Funny stuff

This movie  is about two weeks old. As you can see, he was still a petty small pup then. The cat is the nicer one of our two. The one without front claws. His name is Sebastian and he is half Siamese and half Maine Coon.

The second  movie is from this past weekend. The pup was out to see if the cat wanted to play. You can really hear the impact of the "Flurry of Paws!!!!!one!!!" in this one. The size difference of Jazz between the two is telling. He is not going to be a small dog when he grows up.



In other news, life is busy. No free night this week. Moving the last of our shit out of the downtown apartment on Saturday. Hope to get some sleep on Sunday, not betting on it.

It's a good thing... by toxicfur (2.00 / 0) #1 Thu Jul 27, 2006 at 06:14:47 AM EST
Sebastian doesn't have front claws, or poor Jazz would be wearing an eyepatch. Either that, or he'd learn a bit sooner that teh cat really isn't into the whole playing thing.

Also, +1 puppy! and kitty!

I think he learned fairly quickly by MartiniPhilosopher (4.00 / 1) #3 Thu Jul 27, 2006 at 06:31:34 AM EST
Our other cat is not declawed and the only time he decides to attempt to play with her is when she is our of range. Usually when hiding in and among the pile of boxes behind the love seat in the movies. It was probably one of those moments when we weren't watching too closely that she did the old whap and then claw trick to let him know of such things.

Luckily, we have been socializing him with some friend's dogs who are slowly warming up to the oversized battery of playfulness. He badly needs a romping partner or three.

I don't think by paperdoll (2.00 / 0) #2 Thu Jul 27, 2006 at 06:27:23 AM EST
Lab and lab mixes have a lot of nerve endings in their muzzles.  Mine used to think swat at the cat was the most fun game ever.  My ex sister in law's cat would just rake them across the nose and without flinching they'd take their turn swatting the cat and send it flying across the room.  Then they would chase the cat so the cat could swat them again.  Tails wagging the whole time. This would go on until the cat was rescued from the game, by someone who didn't find it as funny as I did.

Jazz does have something telling him by MartiniPhilosopher (2.00 / 0) #4 Thu Jul 27, 2006 at 06:36:17 AM EST
about pain at the nose level. We've had to correct his behavior a few times that way ourselves.

The amusing part has been where he has been "all-legs" so to speak and accidently fallen into the cat a couple of times. At which point he has learned that the cat does indeed come with pointed bits. So far, no blood has been spilt and with luck (and our continued patient training of Jazz) we won't ever have any.

I love by paperdoll (4.00 / 1) #5 Thu Jul 27, 2006 at 06:48:39 AM EST
the all leg, ear and tail phase of puppies.  They are so cute at that point falling over nothing, getting so excited that the wagging tail knocks them over, tripping over ears.  It's the best.  You are going to have one big boy on your hands he's a total charmer.
