Stick Time Again

Wednesday, May 30th, 2018

After 15 minutes of running around chasing the stick and/or running around playing keep away from me when he has it, Luce gets tired and lays down:

If I don’t get to him fast enough, he like to chew it a bit:

Luce Crashed Out In the Doorway

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Luce likes to sleep in the doorway alcove just outside my home office door. So I am just sitting in my office working and Luce starts snoring pretty loudly. I went to see what was going on and found him pressed against the door and 2 walls and still completely asleep.

Please Don’t Take My Pillow

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

As has been covered before, Luce likes to use my gym bag as a pillow in the back seat. He usually just pulls back when I come to get it out but this time it was a little different. He looked up without moving his head and had a look as if to say: “Please Don’t Take My Pillow”.

Luce era un cane cattivo. Lui piace il formaggio…

Luce was a bad dog. He likes cheese, and apparently any cheese, such as pub cheese with jalapeno. We happened to leave it on a low table and when we left the room, he decided to help himself. The loud licking sounds gave him away but not before he had a bunch. Being the stubborn dog that he is, he showed no remorse. In the pic below, he knows what remains of the tub of cheese is there and even tried to get a little more. Fortunately, it was a higher up on the counter so he couldn’t reach it. There did not seem to be any ill effects so maybe he is channeling our girl Sasha who had an iron stomach.

Now you might be thinking, he looks so innocent… but I know better. He actually couldn’t keep his cool as the temptation eventually became too great:

There must be something going on in Luce’s family because his brother Max just got in big trouble:

Luce Playing “Chase the Stick” Again

Sunday, May 13th, 2018

Here we have some live action of Luce chasing the stick and not wanting to let go. He has learned to “drop” it some of the time, but most of the time I count: uno, due, tre and he will let go by tre. Then, back to the game.

Luce in the Mountains (Sort of)

This picture was taken near our house just above a drop off to a valley between where we are and a mountain in the background.

Is This Something I Need To Deal With?

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018

Luce likes to get comfortable on our bed. I would like to say, just when we are not in it, but oh yes, he likes to snuggle in with us there as well. Obviously to adults and a big dog don’t exactly fit well on a queen size bed. Here, Luce is taking a rest:

When all of the sudden he heard something:

Not sure what that was so I better get back to what I was doing:

Can We Do Something Fun NOW???

Tuesday, May 1st, 2018

When Stacey is not here, Luce hangs with me while I work in my home office. He spends most of his time under the desk at my feet. That is, until he gets restless. Then he might need some “tug-of-war” time, or maybe just some floor play. Other times he wants to go for a walk, play in the family room, go in the car, etc.. At those times, he leans on the door, which makes a distinctive sound, and waits like here:
