    Red face PUPPIES

    When I got Matilda at 8 weeks, she was a furry little terror. She bit so hard and often that the only way we could play was if I dangled toys down from the safety of the couch. She was such a monster and had to be watched 24/7. I remember thinking, "well, good thing puppies are cute, because NO ONE would want one otherwise!" And I reminded myself that when I see a cute bully puppy not to get all nostalgic about missing her teeny fat ball stage, because it was a nightmare.

    Tilly is now 10 months and very well behaved, but when a new bully boy moved into our apartment complex, at 10 weeks old, I just died and now I miss when she was that way!

    Do you guys miss having little bully babies around? She was just so cute and fat then, I totally block out how awful she was! hahaha

    8 wks, the day I brought her home. That cupcake toy was long ago massacred.

    I have mixed feelings, I definetely miss the cute little wiggly, cuddly puppy stage, but don't miss the training, going out every 2 hours, the nipping, and whining stage, but it's the same as with our kids, you have the 2 am feedings, the crying, the times they are sick, and you don't know what's wrong with them, the worries, but you look at those sweet, cute, squishy, chubby faces and it's all worth it. And they both grow so fast, and you don't remember all the hard stuff and sleepless nights, you just remember all the cute moments and then you miss them, and wish they were little again.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Ugh, potty training is the worst! Matilda was pretty good about holding it, but we still went potty at 9PM, 12AM, 3AM, 6AM, 9AM, etc..

    Yep! I love all life stages I guess. I love the pups because I love to teach and see them learn, I love adults because I love seeing who they grow up to be.

    Awe. I got my boxer at 9 weeks old and must admit her puppy stage wasn't all rainbows and unicorns. Mona we got at 1 1/2 years old...Let's just say I miss Gracie more than I miss her puppy stage.

    I totally get the brat stage! Aubie was a huge brat when she was a puppy. I miss her being so little and how cute it was when she was learning or seeing something new... but I love my grown up dog! LOL.

    I was just thinking about this the other day! I love Lucy but I really dislike the puppy stage! It is fun when they are babies but the potty training really can be a problem and finding the right food is a struggle. Lucy doesn't chew much but Lola did like crazy! She would chase down my girls in their footed PJ's just to chew the feet. Lola was a way more complicated and crazy puppy, Lucy is very mellow and a lot more lazy but all and all I can't wait tell they are both grown! I love who Lola has grown up to be and I can't wait to see who Lucy will be! The puppy stage is over rated

    I'm with Lisa - I love it all; shark teeth, potty training, that awkward "teen" age (before they fill out) and all the worry that comes with a new life in your life.

    I wouldn't trade any of it. Not a second.

    I will have an EB puppy one day! I will put up with anything to be able to have access to the elixir of the gods--puppy breath!
