So we have had Pippin with us now going on three weeks and he never seizes to amaze me. He is very talkative, to the other dogs, to the mop, to my hubby and me and especially to his two human siblings, Sofia and Lukas..
He went to his first puppy class yesterday and before we had run through the sit motion three times he was doing it on cue..smart boy..the lab puppy owner was in shock…this was their second class...hehe, don't tell me basenjis are stupid..no way.
He knows our certain rules around the house..like not sitting on MY leather chair my darling hubby had imported from Sweden as a gift a few years ago..Pippin doesn't care..he gets on it, we take him off, he gets on it again..gives us all a big barrooo and we take him off again, back up and barroo..the circle never ends..until we break it with some distraction.
Most of y'all know our struggles with the crate..well we had a small victory today when I moved is indoor wire crate into the car..he even fell asleep in it..jippea!!…at home he would only eat in it, never anything else. He loves Moses' crate though..go figure.
We have transitioned him onto "big boy" food, i.e no more puppy food, now he eats what the big boys and girls eat..grain free Nature's Domain..he loves it, his stomach never complained either..another jippea!!
So no he doesn't have to continue eating dirt outside, poor boy..
He has found the shower..might curious about it and frequents it often when we are done using it..he also loves walk through puddles..
