TRAKKER’S TAIL: Another Milestone

TRAKKER had another milestone yesterday.  He lost his very first tooth.

The problem is he’s really terrible at posing for photographs.  It’s just TOO MUCH FUN to play with his “people” and those shiny black “chew toys” they hold in their hands.  Too much temptation for puppies who like to play!  (And by the way, he is a little perturbed that they took the tooth away from him, too…)

So here are the only two halfway decent photos we did manage to capture to memorialize his special moment.  “Sitting” is almost too much to expect a little guy to do. Scampering around, climbing on his people, kisses and playing “chase” are MUCH MORE FUN than “Sitting” and “Staying”.  What’s a puppy to do??

TRAKKER’S TAIL: First Day at Work

Tracker is On the Job!

Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed this morning, and on the job already!

Tracker came home for the first time on Saturday (September 24), a month earlier than we had originally thought. We are thrilled!

He seems to be adjusting well, even though Sunday was a long day, filled with lots of riding in the car.

We felt really great coming into “work” this morning.  Got to meet lots of new people:  mostly “colleagues” at Windermere.

Also had to spend lots of time snuggling, chewing on ear lobes, gnawing on fingers, as well as lots of  sniffing and snuffling…

By noon, we were exhausted!  Who knew work could be so hard???

Puppy Love

There is nothing that warms a frozen heart
Like a puppy’s cuddles and kisses;
Though all is dark, there will be smiles
When welcomed by one that so misses.

How could there be tears as he plays with your toes
And looks up at you with sad loving eyes;
Or stress as he shadows your every move
And trips on his ears chasing butterflies?

BABY PHOTOS: Our New Puppy “Tracker” at 4 Weeks

We interrupt this typical ho-hum Monday afternoon for this breaking news:  We have new photographs of “Tracker”!

Normally, we would beg your indulgence for posting personal photographs on our Real Estate blog…but REALLY!  Have you ever SEEN a puppy so obviously intelligent and charming???

Here he is, at 4 weeks of age.

Undoubtedly, he is the cutest thing out there, and we thought we would give you a chance to agree…

The lower photos include him posing with his litter mate.  “Tracker” is the adorable little guy on the right.

Incidentally, we haven’t yet finalized the spelling of his name.  We may end up spelling it “TRAKKER” after all is said and done.  Stay tuned for more information the moment it becomes available…

Dog Fancy Magazine: Coeur d’Alene Idaho is Dog Heaven!

DogTown USA 2011 Has Plenty to Bark About.

DOGTOWN USA

Coeur d’Alene has been called a slice of heaven; as we know, all dogs go to heaven.

By Susan Chaney
dogtown usa

No single person, organization, or law can make a city dog friendly. It takes ongoing effort and dedication from many people.

That’s exactly how Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, became the winner of DOG FANCY‘s 2011 DogTown USA contest.

Although lots of dogs have lived in the town of 47,000 for as long as anyone can remember, it was just last year that the first dog park opened. In 2008, the city and the Kootenai Humane Society partnered to give homeless dogs a better adoption chance. Two years ago, the Dog About Town website launched, hosting a doggie events page, and a year later its publication began for dog lovers in Coeur d’Alene and surrounding areas of the Inland Northwest. Dog d’Alene an annual downtown dog celebration, kicked off four years ago. The city of 17,000 dogs has made great strides in a few short years.

To read more about this wonderful DogTown, pick up the October issue of DOG FANCY.
