Guess who is dressed up as an Evil Wizard?!  Well, not evil really, just pissed that I made him wear this!

Auntie Becky and Uncle Bryan were nice enough to look after little Timmy while mum and dad enjoyed an overly indulgent holiday in NYC.

While Timmy was a little restless the first couple of nights, he really loves being in Waterloo with the humans, and Sousa.

Here are a couple pics Bry snapped at  Bechetel dog park in Waterloo on Sunday.

Let the bum smelling begin!

Aerodynamic Pup!

Gorgeous Timmy

Who Eats Balls from China?

…Apparently, my dog.

Against my better judgement, I let Timmy take his new ball into his crate with him when we went to bed last night.  I figured it would help him be quiet in his bed, and keep him a bit entertained.  He had never ingested anything or gotten sick from chewing stuff before.  Until last night. 

I woke up around 1:30 to the sounds of retching.  Upon inspection I saw he had barfed in his crate.  I put the stuff in the wash and everything was fine.  But he puked again, and again.  In all, 13 times the poor guy got sick.  The culprit?  He had eaten his new ball into pieces, in the process swallowing some as well.  Luckily it seems that most of the pieces were recovered.

Finally, around 3 am, he was feeling better…enough to beg to be let onto the bed, tail wagging.  We let him sleep with us, and miraculously, he slept the whole night through…well, what was left of it anyway.

Lesson learned?  No chew toys when left unsupervised!!!

I met a great couple in the park a couple weeks ago, and they were kind enough to send me a few snaps they took of Tim playing with their Doberman, Roxy.  In these pictures you can really see the size difference between the Doberman Pincher and a Toy Manchester.

Thanks so much Mike and Valerie!

Well, we attempted to brush Tim’s teeth for the first time.  Emphasis should be placed on “attempted”….

I'm outta here!

You can try to run….

Don't even think about putting that in my mouth!

You can try to avoid….

Ohhh :(

But we will get you in the end!

Okay, so I really need to start taking a “good” camera to the park!

In the meantime, here is a cute picture of Timmy (attempting) to fight a Great Dane.  Tim’s not scared of anything!
