Go ahead, make my day...

Duke eyeing Eddie's every move, making sure Eddie doesn't get any closer to his loot.

Furless friends?

I wonder if they make toupees for the less fortunate? We can donate about 2 lbs a day if they need it!

Trust no one...

Duke never takes his eyes off his most prized possession. Not even for water breaks.

Happy, Happy!! Joy, Joy!!

So glad I don't have to deal with the guilt of seeing this sad face anymore.

Case closed...

It doesn't take a CSI to figure out that Duke has been on the BBQ'er again.

Off limits...

When we bring the dogs into the kitchen, we always tell them to stay off the carpet. Most of the time they do pretty well. Alot of the times, they like to tease us and get as close as possible to the carpet without actually touching it. I think they team up just to push our buttons.

I learned it from watching you...

Duke was really lonely when Eddie was incarcerated. So much that he started to take up Eddie's unusual habits. Duke was starting to mimic Eddie's transporting talent, but I think Eddie has been in the game far longer than Duke. The quantity per mouthload just isn't the same, but in due time Duke will catch up and shovel just as much as Eddie.

Itty bitty spot...

Duke is always pulling blankets out from his house. He ends up scooting it into the sun and arranging it into a little pile of fabric. He has to curl his body up just to fit on the silly thing.

Can't take it anymore...

Even his tail was trying to escape.

Life without bars...

Took Eddie to the vet yesterday for his 2nd ACL check-up. There's some good news and some bad news.

The BAD news : The doctor said his knee was still a bit loose, so it looks the 2nd surgery didn't do the trick either.
The GOOD news : NO MORE CAGE!!!

Eddie is now free as a bird. Well, as free as a bird can be confined to our backyard. He walks with a bit of a limp, but hopefully he can strengthen his muscles now that he's able to walk around now. We don't want to put Eddie thru another stressful surgery and recovery, so we're just going to let his leg heal the way nature would intend it to. The doctor said that many owners choose that option with some success. Eddie will just have to be on medication for the rest of his life in order to keep his joints healthy.

Duke was so happy to have his buddy back. He greeted Eddie with a welcome back sniff.

We went out last week to do some errands. We were probably only gone for about an hour or so. But we came home to this.

How long he was out? Where else did he go in the house? Or better yet....How the heck did he pick that lock!?!?

Friday, January 20, 2006


Eddie is still shedding like crazy. Fur. Everywhere. So much that it even sticks to the side of his cage!

Thursday, January 19, 2006

Still trying...

Took Eddie out for his potty break & came back to see this...

I gotta give Duke credit for his persistence.

Winter shminter...

Eddie's hair was almost fully grown in 6 weeks after his first surgery. Then they had to shave it all off again and we had to start all over after his 2nd surgery. This time his hair seems to be growing in a little slower. I think it's cause he's been in a warm house and his fur probably still thinks it's summer.

.......6 weeks after 1st surgery.............4 weeks after 2nd surgery.....

Another victim, ripped to shreds...

Looks like this one fought for his life, but with no such luck.

Deep thoughts...

One last beach picture for the road. This picture was taken on Eddie's last day out before his 2nd surgery in December. I guess he was gathering himself & his thoughts before his 2nd run on his 8 week recovery.

Wanting & waiting...

Duke throwing hints into the kitchen again. He's always ready for the next contestant.

Me & my favorite redhead...

I just can't get over these beach pics! =) This is one of my favorites.

Crunchy texture, not so tasty...

Duke trying to get the sand out of his mouth after picking his ball up for the 10th time. (Another pic from the nice beach day last month.)

Wishing the weather was this good again...

2 of my 3 favorite boys watching the sunset last time we were at the beach.

Out on good behavior...

I like to take Eddie out of the cage once in a while just to give him a little bit of freedom. He looks so peacefull and comfy in this position.

We were in the backyard on Saturday to cut down some leaves from the birds of paradise monster. Duke didn't like it very much. Everytime a big leaf would fall, he would run away and hide behind Eddie. I guess he thought that the big green things were gunna get him if he didn't move out of the way.

When we were cleaning up and Eddie was put back into the house, Duke ran away and watched from a safe distance in his house. Some tough guy he is.

On strike...

When I bring Duke inside at night, I put his cushion right next to Eddie's cage. I think Duke was upset that he got kicked out of the cage yesterday, so he moved his bed and ignored Eddie the whole night.

Sunday, January 08, 2006

Role reversal...

We took Eddie's cage out again to give him some sunshine and fresh air today. When I took Eddie to go to the bathroom, I came back to see this.

I guess Duke wanted to be the one to sleep inside from now on.

I don't know if it's because of the summer weather we've been having this winter, but Eddie's fur is starting to shed a few months too early this year.

The predator & the prey...

Duke was eyeing my piece of chicken during the entire dinner.

Thursday, January 05, 2006

His winter fluff-ness...

A view from above...

Distraction comes in the form of a ball. No surprise there.

Tuesday, January 03, 2006

Still the same ol' cage...

Poor Eddie. Whenever he gives this look it reminds me so much of Eeyore (from Winnie the Pooh) when he loses his tail. I hope the next 6 weeks will fly by.

Monday, January 02, 2006

Technique is everything...

Duke has many ways of getting the most flavor out of the chewie.

Happy New Year!

I think Duke gave Eddie have a New Year's present. That was his first big step in sharing for 2006.
