Here are some photos of the little snow monster.


A good romp in the snow & a boy needs his beauty rest!

Here's a photo of Newt that was taken when his family took him hiking. It was his first time in the snow and he had a great time. We let him off his leash for a bit to play with another dog and enjoy the snow. He was having such a great time that he didn't want to put his leash back on. Our camera wasn't working right, so most of the photos didn't turn out.

He's pretty good at listening to us but he's pretty stubborn some days and won't even look at us. Teenagers!!!

 

I thought you might like an update on our not so little guy. Yesterday at the vet he weighed in at 23 lbs!! I was a bit surprised that he was that heavy already. He's now tall enough to reach the handle on the oven. It makes it more interesting making lunches and dinner with him trying to help. He's also lost 3 teeth so far. That means that the biting has gotten worse but it will soon be over. On the up side, our puppy class teacher gave me a really helpful idea.

We've been taking him for walks along the trails of Burnaby Mountain. Because it's set up as a mountain biking area, there are some training structures set up. Newt has been having fun going up the ramps and across the skinnies (it's actually a board about a foot wide that's elevated a bit). We also took him to the local park where he's discover the joy of the slide. I think he's a natural agility dog!! :~)  I've attached a photo of Frank and Newt enjoying the slide.

Our next door neighbours have taken a strong liking to Newt as well. They've become our evening puppy sitters. Tonight we went kayaking and he spent the evening playing with their 2 dogs and 3 teenagers. Every time one of the girls came into the room, he went running up to pee on their feet. He gets almost as excited to see them as he does us. If Newt ever goes missing, their house will be my first stop. They think he's just the greatest puppy ever. The dad gets upset if Newt doesn't say hi to him right away and Newt waits outside their house in the morning to see him before our morning walk. It's great to have such fantastic neighbours.

Stacey sent the above photo a few days after returning home with Newt...her comment was "Even our good camera can't keep up with the little speed demon!"

Overall he's been a great dog and people are really impressed with how smart he is.  He's also really calm and generally just lays down beside us when we stop to talk with the neighbours.  He sleeps a lot for a puppy but is doing great.  He has 2 sheltie friends next door, one of which is 3 months old.  Between the two of them, we're going to have to pour some cement to keep them in their own yards.  Newt has had a head start on the tunnel to their place and now he's got help digging from the other side.

He still has a thing for stealing socks and shoes. He doesn't destroy them but takes them for the attention. Sometimes we don't notice that he's been in our room and then we find all sorts of things outside. One day he even took the tv remote. He's a funny dog!!

Newt is a very sweet boy, the "studious" one of the group but a little speed demon when you get him going!
He loves to snuggle & gives the most wonderful kisses to people he likes...so far that's everyone he's met! :-)

"Baya if we stand real still, do you think we can jump'em both when they come over?"
