Bim's first month!

Wow, nearly a month he has been here!!! And he's grown like a weed!! Put a wicket to him at the show on Sunday and he is 12 3/4" tall. Weighed 11.5lbs. He's pretty average compared to his littermates. Although his "twin" is MUCH beefier! At nearly 15lbs already! :O

Bim has no trouble eating and is feeling just right for weight. We are trying to be careful with his jumping and doing stairs. Ugh, carrying him down the stairs all the time is annoying, but we have these growth plates to worry about until he is about 6 months old! :O Never had one this young with that sort of thing to worry about. Hiking has been minimal, so that's not much of a concern. The deer flies are BRUTAL in the woods, although they totally prefer Spur to Bim. Poor Spur. Lucky Bim.

This video shows beginning tricks, he is now quite a bit advanced with all of them and knows even more! :D He's SUPER smart and quick to learn things! So much fun!! I never thought a puppy would be so much fun!!! He's just the nicest boy!!!!

Still can't convince Spur to play with him, so he is attending a very fancy day care once/week to get some puppy play and socialization in. There are usually about 7 pups and two trainers so it is WELL monitored!! Not your usual day care. We may do one or two more sessions. I am hopeful Spur will eventually play with him, but Bim actually doesn't push the issue. Spur has snapped at him a few times and, well, Bim got the picture and doesn't push it. I don't think he is the type of dog who will be madly interested in other dogs. He likes to play and he and Moose play really nicely, thankfully. Good little Moose.

I have been taking photos, but I have to say he isn't the fashion model Spur is. In fact, some of his action shots are quite horrid! He looks totally goofy and strange. LOL!!! Spur can have a goofy expression and it is still the cutest and most beautiful photo. Not Bim. When he is goofy, boy is he GOOFY!!!
