New trick...oops

Here's a trick I taught Skiver that I probably shouldn't have

I was going around trying to clean my house with pup in tow, changing out the trash bags in the bedrooms and bathrooms. I thought, hey, he can help, so I told him to grab the handle of the bag I just took out and showed him how to drag the trash to the kitchen where we took it out to the trash. He did such a good job!! Welllll....now he wants to drag every trash bag he sees, whether it's still in the trash can and needs to be taken out or not. (sigh).

Be careful what you teach these little guys, they are way too smart!!

LOL ! Ah yes .. I can just picture the wee one trying to 'help' you out, Mom!

One thing I read that really sticks with me and it's something I have to keep reminding family and visitors is - don't allow your cute pup to do something you wouldn't want him doing as an adult!

It is just SO tempting to let the 8, 10 or 15 week-old puppy chew your hair or nibble your fingers, sit on your lap while you have dinner or ride in the car w/o being tied down securely... among a ton of other things! Then all of a sudden, at 4, 6 or 12 months you decide 'Nope, you can't do those things anymore! Not allowed!' Ummmm..... uh.... poor little guy is totally confused! LOL

Anyway, it sure is sweet and adorable but you can nip this in the bud rather easily because Skiver is still so young AND smart!

Nice new avatar of Skiver That is truly good advice about not teaching them what we don't want them doing when they are adults. Good luck with the groomer - He's going to look so fluffy and cute when he's done! I have given Oreo baths personally and I love, I mean LOVE how soft and shiny he is after ward. He is getting more and more rambunctious so when I brush/comb, trim his nails/pads, I really have to do it in a "matter-of-fact" way. He is so funny afterwards though because he does his "run-like-hell" exercise right after

Cute, really cute. They are hilarious, they are so quiet during the combing, bath and dry, then all of a sudden is like this burst of energy, or all that they were calmly withholding for our sakes, and then "wham" the run-like-hell episode. Too funny, we have a blast
