Puppy Update

15 Dec

Remember when I wrote this post and had great plans to write puppy updates every week?

Turns out that didn’t happen. Oops.

Charlie is now 5 1/2 months old and I have had him for 18 weeks. We just completed his first puppy class and he has mastered sit, stay, down, shake, high five and touch.

After a rough first two months something suddenly clicked around 3 months and Charlie got the hang of the whole potty training thing. He still has an occasional accident if we leave him out for too long- or if hes in a new house but for the most part he is doing really well.

We are finally done with all his puppy vaccinations and but Chuck has managed to keep us going back. Last week he developed a skin infection (no idea how) that required a vet visit, antibiotics, and medicated shampoo. This week he managed to hurt his tail to the point where he won’t sit down without crying. Luckily its getting better but he has been sooooo whiney this week.

Overall I feel like Charlie is a pretty good pup. He drives me crazy some times but hes a little love bug too. There is nothing better then snuggling up on the couch with him. Well until he starts whining and jumps off 5 minutes later…
