    Default Finally an update on the baby!

    So yes my little man was on the plane! He is settling in nicely. Driving my other dogs crazy because he wants to play. They are being good with him so far. I have not had a puppy in so long and I had forgotten how much puppy nipping hurts! My goodness his teeth are like razors. he gets pretty aggressive so i try to redirect and give him a toy. But he catches my toes periodically, he even bit my lip! That what I get for kissing his nose and he thought I wanted i play!!!

    He is doing pretty well in his crate and even cries to go potty. He has had a few pee accidents at night but has not pooped in the crate. Thank goodness. Potty training is going ok. Although the accidents he has had have been my own fault for not keeping the eagle eye on him.

    I currently have him on avoderm and he seems to be doing well, he had diarrhea when he got here and within days of switching his stool began to get harder. Pretty amazing. I do have a question about feeding. The breeder had him on eukanuba and the guidelines said 2 1/2 cups a day which I broke up into 3 feedings. The avoderm says 1/3 - 1 cup that seems like so little. Do they mean that much 2-3 times a day?

    So now the big issue!!! We cant decide on a name! I even started a poll on Facebook.

    The top choices are Hurley, Watson, Sherman and Hank. So far Hurley and Watson are tied with the most votes....LOL! Cannot believe how hard it is to pick a name!

    Is Hurley the chub on Lost? That would fit, but I like Sherman. He is adorable. I can't wait to see even more pictures.

    Always with me

    Phew ... glad to hear from you and to know that your baby got there safe!!!! Is this your first bullie?? Sorry, you may have said something in your original post but I forget ....

    I've voted for Watson ... I just like it because it reminds me of Dr Watson from Sherlock Holmes, and he kinda looks like Dr Watson!

    I don't know if this is going to be any help or not as far as the food is concerned ... I do know that the better the food is, the less you have to feed. Daddy is on 1 1/2 cups of the FROMM 4* food -twice a day. We're giving him more than it says on the bag because he's a puppy. Daddy is soon to be 5 months old.

    YES!! Hurley!! He is so cute! Silva was on Iams when I first got her and then switched her over to better food and it was less, so I do believe the better foods are less.
    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Anonymous

    I voted for hurley but I also like Hank. SO glad you have come back to update us, I think we were all going crazy wondering what happened?!? Your boy is adorable nomatter what name you pick and his tail is so cute!!!!!!! For food I would think you need to give more than what it says but am no expert by any means. @desertskybulldogs knows the answer to this one I am sure.
