The Honeymoon

Trapper has been with us for about a week and a half so far. He is sooooooooo good, and soooooooo cute, and soooooooo obedient.....I've been told it's the "honeymoon" phase. "Just wait, you'll see". Well so far, so good.

I went out of town for a couple of days this week so Larry had to be the chief puppy wrangler. He says they had some nice "bonding" time. I expected to come home to a messy house, and the place was spic and span, Trapper was glad to see me, and everyone seemed happy.

Trapper had his first vet visit, of which we were told he is going to be a 100 pounder!!!! His feet are huge. EVERYONE says so. But he was a trooper at the vet, and it was off to his first dinner. He was so good, it was like he had done this a hundred times before. He went under the table and laid down, peeking out to watch the feet of the wait staff. Of course, they would go to the other side of the room where they could see him under the table and point him out to the other staff.

He is a "toucher". Very content to sit beside you, as long as something is touching. He has mastered a few of his commands so far, including the potty training which is great.
