Rupert 3 months old

Oh Dear , I've just realised Rupert has hit 3 months old and I havn't done a monthly update.

Well we call him the pit bull poodle. His teeth are razor sharp and he loves using them !!!
He is very feisty, extremely confident, very intelligent and great fun. He loves toys and will tug , fetch and generally play with toys for ever.
His house training is about 95% there. He has never poo'd in the house ,and has only ever had the odd wee accident if he gets over excited.
Vaccinations are all done and apart from being sleepy after the first jab he had no after effects at all. He eats like a horse and annoys the hell out of the other dogs. Disney still HATES him and 2 weeks ago we started to let them mix. Unfortunately Rupert did not take Disney seriously when Disney gave him every possible signal to go away. In the end Disney had a go at him. Rupert then kept a very wide berth and would run to us for cuddles as soon as Disney came in the room. However today Rupert seems to have forgotten and is pushing his luck again..I did say he was a confident puppy !!!

Here are some pics of him taken recently after a bath and clip.







This weekend just gone we met up with Ruperts Mum, Dad and Sister. His Sister decided to beat him up good and proper..poor Rupert...Lol
Here is a family photo

Rupert aged 2 months


Rupert has settled in so well. The boys are still in love and he is getting more and more confident every day. His house training is going really well. He goes immediately he is taken out and to date has only had 2 accidents indoors. He is almost sleeping right through to 7- 8am as well. Eating is not going quite so well and he is being a bit picky. I'm sure that will get better.

Today he had his first jab and he is feeling pretty poorly. He just wants to sleep and I hate it. I really hate vaccinations but the puppy jabs and first booster are so important. After that he will be titre tested to see if he need boosters each yr, just like I do for my other dogs. I feel very strongly that dogs do not need boosters every year and my Disney is proof of that. He's nearly 13 yrs old and he had his last booster at 2 years old. Every year since the titre test shows he is still 100% covered . I have had similar results with Woody and Chip. Disney's Mum died of an auto immune disease which has been proven can be a result of vaccination !! so there is no way I'll take any chances.
