Since it’s been a couple of weeks, I thought I’d post an update or two on Gryphon (read: upload gratuitous puppy shots).

In some respects, I see a lot of Sam (hey! Poop eating! Stubbornness!), in others…not so much. Of course, we are also just starting to get confident in our world, which makes us naughty. Low-key, slow-moving naughty, but naughty nonetheless. (My in-laws were over last week, and the day before they had been at sister-in-law’s house. S-I-L and B-I-L have a lab puppy.Β  In Laws asked me if our dog was drugged πŸ˜€ In comparison to a lot of puppies, he’s pretty mellow for sure. Especially in our family where almost everyone has a hunting dog of some sort–labs, vizlas, weim/weim mixes, springers, etc. So NOT low-key dogs.)

We’re 11 weeks old today, and weighing in at 23.3ish lbs, so solid, but not overly large. But who knows…puppies grow in fits and spurts.

And now, for the important part: the pictures!

At 9.5 weeks…Sadie is hogging the bed (to be fair, it IS her bed :p)

Lastly…and let’s see if I can get it to work…here’s a video of Sadie (finally) deciding to play (albeit begrudgingly). The noise you hear is all Sadie. She has inappropriate social skills. Most of her “games” sound like a cross between Celebrity Death Match and a perpetually horny, yet continually sexually, frustrated muppet.


  • Thank you for all the gratuitous puppy photos….love them.

    And Sadie does seem to be at least a little interested in her new housemate.

    OMD! O M D!!!!!!

    And Sadie, kudos to you for showing such restraint! And you are a very, very pretty girl!

    The pictures are adoravle!! I cannot believe how big he has gotten! And look at those paws in that first pic…..huge!!

    I still can’t believe he’s not a stuffed plush toy! His fur is whiter than fresh fallen snow. Do you bleach that pup’s fur or something?!

    I LOVE how he p.ays…he’s like one of those “fainting goats”, just fall down, roll over and let Sadie expend all the energy and effort! Just a cuddles bug!!

    You DO sleep with him in the bed right? He would make THE softest pillow!

    So glad you posted today! These will make us all smile for days…weeks…..forever!

    Sam sure knew EXACTLY what he was doing by sendng you this extraordinary dog. Clearly he didn’t get Sadie’s feedback. Although she really seems to be enjoying the pup…just doesn’t want to admit it!

    Sooooooo glad you are here…all of you, including Poop Eating Sam!

    Sending you lots of love and hugs!

    PS……Yeah, Sadie makes a lot of “unusual” noises when she plays! Great descriptions you gave them! Now we all know what horny SOUNDS like!

  • Geez, I want to squish him so badly. He still looks like a puppy but he’s darn near as big as Sadie already. Oh boy! Thanks for sharing.

    Squish him for me. πŸ˜€

  • Bhahahaha! Sexually frustrated Muppet!

    Oh you little cute thing, I just want to smoosh you again and again you are soooooo kissable! I can’t believe how fast you’re growing.

  • Oh my gosh he is so cute. I love his face & ears. He definitely would give Snickers & Jasmine a run for their money.

    omyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy dawg!!!!!
    where is that “too friggin cute for the computer” button!!
    He just looks so squishsy!!! so cuddly!!! so.. adorable!!
    It’s amazing how quick they grow..
    I am sure it does your heart good to see Sadie coming around as well.. it takes them a while but they do come around..
    My Maggie was the same way in the beginning.. she would growl and snarl at Wilson… and now we have to watch Wilson because he sometimes knocks her over during play…
    Thanks for the puppy update!!!!
    Christine….. with Franklin in her heartβ™₯

  • He is absolutely as poufy and smooshable as he looks πŸ˜€ And, just like Sam, he is has no time for smushes and kisses πŸ˜‰

  • OMG! I’ve always wanted to know what a sexually frustrated muppet sounded like. Sadie’s got it. Totally. Her white fuzzball pal should help her with that…. He’s DARN cute!
