Wow it sounds like Charlie is doing just great! (Love his name by the way!).

If I could just give one small piece of advice it would be to not hand feed him... Of course he prefers it because he already loves his new mommy . But you don't want to let him train you to do that... It will get very tiring for you at mealtimes!

Can't wait to hear tons more stories and see more pictures!!

Welcome home Charlie!!!!!

My name is Melissa ...
Mom to Bailey & Burgundy and Auntie to Sadie & Buddy!

Love the update...made me laugh!! Oh the joys of puppyhood!! You will be fine and things will get easier. Sure he misses his brothers and sister, but he will adjust. I have noticed you must go to bed earlier now...we used to be on at the same time. It's ok...Charlie needs you to get your rest!!

Hi V
Those days sound a lot like mine. Abby hasn't had a problem with eating in fact she seems hungry all the time. Yes puppy's run a lot and they can be pretty fast. She will get through the crate issue's, its a pain but it doesn't take long. Enjoy Charlie and all of his cuteness he is a keeper for sure. Rest when you can, because you never know when the puppy is going to let you have a few minutes to yourself.

Mike

Aw, he sounds like he is doing a good job working his way into your heart. What a love.

But, um, I think we need more pictures....

Velinka, you are doing a wonderful job. With a warm heart as yours, you will never go wrong. Charlie is just now beginning to learn what a lucky boy he is, that you're his forever Mommy!

Welcome home Charlie!!!!!
He gets so excited when I take his food out barking and going around the table, than eats 10 seconds and goes back to play. I am sure Charlie knows about "slow grow plan" for goldens and decided to educate me.
I always wonder why people do not put pictures of their pups so often. Now I know, you have to live to believe. By the time I have a camera ready he is on the other end of backyard digging a hole thru the snow right into a dirt.

Sandy no late or early any more, I sleep when Charlie sleeps. I feel so bad there are many right now who have really hard time and I am too busy with Charlie to give any support. I keep them all in my prayers that's at least I can do.


Unfortunately with my skills I am not even close to capture the cuteness of Charlie.

He's a natural at being cute! I'm sure that he is growing into quite the Momma's Boy!
