That's Mine!

I think it's cute that Brody knows what stuff is his.

I don't mean things like his toys or his food (although he knows those are his too as he lives by a "what is mine is mine, and what is yours is mine too" motto), but things like his collar, leash, boots, coat, bandana.

He doesn't like me to take them off. I get the "That's mine, mom!" look. Even after putting his bandana through the wash, when I pulled it out of the laundry he KNEW it was HIS and came running over. Grab his leash or collar and he comes running over with the "That's mine! What are you doing with my stuff??" look. It cracks me up.

Take his plastic crate to clean it out, or take out his blanket to go wash it or shake it out or just put it back in nicely and the LOOK I get!

He knows his toys by name too. He's fine with me taking his toys or his food and stuff like that. He even knows the brush and comb are his and even though he doesn't like me using them, he sure comes running when I handle it, just to make sure I'm not wrecking "his stuff" I think!

I've been a bad mommy lately and not bathed him in ages (or properly brushed him out either). After a bath last night and a good combing out, he's a fluffy puppy once again. I put on his Halloween bandana again because he likes it so much. So here are a couple of pictures.

Haha I know that look! Cey knows what is his and what isn't but he doesn't care if I do anything to any of it except for his crate. He absolutely positively HATES it when I mess with his crate. Whenever we are going to anybody else's house for more than an hour, I bring his crate (and, food bowls, toys, treats, etc lol - it's worse than when my daughter was a baby!) so that he will have a sanctuary (and, I can lock him in it for short periods of time if necessary). I just turn it sideways and pack all of his stuff in it, but as soon as I touch it I get the worried looks and he follows me around and/or stays right by the crate watching every move I make with pleading eyes! I can tell he is trying to say "Moooommm what are you DOING?!". Once, before I closed the door on the top but while everything else of his was in it, he even jumped in it and sat there looking pathetic because it was sideways and already full of stuff lol!

Anyway, adorable pictures!! Thanks for sharing!

Sissy knows what is her stuff, too! It's cute to watch.

Brody looks very handsome with his grooming!

Jack claims ownership on everything he sees. Who cares if it actually belongs to someone else. Poor Nessie has no more toys.

How cute he looks! He is so smart knowing the names of all his toys, too!

All toys, bones, chewies, blankets, pet beds and anything that rolls belongs to Tessa. Poor Cooper owns nothing now and if he tries to chew a chewie or bone, she sits beside him with very sad eyes and tries to get it away from him. My guys know the names of their favourite toys too, its cute when you ask them to get ducky and they actually bring it back to you.

Very cute pictures of your pup.
