    I think there are a couple of people on here that feed TOTW and their dogs do well on it but I can't remember who! Sorry! Hopefully they will see this thread and comment.
    Thanks! We got him yesterday and he has been awesome so far. Great temperament. And we actually decided to go with Fromm puppy in the pink bag. His breeder had him on Royal Canin. Apparently I gave too much of the Fromm in his bowl this morning because it didn't sit well. How much of the new food/old food should I put in his bowl?

    I would start out very slowly by taking out just a little bit of his old food and adding the same amount of the new, a tablespoonful maybe to start as he is so young. Gradually increase those amounts over about 10 days or so. Don't rush it! If you do it too quickly, you will probably get an upset tummy which sounds like he already did! Don't worry though, we have all been there!! I still take it very slow with my boys if I have to change, which I hope I never have to again.

    Thank you all for the kind words and help. So we are now on day 4 and I know he's only 9 weeks, but is it common to have to wake up anywhere from 4-5 times in the middle of the night to use the bathroom? Also nearly hourly during the day? I like that he's finally telling me he needs to go, but seems a little excessive.

    When my pups were that age, they went out about every two hours during the night. Even more in the daytime,especially if they had been playing! Don't get discouraged! It will be worth it, in the longrun. The less accidents inside, the better.

    Well that's good to hear. My next question is, a couple days ago after I got done taking him out to relieve himself, I noticed his paws had a yellowish color to them. Do you know what could cause that? And if so, how can I get it off?

    Could it be pollen?
