Hope you and your husband are doing well....from the looks of the website, you have a lot of pups about to be born! Hope you're doing okay with Cocoa Peanut and Pebbles. Willow's pups are just so beautiful. While I have a few minutes as Teddy is resting, I wanted to write and let you know how our little guy is doing...
He did such a good job on the drive home, which felt soooo long. As soon as we got home, he peed on his potty pad and snuggled up in his crate. He LOVES his crate, by the way. Probably because Matt and I made it so cozy for him with your blanket, a fuzzy and soft bottom, and some soft toys for snuggling/chewing. The first night was hard, that's for sure...it was hard hearing him cry and I know he missed y'all. We were up with him several times throughout the night as he got used to us and us to him!
Matt stayed home with Teddy all this week and I think they bonded. I spent the mornings with Teddy, playing with him and making him breakfast and then, of course, relieved Matt in the afternoons when I got home. Now that school is officially over, it will be me and Teddy all summer!
He is getting used to his potty pads...we will transition him outside once he has his third round of the vaccination. Right now we keep the pad near the door, so he associates the front door with walks and potty time. He has spent a little time on our terrace, but he mostly just likes to explore out there. He hasn't gone potty out there yet. There are still some accidents, after all, but that's to be expected of course as he's just a little baby!
We took him to the vet on Thursday night for his first appointment with our vet and to get his second vaccination. The nurse and vet were very nice and he is weighing in now at 4 lbs, 5 oz. When they gave him the shot, he yelped (not because of the needle, but because the medicine was cold from being in the fridge) and when he yelped, Cherie, I started crying! Real tears! I hated hearing my lil guy so sad and me feeling so helpless. He reached out to me during and I snuggled him and I said, "Thank goodness that's over" and the nurse said, "No! We still have half of the medicine left!" It was hard for both me and Teddy, but I think I cried more. Ha!
We have introduced him to a few people and still waiting on more...everyone remarks on how beautiful and relaxed he is...he is truly such a mellow puppy. We just love him. Tomorrow I'm picking up a little pool for him for the terrace and the wearable front carrier I ordered is arriving tomorrow. I'm attaching a few photos of him.
