Dexter at 11 weeks old

Now I am 11 and a half weeks old. I can sit, lie down, give my paw, stand, be gentle … all on command. Now I’m learning “touch”. I go on walks with my Mom (with my collar and lead) and I’m very good at it now. I wait at the curb to see if cars are coming, then we cross the road. My Mom says I’m very good. ūüôā

And I’m fully house trained now!

I’ve been sick this week and had to go on a special diet and have tablets. The tablets were really gross and I refused to take them unless my Mom crushed them and mixed them with liver spread. (I LOVE liver spread!). I’ve been very hungry all week because of this special diet food – i only get half my usual quantity. I decided to sort this out and acted like a real spoilt brat dog yesterday so they would feed me my normal food again. Yipee, today I got real food again!

I’m almost better.

My older brother (the Cat)

I forgot to tell you about my other house-mate. My Mom says he is my Older Brother and because he’s older I have to be respectful and nice (and all I want to do is chase him up a tree or down the passage!). He makes a strange hissing noise that I don’t like if I get to close to him and he does a lot of ordering my Mom around – yelling for food, yelling for water, yelling for attention.

He’s big (although I think I might be a bit bigger than him now) and white and soft and very fluffy. He doesn’t want to play with me, he just watches me or sleeps –¬†all the time. I wish he would come and play, we could have so much fun! Here is his photo – His name is Hercules.

9 and-a-half weeks old

I am nine and-a-halk weeks old now. I can sit on command, I get a bit more food (i like feeding times a LOT!), I am very good about going outside (almost house-trained), and I know what I’m allowed to play with and what I should “leave”. (I don’t always listed though – its fun to be a bit naughty).

My Mom took me to the Vet to introduce me and she was very proud because I was well behaved. She bought me new toys and I got to choose what I wanted – I slobbered all over a big, bright toy chicken with a bright yellow head, purple legs¬†and pink feet (now known as the “funky chicken”) and I chose a big soft toy bone than squeaks when i bite on it. When we got home I took the funky chicken and buried it in the garden so now its nice and dirty, just the way I like it!

Here are some photos of me taken at 9 and-a-half weeks old.

Dexter – 7 Weeks Old

That’s me at 7 weeks in my new home!
I have a great new bed (its very big because I am going to grow into a big, strong dog. I have lots of new toys and my Mommy is teaching me lots of new things (like how to sit, where to pee, how to walk on my lead … all too much to remember and I make¬†some mistakes). But she is very patient and I get yummy treats when I get things right.
