Solar or Hydro Powered Puppy?

Each dog has his or her own loves and preferences.  When you add a new pup to the pack, his loves unravel like a mystery.  Part of the magic of bringing in a new dog is watching his personality and habits emerge.

First, we're pretty certain that Fenway is hydro-powered.  Or maybe solar-powered.  I say this because he can always be found diving into the water bowl, gulping down huge amounts of water.  We still have him on kibble, which makes him drink more than the girls; but holy cow, can that dog put some water away!  He's like a camel!  It's truly impressive for his small and Runty stature.  "Runty" is his nickname, by the way.  He didn't want me to blog that, but it's irresistible.

If he's not hydro-powered, then Fenway is certainly solar-powered.  I've posted several pics of him laying in the glorious sunbeams, luxuriating in their warmth.  I suspect we'll need to get this guy some booties and a coat for the winter months, much to Matt's chagrin.  He won't argue too much if I suit him up in skulls...

The girls are still getting used to him, but now they're both playing with him.  Like the shiny new toy, he's in big demand.  We'll just have to get a bigger water bowl and slide his bed closer to the window.  I think we can handle that...

Check out my latest article on the health benefits of walking with your dog on The Examiner, Dallas!

And also please stop my Etsy store for some Halloween goodies!


  1. Let us know how the booties go. I've heard some really funny stories about dogs in booties!

  2. Fred drinks like a camel, if you cant ever find fred just go to the water bowl! Im glad things are going well with Fenway.

  3. Well, things sound like they're under control at your house. This guy would probably be very happy with a pool to play in during the summer.

  4. Hi Y'all,

    Sounds like the girls have figured out that we guys are fun!

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  5. Bella's definitely solar powered. :)

  6. I have a variation on the theme. My Boston is wind-powered! When she feels the first crip, cool breeze of Fall she gets the crazy eyes and zooms around the yard/house. It is a site to see.


  7. I think we have a pack of snow-powered pups...they seem to be solar-powered until the cooler weather comes! Then step aside, please! They are snow and wind powered!


The girls and I love to hear from you - please leave us a note!
