First Trip to the Vets

Today was a very exciting day for me. I got to go to the Vets!
That means I got to do all kinds of fun things. 

Dad and I drove to work with Mom and I got to pee at her office! Imagine how exciting that is... Then we went home and played a little until it was time to go.

I met Tara when we got there, she said I was cute and was really nice.

Next I got to meet Jan. She had a lot of great information for Dad and let me run and play. She checked my weight and I weigh 7.5 lbs., whatever that means, but she did say I would be doubling my weight in just a few weeks. 

I heard blah, blah, blah, worms, blah blah, blah, fleas, blah, blah, blah, ticks, blah, blah, blah, heart worms, but I know Dad was listening so I just kept playing. I did here that ticks carry diseases like ehrlichiosisLyme diseaseanaplasmosis and others. Dad helped me with the hyperlink-thingies if you wanted to know more.

Next I got to meet Dr. LaForte. Well I got to meet her again, because she and Dr. Kearney were at the Homeward Bound adoption place when I met my new Mom and Dad. They even knew my doggie Mom. Well Dr. Laforte was awful sweet and nice to me and I can’t wait to see them again in about a month.

She did tell me it would be fine to have a puppy play date with my cousin Ty. I can’t wait to bite his face and run and play!

Ty's face

All these new people and activities have worn me out, now that I have discovered sunny spots, I think I’ll have a nap…

Puppy Time

I'm sure glad I rested so much during the day before Mom got home. I was so excited to see her, I had lots of energy to jump and play and lick.

Warp drive puppy!

I was such a good boy, I let Mom and Dad eat their food, even though theirs smelled better than mine. I ate my dinner, went out to go potty and fell asleep on Mom.

I guess I'm fitting into my new family. Dad says I get to visit someone called a "Vet" tomorrow, I hope he likes to play!

Monday with Dad

What an exciting day. I got to spend all day with Dad in his office. He told me I was the best puppy ever!

I'm not sure what all the fuss was about all I did was eat, play, and sleep. Every time I woke up Dad took me outside where I peed and pooped.

I really loved sleeping in my crate today. Anytime I was tired (like 100 times!) I would crawl in and lay on my soft blanket. Sometimes I even found a snack in there. This crate thing is getting fun. Even my best friend Mr. Moose slept with me. 

I can't wait till Mommy gets home, I'm going to me all rested up!

Hello, I'm Ben

Hello, my name is Ben, my new Mommy sometimes calls me Benjamin, but that is generally when I get really excited. 

I came to my new home this weekend after a long drive where we heading up to Homeward Bound Dog Rescue with my 6 siblings and my 6 adopted siblings!  You see... when my Mom was rescued, she was rescued with another Momma... but that Momma didn't make it, so my Mom adopted her puppies,and then my Mom had 13 puppies! My doggy Mom is a really gentle and sweet dog, and I think I take after her!

I was asleep when my new Mommy and Dad first saw me, but I was told they get really excited when they saw me. A man who took one of my brothers home handed my exhausted limp body to my Mom and she couldn't let me go.

So now I'm learning all kind of new things! Chewing on only "my" toys and not Mom and Dad was first. I know where I eat and where I should sleep. Mom and Dad also want me to pee and poop outside but it is so cold my little body just locks right up, but I am using the wee-wee pads, so that is something.

Another exciting thing I learned was to climb stairs! That is fun, but my little clumsy puppy muscles make every stair an adventure so Mom and dad watch me really close. (They don't know it yet, but I'll be running up them by the end of the week!)

I would like to write more now, but I have to chew my toys for 10 more minutes before I collapse and take a nap....
