The Obedient One

Guess what I am learning?
Puppies are SO much easier to raise than little tiny baby boys. South African Boerboels are not only better then kids, they are so much more obedient. The picture depicts a typical moment of every day. Commands such as "drop it", "leave it", and "stay" are obeyed by the dog, but not with the boy. Sometimes we forget who we are talking to and actually say to our little Jack to "drop it" when he is holding something he shouldn't.

While Africa sits or lays around for most of the day. Jack is walking, crawling, and opening everything everywhere. I think Africa gets tired just watching him. I know I do.


  1. Since little boys grow up to be men/big boys, woo should be surprised!

    Africa is so patient!

    Thanks fur sharing that great shot!


  2. Hi Africa! Nice to meet you! Well, doggies must be very patient sometimes. Our owner is always taking our pics in funny positions and costumes!

  3. Ha roo roo roo! What a great picture! Maybe Africa was trying to teach you, sort of prepping you for your little biped!
    Hang in there - you've got a tough job, but oh, what great rewards!
    Tail wags,

  4. Ha Ha - Mom says she could tell you lots about how much easier pupsters are than little boy bipeds. Try having one kindergartner, 3 year old twins boy and girl, and another almost three year old boy all togther at one time - fun, fun, fun!!!

  5. OH Africa, what a great sport you are! I don't know how I would feel about baies crawling all over me. :)


  6. Awww.. poor Africa!! She's so patient!!

    Don't worry, I think she will 'reap her rewards' soon when little Jack start to learn to 'share' his food with her. :P

  8. Hey Kasha - great picture. Africa is adorably patient.. You know what they say about kids: the first 2 years we do everything to make them talk and walk, the next 16 years we want them to sit down and shut up...:o)
