Auggie has settled in just fine, and he and Cosmo are getting along pretty well. Auggie is growing like a weed. When I got him, he was 10 weeks old and weighed in at 23 pounds. Three weeks later, at the vet for his second set of shots, he weighed in at 34 pounds. I can only imagine what he will be when full grown! Can you say dogosaurus?
Auggie is doing great with his initial training. He will sit on command (with a hand signal also), down is iffy and only works when I have a treat handy, and he knows “come” only when it is said like this: “Auggie Auggie Auggie … COME .. treat!” For a matter of fact, if you add “treat” to any request, he pretty much jumps to it right quick.
There is a lot of “bitey face” going on around here, too. Cosmo seems to enjoy having Auggie climb all over him, chew on his neck and face, pull his ears, and bite his feet. Cosmo is amazingly patient.
The verdict? So far so good!
