It's my birthday! (sort of)

Georgia here. Today I am six months old. I thought I would share some of my puppy pictures with you.

Here I am at five weeks when my mom and dad came to visit me. Wasn't I cute? Yeah, I know what you're saying--all puppies are cute.

Here I am at seven weeks. This is the first time I visited my new home, and in this photo I am panting because I was a little stressed with the new surroundings and the big dopey huskador staring at me. Mom and dad borrowed me for the day so that I could meet Dakota and see where I was going to live. They didn't bring me home permanently until a couple of weeks later.

Here I am at 2 1/2 months. I wasn't too sure what to do with the ball, and I am not much better with them now. All I know is that if I steal Dakota's, she'll chase me, and that's fun.

Here I am at three months with my big fluffy "flying nun" ears. They stick out when I'm excited.

Here I am at 4 1/2 months. I am starting to look more like a dog than a puppy. But people tell me I am still cute. I am sure it's the ears.

Here I am now. I have turned into a very gangly teenager. I was weighed today, and I'm 23.5 kg (that's about 52 lbs). I'm bigger than Dakota was at my age, and I now weigh more than the bad cousins.

Mom and dad are amazed at how much my coat has been changing. A couple of months ago, this is what I looked like. Very brown with a cute black spot on my tail.
Look at me now. I am very black. In fact, I am much more black than I appear in the photo.

I had a very nice six month "birthday". I got to visit my brother, Ben, and play with the bad cousins, Storm and Wolf. Tomorrow we are off to do some sleddoggery stuff, so Dakota can tell you all about that later. She gets to pull dad on a bike. I STILL only get to watch all the fun stuff. :(

Math Lesson

Georgia here with a math lesson I learned this weekend.

What does two dogs plus two days of rain equal?

(2 dogs + 2 rain = ?)





Needless to say, Mom is looking forward to a dry spring...

The Origin - Boring for Georgia

Hi everyone. Georgia here. My turn to tell you about my weekend away at the Origin race. I didn't win a ribbon like Dakota did. I didn't even get to race because I'm too young to pull all that fun stuff. In fact, I didn't get to do much of anything!

Here I am on the drive to the race. Another long ride in the car. Two hours this time. The car bores me, so I always go to sleep.

Everything started to turn white, but I was still bored. Are we there yet?
Here I am in the white stuff. I have never seen anything like it before. I wasn't very impressed.
One fun part of the weekend was spending time with the "bad cousins". Don't they look nice against the snow? Storm didn't have a good race because she wasn't able to borrow a sled before her race started, so she was eliminated.

This was the best part of the weekend. Mom put a harness on me, and I got to go for a sleddoggery walk with Dakota down one of the race trails. Don't we look good together? Maybe next year we'll enter as a two dog team. Sometimes when we walk together, I get too excited and bite Dakota, so I'll have to get over that.

Then it was back in the car for another long boring ride and more sleep.
