OK, I know I will become one of those people that go on about their dog! I will try not to. But...
I am astounded at the energy of Zac, despite him being a tiny puppy. He also has teeth that easily break the skin. I hope he doesn't get a taste for blood.
We are currently trying to get him used to being alone, as he will need to be spend time on his own for hours on end when we are both out working. And, until he is toilet trained at least, he is spending the nights in his bed in the kitchen. He cries and howls through the night which is very upsetting but it's the only sensible way forward. On the second morning I went downstairs to see to him and he was in his bed whimpering to himself. It was possibly one of the saddest and most upsetting things I have ever seen! How silly is that?! I actually had tears in my eyes as he woke and went crazy with happiness on seeing me. I really don't know what came over me but it makes me emotional just thinking about it!
I have lived with dogs before, but this is all new for me - real responsibility and routine! I simply don't want to see him upset, stressed, lonely or unhappy and will have to get used to being tough sometimes I suppose.
To end on... remember, dogs have owners, cats have servants.
