Guys! My teeny tiny little pup is getting soooo big! He has grown up so much since we picked him up at 5 weeks old. It completely blows me away!

Weight: Between 35 & 40 pounds

It's official. We don't have a medium sized dog. He is going to be large. Very large.

Height: Good Question

Ok, so I have no idea how tall he is, but when he stands on his back legs, his front paws can hit my waist.  Easily. He also has discovered that he can easily counter surf. So that's fun. We are learning new things to say no to him for every day!

Likes:

He is LOVING being at Grandma's house and playing with the dogs all the time. And when the back door is open and they can run inside or to the backyard whenever they want to! My mom's water fountain is a big hit too. The dogs all drink water out of the waterfall fountain and when it was getting cleaned, we actually had a problem with Fox refusing to drink water out of the bowl! He had such a dry nose until I sat down with him and a bowl of water and made him drink it! Then he realized he was really thirsty and drank the water! 

While he loves playing with the other two, he also loves having plenty of time alone with mommy and daddy! We took an hour and a half walk last night and he ate up every second of it! And sometimes will even come into our room sneekily so the other dogs don't follow him and cuddle on the bed with us.

Speaking of bed, Simeon and I bought a new fluffy, queen sized bed that he adores. It took a few days to talk him into willingly going to his crate at night to sleep since he just wanted to sleep on the bed!

Dislike:

Moving. He really, really hated when we were packing everything up and we were moving! I'm not looking forward to next month when we have to do it all over again and then end up in a completely new place! He is all confused on where home is and on our walk, he was trying to walk up to every porch and go inside. He was just so confused! It then didn't help that because he has gotten so big, he needed all new stuff!

We originally got things thinking that he would only be up to 40 pounds. But no. So he has gotten a new crate, new collar, and new bed, but isn't 100% ready to give up the old stuff yet. He also has a new bowl, one of those "fun" bowls to make them eat slower. He hates it. He can't always get the food out and needs help at the end of his bowl. But he has learned to slow down! he had to eat out of a regular bowl today and still chewed his food! Which is amazing considering he used to just inhale it!
