Puppies are exhausting.

He's a genius, but he's also never ever tired. Not even after a 20 minute walk! Now, normally this would be okay, but Drex has recently come down with something, (fever, headache, vomiting) so I'm left with all the responsibility. It's like being a stay at home mom with a 7 year old and a baby. (I say 7 year old because Loosie is basically 7 in dog years). Nitro is very go go go, which is fine...except when I'm making breakfast and Drex is trying to sleep. Of course, he's just a puppy, and for being a puppy he is brilliant!

We've had him for just over 24 hours, and he knows his name, comes when called, has mastered the staircase, sits and waits to be fed, sits when putting his collar or leash on, (he knows the command sit), and pees whenever taken outside. Don't get me wrong we've had our fair share of accidents in the past 24+ hours, but he's used the potty patch and outside too, which is really good.

He's also a big chewer. I mean he will chew on anything! (including your back at 5am which Drex not so happily discovered).

We're taking him into the vet tomorrow so we'll see how he does :)
