This pup and I are building a foundation right now. Lots of biting, lots of tug-o-war, lots of sleeping. This week we started 1 mile walk in the mornings. He gets excited to see new people and runs towards them with enthusiasm. He doesn't like to walk the entire mile and paws and yelps for me to pick him up when he is tired. He weighs about 17 pounds right now. I love holding him, but he doesn't like to sit still for too long. He's been a fun spot in our lives and gives us something to take care of. It has been fun for us. So far, I feel incredibly lucky.
