i got my baby yesterday!
it was a long horrible drive (i was nauseous the whole way there), but well worth it. and my mom convinced my dad to let us get another one (a girl) on the 28th. we're not gonna be breeding them, cause we'd end up keeping all the babies if we did (we get attached too easily). anyway, i think they might be related in some way, but i'm not sure.
we still don't know what to name him... no one can agree on anything. but i think he might end up being dante or ramzi.
he's 10 weeks old and 2 1/2 pounds... how much food should i feed him? the breeder said to give him 10 pieces of kibble and a half a tablespoon of wet food 3 times a day. that really doesn't seem like enough. he always licks his bowl until its spotless and he looks so hungry. but i've never had a puppy before, so maybe this is normal.
my mom just gave him twice as much and he devoured it in no time. he's so top heavy that his little back legs lift off the ground while hes eating :)
she also said i can't take him out in public til he 16 weeks old, even though he's had his first set of shots. is that right? i always thought they were safe after their first set. i guess its better to be safe than sorry.
anyway... sorry for bombarding you all with so many questions.
p.s. i didnt paint his toenails. the breeder did so she wouldn't mix up which puppy to give us.
