|Emo-Hoagie doesn't care about the pretty Christmas tree... or he could just be staring at Daddy holding a cookie behind the camera...the world may never know.|
Much good food and quality family time was had by all! The pups were quite happy in their jaunty jingle bell collars, chewing on new squeaky toys. Hoagie's cousin Cocoa, was very pleased with her new light bulb shaped squeaky.
|Cocoa thinks she heard another squeaky on the beach.|
|Why there is a new little face in that picture. Awww... the cuteness is almost painful.|

Pretzel is currently enrolled in his first "big pup" class, Elementary Clicker at Gentle Touch. He's doing well, but it's very clear that he will provide plenty of fodder to interesting training posts. His terrier nature makes him a very different type of dog to train. He's already taught me a lot! In addition, he's my very first puppy, and this is my first time having two dogs. I've certainly got my hands full now! I just received my copy of Feeling Outnumbered? How to Manage and Enjoy Your Multi-Dog Household by the always awesome Patricia McConnell, Ph.D. and Karen London, Ph.D. I think I may also have to re-read my copies of Control Unleashed and Feisty Fido. They don't call 'em "Terrier Terrorists" for nothin'! All in all though, Pretzel is a fantastic little guy, who I look forward to enjoying for many happy years.

On a different note, I have a few housekeeping things:
First, I'd like to welcome anyone from BlogPaws to my blog! Secondly, a while back I added an RSS feed button up top, so if you are interested, be sure to add me to your feed or reader list. I've also made a facebook page for the blog, so be sure to like short paws or share a post or two on facebook!
Thanks for reading and have a Happy New Year!
