Perry turned one on Monday. We've only had him 4 months, but I love him to death. He has some issues... the potty training is basically there - except for carpets (I had some small rugs in the living room that have been picked up because while he hasn't had an accident in over a month in the house - before that the only place he would have one was on the carpet - and I'm afraid to put them back down!)... and he growls, a lot, so working on trying to get him more comfortable with the things that make him growl (not trying to tell him to stop growling) so that he doesn't feel the need to growl at them - but it's hard because it's things like picking him up, petting a certain part of him, etc (for all of them - sometimes it's perfectly fine, other times it makes him growl so hard to figure out exactly what it is, other than in that specific time/ circumstance it makes him uneasy), but overall he's great (my husband doesn't agree - but we'll be working on that too).
Funny story - yesterday he had his kong out on the couch and after he went running around I couldn't find it (he loses his kong a lot), so I asked him where it was, he pretended to not have a clue what I was saying, so I went looking for it - got up, went outside to see if he'd left it there, then came back in and got down on my hands/ knees to look under the couch - at which point he jumped back up on the couch and, as I was looking under it, he dropped the kong on my head. I guess he had pushed it under one of the couch pillows (which is why I didn't see it on the couch) and 'found' it when I was looking for it! Who knows if he was deliberately giving it to me/ dropping it on my head (I had asked for it earlier) OR if he was just dropping it from the couch (which he loves to do!) but it really made me laugh.
