8 month pupdate

His voice hasn't completely changed yet and he still pees like a girl, but I've gone ahead and scheduled the appointment to have Luka neutered. The vet will keep him overnight one day in early March, so that's at least a few hours of peace I can look forward to.

Yes, the honeymoon is over.

;-)

He is such a clown; when I'm not completely annoyed with him I laugh until tears stream from my eyes. I have more bruises than I care to mention from his flying leaps into my lap. He gallops through the house like a horse in miniature or a bull in a china shop. He insists on getting a carrot anytime the bunnies do. He steals banana skins from the garbage can. He pokes his head in while I'm taking a shower. He follows me everywhere and leers at me with that damn ball in his mouth from behind every corner.

And he sleeps next to me and keeps me warm at night. And is happy to see me when I come home. And he drags me outside for walks. And he makes me laugh.

Mostly he's a good thing. Guess I'll have to keep him.

Hello Laura! What a handsome young man. I can just visualize him running through the house with big puppy ears flopping and then taking that flying leap onto your lap. Then rolling over to get a tummy rub. What a feeling to come home from a bad day at work to be greeted with first love, second fed me and third let's go for a walk or play with me.
The honeymoon maybe over, but your life with him has just begun. Lisa

It looks like his growth is catching up to his ears! What a beautiful boy. All critters are different, but no one loves like a dog loves.

If he wasn't making you crazy at 8 mos, there would be something seriously wrong with him. :) He's adorable though!

hate to laugh so hard - but I write with tears streaming from the laughing. Our tiny pooch is doing similar things - I threaten him with all sorts of dire things and he just grins back.

Aren't they great friends

I love him. He's what we all need, "damned balls and all". Without him, you wouldn't have bruises or scratches, but...

You would miss him. I think you are definitely smitten.

ahh...he is so sweet...he is still a baby, or a teenager in dog years I guess. I can just picture him with his ball. So cute.
