Puppy Training easier than we thought!

We've had alot of small dogs and there always seems to be an issue with potty training. No matter how long we trained and how many times we took them outside they still always went in the house. I was VERY hesitant when the idea of getting another puppy came up! Of course I have to be the main "taker outer" just because I am home all day.

Archie is doing VERY well. He is sleeping straight through the night without waking me up to go potty. We arent crate training him. He has his pen in the diningroom with his dog bed and papers, just in case. He will hold it all night and wake me up between 4:30 - 5:30am.

He will be 3 months old tomorrow and I think he is doing AWESOME! He goes in Friday for his 3rd round of shots. The 1st vet we took him to actually repeated what the breeder already gave him even after I showed him and the vet tech his shot records. They also weighed him, he was 3lbs 4oz.

I dont like this vet, at all. We take our cat and other dog Corona to a different vet. They actually clip their nails, check for fleas and go over all kinds of info with you. I had to use this one vet because the breeder we got him from only offered a 72 hr health guarantee and I needed to quick get him in.

So I switch him over to our regular vet, whom hell see on Friday.

He is such a sweet lil guy

Thank you to those who commented on my last post! I did check ebay and the ones I found and liked were just small pieces of quilt. I actually would like to find at least a double or queen. I was able to get in contact with Beth at Olde Tyme Marketplace, she has quite a few available so its just deciding on which one now.

Brenda a FB friend also emailed me and offered to check her local antique store for one so Im waiting to hear back from her:)

Ill get one, I just know it:)

This is my latest Folky Bun I made. She is VERY large and VERY heavy. She is aprox
51" long, that is ALOT of polyfil...let me tell ya!
She is made from an Angel And The Crow Primitives pattern, I did change her dress up a tad.

Ill be posting a few new offerings later this week. Im working on a few Jackie Schmidt patterns.

Have a wonderful WARM week...ugh, wasnt that Spring weather a teaser?
