Thank you all so much. Whew...what a first day
We haven't spent so much time together as a family in a long time. Hanging out in my daughter (13) room playing with the pup....I'm shocked LOL
We named him Rocky. He is the biggest of the bunch.....get ready for this...19 lbs! Our breeder said he was the most mellow, calm, relaxed of the bunch. Like his daddy. We met the daddy (almost a month ago) and just knew it was the best pick for us.
Our breeder also said he was doing the best at potty training. Okay. That's a plus. But boy was the truth. I give credit to my hubby who had out every hour and he quickly took the grass and peed and pooped outside. We have the pads all over and in the pen. He wanted to play right now, last minute second wind...lol...and I had pads next to my closet. He peed on the pads. Then went back and pooped on the pads. Oh, when he first peed outside, we all watched holding our breath and then we all cheered & clapped. Scared the h*** out of him. So now we just say "good boy" and lots of attention...lol.
He is so observant. This may sound silly, but he searches our faces. Like "who are you?" If we carry him, he will pull his head back, sniff our face and then look at the hair and face.
My daughter has mirrored closet doors. When he went to her room he saw his reflection and I think he thought he saw his siblings. He got so excited and started jumping at the mirror and pawing it. His first two naps were by that mirror. Awww.
The only time he whimpered was when he couldn't find us in the kitchen.
When he plays, he will nip at my feet but will gently lick my face. He's sleeping on a little pup bed by me now, I'm ready to put him in his pen in my daughter's room. Oh, he peed on the pad in the pen too.
What a perfect day to pick Rocky up. My daughter is off the next week, I'm home, my two sons come home from college tomorrow.
What a great Thanksgiving we will have! He's so beautiful and precious!
My son comes home tomorrow and I'll have him show me how to post pics!
This is what my mom said to me tonight..."That's great honey. But just like Las Vegas, you can be a winner one night and the next night give it right back to the house." Yep, thanks mom...I'm aware of that
