We are pround to announce that we now have a new family member. Gizmo was born on 11/28/2010 and joined our family on 2/11/2011. He is almost 12 weeks old now and what a stud he is. Loves to jump off the stairs, give kisses and bounce around. Oh yeah, he also loves to poop everywhere on the floor
I guess we will get that under control as time passes.
Last night, we gave him his first shower. Poor guy was scared to death even though we tried our best to console him. However, he loved the blow dryer part
We are all getting used to him. He is the first dog we have ever had so we are trying lots of new things. We already trained him to sit and jump.
I have to say, I had my reservations when my wife and son said that they want a dog for Valentines day. However, within a week, I am the first one to say that I love him.
A few questions...
1. We were told to feed him twice a day. However, he hardly eats anything in the morning. He eats a big meal in the evening though. Are we feeding him too much? He is on dry meal by the way.
2. I am not planning to show him. Should I bother registering him with AKC? I have his paperwork in order.
3. Shots. He has already gotten VG and Bordatella. He is scheduled for next round on March 5th. Our vet said that the next round will cost approximately $210. Any reputable but reasonable vet in DFW area?
4. Fill us in with anything we must watch out for in his first few months. Although I will read through this forum but would like to know important things to look out for.
Overall, we are enjoying the darling of the house. My son does not watch TV 24/7 anymore and my wife and I love to cuddle up with him at nights (until he pees on the bed
I have put some pictures. He is too active for me to take a good picture but I promise that I will post more as we get some good shots.
