Come back later if you are here for knitting ...

Yesterday we went to the Vet's for Happy's second vaccination, weighing and a general looksy.
Dr. Doug our regular Vet was not there, so we were supposed to get Dr. Jackie, who we don't know yet. Instead Dr. Nora saw us come in and snatched our appointment away from Dr. Jackie, just so she could have some time with Happy. She's heard of him, but not seen him. Well, he welcomed her, like an long lost old friend. I should start taking the camera to the Vet's too, but it's always really hectic there. First thing was standing on the scale, not really surprising he weighs a ton. Since I still have to carry him down the stairs, I can tell.
Aug. 8-13- weighing 19lbs

This little piggy is 11 weeks old today, and he weighs 19lbs (~ 8.7 kg). When we picked him up he was 6 1/2 weeks old and weighed 7.9lbs (~ 3.6 kg). Dr. Nora said he's on the tall and skinny side and we could feed him more. Everything else was fine, except he behaved like a maniac, no manners at all. He's the first dog who liked those healthy treats the Vet gives out, I'm afraid this one would eat anything. Biko and Sam always politely took the treats when offered, and spit them out descretely.
It's hard to play with a full belly like that!

Aug. 8-12

Happy little Happy tail.

Aug. 8-6

Biko wanted to play ball, but was not sure who would get it first.

Aug. 8-8

Wild crazy eyes before he ran off in a puppy run.

I'm gonna getch'ya!

I'm sure Biko was thinking ," What did I do to deserve this?"

What did I do to deserve this?

Still not far enough?

Not far enough.

Comming up next time are pictures of Happy and his new wading pool. It all started with digging in water bowls, flooding kitchen and hallway ...

Somehow I missed this picture yesterday and since he's growing fast, it should be in this post:

Look at me! How can you say such things about me?

From the pics you can tell Biko is not all that crazy about his little bother ;) But he sure is cute. I bet they'll be the best of buddies someday!

Don't tell Wes The Cat but I think I might be a 'would-be' dog owner living vicariously through you and your canines. Love these posts.

hehhe Love those crazy puppy eyes.
You know I was saying to Moose yesterday that although Biko doesn't seem to be in love with Happy yet I bet she'd be the first there to defend him if he got into any trouble.
Love those pups!

What a fun update on Happy's growth! Doubled in size that quickly. Boy oh boy. Wonder what he will weigh as an adult?

Lovely pictures. I do think Biko deserves an extra treat or two :)))

I love when you post pictures of Biko and Happy together =)
Happy is growing fast and every time I came back here, I think he's more gourgeous than the last time.

Loving all the Happy pics. Post all you want!

That last pic is really great, Happy all well, happy and expectant and Biko nosing just off camera.

A little maniac, eh? lol.

That's what I call "all ears"!

It looks to me like someone likes having his picture taken on a regular basis. So glad he got a good report from the vet. He's growing so fast. And, you get to feed him more. Ah, those glorious days of pupphood when we all asked ourselves what in the world were we thinking.

LOVE THE PICS!! If the treats are those freeze dried liver things, Rufus (our Maine Coon cat) knows his vet hands them out and he snoops all over the exam room till he gets some (not one, some)

He is still beyond adorable!

I know I've said this before but he is so cute! I love all the pictures but I really like the one of Happy on his back looking in the direction of the ball.

Thanks for posting the pictures, I really enjoy seeing them.
