More Work Than A Toddler
He's more work than having a toddler in the house because he is quick. He's lightening fast and grabs anything he can get a hold of to run with it. He hopes that I will chase him but I calmly walk over and relieve him of the object instead. As I am writing this, Buddy just grabbed the bottom of a curtain and yanked half of the curtain rod off of the wall! I spend the day keeping him out of trouble or placing him in "puppy jail". In this case, I place him in jail. That's what we call the several hundred square feet that we cordoned off in the kitchen and houses his kennel. We put up two metal baby gates to make a safe area for him and it looks like he is in jail when sitting behind the metal gate.
Buddy has now been with us two and a half weeks. He has learned to sit and lie down as long as kibble is involved! He can also play fetch quite well. I didn't have to teach him. It was already a part of his genetic make up. You see, Buddy is a mixed breed and Labrador Retriever is definitely part of the mix. I see many a slobbery tennis ball in his future as he spends part of each day retrieving. Well, it's time for me to go screw that curtain rod back in the wall! Thanks for stopping by today. Leave a comment and tell me what toy is the most favorite of your dog. providing you have a dog. Buddy loves his Kong moose and Kong gator stuffed animals. More toys are ordered and on their way. Soon his eight toys will become ten!
