We took Miles to PetSmart for the first time on Saturday. He was the star of the store. Everyone oogled at him. We want him to be really comfortable around all people and other animals, so it was a good exercise. We bought him a name tag, toys, and a bed, among other things. We spent a lot of time talking to their very friendly, helpful staff as well as other dog owners who inquired about Miles. We even bumped into another (larger) Pug and a (very large) Puggle (Pug+Beagle). Oh why can't they stay little!?
I've starting calling Miles Stitch (from Lilo & Stitch). He makes these strange alien-baby sounds when he's in his aggressive-play mode. To hear it, you'd think he was being tortured, but really he's just a little crazy-like. I lay him on his back, his ears flip up, his eyes go wide, his little legs start reaching, mouth opens up and the sounds start coming. I'm going to try to get video of it sometime...it's pretty hilarious, though not a behavior I intend to tolerate for the long run.
More of me being extra casual on an absolutely perfect Saturday afternoon. I know shorts get a bad rap sometimes, but I've come to really appreciate shorts and their versatility in my wardrobe. I don't love them quite as much bare-legged in the summer as I do paired with tights and boots in the winter, but they're so easy, can be dressed up or down, and either keep me cool when it's hot or add an extra layer when it's cold.
I refuse to give up my jewelry just because I have a puppy to consider. Puppy is just going to have to learn that certain things (basically everything but his toys) do not go in his mouth. I do anticipate a few wardrobe (& household) casualties in the learning process. BUT since Saturday was sort of all about the puppy, I gave it up...for the day. Not even wearing my diamond stud earrings and feeling a little weird about it.
