Here's a display of the smarts of our pups, and another reason why you need to always watch them, boy are they smart and sneaky!!  Steph just told me she saw Dakota taking mouthfuls of cat food, (which she knows she's not supposed to eat, and won't even go near if we're in the kitchen) bringing them over to her dish, dropping them in, going back for more, and then finally eating them! So if anyone looks, it looks like she's just innocently eating her food lol.  Guess it's time to move them to a higher spot for now lol.  Luckily she's so tiny she can't get up on the counter or table or anywhere else, so that will have to do for a while.

I'm not too sure she's gonna get big enough to counter surf lol.  She's about 17 inches and  about 23 pounds right now at about 4 1/2 months.  She was doing a steady 2-3lbs a week, then kinda slowed down, she was 21 as of 8/31.  Other parts of her have been growing, but i'd be surprised if she ended up more than 40-50 lbs.

Kevin, OMG!  I can't believe how smart she is!  That is pretty amazing - and funny!  Ginger is a small dobie, too - 45 lbs., but she has no trouble countersurfing.  Can't reach the backsplash but does just fine with anything that isn't pushed back as far as possible.  Ginger was the one who ate a whole bowl of chopped onions when I went to answer the phone.  I was making a broccoli salad for a party.  That was the year Pres. Bush gave out the tax rebate (2008, I think).  Got my check for $600 on Tuesday and spent $632 on Friday night taking Ginger to Emergency After Care!!!!!!  Easy come, easy go!

yep!  love it!  Imagine all the crazy stuff we'd see if we set up monitors around the house lol.

after looking at my chart (I keep a growth chart for her) she was 16 inches 8/31, so she's grown another inch in 2 1/2 weeks... don't know what's normal, but she's def. still growing.  Only time will tell!  Her paws keep getting bigger and bigger, so we'll have to see where she ends up.

Oooh Dakota.. NOT the cat food!! Too much protein and other bad stuff for a growing DoberDiva!! You'll get sick and never get tall enough to counter surf!! Besides, you'll end up with fish breath! Stick to the knitted wool blankets

now tell me, is this the look of an innocent lil girl?? or the look of someone that knows they've just been busted!!! lol, took this about 10 seconds ago after a house that seemed WWAAAYYYYYYY too quiet for anything good to be happening lol.

 she knows the sound of our chair when we get up, so i've had to resort to "pretending" to sit down, and then creeping in only socks just 1 way that doesn't make any noise on the floor to sneak a peak.

Dear Dakota..

Yup.. You've got it down pat! Keep them on their toes ( or in their socks!) I'm very proud of you.

Soon you'll be a full fledged Diva!

Joker walks through the kitchen scoops up a little and circles back so not to wipe it out all at once. He thinks no one notices.
