I've had my puppy for five weeks, but he keeps me so busy I haven't had time to post his introduction! Casper is 14 weeks old and a complete cutie. I didn't get him for his looks, but sometimes I look at him and say, "wow, he's cute." He has a wonderful personality; we are so lucky. He loves people, especially children. He's afraid of nothing, but not overly
bold. He sleeps in his crate next to our bed from about 10-7 without complaint. We think he's going to be a couch potato when he grows up, but he'll also love to fetch.

Casper is a Rush Hill puppy from Chaos (Pedigree: BIS BISS Am GCH Rush Hill Run'n Amuck at Abelard OA, OAJ, AXP, AJP, NFP, WC, VCX (SDHF, OS)) and
Brie (Pedigree: Am CH Rushhill Carrera Dare to Stare). His parents are amazing dogs. My husband can just go on and on about Chaos, and we only spent an hour with them.

There were so many threads that I wanted to comment on, but didn't have time!

Biting and nipping? Only when he's hungry, tired, bored, or needs a potty break. So, most of the time. It is getting better, though. Finally.

Hanging from pant legs? This is his favorite outdoor game, especially if it's dark outside. Bitter apple is my best defense, so far. It's getting really, really old.

Favorite foods? Kibble, rocks, pebbles, sticks, roots, moss, grubs, slugs. See next question.

Round worms? Ewww. Yes. Well, hopefully not anymore.

When will the pup lift his leg? Ah, nine weeks. I do not know if this is a good thing.

Walking on lead? I think we had our first real walk in the last few days. That means he didn't drag me or run around in circles. He does stop - a lot. We still have to stop every day at the same old squished slug he tried to eat over a week ago.

That's all for now! Hopefully the pictures will show up.

thanks!

Thanks for the welcoming words! I would have replied last night, but Casper was a terror. We took him on a walk not realizing he was over tired. 20 minutes around the block - he had no idea I was on the other end of the leash. The few times he realized he was on leash, he though my husband was on the other end of the leash. So my husband decided to hang back, but then Casper thought he was a new person. Oh people! Wiggle! Pull! Sit! Wiggle! So frustrating. Then major nipping when we got home and he got put in the kitchen twice! I am so hoping for a quieter evening tonight.

I do quilt. Here's a picture of the bandana and crate pad I sewed for Casper for Halloween. He didn't really have an evil look on his face. I just happened to catch the white of his eyes and his nose always wrinkles up when he has something in his mouth.

He is soooo adorable! Good work on his accessories!

Here is a picture of the bandana quilt I made after we lost our Tess. I used a bunch of her bandanas for the top, and printed some of our favorite pictures of her on fabric on the back.

Wow, that is beautiful! I hadn't even thought to do that. I'm going to start saving his bandanas. Um, instead of cutting them up into scraps.
