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
