Smile Our new canine son!

Hi Everyone,
I too have been on the site for months now but have yet to post until now. We just got our little boy, Chewy, and are so in love with him!
I want to say thank you to everyone that posts their experiences on this site. The information has been incredibly helpful!

Chewy is my first dog ever and John's first as an adult. I have surprised even myself with how much I love this little guy. My sister said if she didn't know any better she would think I gave birth to him! John and I actually do refer to him as "our canine son."

I am happy to report that Chewy is adjusting well. John and I both work outside the home, but found the most amazing dog walker (recommendation from a friend) to come play with him twice a day. (We live in Manhattan so if anyone is looking for someone, she really is terrific.) I also go home during lunch to play with him so he is never home more than 2 hours by himself. The barking is improving and we are only at day 5 so I am hopeful. He really seems to be getting the hang of things and I think is starting to realize that we do come home!

Looking forward to sharing Chewy's adventures!

Pics coming soon!

Erin

The forum's link for sizing photos works well. I used it a couple of times.

TTFN,
Pam

Erin,

Welcome and I can't wait to see photos of Chewy. You can use the site to size photos or, if you use a PC, Irfanview or Photoscape work very well as photo editors.

It sounds as if you're off to a great start with your little guy. BTW, love the name and I should have called Ruby that.

HI Erin and

We (dh and I) call Gucci our canine daughter, too,lol..we don't have any kids together, but we do have a dog together And she seems to get her best traits from me and her bad habits from my DH........

Sounds like you've got it all under control, this forum was a wealth of information to me too. I probably couldn't have survived w/o it

If you need more help with pictures, it may be resizing it,...some use shrinkpictures.com or your computer can do it for you, depending on what you use.
Can't wait to see them

Kara

Thanks to everyone for their help! Here are pics. The breeder gave Chewy the stuffed rat as part of our new parent care package. I find it really funny since we live in NYC...very appropriate!

Would love to meet up with Butterscotch. We live on the UWS. I am assuming I can email you directly through this site...just need to figure out how...
