10.5 week old Pablo has arrived. He's been with us for 1 week now. Very quickly we have come to realise that life here will never be the same again
1st night we learnt that Pablo can quite easily bark, howl and whimper for a solid 6 hours without a break. To say that day two was a blur is an understatement. The house was just full of zombies on tuesday of the human, feline and canine variety. 2nd night we learnt that if Pablo sounds like he has settled and gone to sleep this may not necessarily be the case, he could in reality have managed to escape out of his crate (thanks hubby for making sure it was not closed properly) and just be parading around the downstairs investigating all manner of interesting out of bounds areas!! 3rd night and beyond after a compromise of moving his bed out of the crate and into the kitchen we have discovered that Pablo actually does like to sleep at night and after about half an hour will settle down and sleep with his cuddly toys and the radio on for company.
So far we are learning to recognise when he needs a poo but we are just getting our heads around trying to see when he needs to wee but we'll get there.
Just can't wait till he gets his 2nd vaccinations and that we can start taking him out for walks.

He's gorgeous! My Phoebe is nearly 13 months and I have to say when I got her 11 months ago I didn't realise what hard work it is to have a puppy in the house. You have to be constantly aware of where she is and what she's doing, and if it goes quiet.....look out! But it's great fun and so rewarding to see them grow and develop. You have a lovely road ahead of you - enjoy it!
wht a cutie - sounds like a normal doodle puppy and luckily seems to be settling well Until you recognise the signs of an impending wee - take him out every half hour or so and stand with him giving your 'wee wee' command and when he's done it AND finished tell him good boy and treat. If he doesn't wee take him and and then out again after 10 mins and try again. They do get the hang of it quite quickly. You are in for soooooo much fun !! kathy
