I am so sorry I haven't gotten the October TWO post up. Life has been really hectic and this post will explain why. But I will post a picture some time this month and I WILL get back on track in November!!
A couple months ago, someone Jordan works with said his dog was getting ready to have puppies and that they were full-blooded boxers. This is Jordan's dream dog so he of course asked if we could buy one. On top of that, his friend Kenny was also getting a dog from the littler. About a month ago, we went over to look at them and pick out the one we wanted. They were still very little, only a couple weeks old. We picked the one we liked and we held him, cuddled him and took pictures before we left. Then, about 2 weeks ago, we got the call saying he was ready to be picked up. When we got him, he was covered in fleas and was shaking so bad. But he got used to us and after two intense flea baths, he was virtually flea free. He had to get his shots the next day and was wormed and given flea treatment. He is now 100% flea-free.
But we have had our fair share of puppy accidents. He slept upstairs with us the first few nights and because of the worm medicine, had a bad case of diarrhea. And there were many, many accidents. But he was doing really well with his potty training. That is, until it rained. He didn't like the wet grass outside and would never use the bathroom outside. He would always pee on the hardwood in the kitchen, which is better than peeing on the carpet but still, he's kept on doing it. And last night, he wanted to stay downstairs to sleep. I woke up to find 4 different diarrhea spots and 3 pee spots. So here's hoping he'll remember to pee outside instead of in here. Annndddd, here is a picture of him, our little Swarley. (we got the name from How I Met Your Mother)
