Just wanted to let you know that we have been doing great. Teddy is such a confident, well behaved, sweet little fellow. All of the work that you and your family put into the puppies is evident. We are so grateful that you allowed us to have him. We went to the vet on Saturday and got a clean bill of health. The fecal came back today and was negative, so good news. We go back on 3/5 for his next set of vaccinations, and start puppy class on 3/6, so the timing is great. Everyone who meets him instantly falls in love. I brought him to the new house this weekend with the other dogs while we did work. He played for a little while, and then put himself in one of the dog beds and went to sleep. We are excited to watch him grow and learn.
Just wanted to give you an update. Teddy will be 12 weeks tomorrow. He is the most amazing puppy! We are so crazy about him. He fits into the pack beautifully. He is doing great in puppy class. We actually have a few weeks of private classes because the other puppies are a little older and so are starting in a few weeks. We are also going to pursue the AKC puppy star program.
Please find the attached pictures with Ray the Cat, Teddy, and Fiona the Pug.
Teddy earned his first obedience medal on his 5 month birthday – 5/22. It took a few weeks to be delivered, so he’s a little bigger now. He’s growing everyday, but doing great. You can also see him below squishing my poor cat. Ray is such a good sport.
Yesterday we took a 4 hour seminar on an intro to agility for puppies and beginners. We had a lot of fun, but Teddy fell asleep by the end. We have Canine Good Citizen classes starting next month. We are so proud of our wonderful boy! We can take him anywhere and he is so well-behaved. He has gone to the gardening section at Home Depot, and we have taken him to a lot of restaurants where we can eat outside with him. He’s loves to meet and watch everyone. The main behavioral problem that we are having is that he steals clothes. I have told him repeatedly that gentlemen don’t run around the house with ladies underwear! Hopefully he won’t do this when we have company!
All my best to everyone at Icewind,
