Walking and Playtime

Phoenix and his Mom selected our own Ciara as the February Pupsqueek 2010 pup. Thanks, that was very sweet of you. Phoenix is getting a new sister soon too and her name is Zara.

Several of you said you liked watching our videos so we put together another one. The first part is all about Ciara's first walk in the neighborhood. Then she takes the big step and walks along with her brothers. Mom says it wasn't too bad but Phantom wasn't too crazy about her walking next to him. But it was still fun. The second part of the video is more playtime between the half-siblings. Thunder does very well with her up to a point and then he just can't control his strength OR his big mouth. Mom has done a lot of editing here so you don't have to hear the puppy squeals.

Phantom is doing pretty well with Ciara but he has assumed more of the role of the pack policepup. He totally ignores her if he is alone with her, but as soon as she and TD starts clowning around, he is right there to yell at them. We will have to try to catch that on video too. Now for the video. Enjoy.

Woos, Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Grand movie! We love seeing you two play. That group walkie looked most interesting....I guess she couldn't decide where she wanted to be. Silly girl!

She is quite the little ball of energy, isn't she? I can't believe how cute she is!


Maggie and Mitch said...

What a great video! We loved watching you weave back and forth, Ciara! That used to drive mom nuts when we were pups! haha

Love ya lots

Sonic said...

Ciara is so small and cute! Walking between her brothers is like when my Pops drives his little car between two buses... it's scary!


Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

She looks so little compared to the guys - hard to think she'll be almost their size in 6 months. We drive our Mom crazy with the walking back and forth.

What's up with the editing? I say no puppy playtime is complete until the puppy goes SQUEEEEE! Maybe that's why my nephew Oliver doesn't come over to see me anymore.

But it is important for her to be able to tell when the big dog has had enough, right?


Tanuki Maxx said...

Ciara sure moves fast! That was a beautiful first walk video! Thanks for sharing it with us! Mommy just couldnt get enough of watching it!!


Frankie Furter said...

HOW GRRRRRREAT!! Someone has to be the peacemaker. I'm just sayin'.

Gus said...

Hooray! what a wonderful way to start the day...walkies with a puppy. Now tell me how you handled all three of them AND ran the video camera. Muzzer wants to know.


Ludo van Doggy said...

You looked very interested in EVERYTHING out on your walk Ciara. Oh, to be a puppy again. You did very well keeping up with Phantom too.

Great video! Little Ciara is so cute!
I don't felt the effects of the earthquake. Some states in the southern felt small earthquakes.
So sad to hear about Chile.


KB said...

Clara is one well behaved puppy. The notion that you can already walk all three of them on leash at one time is amazing! Until very recently, our 'puppy' continually play attacked our older dog while walking on leash. It made walking very hard!

It would be fun to weigh Clara every week and tell us how much she grows. I always do that with my puppies and it's astonishing how fast they convert puppy food into dog!

Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Wooos! Ciera is absolutely adorable, even going on nice walkies, but mostly playing chase! I love that game, hmmm, maybe I do want a puppy... nah... never mind.

BRUTUS said...

Great job on the walkie, Ciara!! So brave - sniffing all those potentially scary things, even picked up a leaf!! Gotta watch that leash though, it'll get you hung up around things (hint: always walk in the same side of the tree as mom does). You are growing up fast!

Of khourse, we'll want to hear it when Ciara shows TD who's the boss of him!


Kathie @ Just a Happy Housewife said...

Ciara melts my heart every time! it's too cute seeing the 3 of them walking together!

The Musketeers said...

Wow we are so back on track ! You have a new sister ?! Ciara is so cute ;)

achieve1dream said...

Congrats on the award! The video was great. I love where she nonchalantly picked up the leaf and carried it a bit. Too cute!!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Look at those little puppy legs go!

Stella said...

Ciara is a wonderful walker for a pup her age! With her brothers? She'll get it soon enough. I love that she is such a confident little pup, so fun to watch!


Piappies World said...

Hi there Phantom, Thunder and Ciara,

It so cutie how Ciara runs a bit to keep up with her brothers during the walkie.

They surely are enjoying each others' company.

Martha and Bailey said...

Loved the video. It was lovely to hear you say Ciara as we have not been sure how it is pronounced.
She looked so lovely trying to keep up with Phantom and Thunder - having three must bring back memories of Dakota.
Phantom and Thunder look so good with Ciara. She is full of puppy energy.

