Just back from a few days up north at my folks place and had to check in for my Yogi fix. He's so cute and good haul from Santa. Did you get any pictures of Yogi and Toby in the snow that we could see

No snow photos as we just got a dusting and it was frigidly cold for this poor Southern gal... I was too cold to concentrate on photos!! I'll try again if it snows again this winter, but I'm actually dreaming of 75 degrees and sunny days about now!

He's doing really well on potty training, especially downstairs. We are extra careful when we have him upstairs since he isn't allowed to go downstairs on his own just yet. Since he tells us he needs to go by crying in his crate, or by going to the back door, it's impossible for him to do that upstairs! I think we'd have this thing aced if we had a one level home!

Last night he went to the door too often, and being extra cautious I took him to his potty area several times when all he wanted to do was explore and eat melting snow and grab twigs/leaves/mulch, rocks and the like (yikes!). He is in the bitey stage and yesterday was not a good day for my body. He had a little "attitude" yesterday as well. It ended with him refusing to potty before bedtime.... I put him in his crate knowing I'd get a wake up call about 6 hours later, since it had been 2 hours since he had gone. Like an alarm clock he cried 6 hours later. At least he's becoming reliable in his overnight schedule!

Today is a better day and he's respecting my body a little more. He's just so cute but I will be very happy when his bite inhibition kicks in. He's starting to understand I hurt when I scream ouch!

Toby figured out that grabbing fuzzy bear Kong Wubba is an excellent way to diffuse the bitey bitey on him! Last night he'd grab it whenever Yogi pounced on him and engage him in several rounds of Kong Wubba tug. It was pretty cute to see because Yogi would get tired and Toby would let him rest, only to start up again when Yogi got his mojo back up! Toby now realizes he has a play mate. Yogi is getting stronger every day and is becoming a worthy opponent. I snapped a few photos and will download them later.

I hated Gunners biting stages! It will pass soon, thank DOG! Sounds like the potty training is coming along well.

Yogi

Your story about Yogi, reminded me of the puppy biting stages! I sure was glad when they stopped doing that.
Yogi IS SO PRECIOUS!

Here is a photo of Toby tugging with Yogi, and deflecting any bitey bitey Yogi had in mind at the moment. I think Toby enjoys his new playmate!



Here is Yogi in a pose I love:

Yogi had a few "therapy" visits today.

First, we took Yogi over to my parents for another visit, at their request. Yogi and my Dad continued their love affair and then he went to work and thoroughly charmed my Mom, who isn't enamored with dogs at all. He was very kind with her, putting his bitey bitey phase on the back burner, as if he knew their skin is too fragile for that. My Mom wanted to put him on leash and walk him around her house and he followed her lead beautifully! Here he is sitting and looking up at her:



My Mom is disappointed that he's growing! As we left she asked if we could keep on coming back with him at least once a week. I think she likes him, even if he's getting bigger!

We then visited some friends with a 15 year old son who is deathly afraid of dogs. Yogi was so tired and mellow that the teen felt comfortable petting him.

He also met a neighbor and his formerly aggressive small dog- all went well. Yogi is calm and unassuming around other dogs. He's only assertive with Toby!

We are in the 160s of people he's met since his gotcha day on Dec. 7. I'm confident he's well socialized with people.

We have big plans to meet Penny & Maggie's Mom 3 grand-daughters later this next week, and I hope to get him out and about for more impromptu visits. In addition we will be meeting some big dogs in the next two weeks.

Yogi is a gem. I love the play picture with Toby and what a good puppy sitting nicely at your mom's feet. You are doing a fantastic job having him meeting tons of people.
