Eko Appreciation Day

The new pup (we have a name, but I’m not telling until tomorrow!) stole the show this past week. My time and focus have been largely spent on her. I’ve done my best to involve Eko in everything (he especially enjoys the extra treats) and despite the trying circumstances Eko has been a huge help with the pup. He even helped me pick up dog food that wasn’t for him!

Well, the food in the bag wasn’t for him, but Eko was content to clean up after a spill

To honor Eko’s efforts I designated yesterday “Eko Appreciation Day” and while the pup slept we went out for a serious romp.

It was just me, Eko and the open trail. Chasing the pup is fun, but I could see Eko was happy to cut loose and turn on the afterburners

Did I say happy? I mean really happy… Really, really, happy!

Jumping for joy

Over the coming months, raising and training baby girl puppy is going to absorb most of my time. Eko will be right there with me as assistant teacher, so I need to make sure he gets the appreciation and individual attention he deserves. And I’m sure he won’tย mind a few extra treats for his efforts either!

Comments for Eko Appreciation Day

  1. Victoria says:

    Eko will keep you hoping even w/the new little girl! And he looks like he loves to do it too!

  2. your should be a part of Will Pharrells video :o) I agree, sometimes we need such a “just-dad-and-me-no-girls-allowed” day. Have a good Memorial Day :o)

  3. You are the BEST Doggy Daddy! Great photos!

  4. Not just the extra attention, but the extra opportunity to burn some energy. That, of course, will help him tolerate Baby Girl a little more easily. But I KNOW you know that. ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy your special time with Eko!

    when momwithoutpaws tries to teach me a trick old cissy always comes over waiting for me to get it right so she can snatch a treat also. I do not mind as long as I get mine first.

  6. It was nice to give him time to himself, looks like he loved it! Can’t wait to hear the new name. Have a great Memorial Day.

    Look how happy he is:-)

  8. Great action shots! Eko is going to be an AMAZING big brother for puppy girl…..what a pair they will be…….

  9. Eko has had you to himself all his life – it will be a big change for him. It is great parenting that you give him Eko only time!

    I have to admit, I have some serious jealousy issues with Bailie sometimes. We have tons of fun together and normally get along, but sometimes I just wish I was still the baby getting all the attention. Mom makes a big effort to spend time alone with each of us and to make sure when Bailie is training we all get involved and all get treats, but sometimes the diva in me comes out and I get pissed. Eko is younger, so I bet he will adapt better. It will be tons of fun for the pups and lots of work for you.

    Is it just me, or is that an alligator that Eko just jumped over? LOL He is such a brave and loyal soul, it wouldn’t surprise me a bit, especially if Will or the new pup were on the other side. What time will you be on the road, Will? I’ll make sure not to drive in the same area so as not to endanger the new “BABY ON BOARD”. Not much chance of that happening, but just in case you cross the Arkansas line, be even more vigilant. Have a wonderful arrival with your precious cargo (both of them). And not to be forgotten, best of wishes to you and Emily for the future arrangements.

  12. You’re like lightning, E. All your flips and flurps are flapping in the breeze! What a fun day your dad gave you!

    Love and licks,

  13. That does look like one VERY happy Eko! What a great set of pictures. Can’t wait to hear what you decided to name Little Sister!

  14. Love the jumping shot Eko!

  15. joanb49 says:

    Great parenting Will!

  16. What a good dad you are. Making sure Eko gets his time will help ensure he doesn’t resent baby sis. He looks ecstatic!

  17. Woohoo! Happy Eko Appreciation Day to you! What a trooper ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Eko is enter a new chapter in life. Once you get the puppy he won’t remember what it was like before. Two dogs are a piece of cake, easy to pet at the same time.

  19. Look at that big ole smile…sweet Eko we can see you are really, really, really happy. We are so glad you got to take a nice romp with Will and have some time just the two of you. It won’t be long until the three of you will be romping and enjoying. Hugs and nose kisses

  20. Weeeeeee, look at him go! What a face ๐Ÿ˜€
