Is it true that puppies are ALWAYS getting into trouble?.....journal by Keegan

Well, it's sad to say, little brothers and sisters, but today is starting off "interesting" for me!

See, just this very week, Mommy has finally gotten comfortable enough with my puppy-ness to let me play out in our privacy-fenced backyard under only the supervision of Buddy and Gracie, while she is inside the house! Woo hoo! And have I had a ball! Woo hoo! (Of course, Holly has had a ball being inside with Mommy without me "herding" her around the living room, but we won't talk about that right now...)
Well, see, Gracie has always, always. always just loved me like I'm her baby boy--her own little child puppy! So, she easily puts up with all of my constant shenanigans--jumping, barking at her face to get up and play, etc. etc. etc...
Well, Buddy had kind of a hard time accepting me when I first came to my forever home, and used to run away from me all the time and go to his room, and then wouldn't let me jump up on him or sniffy him too much. This past weekend, my mommy noticed that he has fully accepted all my puppy-ness now, and is always smiling at me and doesn't mind me nuzzling him and running by him and stuff. So, of course, me being full of tons of energy and mischief at all times, I have to push the envelope! Just now, Mommy was peeking out the patio door at Gracie, me and Buddy and what did I do? Well, I was excited to see my mommy on the inside of the glass, while I was on the outside, and even though I had already been close to the door and looking in at her, I decided that Buddy was too close to the door because I wanted next to it again and didn't feel like going to where Gracie was looking in, and Buddy was standing just in the spot where I wanted to be! So, I tried my best manuever, the one I use on Holly all the time, every day, and it ALWAYS works with Holly, and that's just to push my way into him and shove him aside!
Oops! Didn't work this time! Mommy witnessed me finally getting the doggy correction I've been working toward for almost a year now, bol, bol! Mommy! How can you think this about little baby sweet cutie me? Buddy turned quickly when I pushed into his side and he DIDN'T move, and he's a lot bigger than me and he gave a "Grrrrr" and a glare, and the look on my face was surprise! I backed up and just looked at him in amazement! What? What was this? I thought, I mean, I thought I could do that? You mean I can't do that to every doggy? Just to Holly? Oops! I'm sorry, Buddy!
BOL! Mommy says she's glad that Buddy is a sweet doggy and it was a gentle correction, or she'd be worried, but she thinks I just learned not to "herd" him around like I do my sissy, Holly! Whew! This puppy-ness and being a little brother is some hard stuff sometimes, sweet friends, isn't it?
