Thursday, June 5, 2008

Wow - has it really been two weeks? Where has the time gone? Dudley is doing well at housebreaking - only an accident once every 4-5 days or so. It's always our fault for missing his whining sign.

He is up to 28.2 lbs already - he gained 10 pounds in 2 weeks! He is enjoying his new pool and playing with his brother Luger. He has been to Cruise Night and the Memorial Day Parade! He enjoys meeting new people and dogs! He starts Puppy Preschool on Saturday, June 7th followed by 8 weeks of obedience starting July 7th (right after vacation).

Wednesday, May 21, 2008 Update

Well, it's been quite the 2 weeks! No sleep, the Runs, bland diet, oh my... We have survived though and are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

Dudley has gained 5 pounds and is weighing in at 18.5 pounds. He should be a bit more but because he's been on rice/beef & chicken for 2 weeks, well you just don't gain as fast. Here are some updated photos taken today, May 21, 2008:

We will be working on crate training next weekend when hopefully, he will be on regular dog food (Ok, prescription dog food but not rice!). He has been sleeping through the night pretty well lately so let's hope that continues.

Luger has started playing with Dudley! That is a step that we've been looking forward to. The cats still hate him though!

May 8th, 2008

Dudley is getting very comfortable living here! He is doing well at housebreaking as long as we take him out often (read: every second). Here are some updated photos: see how he has grown?

He weighed in at a hefty 13 pounds 3 oz on Tuesday, May 6th but should gain about 5 pounds a week for the next few months.

Notice his paw is the size of the palm of my hand! He is going to be a big boy!

Doctor Albert has given him a super clear bill of health - he found nothing wrong at all - his heart was clear, his hips, elbows and knees are excellent too!

Check back often for more updates!

Dudley's Home!

Our trip went well and here are a few photos to get started:

Almost two weeks left!

Well, we leave to pick up Dudley in two weeks! I have some toys, dish, bedding, crate and treats ready for him. The only thing I don't have ready is Luger, the 9 year old GSD! Let's just say, I am a little worried about Luger's sanity after Dudley comes home. :) The cats, Frisco (3), Kadek (4) and Jiko (1) will get over it soon enough. Monty could care less.

Here's a photo of Jiko (our Balinese nightmare)!

We're learning as much as we can about Newfie care and grooming! Sometimes I am a little worried that I got in over my head, but then I think nah! I (we) can do this!

Hopefully, the next time I post, I can share our first photo of Dudley!
Hope you keep reading!!!!
