Totally Off-Kilter!

We're so distracted here by all this cuteness.  It's a lot like having a new baby....we want to play with him and love on him all the time when he's awake (except for that awful tendency to bite everyone and everything!)...

...we have to work hard and get things, like schoolwork, done quickly, while he's asleep!

But, unlike a baby, he's constantly into mischief and won't stay where you put him, so someone has to watch him at all times, ready to run for the door when he squats!  Or just wakes from a nap.

I thought you'd get a kick out of the fact that I started to post on Saturday and didn't get very far, so I just posted that snippet this morning!  It's still the same problem.

I'm happy to report that:

Gus goes outside more than inside----but that's only due to our diligence.  I don't think he knows or cares what he's supposed to be doing!

Gus hasn't died from being in his kennel all night.  Last night we decided we had to be strong and live with no sleep if he was going to bark all night.  And he didn't!  (Bark, or die, that is)

Gus is putting on weight quickly!  When we took him back to get him microchipped on Saturday, his brother was still there, and the size difference was amazing.  Gus must have gained a pound during the week while Petey didn't seem to grow at all!

Gus is learning lots of things, like how to "come" and "sit", and how to walk on a leash.  He's also learning there are very few things he is allowed to chew on, but, again, I don't think he actually cares.  His favorite thinks are hands and the clothing we're wearing.

How long does this stage of chewing everything in sight last????  Half the house must be coated in Bitter Apple detterent, because I put my finger in my mouth last night and it was bitter from touching something!
