Welcome to Week 3 of the TUC Dog Days of Summer! It is my pleasure to introduce you to Cody, Lola, Archie, Rivers, and Bruno. A rambunctious bunch of bow-wows…

Puppy Love…
We were in the process of looking for a golden doodle puppy, because we had heard so much about their fun, loving personalities…and then, we heard through some friends about a four-year-old golden doodle that needed a new home since his old family was moving to Africa. We went to meet him, and it was pretty much puppy love at first sight!!
Never met a stranger…
He LOVES to wedge himself between your legs as his way of greeting both complete strangers as well as those he knows well…always makes for a great first impression…

The other white meat…
Lola can eat a 5 lb. raw pork roast in under 1 minute.
Get up and go…
Archie’s morning routine is to put his butt in the air and his head/ears on the ground and scoot across the carpet (not butt down, butt up!)

Staredown…  
When he wants food, he starts spinning in tight little circles.  Also, he will sit and stare at the biscuit jar until someone responds/gives him one…literally for hours.
Snuggle bunny…
Rivers is nothing but affectionate.  He sits with me, wherever I am, and makes himself available:  no jumping up, no aggressive friendliness…he interacts with me on my terms.  He’s such a selfless thing – he makes me so happy.

Bruno
No Gnomes…
So, one day my husband and I were taking Bruno on a walk through the neighborhood. As usual, the Garden Gnomes who “haunted” the yards of the neighbors were freaking him out. As did the little girls who came flying out of their driveways on scooters. However, when the woman riding a horse (don’t ask) came parading down the center of the street he was cool as a cucumber.

I hope you enjoyed meeting this week’s pups. Next week will be the big finale, with a special surprise. In the meantime, what is your favorite summer activity with your furry friend?
