Another pupdate – cute pictures, and some silly facts about my boy.
What I wore + a pupdate – a puppy afraid of the beach.

A girl and her pup – a post full of pictures of Klaus and I. It’s one of my favorites!
While looking through the posts about Klaus, I found this one with a list of “Klaus facts” which are hilarious to me. To this day he still rolls over to show his belly to anyone who approaches his crate. Sometimes he won’t get up until you give him some belly scratches. He’s still not much of a barker, although in the last few weeks he’s started barking at some strangers on the sidewalk oops but still he’s so quiet in the apartment. He loves being close and will always do his best to squirm his way in between Jeff and I. He LOVES tennis balls more than ever. One of his favorite things to do is bring all of his tennis balls into my bed one by one.
Something that is new to Klaus since that post is that he’s finally starting to get along with the cats. Wait, let me reword that – the cats are finally starting to get along with him. Kind of crazy to me that it’s taken a year but better late than never, right?! Klaus so desperately wants to be friends with them. On more than one occasion I’ve caught Klaus trying to give Professor a ball or bone. The cats have actually gotten to the point where they’ll lay in bed while he’s in there too. Professor is even sometimes tolerant enough to let Klaus groom him. I have to fight the tears when I see that big goofy puppy licking that tiny kitty’s ears.
He’s also taken quite a liking to mud puddles. I still haven’t convinced him that the beach is fun. I’m thinking that will take the help of another dog who actually likes waves. But while he was at my parents my mom sent me this photo. Apparently he likes to play for a while then take a break, and cool off in the mud.
Glad you’re mine, Klaus! Here’s to many more years of petting your belly, and playing the cheese game.
