He's been an absolute treat lately, really settling and now that he can go on walks he's a lot less manic in the house.

This was the aftermath of his first walk, he passed out for about an hour and a half, played for twenty minutes, then slept til I took him out again:



We're going for two 10-20 min walks a day, he loves it, I gauge how long he can keep going by how he reacts to stopping for a little bit, I'm fully prepared to carry him home if needs be, but these first few days he's working out some serious pent up energy so he'll likely slow down a little bit and level out until he's ready for more. There's a park 2 minutes up hill and so far he loves it and likes bouncing around in the grass Smile

We've got a curtain in the living room to keep out the draft but he hasn't worked out what it's for yet



He finally tore up the dead plant in a planter we have in the garden today, running into the living room and being chased back out immediately after:




Bit of oatmeal tropiclean in the washing up bowl cleaned that right off in a few seconds though (I tried wet wipes but the wipe went black and his paw remained as such, so I got the shampoo out) I saw oatmeal tropiclean recommended on here when I was researching and found it dead cheap in the pet section of a poundstretcher. See? Like nothing happened:



Took this one an hour ago because I was settling him in so I could watch a show haha



It blows my mind he's only been here 3 weeks, it feels like a lot longer, especially since he's literally doubled in size since we got him (well, since a few days before we got him, when he got weighed). I'll get a photo of him actually on his walk one of these days, I keep leaving my phone behind though haha.

It's amazing how fast they dig into your heart and wipe away any recollection of what life was like before them.

Been carried away by the flow of life with a puppy and guess what! It's snowed again!

Then (9 weeks):


Now (12.5 weeks):


Here's a few different photos from when he started going on walks:





Sometimes on the grass he stops for a roll around, so far he's not rolled in anything untoward


He had his first snow walk today but it was with my mum, unfortunately I was back at work for the first time after my puppy training holiday


That's actually a puddle, it's a puddle that's there all year round, in fact, it's a puddle that's been there since we moved here 10 years ago, because our Scotties used to wallow in it, so far Grif just drinks from it when it's not frozen


Few misc photos:
Sleepy puppy


This was taken before the walk he rolled on the grass in, he decided to show us he didn't want to go on a walk, but he ended up enjoying himself and meeting a few new dogs anyway.


He's finally figured out what the dirt in our garden is good for and is trying to uproot the washing line (good luck with that, it's cemented in) The great thing about our garden is he can only dig so far before he hits concrete, there's no diggable escape unless he's a super dog and can dig through 2 feet of dirt and the same amount of concrete. I go out and fill the holes after, so far he just likes that spot and the softer earth under the recycle wheelie bin.


Because I tend to lie in bed using my laptop, I found a new way to figure out if Grif is still under the bed, snapping a photo, this is my favourite one yet!


Gives new meaning to the term 'snow nose'


He's turning out to be such a lovely pup, we had a slight dominance issue (mostly in the way he tried to get me in particular to play) but we're working on that and it's gotten SO much better, he's an absolute angel with my nephew now and will leave him alone when he's not in the mood for a puppy, and when he's left alone he gets the run of the kitchen and hallway (so about 40ft end to end and 5 ft side to side) and so far he's only destroyed the dog bed under the stairs and an insole from a slipper, so now we just remove all footwear from his go-to zone. Most of the time he'll just faff about for a bit and then sleep til we get home.

He wants to play now so he's whining in the doorway Razz

Wow, he is growing fast! Is that a curtain he's hiding behind? I love the avatar picture!

Yeah we have a curtain for our front door because the draft gets through, he likes to lie on curtains, I think it's because when he first got here I'd usually have a blanket on my lap, so he'd lie on the edge that dangled on the floor.
And thank you! His smile is stunning! I like your pup's fluffy face Smile

He's cute's a button. Love your pics.


Just a note - probably should not be letting him drink from the puddle. Carries all sorts of invisible critters...

I don't know how they sleep with their heads over or against some of the objects that they do. My girl always uses a cross bar under the coffee table as a pillow and it just looks so uncomfortable.
