Today we went off to our local Kennelgate pet store – Zeus has outgrown his puppy collar! We popped him into our friend’s baby Husky Harness and he sat in the back seat with his “seat belt” on…
The ladies at the store haven’t seen Zeus since we got him that first day, so they were surprised at how much he’s grown. They said he’s a lot longer, and just as wriggly! We chose him a 20″ Ancol adjustable collar and spotted an Ancol Combat dog lead in Camo colours! That’s absolutely perfect for him, specially for when we go fishing!!
He’s getting big, strong and very shiny. I’m so proud of his progress. Apart from the odd accident in the playpen, he’s fully house-trained, goes to the door to ask to go out and does his business exactly where he should.
He seems to have learnt these basics, like sitting and giving a paw for his dinner and occasional treats, very quickly indeed. I think watching Flake has helped enormously too – I’ve never had a pup at the same time as an adult dog, so I wasn’t expecting this level of progress! Bonus!
I feel rubbish at the moment – got the social virus cold and cough that’s going round and can’t seem to shake it…. Never mind, eventually it’ll pass!
