We hadn't realized how quiet and ladylike 18 month old Kanga
had become until 11 month old Tink arrived at our house.

Tink is still easily startled by noises, and we have many
at our house that she's still getting used to.

The funniest thing is Kanga's reaction.

Let's take the garbage truck, for example. Kanga used to tremble
when she heard the truck. When she was little, she would sound
a huge alarm, letting us know that the big bad truck was outside

Well, now Tink is kicking up a fuss. We live near a hotel, and the
garbage truck comes every morning to pick up the trash. So every
morning so far Tink has woken us all up with a giant bark (we sleep
right through the garbage truck).

Now that Tink is the one raising a ruckus, Kanga seems to have
decided that she must be the big brave girl.

When the truck starts loading up the dumpster, banging lids and
grinding gears, Tink barks her little head off. While Molly or I
work with Tink to calm her down, Kanga looks at us with an expression
that says something like:

"Can you believe what a fuss she's making? How immature."

It's so funny. If she could roll her eyes, she would.

Tink tolerates the noise more each day. Soon she'll sleep right
through it, just like Kanga does, I'm sure.

It's just so cute to see our "little puppy" Kanga acting like
a big sister.

Your two beautiful babies, remind me of the dogs I have seen at the dog auction in Holmes County, Ohio. I am currently involved in a grassroot state wide ballot initiative to ban dog auctions throughout Ohio. Learn more at http;//www.BanOhioDogAuctions.com and join the facebook page Ohio Voters Against Puppy Mills and Dog Auctions. Ohio is the 7th largest puppy mill state and Holmes County has over 400 mills! I live only 30 miles away, which I consider my backyard, and my yard needs a good cleaning!

Yes, and then there's Ms. Abigail. She's 13 and just about as hyper as she was when she was 3. But now when she barks (once) at someone outside walking by, she stops & looks at me to see if it is okay with me that she continue.... I do not allow her to bark inside but outside on a leash - she lets go and gets it out of her system. I am working with Chet Womach's approach to keep Abby calm. I hope it works!

What a beautiful picture of your two darlings. They are quite a pair. I know you will get many years of joy and fun with them around. What great companions our dogs are to us. What would we do without them. God Bless you all and have all the fun in the world with these adorable dogs.

Tink and Kanga are sooo cute! You'll have a wonderful time with the two of them. We just love our two. We adopted Nellie a year ago to give Taz a companion after losing his sister to cancer. She and Taz get along great! Nellie loves to mother Taz just like his sister used to do.

Her is a foto of Diog (D.O.G.i, my 21 lb. poodle who unstuffs toys & anialates the inside sweakers. He is only about 1 yr old & is smart, does a bunch of tricks: Dead dog, count to 5, rollover, walk backwards, jump the hoop, shake hands, kiss, ssit, lie down, don't touch food untill I say O.K.,etc. As soon as I learn how to patch a video I'll send it. He is sooooo sweet, but, occasionally, incorrigible, like any young kid! Trying to add foto but not sure if it will take. Tried a few times but would not download???

So cute. They teach us things all the time. Thanks to the lady who sent me the info on the unstuffed toys. I found them about 2 weeks ago & It seems to do the trick. But, every time I buy Diogi a new bed, he goes nuts & pulls out all the stuffing & there goes another $25 or more dollars. He has one bed that he doesn't do that to, so I'm going to open it & see what it's stuffed with. Wish me luck!

Beautiful picture. I know everything about barkers, lol....my baby is 4 years old and he just dicovered "bark power" exists a couple of months ago. He never, ever barked before, I came to thing he had some sort of problem with his vocal chords....but it seems he never knew he could "talk". He doesn't bark at other dogs, cats, etc, but he love to bark at me or my family members just to demand us to do whatever he wants us to do. He barks at me when he wants food, or when he wants a taste of what I'm eating, he barks when he wants attention from us, when he wants to go out....................OMG! yes, I know about barking....Bless you all guys, and bless them barkers :)))

My TOBY (OES) is an angel. If I am not home he does not bark at all (no reason). We live in a condo and TOBY understands rules and regulations. If the doorbell rings, he looks at me to ask if he should send a bark. If someone knocks on the door he looks at me as well. He knows that he should not bark. Only when he is on the balcony and the Mailman comes in, TOBY only sends one bark and comes in to let me know that his favorite person is comming. Then we go downstairs to say hello and the mailman visits with TOBY.
