An Update on Angus...

He's growing like a weed...

For about one day, he had one upright ear, and one floppy one...SOOOOO cute!
 
Now, he fills up your lap, and his ears are upright and HUGE!
 
 
He's pretty laid back, and as happy-go-lucky as ever!
If Sister does it, Angus does it too...

...and that includes wrestling...LOTS of wrestling.
 
He likes to get cozy...
 
 
 
...wherever he might be!
 
Everybody loves him...
 
...and he loves everybody!
 
He is a great foil for Olive's intense personality and ever-present agenda. His presence is making her a better dog. All that pent up energy gets spent, and we can actually make headway in getting her to obey and listen. And Angus follows along. Just by observing, he has learned that you must sit to get a treat. It's so cute!
 
Daisie is very intrigued with him because he has posed no threat, and is obviously in awe of her! That never happened with Olive! Daisie tries to play, and likes to herd him around, and he obliging flops belly up to let her know that he respects her. Daisie can't believe it, and doesn't know whether to take advantage of his submission, or just play...They are pretty funny together.
 
He's reached a lanky and gangly stage lately. His ears and feet are still out of proportion to the rest of him which indicates that he will be bigger than his sis. Olive has her solid miniature draft horse rump, and Angus has a skinny bony one...so far! It's gonna be fun to see what happens when he is full-grown.
 
For all his sweetness, and good cheer, he is a puppy, and lately he has a thing for socks...We can't leave the laundry baskets on the floor because he will find the socks (and only the socks) and take off with them. This always ends with Big Sis saying, "You can't have that!" And she tries to take it away from him -- which of course results in a protracted and noisy tug-of-war.
 
And my socks end up looking like this...
 
Oh well, makes for cheap dog toys...although if he doesn't grow out of this fond affection, it does not bode well for our sock drawers...
He's easy to bring along on excursions, and Cait loves to do it. He always gets a lot of attention...The Little Charmer knows how to get inside your heart.
 
And don't feel badly for Olive. She gets to go running with Girl, so Angus' excursions are equal time.
 
So that's the latest and greatest with little Angus. He's a wonderful little guy...
 
...and a great addition to the family!
