12 Weeks

Nothing like a puppy to inspire blog posts! Indy turned 12 weeks old today, so here are some pictures of his day.

What a face, huh? Upon meeting Indy, everyone always comments on how much they love his black ears. As Barb says, she couldn't have done a better job if she had painted them on herself!

Indy has mastered the fine art of the play bow. Here he is trying to entice Tess into playing with him. Doesn't take much. Both girls love to romp with Indy.

Here's Indy with Jazz's birdie toy. Barb bought Jazz this toy for her first birthday and it's been one of her absolute favorites, and now it's one of Indy's favorites, too. Believe it or not, this little birdie just turned three years old and still chirps!!

Jim likes this photo of Indy because it makes his legs look so long and his feet look so big. Actually, he does have pretty big feet. Puppies grow in spurts. Last week, Indy looked real leggy. This week it seems like his body has grown so long. Who knows what's in store for this week coming up!

We continue to be amazed at what a good puppy Indy is. We've put away his puppy pen and he's earned a little more freedom in the house. He's learned sit, down, "watch me," spin, twist, and leave it, and we're working on stay. This afternoon the girls were playing what we call the "on-off" game where they use their paw to turn music on and off on a gadget that looks like a Staples easy button. In no time, Indy was using his paw to turn that thing on and off, although he wasn't waiting for us to tell him what to do. He just kept turning it on and off because, well, he could!


  1. Happy 12th Week Old pup! You're such a darling! Hope you have a great day today, well, no doubt about that :)

  2. Once again, I told you so. I am glad Indy is turning out to be the sweet and smart guy that Barb and I thought he would be. He is a doll. I love that face!

  3. AWWWW...Thanks for putting a smile on my face! Sister Emily celebrated turning 12 weeks by going to Twin Lakes and meeting lots of people and dogs. She is smart too! She discovered that everyone who comes to pet her gets a small treat to give her. She figured out very quickly that the treats actually came from me so she would sit and look at me then the person and back at me and as soon as the treat was passed she would wiggle up to the person for her pet and treat! Alas.. I think she has me trained....

  4. It's a good thing I am so far away .... I might try to kidnap him for some puppy time! Barb - I want one just like him in about 3 years I think.

  5. He is absolutely adorable ! ! ! WHo couldn't fall in love with that smart handsome boy. And speaking of handsome little boys, I just put a couple of new pics of Patrick up on his blog.