I love the video!! Ciara's little short legs are just going to town as they say!!! Adorable..simply adorable! She loves her big brothers and I'm so happy they are there with her to play. Lots of love, Debbie and Hollydog

Bijou said...

Hi Ciara, You are doing great on the walkies. I think you will soon have those big brothers trained so they do whatever you want. BOL You sure have a nice big yard to run and play in. My mom keeps planting flowers in my yard!


Anya said...

LOVED the video
So SWEET :-)
A cute puppy with lots of energy !!

#1 says that Ciara already walks better on the lead than I do, and that I should follow her example!!!


Hero said...

Hello, Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara! Thanks for visiting my blog. I love your video. It's always great seeing the boundless energy of young puppies. Ciara is lucky to have two big brothers to watch out for her.

Clive said...

We loved the video - Ciara is doing so well and its lovely to see her with her big brothers!

take care
Clive and the NSLM

Kari in WeHo said...

I am sure he will get used to her :)

Amber and Nala said...

What a FUN walkie! Ciara, you fit perfectly between those two big dogs! And I LOVE your new heart blankie!


Sagira said...

Wow, she did great on her first walk. Most puppies pull backwards, but she was in front of you most of the time, way to go Ciara!

Thunder is so good with her. That is so sweet.

And so brave to walk all 3 at once, I am lucky to walk just one. :)

and Sagira says...of course you guys can come play, I love having playmates!

Dory and the Mama said...

Ciara, Mama says you are wearing her out!! So much pupergy!!!


Huffle Mawson said...

Somebabypup getting wrapped around the tree was a little bit cute!

BeadedTail said...

What a cute video! Ciara was way more confident walking with her big brothers but boy, what a handful! Thunder sure loves playing with his little sisfur!

Melissa and Emmitt said...

oh what a wonderful video!

i can see her growing before our eyes!

what a special family!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Oh that is so cute.. She sure likes walking with her brothers.. Phantom will give in pretty soon. He doesn't was Thunder and Ciara to have all the fun.. Callie always has to be out in front when we walk and she won't walk next to Louie. All is good if Gus is in the middle...

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

We have been so enjoying the videos! Thanks for sharing this newest adventure in your lives. I am starting to think that having a brother is going to be just fine.

Lorenza said...

Ciara's first walkie??
I think she did it pretty well!
And then with Phantom and Thunder!
I loved the video!
Kisses and hugs

Samantha said...

Wow! Ciara has sure grown since we've been away!!! What a gorgeous girl - just love this combo of vids - she's doing wonderfully well on leash!!! And seems to be doing just pawesome with her brofers too! Looking forward to seeing so much more of your sweet new sister, boys!
Hugs xo

Twinkietinydog said...

So, Mr Thunder has assumed the role of the mature fun police. My M doesn't let us correct each other, she's afraid we may develop bad habits and eventually hurt each other. What does she know?
Loved the video. Ciara is a joy to look at. The triple leash part was intriguing to us. It seemed to work perfectly whereas we can hardly manage the double.
Thanks for the very entertaining video.

Life With Dogs said...

Now we're talking! You get so much more "essence" from video. And it makes you want a Sibe puppy like mad.

kissa-bull said...

we just adore seeing all three walking together

happy happy! and thanks now my walkies is done for the day. zzz.


Cocorue said...

hey guys, it's a shame i can't watch the video but from the comments, it looks like little Ciara has bonded well

maybe she can teach my sista Tiffane some manners?????


Wild Dingo said...

had this post up to watch earlier but couldn't download movie in time. I love how you walk 3 dogs. i've been considering a 3rd (someday after Europe) but have always wondered about the walking part. I pretty much do what you do, one hand, let the leashes twist and they can just untwist in one hand. but i still thought it would be hard! you make it look easy even with a PUPPY!

Question: why do you knot your leashes? they look leather. (i like leather for the feel and strength.) but curious on why you knot them.

and finally: i love how you praise Ciara for potty outside. so many people get this wrong. perfect. love how thunder goes and smells it (marks it even?) at the end...

my word verification is bityrag... hmmm... a new toy for Ciara?

Mochi and Mommy said...

What a great video! :) She did great on her walk with the boys! You are so brave to walk 3 at once!


TwoSpecialWires said...

We love the videos, and watching you grow up, Ciara! We're not sure which we like better? Seeing you learn to walk on a leash and with your brothers? Or romping free and happy in your nice big backyard? We DO know you are a lucky puppy to be part of your wonderful family!
