My dog is squirrely, and it's making me nuts...

Yes, Uncle of the many names he goes by.  This photo cracks me up with that blur of tail.  It is in constant motion; hence, the Wigglebutt.  The uncle comes because I call him my childrens' brother, which makes him my grandchildrens' uncle.  One of them actually calls him that.  :)

What is driving me crazy is the house training.  He spends all his outdoor time hunting...and eating...acorns.  Totally uninterested in potty time...perfectly happy doing that inside...and he's getting lots of fiber from the acorns, so...

Here's another favorite pastime of his...deer stalking.  These low windows must have been made with him in mind.  He loves watching the deer...and barking, barking, barking till I give him a time out.

And then there's this:

Oh, hell no!

    1. The cuteness factor is his saving grace! :)

  2. He will learn about the potty stuff but I doubt he will ever get over liking the acorns. It's the crunch!

    1. A friend told me acorns can be poisonous, and a quick internet search tends to confirm it. I'm going to have to remember to ask the vet when we go in next week.

  3. Ahhh yes, potty training is such fun. Having some issues with my two new kitties as well... Always something to keep us on our toes!

    1. Oh, no! I started to say that I would be thinking of you as I’m dealing with the pet doody duty, but that doesn’t sound very nice. But know I am wishing you well!

  4. That is the only thing that puts me off about having a dog - the doggie doo! Cats dispose of their waste when outside which I like a lot!
    Uncle Wigglebutt is too cute!
