Boston questions...

Ok. I have a few breed-related questions. My new Boston has hoover-like tendencies. I swear to you, if it's on the floor, it's in his mouth no matter what it is. This freaks me out a bit because the last thing I want is to have to rush him to the vet for an emergency surgery. I've been pretty diligent about dropping stuff or leaving anything within his reach that might cause him harm. Does anyone else have problems like this? Any advice about how to curb this bad habit?

I also noticed he has a hard time with stairs. He's got a strange gait, which just seems normal for him. Not like a deformity. He's also super-clumsy. Is this normal?

Other than these few things, he has been doing great. He's a real momma's boy. Follows me around EVERYWHERE and loves to snuggle up to me as close as he can on the couch. He even goes as far to smush his head between my arm and my torso to make sure I'm touching him. So cute!

He's doing really well with asking to go outside when he needs to go, even though he knows it's freezing outside. Such a good boy! I've also discovered that he can't have plushy toys because it takes him very little time to have de-fluffed it. Today he surgically excised the fluff and squeaker out of his Charlie dog toy. Looks like I have to go for the more heavy-duty toys. Hehe!

His Pomeranian sister is starting to warm up to him some more and I caught them actually playing together earlier this afternoon! She also slept on top of him on the way home from my parents house the other day. We had a good chuckle over that.








Anyhow, I appreciate any advice you guys can give me. Happy New Year!!
