Mister Peepers

It was too rainy (and cold!) to take Maisie to the dog park this weekend, and by yesterday afternoon she was bouncing off the walls.  So I was extra happy that my friend Curtis brought his dog Mr. Peepers over last night for our weekly Sunday Funday gathering. Peeps is a smart little prince of a Boston terrier, and he and Maisie love their playdates.  He is unfamiliar with the concept of sharing though, and will often steal a toy or antler right out of Maisie's mouth...Maisie, shockingly, allows it.  Peepers also enjoys humping Maisie as much as possible, which (unsurprisingly) Maisie does not allow.  While her issues are primarily behavioral in nature, Mr. Peepers has more than his share of medical problems...mainly, the fact that he is allergic to nearly everything.  He can only eat special food and takes daily medication, but still has an irritated, itchy chest almost all the time.

After the first round of wrestling and chasing and chewing antlers together, Peeps and Maisie sat with us as we decided what to order for dinner.  We all enjoyed some champagne as we discussed our options.
Curtis ponders the many dining possibilities (my pig and tiara were birthday gifts)

Both dogs were able to just chill out for a while before round 2 of playtime.  They really are the best of friends. :)

I love the name Mister Peepers too. We just saw some antlers over at our pet shop and were interested in them. I heard they also had a lot of vitamins and good stuff in them. How do you like them?

Maisie LOVES the antlers. See my previous post for more info (and where to get 'em cheap)!

Mister Peepers is a perfect name! Parker and Skye also love their antlers, and are anti-humping. Even if it is happy humping.

Mister Peepers does love his Maisonaise. XOXO from us both.
