Arnie's Progress

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Well we went for a visit again today just to make sure the pick of the pup was right for us. When we first visited the two L&W pups showed us the most interest, my Mrs liked the other one from me but later changed her mind. The stud dog owner picked his one and picked the L&W dog that we didn't want thankfully (we all thought he would pick the B&W dog) so we said we will take the other L&W in that case that he had picked originally anyway. My mate however reckoned (and still does) that the B&W dog is the nicest dog there, more stylish etc and a lot smaller (second smallest in the litter).

 

We went down anyway to see them and just have a look, and my mate said bring our current Springer Ted (Ted is all up to date on Jabs and everything) and will be with the pup next week so took him down. My mate has 2 golden retrievers and a lab anyway so the pups have been well socialised with other dogs around playing and all sorts. I got the two dogs left out on their own and we put them in the kitchen where Ted was alreadty waiting just to carefuly introduce. Ted was brilliant, just came over for a light sniff but was very good.

 

The B&W dog looked at Ted and thought sod that, gave a little yelp and ran and went underneath one of those raised beds. Well, Arnie that we have picked wasn't quite so unsure. The bold little ****** charged right up to Ted, stuck his nose in his face for a good snuff, and then tried to have a play with him. 

He is a bold little ****** let me tell you. I am very very happy with our pick, hes definately the boldest I think and the one that's into everything and all sorts of mischief. I think he will be a right ****** :lol: Once the B&W dog came out he was fine as well and had lots of cuddles, despite us not liking him last time he was a totally different dog this week, he had lots of cuddles with Amy and was nice, he reminded us a lot of Ted as a pup but I was looking for something with a bit more go in it and more confident to train and see how he compares. 

 

Managed to snap a little vid of Arnie, he likes to follow Ted although had no problem making his own way over to the grass piles and bombing through it. Got a feeling he won't have any issues with cover :hmm: lol. I will be training them seperately, and keeping them apart unless supervised when home. Got kennel panels coming this week to setup a run in the garage for a bit of away time when we are wanting him to have a time out, similar to a crate but with lots more room. 

Here he is... 

 

Excuse the high pitch pup pup pup ... they don't know their names yet :lol:

Only a quick glance but I like the black and white that one leads, the other follows.

Your going to have some fun with that one, as you know their personality can change and at that age its difficult to know for sure how it will turn out. Good luck with the little fella and keep us updated. 👍

Good luck with the new pup. You are very wise keeping the dogs apart unless supervised. I noted how, when they spend a lot of time together, they look to each other rather than me with my last pup. Never had it before but this pup is in the house for the first few months having a crate and penned area in the front porch to make sure that doesn’t happen again. He won’t go into the kennels for a couple of months when I have created the bond I want.

D-Day arrived we got back home around 2pm. 
 

Ted doesn’t mind the new arrival but is mostly stand off-ish.

 

The pup (understandably) isn’t quite as bold as when at home... he’s finding his feet but settling in well at the moment, had two meals, 3 poops and peeps in the garden, 1 pee in the house 🤣 and lots of cuddles!

She is a boy :P lol... at least I think he identifies as a boy ... 

 

He has got a set of lungs on him, had a right howl last night but been good today, putting him in the kennel for periods with Ted and he is ok. Ted is a bit put out though. He also really don't like it when the pup whines and makes noise. 

 

He always has been a little funny when someone elses dog makes a whine or noise or something. He comes to me for reassurance.
