Welcome the newest addition to the Watt household, 8 weeks old and wanting ready for anything. Today is his first day away from his fur family so he has been a bit unsettled, I haven't had much chance to do anything but look after him, cuddle him and play with him, though looking at these photos you wouldn't think so. Think the kids got him all tuckered out when we picked them up from school. He is the most handsome little fellow and should be easy enough to train - heres hoping the toilet training doesn't take too long to get down pat!!
He is from extemely good stock and is from the same linage as my much loved and grieved for boy Jason, so with this one we have a pretty good idea of temperment, build etc. We thought we were going to have to wait for months for a dog that was suitable but for some reason the person who had this one on hold changed their minds - more fool them I say. I will attempt some awake shots tomorrow, today my camera battery was in the craft room with my camera in my bedroom and I wasn't allowed to go anywhere without the little man howling in "agony" at losing me through doors LOL. I didn't want him wandering too much in the house due to accidents and the dangers that lurk in my craft room for little inquisitive puppies who will taste and nibble at anything.
We think we may call him Chester but will give it a few days to make up our minds for certain - I like to see where his personality lies and if he fits this name or another. He does have a grown up official name which I can't remember off hand so will put in later, I don't want to disturb the peace while I can get a few minutes typing. It's going to break my heart to leave him for an hour or so tomorrow but I have to get stuff done. One thing that isn't causing problems is his typical labrador appetite...I couldn't believe how fast his food was put away tonight...even for a lab!!! and he was the smallest in weight of his litter....I have a feeling that won't last LOL. At the moment is nice to have another animal in the house after such a long time...thought I may not be saying that tomorrow morning as I can see a very restless night (and noisey one at that) ahead.
