Squash has been here for three weeks and he is starting to settle in. We gave the kennel two weeks and he got worse and worse. For the past week he has been gated in the living room/dinning room with my weims when I leave and he is doing really well. He rubs his muzzle a little, but otherwise he sleeps the whole time. I come home during my break to let them out.
He is an easy going dog and very calm. He walks great on leash but will pull a little when he spots a squirrel. He loves car rides. He is great with all grooming; I brush his teeth every night, have cleaned his ears and trimmed his nails. He learned the stairs after only 10 mins and uses them daily just fine. He is a huge food hound.
Squash is very loving and comes up to me for pets and head/ear scratches. He'll push into you and move closer if you stop loving on him. Squash is very accepting of everything I do to him, he even allows me to take toys/items from him. This is good because Squash has a tendency to chew/eat toys and contraband (socks, gloves, undergarments, etc.). He destroys toys very quickly and will try to ingest them. Squash's only other negative is that his internal alarm clock goes off around 5 A.M. and he starts doing a full body rub against the bed. This is all really cute during the day, but not at 5!
Squash is an easy going and lovable boy. I'm hoping to try some training with him next week, we'll see how he does.
Here are pics from the first snow fall. Squash does not usually sit, but when it snowed he was very unhappy and wanted back in. He came up to me and just sat down in the snow, it was really weird! He looked so cute and uncomfortable, but handsome as always! <3
