      Barley, two weeks home

      This little guy continues to be a joy! Two weeks in and Im just loving everything about him. Hes not very mouthy and his crying and yelping have diminished significantly - he seems to be adjusting well to the crate. Thor is learning how to be a big brother and they love playing together. Barley is definitely the instigator and weve learned that he is the one we need to calm down if they get crazy.

      We have family in town this week so its been tricky managing our touristy outings with puppy needs, but weve managed to make due by tying in some socialization. Barley has ridden along for some sightseeing, getting carried to viewpoints and along short trails. We repurposed an old laundry basket and blanket so he can sit outside with us safely at restaurants. I also bought a cheap dog kangaroo harness from amazon - it will only work for about a week before he outgrows it but its so ridiculous that I love it. Hes meeting lots of people and being super chill with all the things hes being exposed to!

      Puppy crib!



      And his ridiculous harness.



      They are friends



      Between rounds of bitey face.

      I should mention that his training is coming along great - hes a smart cookie! Crate and house training came in no time. He can also sit, down, place, speak, and wait for his dinner. Hell be 10 weeks old on Saturday. So proud of my little guy. He doesnt even start puppy kindergarten until the 29th and Im going to be that helicopter parent who thinks their pup is a rockstar.

      You got some great pictures....he sure looks like a bundle of love. (and Thor looks so happy with his new little brother...he looks like he's saying "what took you so long?" to get him a buddy.)

      The basket and carrier are such good ideas....he sure seems to like them.

      Simply adorable! Asher was the advanced guy in puppy class too! The instructor would often borrow Asher for demonstrations. I was so proud. So much fun working with them. Sounds like you are having a blast.
