He's growing, he's growing...

At our last Vet visit Bruno was 14.2lbs and 14" tall, at 14 weeks now. So he's definitely growing. He's still a vicious biter, but I hope this trait goes away with age. We've been going to the dog park every weekend to terrorize the other small dogs and children. We tried out the big dog area last week, and Bruno soon realized jumping on every dog isn't a great idea. He preferred the small park, so we went back. We'll try again next month.

He still has worms, but we're hoping that we're at the tail end of this experience...ha, ha. If anyone has any suggestions, all are welcome!

Some friends of ours gave us a battery operated bouncy ball for Bruno. He loves it. He's so smart that he knows how to turn it on and off! Well, I'm not sure if he really knows or if during random chewing he pulls or pushes the button. It's a great way for him to let out that chewing energy on the ball rather than our hands, arms, feet, etc. I'll try to remember to get some good footage of this, quite funny, really.

He's also started to lift his leg while waiting for a treat (as shown in the image.) And then he swats at the treat. I guess this is the boxer trait. We're trying to get him to only so this when we ask for his paw, or shake.

That's it for now. Have a great day!

Geez, has he grown since last weekend?!? ;) He looks giant in that photo! I'm going to be sad when he's too big to pick up and put in my lap... but at the same time I'm excited to see what he'll look like all grown up! He's such a sweet boy! We should plan another dog park meet-up. I'm glad the bumble ball is still getting use! :D Sorry, about the worms, hopefully they'll pass soon. I'd like more videos as well! Something to hold me over between visits with the real thing ;)
