Miles' Milestones...May 7, 2012 (11 weeks old)

Gotta brag on Miles. He's 11 weeks and is being a normal pup - rambunctious, inquisitive, and clumsy. Yet, he's learning fast the rules of the household. His mouthing is almost gone. He silently 'asks' to go to the bathroom already by standing at the back door and glancing at us. I'm thinking of getting the doorbells for him. Knows 'sit, down, stay, watch me, paw' and goes potty on command. We're socializing the heck out of him now. My daughters are a great help with Miles. Husband is in…

Today we started to officially 'master the walk'. Miles is doing very well, and so is my 12 y.o. daughter Julia.

Tod is vomitting and has diarrhea!

I am worried. Tod's been throwing up and having projectile diarrhea since morning. We did not change anything in his diet, nor routine. The only new thing: last night we gave him one Milk-Bone Dog Biscuit for the first time. Can that be it?

He's resting now in his crate...looking very tired and weak:(

Should we just let this thing run its course or do can we do something to help him?… Continue

Life with Tod. Day#5. More Freedom.

Today was the first day Tod spent most of the time off the leash inside the house. He was exploring more of the house, while I was following him being ready to correct any unwanted behavior. If the stop by any vertical object was too long I'd get his attention and redirect him. Tod knows his new name now and responds to 'come' command every time. Liver treats help a great deal with reinforcing positive actions.

He's gotten a little better with walking without pulling today. I took… Continue

Life with Tod. Day#4. Some Highlights

Tod continues to amaze us. He seems to be a submissive, sensitive, and willing to please boy. We keep him busy walking, training, playing. He still spends some time in the crate during the day for a nap or two. Sleeps all night long in the crate quietly.

During the day I tether him to me most of the time. He's sleeping tethered to me as I type now...and in such a cute position. It would be really easy to spoil this guy, but I have 2 kids and know better:)

As far as… Continue

Life with Tod. Day#3. First vet visit.

Annual Physical exam

Intestinal Parasite exam-negative

Heartworm test-negative

I was pleasantly surprised to find out that our adopted boy was in good health. Thank God! Neutering surgery is scheduled for next Monday. I didn't expect it to be this high though - $230. But it needs to be done. I am still ecstatic that Tod doesn't have any health problems.

Got a tablet of Sentinel. We'll give it to him after his evening meal. Now off to vacuum the house - in case he… Continue

Life with Tod. Day#2

We we expecting quite a lot of crying coming from Tod's crate during the night, but he surprised us. After we turned off the lights and went upstairs, he stayed downstairs in his crate. He whimpered for 2 minutes and that was it. In the morning (around 7 am) he was awake and just sat there. I took him outside right away, but he wanted to be petted before he relieved himself. He seems to be a very affectionate guy.

Tod spent 2.5 hours… Continue

Life with Tod. Day#1. Tod came home today!

We brought our adopted 10 months old corgi boy today. He is just they guy we hoped for. Monday is his vet's appointment to get neutered. Poor Tod. But 'you gotta do what you gotta do'....

He does have a serious flea problem. I think I counted around 20 fleas on him as we rode home! I did give him a Capstar tablet, but he still keeps chewing on himself:(

What was that I hear about DAWN soap? Is that supposed to kill fleas as well?

He tried lifting his leg to mark… Continue

Adopting our corgi boy this Sat. All input welcome!

We've been considering a second dog for a few months. Zeroed in on corgi breed, and a week ago made a step toward seeking out one. With the help of the local Rescue Agent we located our boy that's only 2.5h away from us.

We are very excited about the new addition to the family. We'll be picking him up this Saturday. Lots of homework has been done, but I am always soliciting valuable input.

About him…
