Default So tired..

No not Oliver but the wife and I. By 8PM it feels like midnight.. Of course we wouldn't change our decision to get Oliver.. Will have to say though the words of caution about getting a puppy and a Boxer puppy at that ,can not begin to express the true joys, the frustration, the fears , the exhaustion and doubts about having a boxer puppy.
This was one wild week. TT our cat and Oliver are starting to get along.. Well sort of . She is laying down the law. Sort of funny as a kitten she grew up with our last boxer and loved going with walks as part of the family pack.
We make our visit to the vet for the next set of shots. He is now at 14lbs and long and lanky. The way cool part of our visit was the breeder was there with his sisters. They had a blast visiting each other.

Only one female doesn't have a home yet. She is the one that we almost took home with Oliver. I don't think we could have managed it and am sure she will find a great home. One of his sisters is staying local and hopefully we they can be play buddies.
Oliver does sleep a bit.. Thank goodness but I swear he wakes up and is bigger.. He still fights going to sleep but we recognize it now and just put him to bed. House training is frustrating . He is better but I think he is playing hide and seek with us , as I find accidents here and there . For the life of me I am not sure how he does it as we watch him constantly.
The boxer in him is coming out. He is stubborn. When he wants his way he won't budge.Treats and acting excited have no effect. So glad we are starting his training now. He is social butterfly. The neighbors all love him and he as yet has not nipped anyone. All good behavior . Now with us nipping is our biggest problem and gets really bad at nap time. Hopefully that will slow up. We are feeling a bit like pin cushions.
Looking forward to another week of adventure. Oliver is napping now and well I think I better as well.

Such cute pups! Yep - boxer babies can be a challenge... but I wouldn't have it any other way! I just love the 2 boys I've been blessed with!

They're so adorable!! Good luck with Oliver! Our plans for this winter changed when we got Honey, but we wouldn't change our decision to get her for anything too

Keep your head held high. You are doing great. In the long run the consistency, patience and more consistency and even more patience will all be worth it as an adult! Cute puppies

Ohh the joys of puppyhood, and when he's a well behaved adult - guess what??

You'll want to start all over with another one !!!!!
