His Name is Rex, but...

I like to call him WORK!!, EXHAUSTING!! STINKY!! and so much FUN!!  My family received a special gift on Friday and we are so tired.  We have never had a dog and no one could have really expressed the amount of work involved in these early days of dealing with a puppy.

He is an 8 week old maltipoo (maltese/poodle mix) and the first night (Friday) was looooooong.  He whined and yelped all night.  He wet his crate and smelled awful.   After a bath, he was back to his cute self.  When we came home from church Sunday, he was an emotional mess.  He pooped and peed, and ate the poop, and walked in the poop.  So, I gave him another bath, and then he started to puke.  He was a wreck.  After much holding and loving, he recuperated and is now all over the place being a silly little puppy.  Althought it has only been a few days, he is doing very well with house training.  I'm proud and so very tired...

Everyone take care.  I hope to post again soon.
