Making Friends



Lightning again today - I promise I will let the others have a turn soon.

When I first arrived at my forever home, I was not too sure about all the little bipeds that come to visit many days of the week. I would run and hide. But Mom has been helping me and them to become good pals. I wear a calming collar, a D.A.P. one, that the vet suggested to Mom. I am no longer afraid of Dad's big black noisy shoes. And I have discovered that the little ones aren't so bad either.





This one is my favorite. Her name is C.




She loves to sit with me on my bed. It is MY bed today, but it was Thunder's yesterday:)





Oops, Mom gave her sun stripes. She is pretty cute, isn't she?






She is helping me learn how to pose nicely.





Here she thinks I am being silly, but I was just practicing my stretches.





Whoa, what have we here? Mom says this is my cutie girl's other half J - the twins J and C. I am pretending I am sleeping here because J is wild sometimes and scares me. Mom is working on him to approach me more slowly and quietly. And you know what, he is a lot of fun too because he loves to throw the ball for me and squeak my toys.






Hope you all can find a sweet little one to share your day with too.


Woos, Lightning

Firstly,,,I'm so glad that Lightning isn't afraid of those shoes anymore. I was afraid he might attack your closet one day!
2nd - Of course he's wary of the smaller ones. They move so fast but they're lots of fun to play with.

Lightening, you are doing so good with the Bipeds!! I understand how you feel though. I'm not always a fan of people of any size approaching me. I'm working on it though!!

Little peoples can be scarey...mom has to be careful when we go on walks cause I don't like strangers coming up to me, let alone noisy, squeaking, little strangers. But I do have my little peeps I know that I love!!

hero said...

She is adorable but so are you :)

Licks, hero

FURKIDSMOM said...

We're kind of scared of the little sticky beans too. You look like you're really comfy with C.

Those are some BEAUTIFUL pictures!! I hope you feel better about the little humans -- I met a few once and they were very nice!

Woofs & hugs,

Corbin said...

Little ones sure can be scary... I'm still afraid of them every now and then. Glad you're coming around to that cutie girl! I'm thinking I need to find one who will pet me all the time...

WOW!! We're away for a few weeks and some much happens! Welcome to Lighting - what a beautiful addition to the house!

The photos with J and C are just beautiful too and Lighting looks like she is settling in really well.

What great excitment having a new pup in the house!

best wishes
Clive and Murray

Mack said...

What beautiful little bipeds. The only little one around our place is Lilly and she isn't too sweet!

You are just growing so fast.


Your pal,
Mack

Ms. ~K said...

Oh My Goodness!!!
I have spent the past 30 mintues getting caught up on you all...
The last time I checked your blog, the project was still in progress, WHAT A SURPRISE!!!
She is beautiful and obviously a delightful addition to the family!
So happy for you all!

"Little" bipeds can seem awfully BIG to a little dog - not that you are such a tiny thing - but even so - they are still bigger. I am sure you will be best buddies in no time at all

Tucker The Crestie said...

All three of you are super cute!

Tessa the Maltese said...

Ohhh Lightning I thinks you is doing a great job of gettin used to everypeep specially the little ones. To me they ALL look huge! BOL

You is doin a pawsome job!

woos, Tessa

Sue said...

It sounds like you're adjusting very well. We'd like some little people to play with. Sky especially would like one to throw his ball. Mom only does it a few times, then she quits.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Lightning, we are so proud of you for giving the little humans a chance. They are really very loving and will prove to be excellent playmates once you get to know them better.

Soggibottom said...

Looks like you have a double share of hugs there. Beautiful hugs too :-) x x x

Stella said...

Hi L.B.! I am glad you got used to the bi-peds and are having a nice time with them!

I love all little kids I have met with. Our neighbor has a day care and we walk by now and then. They surround me and pet me and I love it all. I see lots of them at the library too.

Kisses,
Stella

STELLA from Down Under said...

Hi Lightning, you are doing so well. My mum cares for four little bi-peds three days a week, so I have had lots to do with them. I love them, especially the ones that wear nappies. They smell soooo good. hehehe. P.S. I think you are very handsome (blush). No worries, and love, Stella

sprinkles said...

C is so pretty!

I've heard about those calming collars and wondered just how well they worked. Plus, how DO they work? Shiver gets anxious in new situations and around dogs he doesn't know. I wonder if something like this might help him.

scotsmad said...

You are lucky Lightning to have little bipeds to cuddle. AND sometimes they have stuff on their faces that you can lick off.

XXXOOO Daisy, kendra & Bella

Frankie Furter said...

Lightning I think BOTH C. & J. are super cute two leggers!!
I am sooooo glad that you are not afraid of the scary shoes any longer. You have done some MAJOR learning in a very SHORT time. I'm thinkin you must be very very smart.

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Lightning, your bipeds are adorable!! I have lost all of mine for now because of school but it was so much fun to have them here. The three of you look so happy!!!! Precious for sure!!! Lots of love, Holly & Mom

Huffle Mawson said...

When you are a tiny bit older, Lightning, you will really appreciate them! They'll play with you until the cows come home!

Amber DaWeenie said...

We nose jus' how it is, Lightning. We has a set of 4-year-old twins visiting us all da time too. Da boy is more active den da girl!

Sagira said...

Glad to hear that you're making friends with them. You will learn that they are not that bad, they will even sneak you food once in awhile. :)

Beans4Biscuits said...

Man-oh-man Lightning, our brother Hannibal says he is moving to your house. He LOVES those mini-bipeds. I am not sure what they are so I usually hide out.

We like your stretching moves and think you are a future exercise and stretch model!

Linda said...

KB said...

I see an incredible friendship blossoming between you and C, Mr. Lightning! She is very very cute with a smile that makes me smile right back at my screen. I'm so glad that you have a friend like her.

What is a DAP collar? My dogs are still slightly afraid of wild little boys... maybe one would help?

Awwwww, how cute you all look, they are very gentle with you by the looks of things, we don't see many little peeps so usually growl at them especially if they're screaming :-) See you at the events this week guys! Dex and Lou xxx

C is very pretty and she looks like a good friend. We thinks we would like her because she can sit still and be quiet. ~The Cats

J looks like he would be lots of fun, I bet he would play chase with me. ~Fenris

Oh my goodness! I had to rush over as soon as I saw the new extra name on your comment! Welcome, Lightning!! What a fantastic name you have! And what a handsome pup you are! I'm going to so enjoy getting to know you and watching you grow!

And hello also to Phantom, Thunder & Ciara! Sorry I haven't been able to visit while my humans were travelling but hope to catch up now! :-) Hope Phantom is feeling OK and still eating well?

Beautiful. My JuneyBug is moving away; too sad to even write to anyone these days ... looks like it was love at first sight with your little ones and Lightning.
