Piston Tugs Daisy

Age: 22 weeks
Weight: 63 pounds

During this visit with the cousins, Piston was feeling a little more sure of himself and decided to take on Daisy playing tug. She hangs on and shakes with the usual JRT gusto! You can actually hear Piston kind of play growl back at her - that's a first for him! I was really impressed with how he'd just pull a little bit. He obviously had the size advantage but matched his play with her very well.

Merry Christmas!

Age: 22 weeks
Weight: 63 pounds

Okay, so we have no cute Christmas pictures with Piston in front of the tree, or with decorations or anything.....but, we thought we should share with you what Piston found for Christmas. It wasn't wrapped or anything, but he was sure it had his name on it!




Yes that's right....another dead pigeon part! See our November "Foul!" post to see his previous treasure!

Turkey Call??

Age: 22 weeks
Weight: 63 pounds

After our walk through PA State Game Lands we think Piston might have really liked the smell of those turkeys! So after getting the squeaker out of one of his toys, he thought he better practice that turkey call!

Piston LOVES the snow....so of course, we had to go out in the SNOW STORM to play fetch! Oh well, at least it was a warm snow and we should hopefully have a white Christmas! :)

I'd like to add that *I* was the one out in the snow while David took photos and video from the comfort of the house!

Catch!

Didn't take Piston very long to decide that catch was his new favourite game! Started out with just snowballs - but now he'll jump to try catch anything you throw!

On top of this just being a silly place to sleep....wanted to show you his colour! Look at his side!! Is that dark grey I see growing through the puppy fuzz??


Not so long ago....he used to be able to fit his whole body back there....but now, only his head!
