My dog Sasha playing with sis’ pooch Carmela (video)

We’ve not seen a lot from Carmela the Wonder Dog, my sister’s yorkie-poo, of late.

Carmela is doing fine in Chicago at the ripe old age of 7 or so. Sasha, my yorkie-bichon (who’s 3 and a half), has been staying with my sister, and Carmela, while I’ve been in France. And my sister has been sending me video updates of how Sasha has been faring.


Sasha gets along great with Carmela – the two play all the time, which is just great. It’s good exercise for them – my sister has a big backyard – and it’s nice to just give them a chance to socialize with other dogs.

It’s also nice that they get along – Sasha is pretty easy-going, she gets along with my mom’s dog too. Though it’s certainly not every dog that she wants to play with.

Oh, and just fyi, Sasha is the apricot looking one, Carmela is more cream colored (with a silver back). As a puppy, Carmela was dark black and dark brown with some cream, but she changed.   Sasha as a puppy was dark apricot with black highlights and some cream.  Then Sasha went all cream with just a spot of apricot on her back, and now she’s turned super apricot again over her back.  I believe it’s the yorkie in them that can lead to color changes.  It’s a bit odd, but the color is nice.

Sasha, you might note in each video, is always aware of who’s around her, in this case my sister filming them.

Anyway, enjoy.

    You should tape your reunion with her!

    Obviously Sasha and her cousin, Carmela get along very well. Pretty soon Sasha will be asking you “Dad, when are you going to France again. I want to see my cousin, Carmela.”

  3. He’s 10lbs now and he’ll be 5 months on the 18th. He’s a mini so he should only get to about 20lbs. He’s a little rascal!!! :) Sasha is adorable. Japhy has a 1 year old Bichon he plays with and loves.

    Looks like a real charmer.

    As a child, I had a Pekingese. Whenever someone got a camera out, she would walk into the picture.

  8. And notice that every time Sasha catches on that she’s being filmed she stops. She’s an awfully observant dog.

  9. And I have to warn you Jim, the acquisition of a puppy will make you decidedly nicer for a few months. But the effects can wear off :-)

    Laughing. I love it when dogs figure out the cat pounce.

  11. Omg it’s a pile of fur!!!!i love doodles. How big is he?

  12. oops other file too large

  13. As a proud papa, I just have to share the recent addition to our family. Japhy, a 4.5 month old labradoodle.

    HA! Sasha has no respect for her elders :)

  15. I just get a kick out of the mix of slyness and innocence. My favorite is the “oh I’m on my back helpless and you’re attacking me, what WILL I do?” move.

    There are times like today when such cuteness and delight makes for perfect enjoyment. Thanks!
