Come to find out my cute adorable (big) puppy has been pretty sick for three weeks now! I will not go into detail cause it is gross, but he got another shot, and now has antibiotics, special food, and a pro biotic powder to put on his food.. I am completely amazed at how normal he's been acting with how sick he's been. I am a *little* worried that when he starts feeling better, and digestion isn't an issue he's going to start putting on more than 5lbs a week... and have a higher energy level. I may die. haha
Either way.. here's a progression of his growth so far!
|8 1/2 wks|
|9 1/2 wks|
And, if you notice, a good portion of the pictures he's sitting or laying on my lap.. That is my life, but we have officially run out of space on my lap for him to fit, so he spills over onto the floor mostly now, which he's not a fan of.
He still throws fits when he doesn't get his way, and usually that's when he is not allowed to bite my hand when we play, not being able to climb onto the couch with me to cuddle, and having to "be gentle" and not paw at me.
We still have occasional bathroom mishaps.. but he knows every time he does it that he's in trouble cause he slinks around in circles as he pees.. then bolts for the door and rings the bell. lol
Currently, he eats about 7 (measured) cups of food a day spread out between 2-3 feedings.
The commands he knows:
Bring it here,
Give it to me,
The commands we're working on:
By my side,
(Give me) Space,
All the way to the Grass,
But of course, all of these commands he often will look at me, then decide not to listen... It's lovely.
He is a ton of work.. and pretty expensive.. but I love having him around :)
