January 2011: Two feet of snow falls on top of December's one foot. Elmer loves it; Lucy, our step-dog, hates it!
December 2010: Elmer got a squeeky shoe toy for Christmas!
September 2010: This year had a bumper crop of apples. We have to constantly yell at them to STOP eating them. (Ruby gained at least 5 pounds.) With Gracie, their visiting cousin, I decided to try some self-control, followed by permission. They were all mistrustful of the go-ahead. Get the apple!
May 2010: I got a new camera and it takes better movies, particularly of black dogs playing.
December 2009: In a similar vein, what could be better than a gift-wrap tube?
June 2009: Elmer is pretty good at entertaining himself. Here, he works his stick!
02/03/09: Elmer is 19 weeks old, and keeps getting bigger, dammit! It's snowing hard and Elmer is bored, so he decides to gnaw on Ruby. In January I put up some bad videos on YouTube, which I took with my geezer camera.
Elmer & Ruby Play!
Elmer Pees & Pounces!
Elmer Gets the Chuck-It!
Below are some action stills from a recent rumble.
This is Elmer, Ruby's new sidekick. He's pretty new, as you can see, and Ruby is showing him the ropes:
Monkey in the Middle!
Chillin' in the Kitchen!
Do-si-do with the Chuck It!
Here's how Elmer got started: Mother, Soffie (a great-niece of Ada's), is the dear girl of the Gilmors, the famous glassblowers in Millerton, NY. Father, Yeager ("Yegs") lives in Providence, RI and is a hot shot on the hunter trials circuit. He's a Big Boi. Elmer's litter had 3 yellow brothers, a black brother and black sister. He was born on September 22, 2008 and we kidnapped him on November 20.
Like all puppies, he's good at sleeping anywhere, anytime. We have lots of dog beds, and the comfort of Rex's arms.
