The Nose Knows

After days and days of rain and cabin fever, we finally had a pretty day of sunshine! We raced outside and had a super romp around the yard. Glynn was so excited that she must have sniffed over every inch of our great outdoors, and when she came back inside, we noticed her mustache was green. Where she stuck her snoot to turn it green, we don't know, unless it was all that wet grass she sniffled through. Whatever color she is, I still think my little sis is cute. Here's a goober shot of her (she didn't like having her close-up picture taken, can you tell?). I call this one GooberGlynn.

Ol' Buddy Buck has settled into our home and doing well. Yep, he's here to stay. No more foster home, it's the real deal for him. The second day he was here, he showed me how to lift the latch on the gate with his nose and open it up. Well, why didn't I think of that? Would have made things much simpler, I can tell you. The gates are usually locked, but he was watching and timed it just right when Mom had her back turned. Unfortunately, we were rounded up and put back inside before we could make our getaway, and locks put on the gates. Well, I'll just file that tip away for future reference, though. Good to know.
So what have your noses been up to this week?

I'm sure glad you have given Buck a home. What's with his owners giving up on him? It was probably something they were not doing correctly.

Have fun with Buck.

Jake of Florida said...

What a clever new pal you have in Buck. We see lots of interesting adventures (aka trouble) in your future!!!

Nose to gate, hmm? When I (Jake) was a puppy, I learned how to unlock the crate I was being trained in -- and that was the beginning of my whole house freedom.

Never thought of the nose!!

Lots of wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Hi Tell! We're very glad you are letting Buck move in with you permanently. We're sure he has lots more to teach you besides how to open the gate...although, that can be a very important lesson if you WANT to give your people a heart attack. We're just sayin'...

Pawsome that Buck is with you for keeps Tell. He's a smart one for sure making his home with you and then showing you the open gate trick. Thanks pal to you both for passing on the tip now if Glynn could pass on his green moustache tip too that would be pawfect!!
