We now keep our closet door tightly closed.  So far he can't open it.  He is smart though so I hope he doesn't figure it out or I will have to put a latch on it.  He gets plenty to eat too.  He shouldn't be hungry.

I told the wife that Glenn has been asking if I am going to give the sock back to her and she got a chuckle out of it.  She burned it in the fire she had yesterday.  GONE!   :rotflmao:

well LPS, i think my dog, your dogs brother  :rotflmao: just out did cooper the other day!!!!!!!! :doah: :doah:

so yesterday morning started out like any other morning, let shadow out of his kennel, i noticed he may have spit up something, he already rolled out what looked like a sock.  :confused: yep sure as hell, one of my wifes socks just like your wifes. it was all guey, slimy.  :doah: pulled out the blanket i laid in there to air out and dry out, sure as heck there was another one!!!!!! :doah: :confused: same condition....wet guey, slimy.   both hit the garbage.

so i think he ate them somehow and during the nite spit them back up. i know he didnt poop them out from what i could tell. but they were pretty gross.

A few weeks ago we let him have the run of the house.  He jumps in bed between us and then migrates down to our feet.  Usually sleeps all night but I let him and Buddy out once in the night when they get my attention sometimes.  Pretty fun actually.

Just got home from the Vet.  Here is how my boys looks now.  Like he was just in a prize fight with Rocky.  They neutered him too so poor guy.  They neuter by weight so I asked if they weighed him before or after they took his noogies.  She smiled.  It is how much juice to put them out for their size.

They take out a slice of skin lower than the eyelid and then sew it up.  She said it will tighten up as it heals.  Looks painful.  May have to give him a Tylenol if it seems to bother him too much. Oh ya, he weighed 60 lbs.  Those other marks aren't from his skirmishes with Buddy.  Must have been a clamp to hold his head that made those two marks.

Just had Cooper neutered and had his eyelid operated on last Wed.  I asked them and they said it is ok to feed the large breed puppy stuff until they are 8 or 9 months old.  Then go to the adult stuff I guess.  So I think I will order another bag of the puppy stuff.  I get 40 lb bags.  Getting low on this bag so will get one more of them.  Good that our Vets said about the same thing.

LPS, i made reference in the good morning thread that leads me to believe you do not kennel cooper up at night???? does he behave at night??? i'm afraid yet that shadow might chew on everything thats loose in the house, or crap and pee during the night even though he hasnt done it but once since we had him. and that was up north the very first night and who knows what he consumed that day????? :doofus: :doofus: :bonk:

because it stunk......like bad......throw away his blanket i put in the kennel bad!!!!!!!

LOL  ya what they eat sure makes a difference doesn't it?  I wondered what you were doing with Shadow.  We went shopping over a month ago and left him loose in the house.  It was already fairly dog proofed. ??  Kind of.  We have our slippers and shoes in the porch protected with a child gate.  Well he did fine.  So then we left him longer when we went on a longer day trip.  Pretty much ok.  So now we never put him in the kennel.  It is where we store his toys and he pulls them out to play with them.  He jumps in bed with us now and after a few minutes he lays by our feet.  If he jumps down we let him be.  If he needs to go out during the night he comes and whines quietly next to my head so I get up and let him out.  Works great!  I think we found a pee spot or two as this was developing but no big deal.  The wife got this spray that she sprays on it whilst cleaning it up and leaves no stains.  Haven't had an accident in a long time now.  We sure love him.  He gets kind of rowdy at times but is a great dog.  When he wants out we just let him out.  Sometimes Buddy goes out with him.  He doesn't go far from the house, yet.  Always comes back in after not too long or we go out and check him out.  Usually chewing on a piece of wood from the woodpile.  He learned that from Buddy.  I got screen guards for the screen doors on the camper.  Will get them in this week.  He scratches on the sliding door here when he wants out during the day or does his whine thing.  He is pretty vocal.  Kind of nice.

I've been trying to get him around more people cuz he barks some and pees when he gets excited/scared.  I use the FedEx and UPS people as training people.  LOL  He hasn't been around any other dogs and that is exactly what he needs now.  Will be good for him.  Buddy gets a little grumpy but is a real nice dog so we will keep him tied up or in the camper until we get all greeted.  Will be a fun deal.
