I'm going for truth-in-advertising on the blog post title...you know in case anyone hates cute puppies and doesn't care to hear about mine.
We are having an awesome time with the puppy...as you can clearly see. He can actually sleep through the night. He even does his business in the yard almost as soon as he goes outside. With our last dog it took 30 minutes or so per potty break to get him to realize what to do because he had been started on papers. This dog has used a dog door all his life and lemme tell ya...it makes a world of difference!
The son in the top picture goes into cute overload just like me. Randomly I hear "mom WE GOT THE CUTEST PUPPY IN THE WORLD!!!."
I am not deceived, though. I can tell there is going to be a mischievous side. He doesn't think I know there is a giant twig in his mouth here. As if.
He really likes shoes and I've had to spray bitters over our shoes. The upside is that the child with cool light up spiderman shoes has a huge confidence boost because the dog is showing a huge interest in his shoes him.
He knows that I don't allow children to touch the inside of a dog crate...and thus the dog crate is a welcome respite from the craziness. I think I could use a crate, too!
