Today's Otis update -
Otis hasn't had an accident in the house for many days now (I can't remember when the last one
was, maybe three or four days ago). Sometimes he even is smart enough to whine at the front
door when he has to go out to potty.
He is sitting on my lap as I write this email, doing his best not to fall asleep. I am enjoying this phase until he is soon to be too big to sleep on my lap like this!
One of our favorite things about him are his crazy cute yawns (usually 4 or 5) when he wakes up, and the fact that after napping he just wants to cuddle with you as he slowly wakes up.
When one of us comes home from an outing, his tail starts wagging like crazy when he recognizes that a family member has returned home. So cute.
He and our Labrador, Maple, are starting to play more each day. He hasn't learned to
play very well without barking though, so he often gets a timeout in his crate during playtime sessions.
He is now looking size-wise about 2/3 the size of our lab, but my guess would be he is
about thirty pounds or so (Our Lab is 70 lbs.).
He and the cat are not best buddies yet, as he is too rambunctious for the cat, but I think they
will get there by Christmas.
His puppy acne is going away and his stool tested worm free at the vet for his nine week appointment.
The vet said he looks really healthy.
Sometimes in the mornings he gets to ride to school on my son's lap in the car. He really enjoys this,
but by the time I get back home he is always asleep on the passenger seat.
I will send more pictures when I get a chance.
