Meet Kipling the Wonder Puppy.
He is the newest addition to our already crazy household. Words don’t adequately describe how much cuteness has entered my life.
He is a six week old Lab mix.
He may have stolen my heart through photos long before I met him, but nothing compared to holding him for the first time.
Those sweet puppy kisses and that intoxicating puppy breath. My oh my.
Kipling the Wonder Puppy is S.M.A.R.T!
From the first hour we had him home, he found his crate on his own and went right inside, laid down and went to sleep. I’m quite impressed. Rather, I was actually shocked. haha He also likes to sleep right outside the door of the crate, or sometimes hanging half in and half out of the crate. But he definitely knows it’s his! He also knows exactly where his food and water is, which one is his and not our other dogs, and seems to respond well when given a sharp no. Of course he’s still puppy so he forgets his manners sometimes. And that’s just fine.He has melted everyones hearts around here and is going to wind up being a spoiled rotten dog. The only one he still needs to get to warm up a little is Lulu our 5 year old Shih-tzu who seems to be afraid of him. LOL She’s a weird, nutty dog anyway, but being afraid of a puppy that is 1/4 her size, is hilarious.
Carsyn thinks the puppy is awesome. Kipling seems to almost know he has to be gentle with Carsyn, or at least so far has. That amazes me.
Sorry, not sorry!
I feel bad (not really), but I’m probably going to be posting a lot about Kipling.
So sorry, not sorry ahead of time. 🙂
So you have now officially met Kipling the Wonder Puppy. What makes him such a wonder? Just how smart he is, just how much joy and happiness he brings and I’m left wondering why I didn’t get a puppy sooner.
Do you have any great puppy tips or tricks or hacks for us?
We already make these DIY Homemade Dog Treats with only TWO ingredients, but I’d love to know any other tips, tricks, hacks or recipes you might have that might make puppyville (the chew stage, the potty training, the crate training, etc.) go a little smoother. Feel free to tell me in the comments below.
