I'm not a fan of this stage. He is SO obnoxious. Did I mention that he is OBNOXIOUS? I love him to death, and he gazes adoringly at me (seriously), but OMG.
This is how I feel too. My 10 month old is huge and yet doesn't seem to know how big and clumsy he is.

I could have written this exactly as Llombardo did. My guy will be turning 8 soon and not a day goes by where I don't wish he was a young pup again. I wish now that I had appreciated much more the puppy days and the PIA young dog days.

I dread the day he will be leaving me.

Actually... I've been here the whole time. That's the true meaning of ninja skills.

Galathiel It had been well over 10 years since I'd had a puppy. I didn't even want a puppy then, but couldn't find a suitable older dog. At 15 months old, he's still so puppy-headed that he's exhausting at times. I"ll be glad when he's .... 3 ... and hopefully has finally matured.

Diesel7602 I can't wait tell mine is grown. He was cute as a puppy, But I would never want to go back to the land shark age. I honestly think he will be the only German I get. Unless I forgot about the biting times. He is turning into such a handsome fellow. I keep wondering how big he will get though. Does any one know when they stop growing?

qbchottu Hahahah please do!!

Pups are like anything else. Once you raise a few, you get a rhythm that works. The tried and true methods with some modifications have helped for me. Plus it helps if you have a genuine love for raising these little critters. I love all of it - from worming them to nail clippings to socialization to potty training. It's such a joy for me to see these awkward fat fur balls learn to navigate the big world.

As long as you always remember that they are just naive little guys that need your help and guidance - you will learn to laugh instead of freaking out.

Awe this is so sweet and true...

For me, I like other people's puppies though...can't take on the responsibility.

Speak for yourself.


Can I come over when you have the litter and they are about 5 weeks old? Then I can leave. LOL.
