Month day and First Outing

Well, Myra is gone. She left yesterday and she was a very nice little house guest for the holiday. I forgot to mention that she is Spankys half sister. They share the same dad (Domingo) and I can actually see a lot of similarities between them, both in looks and personality. (The only thing she is lacking is Spankys neurotic side. . . which is a good thing) I actually called her Spanky a few times. Oops! But she was fantastic. This is her in my 3-D glasses after seeing the movie Bolt. (which is super cute) I thought it was funny.
Myra and Fullertons last pic together. It was so cute Fullerton would always go and sit under Myra when she would stand like that. They are some sweet pups.
Today is Fullertons 3 month birthday. I weighed him in today at 20 pounds. He is definitely growing. So, for his 3 month day I took him on his first outing and he did marvelous. He was a bit sniffy and "environmentally aware" but what can you expect from a 12 week old puppy on his first trip to the grocery store. It was a quick in and out grabbing some whipped cream on the way. We got stopped by one person who cooed about him and told me a long story about her childhood lab. . . and Fullerton did a wonderful "sit, stay" while she talked. I was very impressed his "stay" is really coming along. (in the picture his eye is a little messed up because of the Halti, silly thing is not conducive for great picture taking. *sigh*)

On the way out I ran through an isle with random holiday/celebration stuff and this hat was too cute not to try on him. He was a sport though. :)

Unfortunately, (as of yesterday) he is back on his rice and cottage cheese meals. *sigh* I was really hoping we were over it but it came back with a VENGEANCE!! He got a new prescription from the vet that he will have to take for 3 weeks and then *cross your fingers* he will be okay after that. Other than that he is a great little pup and is learning new things every day, he is so smart and is already showing some great initiative and not much phases him. (except getting in the car, once he is in he is fine but he doesn't like getting in, we are working on that) :) Have a great week everyone!

Ah, I love the Domingo puppies. I can see some of Alana in Myra's pretty face. :)

Boo for the cottage cheese and rice diet. :( Fullerton will certainly be feeling better soon, I know it!

I can not get over how cute he is! Sounds like he did very well on his birthday outing. Sorry to hear that his diahrea is back though. Hobbs was one of those that battled it for a month straight!

Don't worry too much about him not getting in the car. Hobbs couldn't for a long time, and then one day he just did it by himself!

Lisa and Ellie said...

Oh dear - Hope Fullerton feels better soon. That's no fun.

I just love the pic of him sitting under Myra. That's uber cute!

He looks like the sweetest boy! And, the birthday hat is just adorable.

Happy 3 month day!

Looks like Fun! Hopefully his tummy starts feeling better! :)

Great job Fullerton! Yes my dachshund puppy and Midnight weren't too keen on getting in the car at first, but once she (midnight) got bigger she was fine with it.

Lani said...

He is sooo cute! oohh you forget just how tiny they are you just wanna squish him, time flies. It is pretty crazy today he's a pup tomorrow he's graduating.

Love the birthday hat.

Ahh Myra reminds me a little bit of Spike with her bright red rudolph nose! :) Fullerton is getting big, happy three months to him! We feel your pain with the diarrhea, we're still crossing our fingers that Tahoe and Burgess are over it....Good luck on knocking that out. ;)

Becky said...

They are so cute! Hope Fullerton will be feeling better soon

Emily, Suede, Burgess, and Tahoe said...

He is just too adorable, and yay for a successful first outing.

And as Kelsey said... we feel your pain!! Burgess quite literally went to the vet every week from 12 weeks to 6 months. And Tahoe we were lucky... every week from 12 weeks to 4 1/2 months. Encouraging thoughts ;) Anyway, good luck!! Hope Fullerton gets rid of his icky bug!
