When I first read the thread title, I thought you were hospitalized. Glad it's something happy, instead.

what kind of puppy you getting? If I send you a bottle, will you bottle some warm sleeping puppy smell and send it back to me. My dog is out of that smell.

We have a Papillon, (Bruiser, in my avatar) and a Pomeranian named Chopper. The new one is a Papillon/Pomeranian cross named Buster. My wife refused to let me name him Rick James. It may be a few hours before I can get him to sit still for a photo.

I can sympathise with your wife. I can totally picture you walking the dogs, and when someone asks their names, you reply "those two are bruiser and chopper, and this is Rick James, beotch!"

Actually, I think dogs speak a secret language, and I wanted him to be able to say that famous phrase to female dogs.

He was raised by a guy that trains SWAT dogs, so he doesn't bark. The other two will fix that.

I have cleaned up 3 turds (only 2 from the new pup) and 4 wet spots on the carpet. He better learn quick. Here's a shot of him, motionless for a brief moment:

Sometimes a turd just forms out of nothingness. It's amazing to see. One of natures true miracles.

It came from a dog that should know better.

Even though Buster is the smallest of the three, he's definitely a guy's dog. I was in the kitchen reading and was vaguely aware of a small dog scarfing down food like a little pig. The next thing I know, he burped loud and proud.

So do people not crate-train small dogs? My goldens learned right quick to go outside.

I would suggest you waste at least an hour on Youtube watching all his videos as well. He's entertaining in a way no American could ever be.


Donna, he was an outside pup, so they apparently didn't bother with a crate. Luckily, he's only 5 months old, so he's still trainable. He spent last night in a crate, and when I took him out at 0'dark thirty, there was a baby owl on the telephone lines. Worthwhile getting up that early. He still hasn't barked, and if he whimpers, a quiet "shh" shuts him up.

You'll have to get a shot of the mini-pack and post it.
