I can hardly believe it but Kairo is now 13 weeks old! I know puppies grow fast, but it still is shocking to wake up some mornings & realize he has grown overnight! That is just plain weird :)
So what have I learned these past few weeks? Well, puppies are a LOT of work & definitely not for everyone… It takes a lot to train them & get things right…
I am proud of our little guy, since he hasn’t even started puppy classes & already we have house trained him plus I have taught him come, sit, down, stand, and shake (paws). Still there is far more to go & puppy class starts soon.
The best things I have learned though is that puppy daycare is totally worth it (for the socialization experience & giving everyone a small break). Also, the best puppy teething toy – a wet washcloth wrapped up & frozen. Who knew! (Although don’t try this if you don’t want your puppy to have a fascination with towels/terry cloth fabric. I decided it was worth it in our case :)
Other things I have learned… It is nearly impossible to get anything done with a young puppy around! :) Although it is also a lot of joy! Puppy snuggles are definitely one of life’s joys :) (And totally make up for needing to replace our kitchen baseboard moldings ;)
Oh & the last lesson, everyone loves a puppy :) Although I keep telling Kairo to soak it up now because when he is a 90 lb adult German Shepherd all those same people will be scared of him ;)
No photos, because well see the above comment about time :) I will try to get some up soon though :)
