Marvin is home!
We got our little pup 2 days ago. I have been on the run ever since! I have to admit I didn't quite 'get' how busy I would be with him. But I am absolutely head over heals in love, and so is my 15 year old daughter. Even my husband seems to be taken with him. He is a frisky little guy though and my photos are all blurry - so I can't post a good one right now.
We have been spending our days in the yard saying 'potty' and 'poopy'. And, walking up and down the sidewalk receiving admiration from neighbors and anyone who walks by. The puppy socialization bit is no problem! But, I'm not getting much else done.
Potty training is a bit iffy - he is only 8.5 weeks. He's pretty good, really, but there have been just a few accidents. We're trying to go out, out, out as much as possible, and he has some newspaper in his pen as an option, which he has used. I love going out to water the plants and having him follow me around. What a little buddy! He is so proud of himself - he can already hop up to the first step of the porch steps. He seems to know his way around here already! The cutest thing is running and sayng 'pup pup pup' and having him run after me! I'm smitten. What a good little dog.
Is it normal that they poop like 5-6 times a day?? It's prolific. But, tiny. A little flick with the garden trowel and who knows where it went.
I will post photos as soon as he sits still long enough! Aw he's so cute!!
