Pebbles and Sophie, playing their favorite game. The “nibbles game.”

IMG_0275Because they are entertaining.  We need more entertaining.

Ironically, I ran across this site some time ago and still check it out from time to time – their pit-bull mix is named pebbles as well.

IMG_1203SO, she wanted to name pebbles “taquila” for her fawn color.  I said no, imagining myself having to run after the dog in public if she got away, screaming “Taquila! Taquila! come back!!”  So, her name is pebbles.

…and pebbles’ favorite past-time.

Pebbles is, ahem, highly trained.  More or less.  We did lots of training classes with her, clicker training, positive reinforcement, etc.  She’s “canine good citizen” certified.  Though FIL likes to point that out when pebbles does not do what may be asked of her…. .

At least pebbles’ official title is “pebbles akc cgc.”  She, has a title.*  Does sophie have a title?  Hmm?

IMG_0783We weren’t dog people before.  Pebbles and her mother were essentially rescues.  That story for another day.

Pebbles, on watch. Watch fer the gators pebbles.

*In CGC, dogs who pass the 10 step CGC test can earn a certificate and/or the official AKC CGC title. Dogs with the CGC title have the suffix, “CGC” after their names.

Some cuteness factor, after the break… .  Pebbles with some of her litter mates….

Pebbles, trying to escape her pen… .
Just a few weeks. The litter was handsome.
Why not have just one basket of puppies?
Chow-time
Some puppies, clamoring for food.
Sophie, post-delivery.
