We’ve been trying to break our dog’s habit of sleeping on the sofa at night. We started putting chairs on it to keep Joey from climbing up on the sofa. The first night, it worked, but then look what happened the last two nights. He’s too smart!

Joey got a bath the other day – it is quite the event as he hates the water.
Today we took Joey to the dog park and he met another puppy about his same age that likes to play just like him. Here are some fun pictures.
And finally taking a breather!
Today, we took Joey to the local dog park in Irvine. This is a big open, fenced in field where we can let Joey tire himself out.
Here is a picture of Joey and his new best friends.
This is why it is sooo hard to keep Joey off the couch.
Yesterday morning I came down the stairs to the sight of this!
Is he laughing at me?
It’s a small world. Joey’s littermate happens to live just a few miles from our house. Anjali and Annika went to the park to visit Kieran. Here they are resting after an hour of play time!
This week, he figured out a way to jump onto Annika’s bed but then couldn’t muster up the courage to jump off. He sat there whining for over half an hour!
Needless to say that all the bedroom doors are now closed.
On the way home, we stopped off at the Garcia’s house so Joey could meet Bogart. Bogart may look like a brute but he is a sweetheart and tolerated Joey’s playfulness.
They “dueled” each other for over an hour but by the end of it, they were buddies!
We took Joey into the canyon last weekend to get him tired. He has so much energy and can be quite naughty!
After his hike, he went straight to sleep and wouldn’t be bothered!
Joey continues to grow like a weed and is keeping us very busy. We’ve had about 8 inches of very much need rain this week so we’ve been spending a lot of time indoors. Here is Joey enjoying the fire.
By popular demand, here is a Joey update.
Joey is finally getting into a routine. He slept seven whole hours last night and only had two little accidents in the house today! He is also napping a bit more during the day, and seems a lot more relaxed.
Here are some more pics.
We are crate training Joey, but in the meantime, he has picked out a cozy spot by the sofa.
Here’s a couple in our back yard.
We got our new puppy this afternoon. He is a 9 week old Smooth Collie.
Here are the first pictures of him in our backyard.
We have tentatively named him Joey! The other leading names were Sprite, Baron, Google and Jamba!
