So I mentioned awhile back that I adopted a new puppy name Gatsby.
He may be cute, but man, has it been a rough road.
He has been home for almost two months and he is still not potty trained. Just when I think we are making progress he does something like take a running leap onto the couch and starts peeing all over it (this happened about half and hour ago).
He has the attention span of a goldfish and training has been difficult because I swear he is constantly looking in three different directions at the same time….and none of those directions are on me!
He has even gone so far as to growl aggressively and try to bite me on several occasions for little infractions. For example, one night I was trying to make him move sleeping positions so I nudged his shoulder. Apparently that was enough to warrant an aggressive bite and attempted bite.
On top of all of that, he just doesn't seem to be bonding with me. He LOVES Rory and would follow her to the end of the earth and back, but me I feel like his reaction is just…."eh"
I am hoping that since my last day of work is over tomorrow I will be able to start an intensive bonding and training regime with him Friday morning. I've spoken to my vet about the situation and I will be using all his advice also.
Either way I promise some pictures of the little
jerk guy…so here you go!
