I finally got the tarps up to stop the fence fighting today.



So I let them out to run. It was the first time Babushka's been outside ever. According to her previous owner, she's never left the house. She had a blast. Here's a little video of her running with the big dogs. :)

And a couple of pictures.

So cute! I love her "crazy" eyes when she is doing the zoomies :)
She looks so intent in running, and she's quite fast, but with her little legs, she couldn't keep up with everyone.

They are all such cuties.
How wonderful Babuska is experiencing the outdoors !
I love her name, too :)


Isis looks quite a bit like Mela, the dog a friend of mine recently adopted.
I was surpised she had never let her outside. She had so much fun. And thank you, I've always wanted to name an animal Babushka. I've loved that word since I was a little girl. My mom would tell me not to go out in the snow without my babushka. (Scarf that ties under the chin)

I think Isis is a rat terrier or a chi/rat terrier mix. She is the neatest dog. So happy and full of energy. She jumps in place when she's excited.

Cute! I love that she immediately found and grabbed a stick!
Thank you. lol Yeah, that twig dwarfed her.

She's super cute! :)
About the name, Baboushka means grandma.
The reason you might think it means scarf is because in Russia our grannies all wear scarves
on their head, therefore when I wear a scarf to church hubby says I look like Baboushka,lol.
None the less it's original, but as I said before now you need a Dedoushka!(meaning grandpa) :lol:

Definition of BABUSHKA
1a : a usually triangularly folded kerchief for the head b : a head covering (as a scarf) resembling a babushka
2: an elderly Russian woman


I already have a dedouska, his name is Tico.

It's just the English speaking folks who started using the term because of our Russian
grannies, it's not an actual definition, just a slang I guess. It's just such a unique looking scarf
that when someone wears it the English folks call it Baboushka scarf, meaning granny scarf.
But who cares, it's original and fun! No worries. :) I didn't mean to be a smarty pants, just
thought I should let you know since I speak fluent Russian. Anywho, how old is Tico?

Baboushka reminded me of a funny song I heard not long ago. :)
It is really ridiculous and makes no sense, but you guys might still get a giggle out of it, take a look...

:rolleyes: :lol:
