Water - the source of life. Regarding Lennox - truer words have never been spoken! It does not matter where we are, he will find water, if there is some. I would nearly compare him with a divining rod ;o)! If we aren`t sure about the water situation at our destination, we are well equipt and take some H20 in bottles with us ;o). Lennox is what we would call bottle-fed, because you could call him a "pro" looking how is drinking out of a bottle! "Well, more is better than less!" He for sure will never suffer of thirst;o)!
Lennox is becomming more and more artful in his play with other dogs. On a daily basis there are new moves to watch ;o). His latest trick is the following: to jump all over his opponent and push him down with his whole weight - which by now - is quite a bit...before the other one get`s the grip again - Lennox will disappear like a ball-lightning over the field ;o)! He is becomming a real "Houdini".
"The early catches the worm!"
"Early riser" - that would describe me pretty well. But Lennox - again - excelled my expectations ;o). We have a saying "the dog`s are like their owner", but, I never got up between 4am and 5am, not by choice anyway ;o)! Lennox is full of energy, and at the moment we can`t expect more than 6 hours sleep in a row of him ;o). But what can you do! To have a puppy in the house is no walk in the park - but still better than having a baby ;o)!
"Sleep - 1A"
If Lennox is sleeping - and that`s not very often - than he really wants to enjoy his sleep! Until he has found the perfect spot and the right position, it can take ages - sometimes even more than 60 minutes. The young man is high maintanance ;o)! If the surroundings are perfect - it can start - and with a perfect roll on his back, Lennox is on his way to "wonderland" ;o)!
Even during his so beloved "puppy-play" Lennox has always time for a break! He is a little bon vivant and does not like anything or anybody to disturb him ;o). Sure, if we leave, he is right behind us - but to be honest, a little break won`t do us any harm either. So sometimes...we just relax together! ;o)
If Lennox is one thing for sure - he is a real curious boy! It does not matter if we are in the woods, at home or on the road...he has to investigate everything ;o)! Stones, roots, pieces of paper...that really does not matter for him. Yesterday it was a thick and happy bumblebee! This little happy chappy was flying from one flower to the next when Lennox spotted her - he just could not resist this loud buzzing noise! So, bum in the air and front legs on the ground...now those two were ready to say "hello" ;o)! When that was done and over with, both went on with their own ways, doing what they were doing. Nice ;o)!
"Magic Cap ;o)"
Sometimes I really would wish for some kind of a magic cap. Well, what I am just dreaming of - is not at all a problem for Lennox! He just follows his nose, to the next most disgusting smelling thing he can find - never mind if it`s something dead, rotten or whatever - looking back at me, before turning around and doing a headjump into the rotten whatever in front of him! I am freaking out - he really does not understand my behaviour, instead he is a real happy chappy! Because now, he would be ready to go out for a hunt, if, yes if his two legged-companion would not stand in his way ;o).
I don`t really know if this kind of stuff is a phenomenon of "our time", but there are really people who believe a dog would be a happier dog if fed Vegetarian! I have no clue if I should shake my head about this kind if attitude or laugh about it ;o). Taking it serious, is surely no option! Lately I had a woman talking to me: "Really, my dog would never eat something with eyes!" For sure, I thought to myself - our dog would! ;o) That`s for sure, if Lennox would not be fed raw - he would go hunting for himself! A real self-supporter! Because our little one isn`t one thing as sure as death - a Vegetarian! ;o)
I could watch "our" dogs play for hours! It`s just fascinating to look at them learning for life while playing and trying out all "possible and impossible situations that can happen in a dog`s life" ;o). At the moment their clear favourite is "Defense and Blocking". Just Awesome! Between all these "Block-moves" there is always time for "showing off" sprinting over the field and checking out who is the fastest this time!! So sad, that this time is passing by so fast!
Surely, this year`s summer does take it`s time to arrive, but for a real water rat, just bad weather is no reason for holding back ;o)! Lennox has his clear "Favourite Spots" around the Munich rivers and creeks. If we go there, we better are prepared - that our grey dog - will come back to us as a muddy brown piglet ;o)! He will wade through water, make head-jumps into the deep water and dig through the soil close to the banks (who knows, maybe he is looking for a treasure)! We all are really looking forward to warm and sunny summerdays, but I am nearly sure, Lennox is looking forward the most!! ;o)
