Petcretary and pawppy are dealing with a puppy who has to learn everything, including potty training…so now we are having a den full of gates and pens and crates. Sheesh…but some days we do not have accidents, and its only been a week, so hooray, we are on the right track. At first Benji found it difficult to *go* when he was taken outside, but with some treats and encouragement he’s doing much better. He is learning the come and sit commands too…soon we will add some others…like stay and lie down. We had to remove all the rawhide chews here, cause he just devours those. Yikes! And any doggy toys with items on them that can be removed are the victims of his teeth, too…so they had to be removed as well. Just like a human toddler…everything gets into his mouth…he sampled pawppy’s computer cord too…oopsie. Brought back memories of Minko…Dalton and Benji get along really well, sometimes they curl up in the open crate, or on a doggy bed, or they play tug of war. When outside the game of chase is fun, and so is I am going to steal your stick… They go on walks, and while Dalton is a great puller, and leaves plenty of pee-mails, Benji is calmer and walks nicely most of the time. He is frightened by loud traffic though, which is hard to avoid since some of our two mile hikes are along the highway in our village.
At the vet on Friday, he was loved on by all the staff, and he lapped it up! Dalton went along for the ride and social time and he too had fun there. A vet trip with no agenda for Dalton…Benji was declared a healthy if a wee bit ‘lean’ pup.
Pipo seems curious about this big galoot that ambles about, and ignores him, MOL! So maybe they might become friends…or at least be tolerant of each other the way MJF was with both kitties when he was a youngster.
Pipo still has the whole living room and pawppy’s office for his private use. So he can rest in peace away from the canine crazies, MOL! His eating an bathroom habit seemm unchanged, so we think he is not too stressed with our new addition.
