Overall, Luke has been a great puppy, but he does have his mischievous moments!! OK, he also has times where he has me pulling my hair out, but we’ll just share the fun things for now! 🙂
1. He likes to climb on Sheba’s head….he was literally on her head before I could get the picture taken. He loves to climb all over her really, and she has come to be very tolerant of it!
2. He brings the pre-rinse dishwashing cycle to a new level:
3. He loves to wrestle with Cricket. This is good mischief (as long as they don’t get carried away), because it’s been a long time since Cricket has had anyone her size to wrestle with (Kobi is above all that silliness at his age). Luke is growing like a weed, averaging a gain of 2 pounds per week, and his legs are getting LONG. We’re not sure if these two will continue to wrestle once he gets bigger than her, so we’ll enjoy it while it lasts. Keep in mind Cricket is 9 years old so it’s a lot of fun to see her playing like this!

Oh my goodness that video is too cute. I saw the post in my feed and could not wait to find time to read/watch. Luke is just adorable as all puppies are. Looks like for now Cricket has a great wrestling bud.
Thanks, it makes me happy you were looking forward to it. He is just so cute, and I know he’s going to grow up too fast!

Oh, the dishwasher shot reminds me of our beagle! She used to do the same!
Unfortunately, Rita is terrible about doing a good job licking the dishes. I’m wasting a lotta water since we got her as I now have to rinse the dishes myself!
Love the video!
All of ours love to do the pre-rinsing…..the only problem is we have four dogs and only two plates after supper! They actually share pretty well though.
Glad you liked the video!!

I think all puppies stand on the dishwasher door, my adults still try to stand on the door. Cute video!
Oh no….Luke is already getting too heavy for it….I think the whole thing is going to come down pretty soon! It’s apparently not anchored very well.
Cute pictures! Who needs a dishwasher when you have a dog willing to oblige?
Thanks! They all like to do the pre-rinse, but Luke is the only one who feels the need to get right in there! 🙂
Seems to be breaking all the rules! When I get on to ours they walk around all day sulking and you just have to give in and pet them.
They do not like to hear the word “no” when they want to do something! 🙂

That is so cute! I’m glad they have fun wrestling. My two wrestle hard but Pierre (Westie) has an unfair advantage over Bentley (Basset) because he grabs Bentley’s ears. I was watching to see if Luke has discovered they make great handles. God love your Golden, they are such tolerant souls.
Oh no, those big Basset ears are too easy of a target! 🙂 I’ve seen Luke go after his sisters’ ears some, but not a lot. Yes, Sheba is very patient indeed!
Believe me, we understand. Bailie is a very good, mostly mellow puppy, but she has her moments. Now that she has learned that she doesn’t have to fight for food, feeding issues have slowed thankfully, but she does have those wild moments where Mom wonders what she was thinking when she got Bailie!
I know exactly how your Mom feels. I had one of those mornings today…..Luke was just being a total “brat”! Then I went shopping and came back and now he’s being an angel. They like to keep us guessing….or they know when they’ve pushed it too far for a while! 🙂

Oh puppy antics. I love hearing about them because I don’t know if I would be able to cope with them!
It’s one of those things that is very good to enjoy vicariously through someone else ….happy to provide that service (most of the time). 🙂

Haha, can’t believe he climbed right up on the dishwasher, too funny!
At first, he just put his front paws up there, and I couldn’t believe when he climbed completely up there!
You’re so right. It’s good to see old dogs wrestle and play. I encourage mine and get them all riled up so they’ll chase and play bitey face. 🙂
Normally, all I could ever get Cricket and Sheba to do was chase the ball. Good exercise for them, but they needed a little more variety!
Jen K says
So cute! I could watch puppy-wrestling videos all day!
I know, I just sit and watch them….it’s so much fun!
Roxy the traveling dog says
Awww puppies. The best mischief makers around.
Oh yes, they are quite good at it!
Jenna,Mark “HuskyCrazed” Drady says
Hehehe, ahhh puppy mischief BOL! Gotta love it though! As “annoying” as it may be sometimes 🙂
“love is being owned by a husky”
It is “mostly” fun! 🙂
Luke is a bundle of energy and EVER so cute……!!! The head climb is hilarious…..
Yes, but the cats don’t seem to put up with it like Sheba does! And I’m sure you understand that, Sammy!
Caren Gittleman says
What a cutie Luke is! enjoy those moments, as you know, they go by fast!!
Oh yes, I know they will! He already is just changing so fast!
