Growing boy at 11 weeks

Chewy is doing great - up to 20 lbs. this week and learning very quickly. He goes to the door and sits when he needs to 'hurry' (LOVE that). He's already learned 'sit', 'down', 'wait', 'kennel', and 'out' (although not proficient, by any means). He loves crashing through the ferns and palms in the backyard and chasing Tiller around. A very independent and confident puppy!
Chewy had a great time playing with Princess, a Vizsla GDPIT.
His first visit to the Veterinarian - he was very good-only mildly interested in the cats.
He started wearing his Gentle Leader while eating this week. Nothing stops him from eating!
Not a big help while ironing! He didn't want to move once he was all settled in.

Welcome home, Chewy!

It has been a day of new experiences for this little boy - but, he's a very happy puppy, playful and good natured already. Aunt Phyllis and I picked him up at the airport & brought him home about 2 hours ago. He's had a bath, eaten a light lunch, played with his toys, 'hurried' outside (twice!), and now he's sound asleep in his crate.

Canine Companions for Independence, www.cci.org, has been wonderful and professional throughout the application process and placement of Chewy with us for puppy raising. I can't say enough about the friendly, experienced and supportive staff. We are really looking forward to raising Chewy!
