& the last 2 that came into the house weren't really puppies. Bruno was almost 3 & totally potty trained. Zoe was about 6 months, they figured (we found her stranded & snow covered... pitiful)
So its been 12 years since we've had a puppy... I mean, PUPPYYYYY in the house.
Why did God make them so sharp?
|Shark Week has nothing on this|
Animal Planet needs Puppy Week!!!!
We've already lost a dozen pair of socks... 3 pairs of shoes because the shoe laces are gnawed off... one of my favorite t-shirts has a hole where a puppy tooth jabbed through it when Harvey grabbed it & pulled while I was trying to put it on.
And back to the world of potty training.
He's actually getting it down decently ... it helps when dogs have other dogs to watch...
Let me start again - we THOUGHT he was getting it down decently.
I was 15 minutes late getting to work because I was cleaning up spot after spot after spot. The problem is, once Harvey squats, I scream NO!!!!!
|I even do a head shake with the scream|
He freaks out & takes off running... all the while running while peeing.
Hey, that would make a race a total mess if people did that... (there probably are people that do that in a race)
Off topic... anyways...
He's a nervous pee'er ... you yell, he pees.... you yell about the pee, he's going to pee more.
You can't say, "Don't pee pee" in a easy voice & not get your point across...
|yeah... that would work GREAT.. I can tell...|
Oh man... I forgot about these puppy days...
But I also know they will pass. Harvey will be growing up quickly. We'll train him & he'll learn. It takes time & patience.
It took time for Sydney to learn... it took time for Buffy to learn...
Buffy's life went by so fast...
So when I think about going through this puppy stage, I know its frustrating, but I know time goes by fast...
& it makes me want to try to cling to patience so I can enjoy the other things that comes with the puppy stages.
The timid that makes him want to run to only me or Ricky for protection
That soft fluffy hair they have
Those cute little legs
That curiosity of learning everything new ..... A bug? What's that? The vacuum? It sounds like the devil!
The puppy snuggles... is there anything better in the world?
So here we go again...
Good thing he's cute...
Any new puppy advice that I should know?
Any new tricks or advice on potty training?
Anyone just craving puppy snuggles now?
