You might have noticed in yesterday’s post that there were only six puppies with their new families on Sunday. And that’s because Stanley is staying just a bit longer because of his new dad’s work schedule. Ideally, we want all the puppies from a litter going home on puppy delivery day but sometimes we will keep a puppy for a bit longer if we have the time and it works for us.
So in the next week you might be seeing Stanley in some of our posts and pictures as he hangs out with us and continues his training.
And just like his brothers and sisters that went home already, this is an adjustment time for him to as he learns to live (sort of) by himself. Of course, he’s not alone but he doesn’t have any playmates his age anymore. He can visit with Sasha, Cody and Cami but only with a fence in between as they play too rough and are so much bigger.
But he’s joining me for his own adventures, practicing spending time in his pen and his crate and learning each day.
My Stanley hat!
Watching “dad” vacuum.
“Helping” to fill the bird feeder.
Saying hello to Cody and Sasha from the safety of the other side of the fence.
Saying hi to Cajsa (or Cajsa’s nose). She’s so patient with the puppies.
Learning to walk on a leash.
Well, sort of….
It’s going so well. Honestly, despite the tangled mess he made he did good for his first “walk”.
After breakfast and a nap in his crate I went and woke him up.
He was still sleepy and so cuddly. 🥰
Then we went outside for a potty break. “Go potty.”
Then he got to meet Zeus!
Yes, the cat weighs about three times what Stanley does!
Stay tuned for more adventures with Stanley!
