Clifford is 12 weeks old and weighs 25 pounds. He’s going to be a BIG dog!
Potty training is hard work. It takes patience, persistence and treats!
Unfortunately, it takes cooperation as well! Puppies are very much like toddlers in the way that they are curious about everything! Everything! Wires, hair, toilet paper, leaves…..everything. Clifford keeps me on my toes! He figured out how to use the cat door to get to his food!
I thought I had my house puppy- proofed pretty well! I guess I was wrong! Since he has been here, I’ve dug up several plants that are toxic to dogs, had to figure out a way to block cat door, hide electrical wires, throw out a gate he destroyed on day 1, chased him down to get leaves, socks, toilet paper out of his mouth. Whew!
I’m exhausted! But I’m smiling. He is a mischievous puppy that is full of love. My heart is full. I have a feeling he will give me a lot of adventures to write about.
Especially leash training! Lord give me strength! Be on the lookout for more -The Adventures of Clifford!
