Our boy is here! We were TOLD he's a Bordoodle, but we're pretty sure he's a BorShoodle (Border Collie/Baby Shark/Standard Poodle) and while he looks big in this photo, he's only twelve pounds and nine weeks old and an evil genius sent from another planet to taunt us.
If you don't think he could be part baby shark, I'd like to bring your attention to exhibit #1:
We had to fly to New Orleans to get him, which was nerve-wracking for two people who have barely left the house in a year...and then of course we didn't sleep for a week thanks to puppy bathroom breaks and a stomach bug that had him dumping his lunch and dinner from one end or the other and had us terrified... but he's feeling better! No doubt that happened while he was Hoovering the backyard for every foreign object that could fit in his mouth.
The vet said to give him bland chicken and rice and make sure he pooped to be sure there wasn't a blockage. That worked. In fact, then he refused to eat his food unless we put chicken and rice into it. Which I'm thinking may have been his nefarious plan from the beginning...
We weren't home an hour before I bent over to put something away and threw out my back. So I also spent the week walking around hunched like a witch. Mike already has a hip flexor injury, so between the two of us, we look a hundred years old. A thousand years old when we're chasing a puppy.
Now he's still not exactly perfect with the bathroom breaks (see exhibit #2), but for a baby he's already learned to go slap his doorbells to go out 90% of the time! And he can sit and give paw.
He can hear, but cannot listen.
Mommy's little genius mostly uses his brain for evil... He was caught chewing the metal leg of a table so after we told him NO the fifteenth time he picked up a chew toy and held it up against the metal as he chewed the table. Unlucky for him, we know the difference between the sounds of a stuffed chipmunk and a metal table leg.
But of course, all is forgiven the second he looks at us and he owns us.
PS: If you have a dog I highly recommend this bed. It is SO soft and HE LOVES IT. I'm not sure if you can tell.
