We’ve had Polo for over a week now. He is such a good puppy. The last two days he didn’t have any accidents in the house. Of course, Doug watches him like a hawk for his “potty signals” and then takes him outside. He’s getting very comfortable in his new home with his new family. He stopped crying at night after about the 3rd or 4th day. We have a radio on for him at night time so that he has some background noise. We’ll probably set that to a sleep mode soon and see if he is okay with it, then try no radio and see if he’s good with that. He doesn’t fuss when he goes in the crate and he will even go in there and play with his toys or his blanket. I think I feel sadder than he does when I have to leave for work and put him in there!
He had an appointment at the vet last Friday and he checked out okay. He was very good with the people and the other dogs there. He did cry a little when the doctor wanted to get in his face and look at his ears. But then, she had just violated him with a thermometer, so he was probably a little nervous! Everyone at the office thought he was adorable.
This past Saturday when I woke up, Doug and Polo were coming inside from going potty. Polo saw me at the top of the stairs and just ran right up them without stopping! He used to be scared to death of the stairs. We were so proud of him! He is still a little scared going down them, though, but I’m sure he’ll be over that soon.
