There have been challenges too. Like potty training, chewing and running away from us outside. I have not been able to do enough training so he is still a little rough around the edges. I thought my husband was going to kill him or me the other day when he got out and took off to the neighbors. We live in a very rural area with creeks, wild animals, and loose neighbor dogs that won't hesitate to have him for a snack. My wonderful husband launched himself in the air and over a log to catch that tiny little rascal. He is surprisingly fast for such a little thing. I have to admit, that one more lap around the pasture and I was ready to leave him to his own devices. I realized I need to work out more so I can keep up with him. Yikes!
Landon always keeps things interesting and has to explore as much as Skipper. He thought he would try taking a nap in Skippers kennel. He barely fit.
The kids love to have him around to play with and snuggle up too. He loves to be with them and when they go outside without him he paces the house looking out at the window, not believing the betrayal of not taking him with them. He also gets VERY excited when we come home. He can hardly contain his excitement. His little tail just beats back and forth.
