Bentley, 11 weeks

Bentley is now 11 weeks old and has been a part of my household/pack for 3 weeks.  He has fit into the routine so easily that it is hard to believe it has only been 3 weeks since I brought him home.  I don't think he would have been happy being an only dog.  I had let the others spend the weekend at the vet's while I traveled to get him so there was a short time while he was the only dog in the house.  When he finally got to meet his playmates he was so excited.  His little tail was just wagging away and I know he was thinking, "other doggies, other doggies, just like me"!  He is so cute with them because he doesn't realize he is small and just does whatever they do.

He is a lot like Baylee, quiet and easy going.  I've only had to get on him a few times about doing things he shouldn't (like pulling on the leg of my pajamas while I walk and for chasing cats) and he always minds me.  We had some sleepless nights at first because he did not like being put in the kitchen at bedtime.  I finally put together my 24" cage and put it next to the big dogs 36" cage in a corner of the breakfast room.  I was uneasy about doing that since he is so young and I was afraid he would potty on himself but he has not had a single accident in the cage!  He only cried a little that night and then slept through the night.  I'm now a firm believer in crate training!

I didn't realize how much he has grown until I looked at some of the early pictures.  I need to shoot a few pictures because the others are almost out of date.  He is just a sweet little baby dog.  What a little love!
