“This pup is crazy!”

One of the things I love about Penny, and all young pups, is their relentless, unfiltered exuberance. That exuberance requires no cause or justification, it just simply is. However, it can also be exasperating for me to keep up. I’m not the only one though – I have captured plenty
One of the things I love about Penny, and all young pups, is their relentless, unfiltered exuberance. That exuberance requires no cause or justification, it just simply is. However, it can also be exasperating for me to keep up. I’m not the only one though – I have captured plenty of four-legged friends who all share a look which says the same thing – “This pup is crazy!”Rhodesian Ridgeback, puppy, chicago, marking our territory, pet-friendly

There of course a plethora of photos with Eko in varying states of exasperation, but this is one of my favorites. “Will, she has a soccer ball stuck to her head and is jumping on my head. And you’re just going to laugh?” Answer: yes.

My brother’s dog, Dutch, tried the old “If I don’t look at her in the eyes, maybe this crazy pup will leave me alone.” Answer: nope!

Even Auggie, a puppy himself, was happily exasperated. “This pup is crazy, Will. I like her, but she’s crazy!”

At the dog park this pup kept picking up different tennis balls and running away. He didn’t understand Penny didn’t want a tennis ball, she just wanted to romp

The eyes say it all here!

Accidentally, this guy slammed into Penny at the beach and sent her rolling. He was worried about Penny at first, but when she popped up and came storming his way I think he was more worried about himself!

Is Penny a bit crazy? I think humans and dogs would agree, but that’s what makes her such a perfect fit for me!

Comments for “This pup is crazy!”

  1. She IS “crazy” but in an ohhhhh sooooooooooooooooo GOOD way!!! Love her!

  3. OhMelvin says:

  4. Marcela says:

  6. PigLove says:

    Crazy nah. Slightly touched maybe – snorts. I think we all go through this phase. Sometimes mom still thinks I am still. Rolls piggy eyes. Go figure. I say enjoy it my friend. XOXO – Bacon

  7. Well there’s a difference between “crazy-cute” and “crazy-wacko” – Penny has the first category NAILED!

    Penny looks pretty self confident! Bailie is pretty nuts, but only with dogs she knows. She is a bit shy with strangers. Mom hates to tone her down and make her be obedience as she loves to watch her lust for life.

  9. So much fun craziness!

  10. Ogee says:

    No worries, Will. She’ll settle in after a couple years. 🙂

  11. pawedblog says:

    Yes, yes she is crazy! And it’s absolutely adorable!! The perfect way to be… Hmm, I’m a little worried about Augie though, he looks like he needs a safe haven. Maybe he should come and live with us? Just a thought 😉
    Hugs, Carrie and Pups x

  12. Ingrid says:

    She is toooo cute for words even if others think she’s crazy – crazy cute. I wish I could reach through the screen and snuggle her…. extra skin and all 🙂

  13. Kyla says:

    Kali would give her a run for her money.

  14. She is the cutest crazy dog in the world. I think I would probably jump on her head to introduce myself. Then I would try to hide behind Mom because she can out-crazy me by a mile.

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake

    I’ve always heard that most writers/authors are a little bit crazy. So, t makes good sense to have your life filled with that kind of craziness. And, Emily doesn’t seem the worse for wear with it. Sounds to me like you have a real soul mate; someone who can take it all on and come up smiling. The perfect storm! Much love to Eko and Penny, another great match.

  16. Crazy fun and funny is what that sweet girl is. Love the pictures. All the dogs deserve a nice treat for being so patient with that sweet girl. Hugs and nose kisses

  17. Sage says:

    Uh, no. Not crazy. Sage was totally the same way back in the day. Fortunately (or not) it will end, as you well know. Until then, I’m sure Eko will be looking a bit askance for a while.

  18. Oh crazy puppies! It was strange to have the Puffs who were both so passive and sweet after having all puppies like Penny in our family. I really missed that happy crazy 🙂

  19. Great action shots and the cute snuggle in the bed photo, see she can take a moment to rest. And yes I got a crazy one too in Gambler, he wears me out but I wouldn’t have it any other way. And he is 3 yrs old!!!

  20. Küster was so crazy that I’m still recovering, two and a half years later! Penny is adorable and I have a feeling she will be that way for a loooooooong time!

  21. We love crazy! Crazy is good!
    Wally & Sammy
