There's a Puppy in the House..or is it a Bear or a Gremlin???
Hi Everyone, I've been very busy...I got a new puppy last Wednesday night. His is a Bichon/Shihtzu.
His name is, "Buddy"...and he is such a Sweetie! His house training is well under way....but don't leave your shirt on the floor or he may surprise you with a little piddle.
I'm crate training him and he loves his little Kennel. He has begun to hide his toys and goodies is there...and if I say potty (we are going outside now) and he doesn't have to go....he runs like a little demon into his Kennel. Which is all right, cause he doesn't allow any bathroom habits in there.
Last night he slept from 11:30 to 7:00 AM. without needing to go to the bathroom....he will whine in his Kennel if he needs to go and before this, it was a couple times during the night. I hope he keeps this up...cause I sure enjoyed the sleep.
He's already learned to sit and down. Still working on stay and come. We go for a few short walks a day with his leash and halter. He is doing very well ....it takes him a little while to warm up though. I'm hoping the weather holds out so we can get the walking down pat for the winter. He looks soooo cold even though he has a ton of hair.
Now I want to show you his playmates......our Wonderful Grand-doggies... Harlee and Wynter are my oldest daughter Trina's fur-children...Trina and her husband live 3 hours away...Buddy hasn't met them yet but will soon. ... Harley - American Eskimo/Lab.....isn't she Beautiful??
Wynter - American Eskimo/Pug....She loves food and attention.....in that order please.
Last but definitely not the least ....another new addition to the family...our daughter Kim's (who lives a 1/2 hr drive away) new puppy, "Buster".....Maltese/Shihtzu. He reminds me of a fluffy cuddly pyjama pillow...and look at that nose....don't you just want to, "honk" it???...lol. Buddy has met him and thinks he's pretty neat.
On Thanksgiving Harley, Wynter and Buster were visiting here. On Christmas there will be 4 dogs here altogether.......What a Blast!!
I hope I didn't bore anyone too much with my large doggy post... I am just so proud of all of them.
I am hoping to get back into stamping soon .......but it may be a little bit yet.
Thank you all so much for all your wonderful comments.......it just totally makes my day!!!
Take Care!! Have a Great Day!!
