Its been 2 weeks since I did a puppy post .. shows how busy I have been looking after him and getting him settled in to his new routine. He is now 10 weeks old and growing up fast. When I look back at the old pictures of him its hard to believe that he used to be so small.
Having a puppy is just like having a baby except that they progress faster and learn quicker. He can now sit and lay on command, as well as fetch (he was fetching instinctively before we brought him home even). With the fetching he still isn’t brilliant at giving the toy back as he loves to play with his toys. He’s pretty toilet trained but does have an odd accident but that is our fault for not letting him out in time. He’s sleeping through the night… well between say midnight ish and 6.00 – 6.30am so I’m managing to get some sleep.
He’s has all his vaccinations now so on Monday he will be out and about wherever he likes. We have already been taking him to non-doggy areas, on the vets advice, so that he can socialise with lots of people and get used to his new environment and he has been getting on great. He spent most of the day in the office on Friday and was fine, so we’ll be having him with us most of the days in the office with plenty of people to play with and walks.
Here’s a few pictures from the last week or so..
Such a handsome boy
Playing with his favourite toys
Playing in the garden
Hiding in the grass
Lots of snoozing
He has really quickly become a special member of our family and he gives so much love back all the time. My favourite time is early in the morning whether its 5.30am or 6.30am … before everyone gets up so its just me and Cooper playing and training, and getting a really strong bond.
