Growing like a weed

Yes, he has changed a lot in the 2 months and 6 days he has been here.  He is getting his adult teeth, and those razors are coming out.   I finally held him down and trimmed his dew claws as he manages to hook them in my arms, and they sure hurt.

He has lost his pot belly. 
He will eat almost anything, doesn't like raw carrots, but will eat lettuce, pears, peaches, and almost anything else.  
He will be going to see the vet next week, to be 'tutored' as a friend said, said he didn't want his dog to know what was really going to take place.

Potty Training 101

Being consistant is the key, and I have tried but of course with my physical issues, there are days that it is tough.  He is doing pretty well, most of the time he goes outside so it is good.  

On the other hand, Buddy the weenie dog has an attitude,  you know the regular dog one, it is there, pith on it and walk away.  I've been told that weenies are bad at this, and I sure am glad that CH hasn't followed his example.

Copperhead again

Yes, he is still here and it has almost been two months.  He has decided that his job at night is to be right in front of our bedroom door and make sure nothing gets us.  He sleeps pretty much all night right in that spot, and if we get up he does look to make sure we are not going far.  He understands the word NO, but isn't fond of it and lets us know he thinks he is the boss.  He is very strong willed, but has learned the harness and the leash are his friends, with them, he can go out into the big wide world with dad and smell all the strange things that are not in his fenced world.  When he comes back from the walk, he wants inside the fence, before he comes into the house
I was warned, when we got him, that Siberian Huskies are difficult, they take lots of time, to train.  
Funny, but our nephew got one just about the same time we did, but his is full husky.   I'm thinking I might call him and check on his progress, because from what he said when I did talk to him, made me think that I'm glad mine is only half.

6 weeks later

His name is Copperhead, lol, he likes to bite.  He caught his first rabbit today, didn't know there was any in the yard, and when I called he would not come to me.  So I went around looking for him, and he was busy, he said.

He has been here 42 days and he is changing daily, losing that puppy look, and belly.  He doesn't mind getting out  of our sight, but we are supposed to be where he left us when he comes back.    I think he is about 4 1/2
months old, and getting his permanent teeth.

Copper Update!

He has gotten over his shyness, and loves to grab the hem of my dress or gown and pull it.   I even got a belly rub in, last night.
He has a big personality, and now will even follow Buddyboo outside, and can go up and down the steps.  He is doing his jobs outside for the most part,  so he is learning quickly.
Here all 3 are in the middle of the floor.  Buddyboo is 14 so getting a bit cranky at times, with Copper.  The cat says as long as he doesn't pull his tail and eat his food, he is fine with him.

COPPER

Our new baby has a name.  Copper, because of his coloring.  He has had his first shots, and is a lot happier than he was on Monday when we got him.  He'd never been away from mom or his 5 siblings, and then the mean old woman who took him, got him jabbed with a needle first thing.  But he likes being in the house, and we are working on getting him potty trained.

He met 2 of our grandchildren yesterday.  Skylar just couldn't stand it that she hadn't seen him, so I drove over and picked her up, and we stopped at the store and got some toys and puppy food.  She insisted he needed a bath, so I let her bathe both him and Buddyboo. (Never turn down free help)  Then Stephen called, he was getting off work early, and wanted to come over and see our new family member.  Stephen started playing with him, and he flipped over on his back for a belly rub, when he will barely let me hold him. lol, but he will learn who butters his bread soon enough.   He has finally gotten to where he doesn't have to hide to sleep, he and Buddyboo
are stretched out facing each other, snoozing away.  Prettyboy, the cat, has finally quit hissing, and helps him eat his food.

New Baby

In early January, we lost our 12 year old lab mix, Flash, his story is on here. We missed having a larger dog, and Buddyboo the Weenie dog doesn't bark when people come in yard. I'd been looking for the right one to come along, and today, hubby heard an ad on the local trading time show, lady had 6 puppies that needed homes. I called and we drove out to look at them. Mother is a Husky or Husky mix, she was beautiful. There were 3 black, and 3 golds, their dad is a neighbor's dog. Anyway, I got the darker of the 3 golds, a male. He rode home without a whimper, but when we put him on the ground, he hid. Finally got him out from under the truck, and brought him in, and fed him. He had never been in a house, so he isn't sure what it is all about. He liked in the fenced yard. We haven't named him yet, will wait and see what his personality is, before doing that.
