Truman is home!

Truman has been with us 1 1/2 weeks. First night was rough, but since then he sleeps awesome (in crate next to our bed). He gets up once a night and sometimes not at all. He has times of cuddle and other times is super feisty. Does great in the xpen (in the family room) whenever we cannot have both eyes on him. We are having a great time so far (after those first few days of figuring out a routine for everything)!

One question: his muzzle is getting quite brown/red which I think is dirt? Or saliva stain? I'm not sure. He does great with a bath but I worried about shampooing near his mouth. Any suggestions?

I will try to attach a photo of our sleeping baby

What a cutie pie! Don't worry about shampooing around the mouth. I just use tear free product on Molly's head and face in case some gets near her eyes. You can try filtering his drinking water in case the staining is due to minerals. Sometimes they can stain more with certain foods too. My bichon always did when i fed her anything with beef in it.
