Leland's Life

And the Adventures Awaiting Lucian Reign

Testing Limits

Filed under: Uncategorized — leland4 at 8:19 pm on Sunday, September 7, 2014

So this weekend was the 2nd time Lucian was around my step-daughters Husky (Balto) and Chow mix (Diesel).  Last weekend Lucian was stuck on a leash around Balto and Diesel but this weekend we needed to see how they would do together without Lucian being completely restrained.  Well, of course only being 16 weeks old Lucian has to test how far he can annoy Balto and Diesel before they snap.  Balto is 5 years old so he has a little play left in him so he and Lucian did pretty well together running and carrying on…for a while.  Diesel is 11 years old and he’s the grumpy old man of the group and wants nothing to do with the youngin.  Lucian kept bringing toys over to him trying to get him to play and all he got was snarls for the effort.


“Here Diesel…you can play with my ball”


“BACK OFF yougin…I don ‘t want to play with the darn ball!”


“It’s ok kid…I’ll play with you”


“Ok kid I’m not as young as you so lets take 5”


All and all no blood was drawn even though Lucian got put in his place a few times.  They were together for a about an hour and half and all 3 were ready for naps.

Later in the afternoon we took Lucian’s ears down to give them a break from the posting and I think his body is starting to grow into the ears.  He weighed 40 lbs last weekend at 15 weeks.  Not sure what he’s pushing this weekend but he’s definitely put on some more weight.

WOW… those are still some BIG ears!!! Definitely Jasper worthy big!!! I’m fascinated by the whole ear thing (if you can’t tell). LOVE it!!!

And I have to say, I love the photo w/the slight snarl… probably a warning. Shelby did that as she got older when dogs got too close.

I love how comfortable and at home he is with you … adventures with Lucian! He’s doing amazing (and so are you)!

Those ears. I am sure he will grow into them.
If all he did was snarl & snap a few times then I think all was good. He was letting him know his boundaries with him. The girls never listen to Bosch (well they do but it gets kinda crazy sometimes). I have taken to using a squirt bottle when they get too carried away.

Lucien is doing so well.

Kids, what are you gonna do right?

Those ears though….he better keep growing or they are going to lift him up off the ground and fly him around so nobody can catch him!
