It has been quite some time since I’ve made a post about our boy. A failing computer and an iPhone that had to go in for repairs made adding pictures and videos very difficult.
But it is now time for an update. He is now almost 9 months old and nearing 60 lbs. For the past few months he has had a problem with recurring diarrhea, but $600 in vet bills and a food change later, I think we have finally kicked the problem.
He now makes weekly trips to doggy day care. $20 for a full day and we get back a well exercised (read: exhausted) puppy. We have tried a couple, but so far PetSmart has the cleanest facility. I don’t like that they go potty inside, but they are closely watched and can’t get into anything. And given half a chance, our boy will lol. Just like a child he likes to put everything in his mouth!
Yesterday we went to a dog group that was celebrating 100 members. He made all kinds of new friends, and a couple of enemies in stupid pet parents. A bit of dog group etiquette: if our dogs are simply wrestling and no one is making a complaint, keep your hands OFF my dog or I will end you!!
Overall though, we all had a great time. Our friend Shawn brought his German shepherd/husky mix puppy and he had a ball too.
There are some great action shots, and you know your boy had a good play day when he NEEDS a bath when he gets home (literally crusted with slobber from a bouvier and a Bernese mountain dog). And then he slept for 5 hours straight lol.
