Porch Sessions

I've been a member of this family for almost 5 months now, so im slowly gaining more freedom. At first i wasnt allowed to walk the house without a leash (cuz i used to piddly diddly wherever i please...especially the carpet). But now, 5 months later, my people have gotten used to me and i have gotten used to the rules around the house. Sure, i'd sneak a lil mess-around from time to time, but overall, im an angel.

so with that being said...i have the freedom to roam around the entire house during the day! see that? no more baby-gate in front of my room! well, until night time comes. good enough, though.

ive also been hanging out in the front yard a lot lately. for some reason the weather is cooler and breezier there. i still have some shelter dog issues, so being in the front yard exposes me to the strange things i come across. Like humans doing the weird things they do.

once i graduate from the porch level, maybe i can go to the pet store more often. i kinda cause a scene everytime i bark at the people and dogs there. its probably because im the ONLY dog that barks there. i mean no harm though. barking is just what i do. just like humans talk on their little phones.

the treats are worth it though. oh the excitement in my buggy eyes!

come on, gimme it!

time to run inside now!


  1. Alfie! Those are the biggest ears!! No wonder you have to talk at the pet store - you can hear what everyone's saying about you!!

    We're glad you're getting more comfortable at home!

    -Gizmo, Bart and Ruby

    PeeeeS: I barked at other dogs all the time until recently. -Ruby

  2. You are doing very well, my friend. It takes time....as far as the barking....you just have a lot to say....nothing wrong with that!

  3. You are doing a great job at getting adjusted!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  4. hey Alfie,

    Congratulations on graduating to a leash-free house and a day-time free-range house! That is pawsome! You are moving up in the World! :-> I hope you graduate to Porch Level soon because that sounds like a fun place to be. Good luck!

    I LOVE the photos of your getting your treat! Your eyes are so big! Hilarious! You are such a cutie!


    p.s. Thanks for your nice comment on my blog! :->
