There are smiles and gushes and laughter and blushes in Dallas. He's just adorable.

Thanks Everyone! We think he's really special. Yogi seems to possess an old soul. He already got major work in yesterday as a therapy dog when I was hit with a fast onset of a flu-related illness. I went to the doc for flu test, because I couldn't believe I had gotten it despite a flu shot. Apparently the entire waiting area was packed with people with the same symptoms, all testing negative for the flu. It's one of those viral things that mimics flu symptoms with high fever, total body aches, chills, etc. So Yogi spent some time napping with me and also giving me lots of kisses. Hubby took over on potty duties and other puppy duties. I missed his first zoomie, which is very disappointing, but I hope I'll see another one soon.

As far as potty training, it's going pretty well. Hubby built a potty platform, with astroturf, that is barricaded with mesh so he's all business while in it with no distractions. He took to it immediately, as if he knew what it was about. We weren't sure he'd understand so I took the pooper scooper and put it in there with him and a minute later we had success. It's handy to have in those middle of the night excursions when you really don't feel like being on guard to get stones, twigs, leaves and other things out of his mouth.

I hope to enjoy him more today. He's already helped me load some laundry and he tried to help me load up the dishwasher too!

So sorry to hear of your illness. Appreciate you dragging yourself up and giving us our daily Yogi fix!!!.......if only there were pictures.......but we will give you a pass for a few days since you are under the weather.

It sounds like you are doing a great job socializing him and preparing him for therapy work. It seems you are well on your way to creating the calmest one ever no matter what he is presented with.

I am taking notes for if/when we get a puppy again....we should have done this more with Belle and did not....but the next one will be modeled after Yogi's socialization schedule.

You are doing a great job with Yogi. Now, take a little break, if you can, and allow yourself to heal. I love reading your posts about your Yogi bear.
Hoping big brother, Toby is learning to love the little one too!

I was hoping for a report on you and Yogi this morning. Hope you feel better real soon. I'm sure Yogi will be a good nursemate. Take care Anne...
