Attila the Tiny Terror

It's been less than one week since we brought the world's cutest puppy home to live with us and all I can say is "what have we done!!!!!" I really do think we named him wrong and in future he will be known as Atilla. I'm just joking of course but I can't get over the upheaval he has made in our lives. My living room has a mini Berlin Wall running through it to separate him from the 2 cats who also live here though I haven't seen one of them since Attila moved in. The wall also keeps the pup from going up and downstairs.
My flower garden in the backyard looks like a herd of elephants ran through it even though we bought a little fence to keep it safe. Who knew that Atilla would be so small he could fit right through it? I spend most of the day worrying if he's eating enough and the rest of the time wondering when what he's eaten will work its way out and if I'll read his signals in time. Tell me we will survive!

He is our first dog. Here is a picture of the tiny (5.5 pounds) terror himself.

Yes, we need pictures of the little monster

You almost made me spit milk onto my computer when I read about the Berlin wall. We still have one in our house but only use it when we leave so we can contain THEM. Have you heard they multiply?

Anyway, life will settle down but it will never be the same. You have been blessed by one of God's greatest animal. Enjoy briefly before you post his pic.

He's adorable. Most of us have gone through a brief 'what have i done!' phase. It's the reason puppies are so darn cute. A couple of things that help - take some puppy kindergarten classes and long walks to wear the little guy out.

I second both these suggestions. Tired puppies behave better and puppy kindergarten will help you learn how to handle your little Atilla! BTW, he is very cute!

Our Aussie is named Nessie after the Loch Ness Monster. She has at times lived up to her namesake.

TTFN,
Pam
