Little Sister is EXHAUSTING ME!!!

Wow, having a little sister is tiring business, she is a non-stop furball of energy!
This morning Dad took us both to the field and the lake (no photos as he had his hands full with us) and then this afternoon Mum, Dad and the Beans took us to the woods.. Mum had charged up her other camera so we were able to get some shots of our walk.

Back to the car.. we were both pretty pooped at this point..Millie was truly filthy, honestly the girl is an absolute mud magnet! The photo's don't do the filthiness justice.. she was plastered in stinky mud!

Then home.. after a little de-mudding I allowed Millie on MY couch..

So far so good. We have behaved very nicely with each other despite the fact she would steal my food out of my mouth given half a chance (Mum says we need to work on her food manners) I have shared my toys, even allowed her to sniff around in my beloved bed and the biggest test of all.. allowed her on MY couch! I'm sharing Mum, Dad and the beans nicely too.. although Mum says I am suddenly giving her more kisses than usual and claims I am jealous.. pah! rubbish.. I'm not jealous at all!!

I'm VERY happy with my new sister and would like to thank my angels at Pawz For Thought for not only rescuing me and giving me a whole new life and future but for the wonderful gift of a beautiful sister too! All the Pawz Angels work so hard, are so committed to the rescue and welfare of the animals they take in and do it all out of the kindness of their hearts, no wages or benefits!
They are truly special people and I hope they realise jut how much their hard work, dedication and friendship means to us. I LOVE YOU ALL!!

The furball of endless energy seems to be taking a nap (thank doG!) so I shall take this opportunity to grab 40 winks before the insanity starts again! Sorry we haven't done much visiting this week, we will get round to you all very soon .. once me and Mum have recharged our batteries!!

love and tailwags,

Ben xxx (and puppy kisses from Millie xxx)

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, Ben, we feel so sorry for you. NOT! You're having a ball and we know it. It must be nice to have a companion to play with, even if she does steal attention from you and share your .... everything, except the food in your mouth. Good job of sharing.

Abby said...

Hi, Ben...

Looks like Millie is fitting in nicely...

Wow...One day there & a bath already...That has to be a record of some kind...

Have fun, you tow...

And, come visit me if you have a minute...I have my Birthday Contest going...

Martha Basset said...

Hi Ben
Loved all those pics of you, Millie and the beans!
Our mum can only take pictures when someone else is with her although we think she should learn to multi-task!
You are sharing very nicely although Bailey says you will need extra attention, having a new wee sister is all very well but remember you were there first!
We agree with everything you say about Pawz - they are the best.
love and kisses
Martha & Bailey xx

Petey said...

LuLu and LoLLy! said...

Dear Ben and Millie, Hi! Gess what? What! gess! OK! We are sisters, and it is very Two Paws UP! 2 have someone to snuggle with and play with and also, it is clear that Millie will be an egstremely good dog due to her already having the outstanding talent with the mud! YAY for Ben and Millie! And also for these very outstanding piktures. And ALSO, Millie is kind of like LoLLy, in terms of a name, in that it kind of ends the same way. and ALSO, LoLLy is a rescue, and we set up our website to draw attenshon to rescues in a very fun and happy way and so we have a whole page of links to shelters and resources and stuff and we want to put the Paws People on there but every time we click on the links they say error so anyway, we wrote them an email but we didn't hear back but that is OK becuz we know how busy the rescue humans are, and they are very awesome for what they do. So if you have a chantz when you talk to them you might tell them to have their Web human check on it! OK, Two Paws UP! again for this outstanding report! Love, LuLu and LoLLy!

Tracey and Huffle said...

Millie is positively adorable and reminds mum of her baby Max who is over the rainbow bridge these days. You are lucky to have each other!

FleasGang said...

You two look great together! We're so happy everydoggie is behaving themselves. Little siblings can be extremely exhausting for sure. So get in your naps when you can :-)

Snowball said...

Congratulations, Ben. Isn't it fun to have a little sister to play with you? You 2 look identical to us from the pictures. Perhaps you could give us some close up pictures of you both to help us learn how to tell you apart.


Rambo said...

Oh no Ben. I know exactly what you mean. I have a little sister too! Sometimes she is such a PIA (pain in the a--) but sometimes she is alot of when we play bitey face and chase. Then I like her. But not when she steals my food.
Good luck,

The Army of Four said...

Ben! You and Millie look so cool together! A team of Rotties! I'm so happy for all of you. Aren't little sisters great!!?

taz and all the dogs in need said...

What a handsom pair you make Ben. If if were not for people like your loving family, rescue volunteers would not have such great homes for the poor rescue dogs to go to.

The OP Pack said...

Millie is very nice - you both have similar markings. Looks like you are both having lots of fun together - she just has a longer lasting battery than you do:-)

Tail wags, the OP Pack

Bobby said...

I am pleased you are getting on so well, her brother has a load of energy, but I am glad to say its just short bursts.
John thinks he will be a big lazy boy.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Oh we can relate. That little Callie never snows down either.. She is almost a year now and no sign of slowing down yet.. Remember be careful not to break her like we did Callie...
She is such a little cutie..

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Eric said...

Cara said...

Hi Ben and Millie

I am glad you are getting along.
It is nice to see Millie remembered my lessons on the wonder of mud, it is good for a girls skin.
Thank you for the treats you left for us.
I am sure Millie will slow down soon she is probably still at collie speed, you will soon show her how to be a Rottie

Your little mad collie bud

Huskee and Hershey said...

Comet and BLU said...

It looks like Millie is giving you a run for your money. You are so nice to share you stuff with her. Just think, for a little while, you can probably get away with doing naughty things and blaming her!

A big hug for all the family!
