Growing Up

Growth Comments Off on Growing Up

I am 3-and-a-half months old now and am growing and learning fast.
We haven’t had much time to write posts on my blog because my Mom is very busy with work and we’ve been having our garden sorted out, the fish pond cleaned and general home maintenance (including all the holes I’ve dug up and parts of the garden I’ve destroyed).

I went on a long walk in the forest with my big friend Ox. Ox still ignores me :-(
I’m sorry I don’t have much to tell you today, but not much has happened in the last 2 weeks. Hopefully I will have new things to tell you next week if we do some fun things this weekend.

Here is a new photo of me …

I’m a Big Boy now (almost)

I’m growing quickly and doing well. I am now 12.2 kgs which is dead right for my breed/age. I had more swimming lessons this week (so that I know what to do in case I ever fall into the pool). I’m not sure that I really like it that much. Still deciding whether its fun or not.

My “brother”, the Cat, is starting to accept that I’m here to stay. We are not friends yet (he is not interested in playing with me nor will he let me sniff him yet), but he will spend time in the same room with me now and actually sits quite close to me – as long as I don’t move around too fast he seems to be getting used to me. My family are very happy about that so I will try to be a good puppy and not bark at him or chase him!

I learnt some new commands this week. I can “roll over” (and show my cute tummy!) and turn to the side. I’m almost good at them. I love my walks with my Mom. Because I am a Rottweiler and still a puppy, we are only allowed to walk for 10 minutes or less at a time (so that I don’t hip displasia when I get older). Its lots of fun to walk with Mom. Lots of doggy smells and trees to sniff and barking dogs (that don’t scare me anymore!). Its been a fun few days. :)

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. :)

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.

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.
