Taxi is definitely not mellow yellow...

Haha, well sometimes. It's probably my fault though, my parents and little brother came to visit for a bit today and I think all the new people just made him go a little crazy. Next time they will have to take turns meeting him in my room until he's allowed to come out and actually say hi to everyone all at once. Also, he's a little obsessed with the toys but that might be due to Egypt taking them all. It's weird, I have never really seen her be possessive over her toys but this is also the first real dog to come into her 'territory'. She and Darrell are gone for the night though so when I drop him off I'll have to ask what we can do to fix it. Or do some dogs just not like others? I think maybe he just plays to rough for her. She doesn't like getting jumped on too much. Hopefully she likes the puppy... Anyways, after everybody left (Darrell went with my parents for the night to hang out with Dad and brother) Taxi settled down very nicely.. and then he saw a cat outside. lol. It took a while to get him away from the windows and the patio door but he settled after a minute or two. He's been a normal crazy dog for the most part though. I just hope with the dog we board more often that Egypt gets along with it. I could tell Darrell was getting a little stressed out with Taxi's energy... He's just used to mellow Egypt, he didn't grow up with inside dogs and isn't used to their normal puppy craziness. Well.. we'll just have to see what happens.

Here are a few pictures from today. This is my first time using Alt-Tags so you screen readers better let me know if its working! That means you Ro's Alex!

This is Taxi laying on the floor with a Nylabone Ring. He has the top of the Ring in his mouth so his lower jaw is sticking through the center.
Is there something in my teeth?

This is a picture of Taxi in the living room trying to pick up a red kong. His coat is really shiny in the flash.
Get that Kong!

In this picture Taxi was walking away as I snapped the shot. I said his name right before I took it. The camera focused on his butt which is much closer than his face so it looks really big in comparison.
Does my butt look big?

This is an accident close-up picture of Taxi's mouth which is wide open holding the red kong. All you can see is his the roof of his mouth, teeth, kong and lips
Can you throw this please?

This picture is of Taxi resting his head in my lap along with the computer. He came over as I was typing this blog so I had to add it.
Lets finish this thing so you can play with me.

I wouldn't worry too much about the non-compatibility. Some dogs, like people, are just not meant to be around each other. It could also be the fact that Taxi has been kenneled and now is in a home with another dog to play with! *wink* He is such a handsome boy and your alt tags did work! :-D

Ally, Teddy and Kira said...

I agree with Coreena. Teddy and Kira both detest puppies. They never accept them until they're at least 14 weeks old and Teddy has always had puppies-in-training around (we got Teddy after first starting to attend GDB meetings). The older dogs train the puppies on doggy-etiquette by ignoring and correcting them, it's all part of growing up. It will be different for Egypt when a pup is around more often too, many times it takes at least a couple days for the dogs to work everything out ;-)

Alex here. I was able to read your descriptions. Ro likes posts where she can lock my VO keys. It worked perfectly. She locked me. She listened to my descriptions and could picture the images. Very good coding. I Thank you. You make my job easier because ro doesn't get frustrated hearing me just say image image image and she stays gentle on my keys. I don't like it when she gets frustrated because she is not gentle on my keys. I am a computer, yes, but that banging hurts me.

To make alt tags I used this website


It says to find the place where it says alt=".." but I couldn't find that so I just added to whole thing to the end of my HTML

Hope it helps and If you get confused email me and I'll tell you about it in more detail :)
