Kennel training

Today I turn 9 weeks old! I'm starting to get use to my kennel now at night. I cry a little now but if I'm really tired it doesn't take me long to fall asleep. I have only had one accident in my kennel so far and momma and dad say I am doing really well with potty training. My problem is with being left alone in the kennel. I guess most puppies do this and it just takes time for me to accept it. I'm a work in progress but, I'm darn cute.

I'm home

Woof! I made it to my new home yesterday. It was a long ride but I slept for most of it. I got to visit my cousin Diesel on the way, he is a really big rottweiler/mastiff mix and I absolutely loved playing with him. He let me have a few of his cookies and play with his new Christmas toys. When I got to Diesel's house I had a bath in the sink and my nails were clipped. Diesel's house was like a spa, I didn't mind it at all. At Diesel's house I did my first poopy and pee, my new momma and daddy were proud. I got to meet my Uncle R, Uncle S, Uncle K, and Aunt D yesterday. I also got to meet Grammy & Grampy. Grammy never really liked dogs a lot, but she loves me! I made sure to curl up in her lap and cuddle with her.

Last night was my first night in my new home. When I got home I already had a message on the answering machine for me. It was my Uncle T telling me "this message is for Tucker, welcome home buddy." My whole family loves me already! I had my dinner, played with my new toys, met my kitty brothers and sister, and sniffed a lot.

I was very good in my kennel last night. I cried at first, but then I settled down and slept until this morning. I didn't make any messes in my kennel last night.

Today I have been getting use to my new home. I think I already know "come." My name is Tucker, but I'm starting to think it may also be "No". I had a couple piddle accidents today, but all other business I made sure to do outside. I even learned to walk up the three steps to go inside the house. It's raining outside and I get cold very easily, so now I am curled up in momma's blanket taking a nap. I think I'm going to be a very spoiled puppy. :)
