I've been lurking for months and finally joined :)

Hello everyone! I have been a dedicated lurker on this forum for about 6 months and love it. I should have joined a long time ago but was intimidated to without having anything to contribute. I just became as much of a sponge as I could be. I have found so many resources and learned so much. We got Frankie at 10 weeks old and he is now 13 weeks. He has been such a joy to add to our family. I know it has been only a short time and I am anticipating the teenage "butthead" stage but man...we are in love with Frankie. He has been a breeze to train from housebreaking to bite-inhibition. We are working on basic commands and will be enrolling him in an obedience school for bonding and more socialization opportunities. I know that this forum has given me such a headstart as far as what to expect and how to be a better mommy. I can't wait to continue our journey with all of you and share a glimpse of this wonderfully sweet babes we have!







He won't move to his big boy bed He fit in this one for all of oh...two days. He's partial to it now...silly boy.

Welcome-Frankie is such a cutie pie. Pretty soon you will not even be able to see that little bed he is laying on. They grow so fast.

Thank you all for the warm welcome. I am amazed at how quickly he has grown so far! In the three weeks we have had him he has practically doubled. The first picture was within a few days of bringing him home. I am cherishing every second!

Welcome!

Frankie is adorable!!!

I love the fact that he doesn't want to move to his big boy bed! You KNOW you have to keep that bed for him now right? Can't wait to see him at 1 year still sleeping in.. or atleast his head in.. that itty bitty bed!

Welcome. He will probably lighten up a bit but he's going to be a very handsome dude.
