Having to juggle studies and taking care of a small creature that depends on you is very hard. But the good news is that I have kind of figured out how to do it. And also educate and teach tricks to my small puppy. Today Cooper is officially 15 weeks old. It seems like yesterday that I got him. When people say that time fly’s by the really mean it. You only notice it when you have a creature that grows week by week and you can actually see how time fly’s.
With each week that passes he learns more tricks and learns more how to behave. (or at least I’m trying). The biting still hasn’t stopped or gotten better, but he does understand when we tell him “no”. Last week my dad took him to the veterinarian and he came back telling me how my dog is a drama queen. He screamed and didn’t want to take his vaccine. He even peed on the veterinarian’s table. I was so happy I didn’t go with him because I wouldn’t be able to tolerate the screaming and whining. I’m what you can call a big mama. And I wouldn’t want to see my baby in “pain”, which he actually wasn’t. He was just being a drama queen. (He always does that.) That’s a characteristic of Beagles and Bassets they love to be drama queens.
Cooper now knows how to: Sit, Down, Stay, Shake, High Five, Come….
We’re going to start teaching him play dead this week…Wish me luck.
