Our time with the happy noodle doodles is coming to a close. Fourteen days remain! Last week, I took Reggie in for a dental and growth removal on top of his head. I want to make sure they head out of our home in good health. He currently looks like “franken-doggie” and irritates the sutures every time he finds a leg or the couch to rub on. Fortunately, it’s slowly healing. By the end of next week we will have the sutures removed and he can finally get in for a bath and clip.
The boys sleeping in the dining room. Not much room for us to eat at the table!
Zeek is in full coat right now. He will be making one more trip to the groomer before heading back to Bend. I’ll really miss that big curly coated crazy dog! I’m not certain what will happen with so much less dog mass, mud, and love in the house. Guess we’ll cross that bridge when we get there!

The count down is official. We have under 40 days remaining with the noodle-doodle boys. I just can’t believe 18 months have slipped away and I have to admit, it makes me very sad. They have become so much a part of our household. What will we do without the curly coated Zeek? What will Moby do without his play buddy Reggie? On the other paw, the cats have been counting down the days since the boys were dropped off back in August 2013. They are anticipating indoor life again. It’s been rather hard on those two. We have finally reached a cohesive mass of acceptable dogdome. Fights are rare. I’ll even miss not seeing my groomer (and I certainly never thought I would be saying that!). At least they will be going back to their real mom. She is in for a few changes with their diet and medication additions.
All we can do is keep soaking in their love. There’s always plenty of that to go around!
After a nice breakfast and a play session with Moby, Reggie is taking a break as the sunshine starts to touch the deck. Another beautiful morning with smokey skies from many wildfires.
I’ve been playing a bit with the phone camera functions. Top image is the altered, bottom is original. I can tell this might become obsessive! This is what happens due to work influences. 🙂
Reggie and Moby
These two are best buddies, well, for the most part. Reggie loves to initiate play with Moby and does so on a daily basis. I don’t see the same sort of play ever happening between Zeek & Reggie, which is a shame. One would think 2 dogs that have lived together their entire life would play some. Zeek tends to do more domineering sorts of behavior rather than play. Well, at least two dogs are happy to play together as equals! I know Moby will really miss Reggie when he leaves… but that’s still a long ways off!
Sorry Amee, Reggie sleeps on the couch and bed. It’s not a regular thing, but it happens. 🙂
