Puppy power

So my little guy must be feeling better he is playing for the first time, since he is so in love with my feet, they are the recipients of his very playful attacks. And he is learning quickly with the help of small bits of sausages (by the way they are called Russians here).

So far he is getting the understanding of coming when his name is called, although I don't quite think he has his name down yet, but he definitely knows I am calling him to come to him. He has learned how to stay, strangely, and he sits naturally when comes to my feet. So I don't think teaching him to sit will be hard.

He has actually pissed and shit outside when I have taken him out there on his own and even once went out on his own to piss on the porch. But he still does it in the kitchen area, which I punish him for but not when he does it in the bathroom. Unfortunately, it is his home when I am work, for the whole day, so it is also his toliet to, but he misses the bowl more than I do. But he is comfortable in their sleeping on my shirts, which he prefers then the sheet.

He really is some great company and a welcome addition, once he learns to shit outside, all should be good, although I am expecting to lock everything up once he starts chewing everything.
