Back at the scanning studio to get some training tips.


Is this my trailer?

Are there ants in here?


I'm going up


Checking out the stump



Going for a ride


Not what it looks like baby tamanduas ride around on mom's back. Stewie was either feeling lazy or insecure and wanted to ride Pua. Considering they are the same size she wasn't thrilled but didn't do much to stop him.

I tried walking them together because he wanted to follow her out of the crate.

Pick me up mom


There's an anteater on your back


Tail Hug


Training to stay on a mark


Yummy Orange pulp


Will stay for food


Foam at the Mouth good


I thought maybe it had something to do with the soap with claw marks in it but he just does that when food it good.

Pua nad Stewie act in a movie

So what's this about Canada? Well Pua was discovered by the head Trainer for DR Doolittle 4, a strait to DVD release. Best guess about a year from now so watch for it in stores. Stewie came along in the mean time while everything got worked out so he came along as stand in when Pua wasn't up to it.

They did good on the ride up but we were delayed at the USDA and then at the border so they did wind up peeing in their crate. We parked in the commercial lot as we needed to see US F&W and then the Canadian ag vet to look at them. Then no one gave me a ticked to get out of the lot so made the mistake of driving back to cross the regular traffic boarder and the guy kept me there longer just because he could, ugh, he said I was lucky since it was a $5,000 fine to enter the US illegally. I'm not so sure that really counts if they had forced me to go to court over it. He just felt like delaying me further.

So we finally got to the hotel room and I let them out in the bathroom with a bowl of food. Stewie dug right in Pua had to be coaxed out and hugged awhile first then they were both fine and settled into a wild play fight to blow off steam.


Zombie anteaters attack



Tamandua Death Grip




About to fling himself at her


Time out


The hotel said we couldn't have them loose in the room so they were caged if someone had to come while they were there

Let's keep playing


The soon threw us out anyway claiming we smelled to bad. Wonder how many smelly humans they throw out? I worked hard with cleaners ect to be sure there was no smell or food left in the bathroom. The maid just didn't like us. It kept coming back to "the maid was concerned you have the do not disturb sign up" ect. Oh well the next place was tons better and they loved Pua and Stewie and no complaints.

I smell grapes in here


He was after the cheese

I took a picture 6/05

Of Stewie sipping his food politely making NO mess tonight, lol.

It's a mirricle

Stewie sipped 2/3s of that full container and didn't make a mess.

Not sure if it's the square feeder or he was just that hungry to not play around. He has been claw feeding since but not spilt a bowl yet. He spilt FIVE last night with the round pink feeder. I'm hoping he can't get a grip with the square system and no more spilling. He will pick up a full container and toss it to see if there is something better under it, grrr

The went to they vet and got their helth cert so good practice riding around all day for tomarrow to Canada.
