Eating and sleeping is what I do best!

Grandpa taught me how to shake a paw, I only do it if there's a treat for me in return though. Teehehe. I'm loving this shake a paw trick.

Mommy gave me my first bath in the sink. I cried like a kid without it's pacifier. Water is not my friend.

Mommy went out to eat lunch with daddy so I was very lonely at home. I cried and cried until I fell asleep waiting for them to go home. Eventhough my grandparents were home and they play with me constantly, it's not the same without mommy and daddy. I miss daddy at night since he goes home to his own home while I live with mommy and her parents and brother and sister.

Mommy says that I'm housebreaking very nicely. I still have to be taken out a few times during the night but mommy is doing a good job of doing that so I don't have accidents in the house.

I did have my first accident on the carpet downstairs, I took a pee pee when no one was looking....whoops....mommy was not mad at me since it was my first. But two hours later, I couldn't hold it in while I was playing in mommy's bedroom and peed in her carpet. Now that time she wasn't too happy because she found it a few hours later. I sorry mommy.

So here's how my day goes so far:

5 am, I'm wide awake, potty time....mommy puts me in the litter box and I do my business.
6 am, breakfast! I devour my IAMS puppy food in no less than 5 minutes, then it's potty time again, in the litter box we go again, I'm getting good at this litter box thing.
6:30 am, play time with mommy while everyone else is still sleeping....mommy loves me so much....woof woof.
7:30 am, potty break....usually by this time, it's sunny outside, mommy takes me outside in the back yard to go potty, sometimes I go and sometimes I want my litter box.
8:00 am, nap time for both mommy and I. I get to sleep on my new bed in the kitchen, not in that yucky crate.
10:00 am, snacky time....milkbones for sitting on command, potty time.
10:30 am, sleep time again
1:00 pm, lunch, again, I devour my's my favourite activity of the day you know, potty time
2:00 pm, nap time again
4:00 pm, potty break, then nap
6:00 pm, dinner....whoopeee!
7:00 pm, bed time for me, nighty night

I knew something was up the moment I woke up at 5 am, my usual time. Mommy hates waking up so early. Mommy actually didn't struggle to wake up like she usually does, so that meant something. Was I going somewhere??

Mommy scooped me up and put me in her "Manhatten Mutts" dog carrier and said, "It's time to see the vet". Aw shucks, I hate that place.

My vet visit was a success and Dr. Fuerth adored my sweet lil' did the technicians...they took turns holding me, which made me less scared. I weighed in at 3.2 pounds at 8 weeks old and all my limbs are great. Phew, does that mean no more vet visits for the year?? Whoops, spoke too soon, mommy scheduled me for my 2nd set of shots and then rabies shots in a few months. Awwww.

I learned to sit on command everytime. Mommy and daddy are so proud of me that they gave me a whole Milkbone treat...the soft ones of course, cuz they are the best!

Mommy's friends bought over their dog to play with me today. I've never seen this type of dog in my life, well, I've only seen pugs in my life so that would explain it. He's called a 'taco bell' dog, well, that's what daddy calls him. His name is Dim Sum, I think that means "small portions" in Chinese. I sniffed him out and he did the same, I wanted to play but he could cared less about me. But soon, Dim Sum gave in and ran around with me for a bit but then I think I tired him out. I'm a pretty hyper dog you know.

I couldn't sleep last night because I am so homesick. My new home isn't the same as the one on the ranch. Mommy put me in a crate in her room but I hated it. I kept whimpering, I needed someone to cuddle with not a stuffed bear. I kept mommy up all night, not only because of my whining, but I had to be taken outside for potty breaks every 2 hours. I was actually very good, I didn't have any accidents in my crate at all.

Mommy got tired of my crying and put me on her bed so I snuggled right in her neck. Ah ha, I knew she couldn't resist my sad puppy eyes.

The ride to my new home was scary. My mommy was kissing and holding me all the way while daddy drove but I wanted to see out the window and was squirming like crazy.

I was missing everything back at the ranch, my pug mommy, my pug daddy, my 3 pug sisters, the breeders and their many kids. I even missed the big horses that I was terrified of. I hope my new parents are as nice as everyone else back at the ranch.

After I got tired of squirming around, I cried silently in the cardboard bed my mommy made me. I could see mommy wanting to cry with me but holding back her tears as she stroked my head all the way home.
