(Pictures) How Freckles is Adjusting to His New Home

Several days ago, I posted about our new puppy Freckles and how important it is to support your local animal shelter. I thought you might like to know how he's getting along in his new home. A few days after being introduced to the rest of the family, his quiet and shy demeanor disappeared. He's a spunky, funky little pup who loves attention! One of his favorite things to do is dart around Cooper's (our 3 year old lab) head barking and growling like he's going to eat Cooper for dinner. I don't think Cooper believes him...

As you can see, there's quite a difference in size. It's hilarious to watch Cooper play with Freckles, because even though he tries to act tough, he moves very carefully and is gentle - as if he knows he could hurt that little pup pretty easily. Freckles has also found that he has a love for biting and chewing things. Even though we purchased little squeaky toys for him, he likes to find his own things to chew on...

He is very vocal and if he hasn't been held and loved on for a while, he has a way of letting you know! He whines when he's lonely, when he needs to 'go,' and when he yawns. He's also getting the hang of going outside to visit the bathroom - thanks to some super-soft bacon flavored treats. I think all those treats are making him chunky...

Ok, maybe not. When he's all tired out from running around and chewing anything he can get in his little mouth, he's ready to get settled for bed. He's definitely not a 'lone sleeper,' and will not get settled until he's curled up next to someone...

He hasn't actually SAID so, but I think he digs his new home and goodness knows he's been given tons of attention and love! Hope you enjoyed the update - leave me links of your furry babies, too!
