When I Grow Up...

When I grow up, I want to be just like Jazz!

Lately, Indy seems to be trying hard to be just like Jazz. Since she was a pup, Jazz has loved to lie on the back of the couch like a cat and nap or watch birds out the window. Well, today I caught Indy trying his best to be like Jazz, but he can't balance himself on the back of the couch yet, so he had to do the next best thing and lay just below her on the arm of the couch! The picture is not the greatest because the sun was shining in, but I had to laugh at Indy trying to imitate Jazz.

Here's Indy lying with Jazz in the big dog bed in my office. It's funny how he's been trying to do everything she does lately. Fortunately, Jazz is quite tolerant of having a little shadow following her and imitating her. Perhaps she's flattered!

Indy turned 18 weeks old today. I still can't believe how great he's doing! He's a very good boy in the house, and his training has been coming along well. He had his first puppy agility class this past Thursday, and our instructor was impressed with how long he worked and stayed focused for his age. He also tried a bunch of new things in that class with little or no hesitation. We're starting to introduce him to the doggie fitness equipment, too, and he's done well with the balance disc and balance pod. Indy seems to love trying new things and learning, and he's a quick study, too! I think this little guy is going to be quite fun to train and compete with. He certainly has a sweet personality and gets along well with the girls, and that was the most important thing for us.


  1. All I can say is AWWWW. If he isn't the cutest little thing ever. How sweet that he wants to follow in his big sisters foot steps. They are awesome feet to fill. You guys are going to have so much fun with that little dude.

  2. Oh my gosh he is so stinkin' cute!!!! Maybe I could just borrow him for a little bit? Steeler also loves to sleep on the back of the couch - if there is still daylight when I come home I can see his little nose in the window. Glad to hear that he is doing so well and the girls like him!
