Got this update for Rocco a week ago. He is from Ernest and Blottie's litter of ten pups.
I imagine it is now very quiet with all the puppies gone . I hope you are all well and enjoying a bit more free time after all your hard work with the puppies.
Just a short email to let you know how Rocco is doing. He settled in very quickly. The vet commented how quiet he was. He isn’t quiet all the time!!
He has just starting putting himself in his crate at bedtimes. He has slept all night for the last week.
His housetraining went well from the start with just an odd accident some days. He is quite laid back and independent. He has a couple of manic times during the day, when he runs around the house and garden.
He enjoys a game of tug of war. He can solve his puppy puzzle to get the treat. He loves to play with a bit of recycling. When it’s not too cold he goes in the puppy sling and we go out for a walk, which he seems to enjoy: his nose twitches with all the smells. He has also learnt how to go upstairs given half a chance. He is booked in for some dog training in a couple of weeks.
A couple of update pictures taken today at 10 weeks.
It’s is really lovely having a dog again and Rocco is a good companion. Lots of fun to come.

“Humans are aware of very little, it seems to me, the artificial brainy side of life, the worries and bills and the mechanisms of jobs, the doltish psychologies we've placed over our lives like a stencil. A dog keeps his life simple and unadorned.” Brad Watson, Last Days of the Dog-Men: Stories
