Wednesday Words with the Woos


We have been posting a lot about Misty and Timber together.  They have a great relationship and spend a LOT of time playing.  There is only a 10 1/2 month difference in their ages.  Misty still has a lot of puppy in her, and she so enjoys her time with Timber.  Some of you seem concerned that Lightning might be getting left out.  No worries, he does very well with Timber too.  But he is 6 1/2 now and not as into puppy antics 24/7:)  Even with just Misty, he limited his time for lots of playing.  He is much more content to sit together with his furamily and watch all the action.  This is part of why we decided to add Timber to our family so that Misty could have a more active playmate.  Lightning gets time alone, time with just Misty, and time with just Timber, and of course, time with all three altogether. Our silly boy Lightning has matured a lot, especially since we lost Ciara, and we do believe he still misses her a lot.  But he is a happy pup and loves his life.  Just keep those bikes away from him.


Here he is very content to lie next to Timber while Timber "quietly" gnaws on a ball.  And Timber does like to be in close proximity to his BIG brother during those times.  We walk in shifts here now that there are three.  And we mix up the pairing all the time.  Lightning and Misty, Timber and Misty, Lightning and Timber.  Whoever isn't in the pair gets to go solo with Mom, a great time for working on good walking techniques.




It is a very common thing to spot the two boys together on the coolaroo cot, just being together.



Hey, Timber here, Lightning is teaching me how to do the dangle. But he says I might need to grow my legs a bit more:)  I wonder if one day I will be as big as he is.



So to sum it up, we are a happy pack.  Just like humans, we all have our unique ways of bonding with each other.  Lightning doesn't want anyone to be worried about him at all:)

Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber

Oh we weren't worried here - Mom and I knew with all the experience you guys have with the Sibe Troop, everything was as it should be. No doubt Lightning is loving having the little 'bro but enjoys just watching the play with the youngsters too. You have a "little bit of everything" in WOO-VILLE now with your dynamic threesome! We love hearing about them and seeing them.

Hugs, Teddy and Mom too

Oh My I know Lightning is enjoying his down time. Miss Misty was a 2 1/2 Pawsful. Older Woo has so much maturity and calmness that he shares with the two rag a muffins.
all the photos are beautiful
Hugs madi and mom your bfff

We totally understood that Lightning would enjoy more alone time because we would too if a puppy came into our house. We're glad everyone has fun together from time to time though!

Marg said...

I bet Lightning does still miss Ciara. He probably is enjoying having a little down time to himself. Sounds very busy at your house but a fun time. Have a great day.

We weren't worried at all, we know that each pup bonds different with their sis's and brothers, mags was a little pup when gussie came so i think that is why they are really close, plus maggie has a bit of the high school mean girl in her soul...lol.....they are all so beautiful. Also thank you for saying those nice words about moms wreath. That really made her day. stella rose

Don't worry, Timber, you'll be big and strong like your brother in no time! Plenty of legs for the dangle!

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

First of all, we're in shock. Lightning's 6 1/2??!! How did that happen. We thought he might be enjoying some uninterrupted alone time, and wasn't bothered by the two 'wild ones'. But 6 1/2? Sheesh!

Molly the AireGirl said...

I understand the not wanting to play all the time, Lightning. You boys are so handsome together and the three of you are the perfect team!

Foley Monster, Pocket and River Song said...

You are doing a great job to have everyone in the pack get along. You have a happy, well-balanced pack Congratulations. I think Lightning is content being the big brother and watching over his siblings.

Brian said...

Y'all are such a wonderful pack and we love you all!

KB Bear said...

What a sweet post. I love the many different pairings for walking. And you are getting more walking :)

I love seeing Lightning teaching Timber the dangle. They look like such a sweet pair of boys.

We get it - sometimes Finley needs a break from us two puppies.

Mama and da DB Boyz said...

Jakey seems to be following Lightnings lead...While Arty and Rosy have a great time doing zoomies around the back yard, Jakey is content to watch on from the back porch.

Hi Timber, sorry that we have been so inactive on blog world for the past few months but we are so happy to meet you here. You're such an adorable puppy and we can see the cuteness overloaded from you.
Love the pictures of all of you!

Mark Muller said...

it is great to see the 3 huske-teers... and I always enjoyed the way nordic pups take care for their pack... maybe it is a lot of team-spirit from iditarod in all nordic dogs :o)

Millie and Walter said...

It sure looks like you three are enjoying having each other around. We too are stunned to see that Lightning is over 6 already. My how time flies.

Sue said...

I'm sure that Lightning enjoys the private time now that Misty is busy with Timber. Watching the pack dynamics is fascinating.

FiveSibesMom said...

Lightning is 6 and a half??? I can remember when you were going to get him as a puppy...wow...time sure flies!!! I just love the new pup...oh, your house is so full of fun and love! I miss the puppy stage...wait, did I just say that out loud?! ;-)

Caren Gittleman said...

I wasn't worried one bit!!!! I can tell you are an amazing doggy mama and who understands your dogs better than you do? NO ONE!!!! I think your pack is gorgeous and marvelous!! DakotasDen

Murphy said...

Kinda sounds like our house we all enjoy each other but those kittens have lots more energy then the rest of us. Sometimes us more mature ones like to just watch them. And hey alone time with the Mom is always nice.

Wyatt Airedale said...

That is a good looking family! We understand about "rotating" time spent with the young ones. It takes the entire village to deal with a young dog😂.
