My dog blog this week is all about Puggles! Max and I have been friends forever or so it seems. He is a year older than me and wiser (at least that is what he says!). I usually follow his every lead. If Max hunts for gophers, then I am normally right behind him hunting as well. Max taught me how to climb on tables and chairs as well. So when he climbs on the picnic table at the dog park, I am right there with him (always a sight to see!). Sometimes I make it, sometimes I don’t. Basically I look to Max for all his Puggle wisdom even though he can sometimes be very silly……
Enter Lambo! He is a five -month old Puggle who is new to the dog park. Lambo looks like a younger, cuter version of Max. Let me tell you that little Puggle is wild! Lambo is super fun and silly. Max’s Mom watches Lambo and says that Max used to be cute like that! Hmmm….I am not sure that is a compliment for my buddy.
As I met Max when he was almost two years old, Lambo gives me a glimpse into what Max was like as a puppy. This little puppy greets everyone at the entrance to the dog park. He has no fear and will run after any dog (large or small). Lambo does not stop moving ever — I get tired just watching him! Occasionally, he will fly by me but before I can even respond, he is on to the next dog. What amazing energy that little guy has! I am secretly envious. Can you imagine if I had just a little of that? I would be unstoppable….
If I had met Max when he was Lambo’s age, I am not sure we would have become best friends because I would not have been able to keep up with him. I believe that Max and I met at the perfect time. Max was older and a little less crazy while I was still in the crazy puppy mode so we were perfectly matched! We love to wrestle and chase each other (Max will always be faster than me though!). It is funny how timing is everything. These days besides an occasional wrestling session and gopher hunting we sometimes just enjoy hanging out.
We are getting older you know….
