Little pooped-out pups can really sleep up a storm, but when they are ready to get up, they are UP!  We went out at 10:30 last night to pee before bed (well, Ozzie peed outside, I waited till we came back in).  I think he was out before his head hit the pillow, he was so tired.  Vince usually sleeps by my side and came up to find the puppy.  He was quite perturbed.  He did sniff around a bit, then went down to sleep at the end of the bed.  Junior even came and joined Vince, apparently unaware of Ozzie.  When Ozzie awoke at 4:10 a.m. and began to whine a bit, I turned on the light and Junior was one stunned kitty!  We went outside and went pee again, then back to sleep.  Just before the alarm went off at six, I felt someone nibbling at my ear.  So, up we got and went outside for a really good poop!  (Aren’t you excited that we’re talking about puppy bodily functions?  But, this IS exciting stuff — especially when it’s done in the proper place).  There was no going back to sleep, so we put the leash on and went for a walk up the street.  We met a neighbor who was out watering her flowers, then we continued on.  Six whole blocks, and he still pretty much stays right at the side of my foot while we walk.  There were a few leaves that were major attractants, and a puddle of water (which we did NOT drink out of).  We came home, had breakfast (and mom got the coffee going) and then chased the kitties about the house, chewed on the computer power supply until mom replaced it with a kong, and now we’re passed out with our head on the bunny while mom types.  

So far, an excellent puppy experience.  I think Vince is on the verge of playing with Ozzie.  He has rolled on his back and flailed his paws in Ozzie’s general vicinity, so I think the idea that this could be fun has entered his mind.  That is, when Ozzie wakes up!

Again, I apologize for the poor picture quality.  The new camera should be here tomorrow!Asleep

  1. Ozzie is such a lovely pup Linda, by the sounds of things. Good to see bodily functions are taking place at the appropriate times in the appropriate places. Abby is 8 months old now and is such a pleasure to have around. It has been 14 years since my late Kira was a puppy and I forgot a lot of how much fun and love is involved with a new puppy. I am very happy for you.

    Michael is doing really well now – we are both just back from his morning walk and now he gets to follow me around the grocery store. He can’t drive or lift more than 2kg in each hand so he really is at my mercy now. Haha. Thanks for following up on his progress and your nice comments. Michael was in tears reading all of them the other day.
    Take care.
