All About Coda

It's amazing how your life changes when you get a dog. Every story we tell centers around this little cutie. That's why we decided to start this little blog to share our stories and pictures with our friends and family ... (plus we wanted to see what all this blog stuff was about)

Coda's Bad Day

Yesterday we took Coda to a house that Mike was house sitting. There are 2 dogs that live there plus Sherlock was there. Coda knows Sherlock, but the other 2 dogs were a bit intimidating for her. Kate an 11 year old Doberman was very sweet. She gave Coda a sniff and then left her alone. Sherlock was excited as always to see her and Apollo ... a small mutt ... wanted a piece of our little baby.

We took all of the puppies to the back yard to run around and it was then that everything got bad. Apollo and Sherlock started to chase Coda and she got scared. She ran away and Apollo caught her and started to get very very rough. He turned her over and was barking and growling at her. Coda started to cry ... that loud screamy type cry. I tried to get Apollo off of her, but he was being very nasty. It was very very scary for us and for her.

I finally got her free and for the rest of the day she wouldn't leave Bri or I alone. She sat on our laps for the rest of the day. Now our shy little baby is even more timid :(

Coda & the Bed

[07-01-05] - Coda in her Daddy's spot
Coda has taken to trying to steal our spots on the bed. She sees us coming and she quickly buries herself under our pillows in a hope that we will let her stay there. I'm not sure why she prefers it up in our spots, maybe it smells more like us up there ... maybe it's just more comfortable.

The other morning Bri wanted to sleep late and I couldn't get Coda to stop walking all over me (literally). I sat up to pet her and she snuck behind me and laid down in my spot ... I decided this was the only way to get her to go back to sleep so Bri wouldn't get mad at us for waking him up ... so I got my book and rested my head on Bri's legs and let her keep my spot ... that's right my dog won ... she got to sleep at the top of the bed and I was pushed to the foot of the bed ... don't tell me she's not one smart cookie :)

Puppy Picnic Coming Up

We've been invited to a puppy picnic at our breeders (Triumph Shelties) for the end of this month. We're so excited! I hope that Coda has fun ... she's very shy around other dogs and when there's too much noise ... and I expect both will cause a little shock to her when we arrive.

I'll make sure to take lots of pictures to share with you all :)

I also have a bunch of pictures I want to post here ... I just haven't had time recently ... I'll try and do it soon!
