Default Finally, my own journal! By Socrates

I'm Socrates and I finally get my own journal here too
Everyone has probably already learned about my new sister, Isabella.

My mom says that I still have some socialization issues and that it takes me some time to warm up to some people...Well I share my home with 4 teenagers and 2 birds and now Bella my new adopted chi sister. (I was supposed to get turkey and gravy and sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving and I got Bella ). I figure it took mom 21 years to fill her ark and she can just give me some time besides she claims that human children grow up and move out someday...I personally haven't seen any signs of this happening though.

Anyway, my mom and Jason are still my favoritest people in the whole world! The other three are nice to me and I like them but I'm Jason's little Boooda boy. Jason's great, when his band gets famous...I'm going to be his roady dog/mascot. I don't know what that is, but as long as it means I get to be with Jason I'm O.K. with that

Jason's last gig, I even got to go on stage with him...Well I kind of got on stage before (did anyone know that you can find comfy pillows in a drum?) and then when they started playing I was already on stage so I got to stay for the set

It's winter here so Jason and I don't go very far from home and I just stay home when he snowboards...Jeesh these humans are strange..leaving a heated comfy home to go play in frozen rain In the spring and summer it will be going and watching Jason swim and surf (I'm Jason's official little surfer-dude buddy) and camping with mom and the family. I love spring and summer and I will have so much fun watching my drama queen sister on her first camping trip :P

until next time

First let me say that my mom is crazy, which will explain today. My mom went shopping after church today and bought a digital camera

She has since decided that I have to be a model so she can learn how to use the thing! She also decided for whatever reason that Bella and I need to do pictures together and we actually tried this but its hard to get in the same picture when you don't want your little sister touching you

Oh mom also bought me a new coat because she bought Bella a new poncho, and shirt, but Jason saved me from having to wear the coat because Jason understands I am perfectly ok being the way nature intended...nakey

So now she has posted all the pictures on here I bet This was actually fun watching mommy get flustered trying to figure everything out! She really can be silly sometimes.

Well Socrates has delayed jealousy problems or something! The past couple of days he has been very grouchy with Bella. He won't share the couch with her and their doggy romps in the park he was just grouchy and chased her off and ran all by himself.
This has happened just since she was feeling bad and took a couple of days off from walking because of her shots. It could have been that she was wearing one of her shirts and he wasn't clothed? All I know is we have to still work on this socialization thing with him. I guess it's one step forward, two steps back with Socrates.

Okay, for the most part Socrates is accepting that Bella has moved into the home, but he acts so funny in a passive/aggressive type of way. He's not mean or vicious to her but he steals her bones and hoards them with his. The other night he sat on hers while chewing on His!!

I think that their running/playing at the park isn't as bad as I thought because I noticed both of them get kind of rough and tumble but no one yelps or cries or gets hurt, and no one is doing real nips or bites, just air bites or snaps.

If I put her blankies out for her, he is likely to lay down on them himself, even though he's not a blankie dog and has his own blankie that he doesn't care one whit about.

I haven't really been too hurried to correct any behaviors yet, except the stealing/hoarding bones because I thought it was best to let them sort out for theirselves which is more dominant and which is more passive and even when I do have to correct I am trying to work on positives rather than scolding or correcting most of the time. This has always been the best approach for Socrates so I'm sticking with what's worked in the past.

There have been positive things come from the tension of adding a new dog. Socrates is more willing to greet people, especially if he senses they are talking to Bella, he will actually go park himself in peoples laps that he never would have gotten close to before, so he's learning to greet people even if it's not the best reason and I actually got him to fetch and retrieve a rawhide bone the other night for several minutes. This is a brand new game for him! Oh well, enough rambling thoughts for one night.

Well, I don't really have a lot to say today, probably because of my sleep deprivation caused by Bella my little sister! Jeesh, I have only been able to get one or two good naps a day now with her around!

She wants to play all day, it's always 'come on Sox, lets wrestle', or 'Socwatees, tag your it!', or 'hah, I got you!'. I mean, she just doesn't stop! Mom says it just shows that she really does love me and wants to be with me (well, of course she would love me! who wouldn't?) but a guy has to have his naps and his lounging around, not doing anything time!

Well it's late and we're waiting for mommy to go to bed, that's the only time Bella really naps, so I better get a nap myself...before Bella decides to wake up!

Oh, thought everyone might like to see one of my favorite people, Jason

Well, don't tell my sister Bella but I got my dogster page first!

Yep, I'm all set, I think meeting new friends on the net is just what I've been looking for...don't have to go through that awkward "I don't know if I like you or if you're nice" stuff like meeting nose to nose. I really don't enjoy meeting nose to nose usually! Last time I met someone nose to nose, she MOVED IN!!

Here's my dogster site http://www.dogster.com/?236971
