Welcome Spike

Hello everybody. This is my first post and I wanted to introduce Spike. He's our 10 week old puppy. Until now, we've only had cats. This is our first dog. We're quite overwhelmed. Click image for larger version

Hello and welcome! Spike is adorable, I understand being overwhelmed as Bentley is my first puppy too. It gets easier and they grow very, very, very quickly so take the time to enjoy the chaos when you can

Welcome to the forum. Spike is a handsome pup. They are a lot of work for the first year but then you get to reap the benefits. Keep the pictures of your boy coming.

Spike is a handsome boy. The first few weeks, as you all get used to one another, are both wonderful & hard. More than once, I wondered if we had made a mistake, & i know my husband did think we had made one. It had been four years since we had had a puppy, & we were so tired from less sleep, & not being able to just sit & relax in the evening, & getting up when it was dark & cold. And the chewing & the mouthing. But little by little it gets easier ....the late nights & early mornings become a way of life lol ....& it gets better. Daily training at home & attending puppy classes once he has had all his vaccinations, are all great things to do with your new puppy. I started clicker training with Loki at eight weeks old & it really is a fun time & a great bonding time too. Loki is now 17 weeks old & we cannot imagine life without him. It will be like that for you too.

It's unusually warm today, so I decided to grab my Kindle and take Spike out for some leisure time in the backyard. It was glorious! I was wearing a sweatshirt and still feeling warm, on December 2, in South Dakota. Spike was busy playing with a ball and rolling around in the grass. It was really fun, until I smelled something bad when Spike came over by me. What was that stuff all over his back thigh? Yep… he was rolling around in a pile of his own poop.

At least it was warm enough to use the garden hose to clean him up outside. LOL
