Life's Lessons Learned.....

......the hard way.

Hi Everybuddy -

Sometimes life isn't always easy. Our newest pack addition - our bewootiful Shyla - has been pushing the envelope a bit with our Royal One......Meeka. I have to admit that Meeka has been pretty patient, giving her much more room for error than some of us who shall remain nameless. It appears as though Shyla has used up her "Get Out Of Jail Free" cards. So it happened. The Prince put the little gutsy one in her place. Meeka has a habit if claiming all the Nylabones in a 20 mile radius as his. We all know this and just don't even bother to take one if he's looking as though he's not in the mood to share. This is Rule #1:
Shyla not only tries to take them.....she does....and then barks at him! Oooooh! Mom has warned her and Meeka has yacked at her several times and then looks at Mom as if to say "Ummmm......somebuddy better tell her to read the manual!!". He said that because of Rule #2:
Last night his royalness sprang into action and let her have it. Unfortunately she let him have it back which of course didn't go over very well. They eventually stopped (with some strong encouragement from Mom and Dad) and amazingly enough, no one was worse for the wear. Mom was VERY relieved! I heard the commotion from all the way upstairs and ran downstairs to see what was going on. Shyla was shaking but I think she got the message. Dad caught these pictures of her while I comforted her. Mom said it was an "awwwwww!" moment. See:

"Is your ear still attached?"

"How bout your paw?"

"Is that paw okay too?"

"I'm so glad she's okay!!!"

We're hoping that Miss Shyla learned her lesson and is a bit more respectful now but in the meantime Mom and Dad are watching carefully. Just another day in the pack.

What a good boyfriend you are to make sure your girl was OK. Wee have minor scuffles here evidenced by my eye incident, but I am no worse for the wear. And tell Shyla she is just a Queen-in-training and no one should mess with the redheads!

Woo woo, Queen Kelsey

I am glad everyone is fine. Sometimes Bailey has to slam somepuppies to the ground when they are too rowdy. I hide behind him... I mean I back him up in case he needs help.

The Army of Four said...

Wowzers, I'm so glad everypuppy is OK! That's so scary for EVERYpup and EVERYbiped!
You are just GREAT to make sure Shyla is OK. Amber was going to tell you - but she can't stop looking at the pictures. She really thinks you're sweet. And handsome!
Play bows,

You are sooo nice to check on Shyla and make sure she is ok! We have had some squabbles in our house too. Some not so good. I'm glad Meeka and Shyla were not hurt!


Guinness & Shiloh's Family said...

Wow, yep, Shyla had better go back to the beginning and reread that manual. Glad everyone is okay. Hopefully our next addition will be a fast study. Cuz at our school, there's a test!

The Brat Pack said...

Phew, we're glad everyone is ok. When Tucker kept beating me up it got pretty tense around here but he's over it now.


The Daily Echo said...

Kapp Pack - Echo is such a caring bug!

Magnum - Mom was afraid Shyla would go splat and not slam! HAROOOO. I'm sure Bailey apprecaites all of your assistance.

AO4 - Woo....Amber's pretty spiffy herself! I'm blushing.

Holly - I thought for a brief moment we hard Mom mentioning something about Parakeets instead of Sibes but I'm sure I was just hearing things!

G&S - Yep! Shyla has homework this week. She's reading.

Bear - Meeka's pretty tolerant so we're thinking (hoping) he'll leave it at that and move on to better things. I think he got his message across.

Those are pretty sweet pictures. I know not to mess with Kat. So I just stand a few feet away from her and bark and howl and then eventually she gets tired of it and walks away and then I sweep in and collect whatever she had. Tell Shyla to try that.
