Another visit with Yule

Yule’s Mom, the Wealthy Heiress, decided at the last minute to take a quick trip to San Diego. I think she gets bored quite easily so she often needs to jet away for some stimulation. That’s good for us because it means more time with our good friend, Yule. I hear that Yule is maturing nicely. When he first went home to live with the Wealthy Heiress Yule experienced some serious separation anxiety but the word know is that his Mom can leave him at home with no issues. It took a lot of work on her part but Yule…

Yule & Chief

Yule departed yesterday after a visit lasting 2 1/2 weeks. His Mom, the wealthy heiress, reportedly had been gallivanting around Europe with a 17-year-old high school student her teacher son and 17 middle school students. When I have Yule here I like to introduce him to new dogs in hopes of widening his circle of friends. As you may recall, Yule is not the trusting type when it comes to dogs he is not acquainted with. He used to bark furiously whenever he as much as saw a strange dog at a distance. Looks like we messed up some numbers…

Yule’s in the house

Yule arrived last week for a 2 1/2 week stay. Hurray! Even Lilly was excited to have Yule visit. That’s significant as they had some fireworks during their 2nd cohabitation. I like to have the inside dogs out in the front yard when we’re expecting a boarder. Sometimes we have to do an introduction or a re-introduction. But I always like to see how excited Scrappy gets when Yules comes. Both Scrappy and Lilly love to see Maria (Yule’s Mom). There was a time when Scrappy considered Maria to be his mortal enemy. No more.   What happened next was…

Yule drops in

Yule’s Mom, the wealthy heiress, decided at the last minute to spend Christmas in Vienna. Something about the skiing being outstanding there this year. Yule, of course, is always welcome here. That makes five for Christmas. Yule. My Scrappy. My Lilly. More on her still to come. My beloved Shaggy. A Homeward Bound alumnus. And Molly. She’s here from Homeward Bound because she likes to “mouth” people hands a little too much. Make that way too much. But she’s improving.

Catching up

I had mentioned that I had a few canine guests over Thanksgiving weekend but I’m just now getting to Yule’s photos. He makes a good subject as always. Yule did well with Lilly although she is still wary of him. He also spent a little time with Buddy out in the yard a couple times. Yule doesn’t realize what an imposing figure he cuts. Inside he can be a frightened little puppy. Yule is big — part Great Pyrenees — and has a massive head that I love to rub. Scrappy and Lilly form the welcoming committee — loud as…
