I decided to get an older puppy when I got Fiona....So I missed out on the puppy puppy stage. The smushy face/egg head stage. The wake up at night to go potty, crying during the night, poop and pee everywhere stage.... HAHA....Okay now I remember why I did that. :lol: . She was already 12 weeks. I would not trade her for the world, but I sure love seeing them when they are little one's.
