Run for my money


Its probably a good thing this puppy didnt go to a home yet.  I found some things out about him. I put him in the car yesterday to take to the vet. OMG, did he scream bloody murder.  I thought I was going to loose my mind. I even put a Kong with peanut butter in the crate with him. I know when I stopped at the stop lights people thought I was killing him. I couldnt even stop at a fast food place to get something to eat at the drive through he was screaming so much. He was fine in the vets office. It was a long wait because they were short a vet. He sat in my lap the whole time. He was so calm I even cut his nails while I was waiting.  But screamed all the way home. So I guess its car rides everyday for a while.  I took him this morning to drop some boxes of stuff at Goodwill and he only screamed until I got out of the subdivision , then he was quiet the rest of the time. So there is hope.  Yesterday I also put a collar on him. He didnt mind that but when I went to hold the collar so Guiness could come in the back door, Guiness hates the puppy, the puppy started screaming like I was choking him. So we have been playing lots of collar games.  He is getting better.   I just think he thinks he can do what ever he wants and when he cant he throws a temper tantrum. LOl  Silly puppy. 
A couple of days ago I turned on the sprinkler to water some drys spots on the lawn. The puppy started running through the sprinkler and biting the water. It was very cute.








He is still a great puppy but he needs to go to someone who has energy and wants to play. But he also needs rules.  Some dogs can just be dogs and you can let them be. But some need rules or they think they control the house. He just needs rules.  He is still very cute!!

I did get a note from the people who adopted the girl puppy. They are very happy. They said  the transition has been easier then the had thought it was going to be. That she lets them know when she had to use the bathroom so accidents have been minimal. And that she is sweet and smart. So Im so glad they picked her.

Strummer screamed in the car like that when I first got him (he was 8 months old). My 20 minute drive to work was a nightmare at first. Eventually he got over it though sometimes he'll whine every so often if he gets anxious for some reason (twisty, steep mountain roads, bumpy dirt roads, etc.). I think some dogs learn pretty quickly that they can get their way by being loud. Hopefully (probably) that's all it is rather than a true phobia.

Oh, this puppy reminds me of Chewy :) He needed rules too.

I would be thrilled to get a puppy who had already started potty training (who wouldn't)!

I think whoever adopts this little guy will owe you a lot for giving him such a good start. He sounds like a real character.
