Just so sweet and innocent – yeah, right!

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and sweet and innocent lovers….

I took this picture before I went back to my office.  I was leaving Daisy Lynn alone in other areas of the house to build up some trust!  She has been doing so good!


Moments later I heard odd clicking (which turned out to be nails on wood) sounds…

Daisy Lynn had jumped on a dining room chair and was standing in the middle of the table.

My heart was in my mouth.  I was so scared she would jump.

I caught her mid air.

The table is now off limits with boundaries in place.

More trusting later, much later…Love, Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB) rolling their eyes…

    Boy is that a typical basset “innocent” look. So much to learn when they’re little. I’m glad you caught her.

    So, have you removed all the chairs from the table?

    She was just making sure that you hadn’t left anything up there for her.

    How scary though. I think you have a climber.

    Most of the chairs are on the couches but the one remaining one is now removed. Training her to stay off the furniture is proving to be extremely hard. I guess she just wants to be up high. Crazy hound puppy!

    Mayor Daisy has definitely mastered “the look”.

    I think our Mayor feels that anything she can reach, see or touch cannot be off limits or out of bounds.

    Glad you caught her. She is definitely a climber. It’s her nose getting her in trouble! She is so much a puppy!! Just curious about everything! Ollie turns 7 on the 7th. Very laid back now But full of energy. His thing is robins or squirrels. I don’t know how he knows if a bird is a robin or not. Funny!

    Oh boy! The joys of a puppy. I get worn out just reading about you trying to keep up with her!!

    Judy – I just caught her drinking my coffee which was on top of a file cabinet. Howl many times have I not caught her? Oh dear me….

    From that statement, we have determined that Mayor Daisy is a woman of mystery.

    Oh, no!!!!!! Nosey has not been a climber, but, several of my Cocker Spaniels were! Perhaps Daisy Lynn will grow out of it.

    Nosey will finish any tea that I leave on an end table, nightstand, coffee table, etc. But, she leaves coffee alone! Doggies, doggies, doggies!!!! xoxo
