It's still a Bugg's world! I'm Just Glad the Dog lets Us In.

We have already been through Bugg's morning routine, we are now carrying on with his afternoon play time. I also added a tip that I use for Bugg, while he goes through his teething stage.

Bugg wakes up.

Bugg has just awaken from his nap and it is 12:00 noon. When Bugg stretches and finally gets all the sleep out of his eyes, we go to his playground in the backyard. I allow Bugg to run around. While I sit on my bench, make phone calls and of course...

Watch Bugg.

Bugg rarely digs holes but, he did today. When Bugg does dig a hole, he digs with so much vigor, you just know there has to be some type of treasure at the bottom of that hole.

As far as I have seen, there is no treasure at the bottom of that hole.

Maybe Bugg thinks...

If I get dirty, then just maybe, my mama will play water with me again.

All I can say with Bugg is...

Who knows.

I know there is treasure in there, I just know!

I know Bugg is digging up my yard but, this is how I feel about it....

Having a dog is like having a teenager, You must pick and choose your battles.

I have learned with both, as long as you have taught them well from the start, you do not sweat the small stuff or you would go nuts by the time they're grown.

Some things are just not worth stressing on, Bugg digging a hole every now and then, is no biggie, so I allow him to just have fun.

When Bugg has dug up all two acres he gets to roam around in, then maybe I will say something but, until then...

I am not sweating.

No treasure, No Mr. Cat

Bugg just roams around his playground for a bit, him stopping every now in then to look for his friend, Mr. Cat.

Nope Mr. Cat is no where to be seen.

So Bugg and I go inside.

Bugg is also tired.

Digging for buried treasure is hard work.

Bugg loves his playpen

After I refill Bugg's ice bowl, he and I go out on the front porch. Maybe Bugg can visit with all the new friends he is starting to make.

We have chicken wire all around our front porch and it reminds me of a baby's playpen. So we call this Bugg's playpen.

Bugg also brought out two of his toys, Ziggy Piggy and his rope.

Bugg loves to carry his toys around. Bugg will not hurt his Ziggy piggy but, Bugg loves to chew on his rope.

Having a toy for your puppy to chew on, just might save some of your furniture and do not forget they are teething.

Also, even if you decide not to give your dog ice full time (As we do for Bugg), put some down for them to have during their teething stage.

The ice will dull the pain while they're teething.

Bugg spots a Friend

All of a sudden Bugg jumps up. Bugg looks out of his playpen to see if it is his friend, Mr. Cat.

No, it wasn't Mr. Cat, it was just that mean Mr. Squirrel.

The pesky one that throws pine cones at my Bugg.

Did you notice, I also make sure Bugg has a bowl of ice laid out for him.

It gets hot where Bugg lives, in Alabama.

Bugg chills

Since that was Mr. Squirrel and not his friend, Mr. Cat. Bugg decides to go lay down at the far end of his playpen. This way then, Mr. Squirrel will not be able to hit him with a pine cone.

Bugg also loves this view of his yard.

Yes, there are times Bugg will just lay around, not many but, Bugg does do it every now and then.

During these moments I just sit back and relax. I know it is only a matter of time before Bugg will be up and running, once again.

Mama, Snack time!

Well my relaxing moment is done and over with and yes, it was just for a moment.

Bugg gets up and walks to the door, he stops and looks at me to say "Mama, it is my snack time, thank you very much".

Bugg is not very patient at this time, he knows he has a treat coming.

Bugg is really getting impatient with his slow mama, just remember...

It's a Bugg's world.

We just take up space.

All Dogs scream for Ice Cream

When Bugg first came home with us as a small puppy. I would give Bugg his ice cream at night but, since Bugg tends to play so hard during the day time, I have decided to give him this cool snack during the middle of the day.

The yellow snail Bugg's paw is on, is his favorite toy. Mr. Snail is the first toy Bugg ever got. I have sewn it together so many times, I have lost count.

Bugg has never hurt his snail, he just carries it around. The times it has had to be mended, is from me washing it and it tears.

Bugg takes a nap

After Bugg eats his ice cream, it is time for Bugg and I to take our nap.

Puppies are like kids when it comes to playing, as long as they are not stopped, they will play until they drop and that is just not good for them. They need to recharge their battery.

I know this is Bugg's world and all but, not only does his battery need to be charged, so does mine.

I lay down on the guest bed, while Bugg plays on his bed.

Bugg grabs one of his toys and today, it is Ziggy Piggy.

Bugg plays with his toy for a few minutes and then decides he is thirsty. You know that 'Mama I'm thirsty' thing us parents went through with our children when they were told it was bedtime.

This is Bugg's version, his ice.

Bugg 'finally' falls asleep

I finally have to take the bowl of ice away, give him back his toy and then tell him, this is nap time.

I find puppies are like little kids, they are so afraid they will miss out on something if they close their eyes and so they will fight that sleep as long as they can.

So, you just have to take away any distractions, give them a toy, make them lay down and then they will eventually give in.

Will Bugg be back after his nap?

Sure he will because...

It's a Bugg's world.
It's Not the end of Bugg's world, it's Just the end of a Dog Day.

Thank you Lucy for your kind words.
I have to say, over the years, with the few dogs I did pick (the others came to us) from a litter,
I picked the right ones every time.
Bugg was one of 13 and he caught my eye from the start.
I find Bugg is no exception, he is a great one for sure but,
he does earn that name Buggah at times.:)
