14 weeks - happy puppy!

Chewy is at 29 lbs. this week and just got his next to last booster vaccine.
Chewy started Puppy Kindergarten this week - Holland and Aunt Phyllis come with us. They are both doing really well. We are all (puppies, too) going to the CCI SER campus on Thursday this week for a tour.
He still fits in the toy drawer, but not for long!
We call this puppy TV. He loves to lie on the kitchen floor and watch our cockatoo, Biski, play on the floor of the bird room - great entertainment! We have started using the tie down and have been on neighborhood walks, which he loves, and we're working on stairs (which he doesn't love!). He's learning to walk on a loose leash and doing really well. We had company for Thanksgiving and lots of noises (blender/food processor/mixer) and nothing bothered him.

On a different note, I have received word that Duchess, my last puppy raised, has passed her medicals and her first 'report card' indicated she is on target in her guide dog training. You GO, Duchess! :)

Twelve weeks and 26 lbs.!

One of several play dates at Aunt Phyllis' - playing with retired GD, Bert.

Chewy loves to get close to Tiller.

He's learned to ride quietly in the car.

Playing with CCI puppy Holland II (2 weeks younger) at Aunt Phyllis' (again!) - she might be half his size, but she makes up for it in personality and self confidence!
