Puppy Love

So, many of you may be wondering, "How is Scout doing?"

Well, he's doing really well, actually! After about a week he started sleeping through the night in his crate, and the accidents have been minimal. Of course, that's probably because we don't give him much of an opportunity to have one! He went for his first swim last week, and really thought he was big now he has to jump in the pond every chance he gets. Haley has still not warmed up to him, but we are hopeful. She still sneaks around to get to her food dish and litter box and still hisses and growls at him if he gets too close, but he is not even a little afraid! He just stands there and looks at her like, "What's your deal?" She is also letting us know that she is really quite pissed off about this new puppy. She has been peeing in our closet, and this weekend do you know what she had the nerve to do????

She peed in my Birkenstocks! I couldn't even speak.

She WILL get over this, right?

So, we are doing well here, adjusting to this little canine being we've adopted. Sure, it's still a little stressful at times, but that's ok. Noah and Kendall both think he's just the coolest thing ever, and even Noah steps up with the discipline..."No! NO, 'COUT!" . We hear this a LOT. Or "C'mon, 'Cout! S'ok, Cout!" Kendall has been eating her breakfast and lunch out on the picnic table every day so she can be outside with him, and I think that is really sweet. They are all doing a great job!

Puppy classes are due to start next week...Fun, Fun, Fun!!!!
