OMg that stinks! I told the Breeder that Bentley must have his serious of three Parvo lepto vaccines or I Would not be taking him. thankfully he had them when he was with her. I also refused to sign or hand over money till I saw his vaccination records just to be sure. I was so paranoid about parvo!
See If Bentley was to get sick and not make it, I am at the point where I Would throw in the towel on dogs forever and stick to being a cat owner. But I really would like to see this through, and see what this reward people always talk about is. See if I can understand whey so many people have dogs and enjoy having them. I think it must be good after you get past the puppy phase. I am so curious. It gets a little bit better each week we have him. I am not totally comfortable with owning a puppy yet but I am sure as the months go by it will get to a point where I Feel at home again in my house when Bentley is here with us. (right now I am at home when he is in his crate, and anxious about him the whole time he is out of his crate lol)
Bentley has not had an accident in the house in 6 days.. 7 tomorrow. I am so proud of him! He is such a smart pup! Our new system is working great. (this is with the exception of the explosive runs sunday morning by the back door, he tried so hard, he knew where to go, he just couldn't hold it, so totally not anything anyone could have done about it) Today he even has started running over to the door and sniffing the bottom of it when he needs to go out, now If I can just get him to ring the bells I have we will have a system down pat!
Someone told me to get piddle pads and train him that way too, so that he can just use that in bad weather.. is that actually a good idea? or not?
