My First Week with My New Family

Mitch has been with us for one whole week and mom says he's come such a long way!
He has his peepee and poopoo accidents in the house but for the most part, does most of his business outside! We think this is HUGE considering that he spent 2 whole months in a crate at the pet store. Mom says this picture tells it all!

We're both in the same room and happy - for the moment! Mitch did find my favoritest Mr. Carrot toy (well,one of them) but I am being super sweet to him today and sharing!

Isn't this the perfect photo of a happy puppy?! He's a lot of work for mom and such a pain at times but he's so much fun and so curious and really smart! And mom told me to say all of this good stuff about him. What I really want to say is that I wish all of his teeth would fall out so he stops biting me! *wink*

Mitch met Hoover for the first time today.

I still need to teach him the ropes concerning this mean machine!
Mitch was more fascinated with how fast the cord retracted into Hoover's butt and how much aire was farted into his face from Hoov's back end! We'll get there! A little bit more time is needed!

Dad comes home from Maine today. He's been gone since Wednesday and I REALLY missed him! He's going to be so surprised at how much Mitch has changed in these last few days! I can't wait! Hurry dad!

Till next time.............

Love ya lots,

Maggie

Hugs from Billy Boo:)

Ruby Cupcake said...

Maggie, You have the best patience ever! I hope you get lots of extra treats:)
Mitch really does have long legs. Are they that size to begin with and the body just grows over them?

Mitch is such a little cutie pie, I'm glad to hear that you're teaching him well! He's lucky to have such an understanding older sister...

Oh, Maggie, I totally want an Aire brother or sister, now. I think Mitch is sooo cute! But, no...no more dogs right now. Oh, well.

I'm so happy that you like him a little more each day! I bet you'll have the bestest time playing outside this spring!

P.S. Where is Maine was your daddy? My uncle lives in Wells and although I haven't been there, my mom goes up once in awhile. It's a long trip - especially driving! Mom says it takes somewhere around 26 hours. Yikes!

Hey Maggie,
Mitch looks so comfy & happy laying in his bed. You are so nice to share your Mr. Carrot with him too. He looks like he is really enjoying it. You didn't show us an after grooming photo of yourself. How come? We went to Dairy Queen this afternoon & guess what we saw walking down a sidewalk with some hoomans? An enormous AIREDALE! He was huge! Papa couldn't believe how big he was. We wonder how big Mitch will be when he grows up???
Hope you have fun with your Papa when he gets home!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Hey Maggie,
Sorry we were logged in as Toto when we posted our comment. Mama is helping Auntie C set up a blog for Toto. We'll let you know when he starts blogging.

Lillie Valentine said...

You are so good with Mitch. He is luckky to have you and your family. I think i have tried some of the things that he has done- like the baby gate. BUT my mom never thought of ousing two. Love ya! Lillie V

Rudy said...

Oh wow, my Mom says Mitch is really cute! I'm just afraid my Mom will get us a new puppy someday and my life as King will be in jeopardy...

Nugget said...

Hi Maggie, It was so nice of you to share Mr. Carrot! Keep up the good work sharing. The picture of Mitch in his bed is sooo cute.

We don't have a Hoover beast here. We have the Evil Dyson and three different Orecks. I know how to turn the Oreck cannister one off. I think it's funny. Mom doesn't. And here I thought she had a sense of humor!
Luv,
Dave
PS: Your Mitch is looking very cute!
PPS: We have a Big, Mean Kitty toy like your mailman - only it's just for one-on-one play with Mom. Otherwise, we'd eat the whole thing. :) Woo. We'll have to post a picture of it for you!

We hope your dad comes back real soon. We are sure that he misses you as much as you do.

Btw, Mitch looks very happy. He must be since you are so nice to him.

Love
