Duke Update

So having a new puppy is a little like having a newborn in the house! We are constantly focused on when he eats, what he eats, when he pees, when he poops. We were up in the night to let him out, can't leave him alone for more than an hour, and worrying if every training decision we make is "right" or "really working!?" All in all, Duke has been a wonderful addition to the family.

If Matt is home, Duke is by his side. Maybe it's a male thing! And the girls just can't leave him alone. He's already learned to find his crate for naptime if he really wants to sleep. Molly affectionately calls him "Doo" and both girls giggle hysterically when he chases them around the yard. We are proud to say he now sleeps thru the night and hasn't had an accident inside in two days! So you can appreciate how little he is (for now) and how much the girls smother him, I wanted to share the following pictures.

Yes - that's Megan taking the puppy down the slide in our backyard. Good thing he's so tolerant...let's see her try it in 6 months when he's 80 lbs!
