Your photos are like a little pet therapy for me right now. Thank you.

I am loving your updates and all the pics of him and Toby. My fave by far is the one with the tennis ball.

Aw, I'm sorry you're under the weather... I hope you get to feeling better soon. You can take photos from the couch, right ?

The fever broke this morning I think. The doc told me to check it in the evenings to make sure and until then don't go out in public and expose people. So I'm keeping his advice especially since it's so close to Christmas! He's got me on some strange OTC drug regimen that seems to be working oddly enough, though I have no idea what it's doing to my kidneys. I'm taking Aleve for the body aches and head aches, Mucinex to decrease congestion, Clairtan 24 hour in the a.m., Benadryl in the p.m. and supposedly sudafed a.m. and p.m. but I can't handle all that decongestant so I'm just taking it at night. I've never taken this many OTC things at once so it's a little strange. I'm drinking lots of water to flush my kidneys.

A new Yogi is emerging- Mr. Land Shark! Jaws in Golden Fur! We used the bitter apple for the first time this morning and it didn't deter our little guy!

We also weighed him and he's a whopping 9.5 lbs. He only gained 3 oz since we brought him home, but I consider it an accomplishment since he's really not interested in food. Go figure- I now have a food hog (Toby) and a non-food motivated puppy (Yogi).

I've also lost 10 lbs since bringing Yogi home, without really trying because we've been eating mostly take out! I guess the stress of getting a new puppy adjusted, the inability to eat with a puppy needing constant attention and the illness all contributed to a nice unexpected side benefit. Now I can enjoy the holiday treats a little more and not feel too guilty!

Bitter Yuck (available at pet stores) generally works better, it's pretty nasty stuff. But you need to "condition him" to it. You can do that with bitter apple, too, but a lot of dogs like the taste of bitter apple.
Take a cotton ball or similar, put some bitter yuck on it, and gently wipe some on the roof of his mouth while making a BIG deal out of how horrid it is. "Oh you poor puppy!!" etc. etc.
Every time he smells it, he will remember that incident....and will be a whole lot less likely to chew on something!

As soon as I'm cleared to get out in public I'll do that! Thanks!

Hope you're feeling better soon, that sounds like a lot of OTC meds myself, all that would knock me out for sure.
