My Little Puppy

Well, it's been a couple weeks since I reported on Boston. He's been very busy growing during that time. Need proof?

Remember this picture? It was taken on Christmas Day.

This picture was taken last night. 
In the first shot he weighed 6.5 pounds. At his weigh-in last week he was 27 pounds and the way he eats I'm sure he's closer to 30 by now.

Also, notice the ears. We met his mama and she is a lovely chocolate Lab. We were told that his daddy was an Australian Shepherd but we think his daddy is actually Dumbo the Elephant. Those ears are huge. The vet thinks mama had something going on with a hound dog and has revised his prediction about size. Originally Dr B thought Boston would become a small Lab but now he says that he'll be a BIG dog. That's ok with me. I like big dogs.

Boss does a great 'sit' and a very dramatic 'down'. He's food motivated but also wants desperately to please so training is much easier than with Mackey who doesn't care the least about pleasing anyone and thinks rules don't apply to her.

Here's a pic of baby Boston napping.

And here is big boy Boston.

I'm trying to keep up with blogging but as you can see I have a major distraction. Still Boston wants to show you what a good boy he is.

We'll be back really soon, We promise.

You are such a handsome boy, Boston, and we like the fact that you want to please.

For sure a cutie in both the Christmas and the newer shots. So cute!

You are starting to look like a proper dog.
