A first

Last night was certainly a first for Eclipse!

Last night was the first time he spent on tie-down. He did pretty good. It took him right around 5 minutes to settle down to begin with because he couldn't see us and just wanted to be with us, but after that he was good. He drank a Ton of water yesterday so at 2:30 he woke me up and had sprinkled a little bit but we ran downstairs and pottied and then he settled down quickly and fell fast asleep.
This morning he woke up just before 7:30. Here he is the morning. His ear perked correctly yet again, and yet again I missed the picture. This time because he turned his head though. Brat.
He relieved then ate breakfast but then had to go on tie-down again so I could get ready for the day. He was quite wound up as you can see.
He went into his crate for me to shower but then it was time for service (what we do on Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to noon). Today, since my mom was staying home, he stayed on tie-down in the den. He did very well. This picture is from after I got home. He was quite content.
And then.... we waited for Coreena to come with the puprise...
and waited....
and waited....
J/K. Coreena brought the puprise just a couple minutes after 1 o'clock.
Look familiar, albeit slightly larger? They should, this is Elly and Evett. Elly is darker and (seems) bigger. Evett is smaller and has a dark 'mask' on her face. They're both darling. Why are they at my house when they are with Joy who is two hours north of here? Well, we decided Joy deserved a break so offered to take them for the week to work on commands, leash training, etc. Mainly just to give Joy a break. Today was a lot of fun, we had four of the six "E"s here, we even took them all on a walk together. Er, fun! Tabatha was nice enough to bring them back to Roseburg with her when she met with Joy to have him puppy-sat for the next two weeks. Thanks again, Tab!
^This is Evett^
^You can see her 'mask' a bit better in this one^
^This is the sweet Elly. They're both sweet but Elly was dubbed Elly instead of Evett for her outstanding display of sweetness *wink*
^Elly again. Extremely cute!^
We let Eclipse play with the girls for about 10/15 minutes while Eva was napping in the crate (she'd been with them for around an hour at Coreena's). The following three pictures are from that time.
^Eclipse and Evett playing tug with the stuffed bone. Again, the mask. Elly's eyes in the back^
^Eclipse in left corner (yes, that's a cat toy. They all love it and it's perfectly safe). Evett and Elly on tie-down on the right.
^Same orer as above^
After that I took Eclipse on a short walk just because I needed the air. When we came back his ear was perked right and we even got a picture!! Darling!
They all laid down after awhile.
^Elly on tie-down at my feet
^Eva loose, Elly's foot on bottom right
^Evett on tie-down on the china hutch/tv stand

^Eclipse snoozing in the too-small crate. That thing really needs retired.

Currently, Coreena and Max are gone with Eva, Evett and their Dachschund Rizzo. Eclipse is napping in his crate upstairs, Elly is on tie-down sleeping in the dog bed, Teddy and Kira are in the laundry room and I'm exhausted, both emotionally and physically.
