Looking at my last post, so much has happened!!
Things are alot more settled down, and im able to enjoy my tanks for the first time in a while, without stressing.
So for my update, ill start with furries first, starting with the puppies!
The puppies are doing great, though there has been problems. They are terrified of leaving the house/yard, and literally are scared shitless by leashes. [Toby fead pooped.] Its been difficult, and since both pups are to disctincgtly different, maggie being outgoing, alpha, though easily scared, shes easier to handle, and more like a 'normal' puppy. Toby on the other hand, is what were calling "a bit autistic". He is wary of everything and everyone, and will twist and squirm and run from you if you try to pick him up, or even go to touch him. He does like to be pet though, only on his terms. My boyfriend and I sit on the floor and talk to each other, and Maggie will come up and crawl in our laps and give kisses, cause shes a real cuddler. Toby will sit in the crate for how ever long he feels he needs to for it to be 'safe'.
Then hell stretch out, and lay half in and half out. Then wiggles out and sits just outside the crate, leaning on it. During this time, if you look at him, hell run back into the crate. Hell get up and quietly move around to your back, and peek at you. Then he nudges you, and if you move, hell run, so you stay still, and hell start licking you. He gets really happy when he licks, so we let him do it, even though its a bad habit, i see it as any love from Toby is good love. If you slowly give him your hand, low to the ground, he might lick you and let you touch him, but never an overhand pet. He really enjoys being pet, as the more you pet him, the more playful, and comfortable he gets. He starts playing with you, and loves his face rubbed and scratched. He actually likes you to play with his feet, and he gives kisses like theres no tomorrow! But make any move to grab him, or restrain him, or sudden movements, and hell bolt, and it all starts over again.
Problem is, my parents dont have the patience to do what me and my boyfriend do. Theyve never dealt with 'special' puppies before, and treat them like regular puppies, and that scares them! Ive tried to get my mom to understand that what she does scares the pups, and she tries to not do things, but sometimes shes so unaware. And my dad is a loud guy who talks with his hands, so that automatically makes them scared of him. Which is horrible, cause te reason we even got a puppy is for my dad, and now we have two, and their scared of him! Hes really down about it, but were helping him every day...
Anyways, heres some puppies in Jackets!
Heres the puppies at their saddest. Leash Training.
Saddest puppies in the world.
But seriously, they have gotten so BIG! They are both bigger than khodii, toby by a good three inches!
And then Theres Khodii. What a derp. =]
He recently got clipped, so he went from looking like this:
to looking like this:
Yeah. Big difference! But the puppies make him so DIRTY, and he needed a clipping before winter.
But Khodii is a cold puppy now...
So Khodii should wear a sweater...? XD
Khoodii hates it!
Really hates it!!

And finally, for all the fuzzy pets, theres Rainbob, my kitty. Hes a big ol grey tomcat who i raised from a kitten, and was supposed to be an indoor cat, but when i moved my mom let him outside. He got the taste for freedom, and now prowls the neighborhood in search of other cats to beat up. Hes still lovable and sticks around our house, but you rarely ever see him. I always hear his tags though. =]
Anyways, he came for a visit one day, and i hadnt seen him since before we lost lilly..So, i took some pictures..=]
