Finally covered our backyard with walk on bark from Lane Forest Products. Boy were these guys enjoying themselves this afternoon!

A busy last few weeks between school and projects have competed with time with my camera (two months exactly until graduation). Allergies in full force have not stopped me from enjoying the sun, flowers, and extra time outside with the dogs (not to mention today’s family fun bathing four dirt covered dogs!). Pictures today from our backyard’s Spring evidence.
I was sitting at my desk, suddenly realizing how quiet it was. I turned around to find this.
Our youngest dog is almost 10 months old now. He LOVE toys, our other dogs do too but this guy is ready to play with any toy any time of day; he plays so much that soon he’s playing with bits of toys that have broken. Lau wants to play so badly that he’s patiently learned how to play with our cat Sensei who LOVES him!
And he’s now learning to use his long legs to jump.
We’ve been amazed that he now outlasts his brother Ming, who had previously been the king of play. He also loves sticks, socks, kiddie pools, and when we took him to a shallow canal to swim instead he jumps like a rabbit.
Ming has a serious love of his soccer ball and does NOT share it with the other dogs…until he got himself a little brother. He’s very good at ignoring Lau for the most part. But the amazing thing is that he will share his soccer ball with him no matter what. Now that’s love.
Yes a house of 3 dogs is a full house. Jeremy has felt “a 4th dog is not really different from 3, and I definitely don’t want 5.” We’ve had this conversation on and off for….2 or 3 years. Last night I found a mix breed hound I really liked, only to find out it had been adopted this morning. And of course then since I was already thinking about it….I called another place…
I guess you know we had to check it out. Lau is an 8 week old Black Lab/Australian Shepherd mix. He’s probably under 10lbs still. Funny enough the dog (Ming) we thought could potentially have an issue is totally cool with him, it’s our Pitbull/Great Dane (Zen, who is generally really mellow) who seems to be weary. We are wondering if he thinks Lau is a cat?
