Puppy Days

Pixel as a Puppy, Pt. 1

Pixel was a little scared the first time he saw his new cage, but not too scared to use it as a potty! Does he look a little embarrassed? ๐Ÿ™‚ย โ™ฅ๐Ÿ•

He was very curious as a puppy, so he did a lot of exploring. He really seemed to like the kitchen! It’s such a small room for us humans, but when you’re as small as Pixel was, even the tiniest spaces offer such big opportunities!

The only thing stronger than Pixel’s curiosity was his desire to relax and sleep. He needed so much rest as a puppy! With all the growing he was doing at the time, who could blame him?! ๐Ÿ™‚

Pixel’s First Friend

Pixel’s first, and favorite, friend is named Shadow! Shadow is a Border Collie mix, and although he’s much older than Pixel, he’s so kind and gentle that Pixel has adopted him as a role model! We think that Pixel made a good choice. ๐Ÿ™‚

The first time they met, Pixel was a little hesitant. After all, he had never been around another dog outside of his doggy family!

But thanks to Shadow’s gentle nature, it didn’t take much time for Pixel to build the confidence to introduce himself with a couple of kisses on Shadow’s nose!

The puppy love proved to be just enough to get Shadow to open up and offer his toy raccoon for some play time. What a generous canine!

The two were so comfortable with each other by the end of their first play session, that they were able to get some post-play rest and relaxation in as well. ๐Ÿ•

We even got a little bit of the playtime on video! Shadow sure is patient as Pixel jumps for attention! ๐Ÿ™‚

Pixel’s First Day

Pixel came to live with us when he was only two months old! The very first time we saw him, he was resting with his little baby brother.


He was very nervous when he came home for the first time. His little legs were so tiny that he could hardly walk!


But it didn’t take long for him to get comfortable!


And even more comfortable…


It wasn’t hard for us to identify Pixel’s favorite activity! Even today, he sleeps almost as much as he did as a puppy.

Here he’s using his toy as a pillow. How clever for a little puppy!
