Default Ernie and Emma, some update rescue photos.

I've had these dogs for a little over a month now. Some photos, don't be fooled by the cute, they think they are little guard dogs (we are working on it).

After Bath photo, though they have dried some. They look like mini-lions when their fur is sticking out everywhere.


Me and Emma at a 4th of July parade. Ernie decided to camp out in my lap. They did pretty good for the most part, they disliked the loud mini-motorcycle (a clown) the most.


My son and Ernie. My kid decided he liked this one the best, but I've gotten him to share his attention, it was making Ernie a little crazy. He thought he should be boss man, but he gets too wound up to play leader, doesn't know when to stop.

Aww, they are adorable.

The photo with the child and dog concerns me a little though. Whilst the child is looking blissfully happy and is obviously handling the dog gently and appropriately, the dog looks extremely uncomfortable and is lifting a lip, which is often a pre-cursor to aggression. It may be too soon for these dogs to enjoy hugs.

He has a snag tooth, he's not growling. He volunteering walks into Ajay's lap if he sits down. I wouldn't let him hug him if he was growling or even showing a hint. I don't want any drama. That is just how his face is shaped. I didn't think about how growly he looked though, I'm use to his crooked tooth I guess.

He is also showing some whale eye in this shot. Could just be an unfortunate photo, but I would be cautious. Most dogs don't enjoy being hugged.

I do keep the kid at bay with them more now. I make sure he always allows an escape for the dogs if he tries to get petty. Ernie does do the submissive, "fine I'll just do what you want," thing. He was itching his underside last night so I gently put him on his back (in my lap, not on the floor, so just laying sideways) so I could make sure he wasn't getting any skin spots. Even when I was done he just stayed, though he didn't look happy about it. Whenever I brush teeth or something they don't like I always, "you're free!" when I'm done. He still didn't leave even after I gave him that out. I ended up just putting him back on his feet. I was sitting on the floor, so he could have left.
