped, I felt a big chilly - but I do admit, I looked like a very handsome dude!

I was also very excited to meet some new little cousins. Five puppies! They were 12 weeks old and so very small. Mom kept on oohing and ahing and saying, "do you remember when Axel was that tiny?" It was embarracing the way she was carrying on. Anyway, in her defense, I went through my old photo albums and found one of my baby pictures. Wow, I was that small once too! That's me pictured right!

Mom spent Friday and Saturday in New York with her friends Liora and Al. I don't mind admitting I was pissed. Very pissed. First off - it didn't snow as promised. Second off - I was not taken along to Thanksgiving dinner because they feared I would attack the food and jump on the silly Yorkie puppy Rocky. And then, to top all that off, Mom up and leaves me for 48 hours! Don't get me wrong, I love my Dad, but he's been working his butt off - he was away all day Friday and Saturday, so I was oh so lonesome. I decided to pretend I wasn't even happy to see Mom when we picked her up from the train station. I ignored her totally. I know, I was mean, but she had to know that it wasn't okay to leave me for so long! She was pretty disappointed...she told Dad she had so looked forward to a reunion full of licks! After about an hour, I gave up my pretension and showed her how happy I was that she was home - I tried to unpack her bag for her. Needless to say, she wasn't very appreciative.

Tonite I start obedience school at the Suburban Dog Training Club. I hope it will be more fun than being hand stripped! I read on the website that they are going to try to teach us to heel, stay, sit, down and come. Haha, good luck trainers! Bet they've never trained a wire before! I intend to give them a run for their money!
