Albin sleeps like a log, something I’m not used to when it comes to puppies 🙂 I had to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night and he thought it was a rather bad idea and tried to stay where he was but I know that as soon as I’ve walked away he would most likely had followed and newly awaken puppies wants to pee. So up he went and outside as well. I was however in a hurry so I brought him inside a bit too early and he punished me for waking him up by pooping twice in the cottage 🙂 🙂
I don’t think they have trained him at all with becoming housebroken but he’s getting it rather quickly but my experience with boy puppies is that they are more difficult to get housebroken than the girls. Sune is very torn when it comes to Albin, he can play with him a lot but suddenly he really can’t stand him 🙂 Treats go a long way though so I’m not especially worried. Nova is very concerned though. If Albin sounds worried she’s the first one there but every time she wants to play with him Sune sort of takes over and plays with her instead.
The morning was quite pleasant, it wasn’t as cool as I had hoped but 10C (50F) was just enough to keep the flies calm. The sun shone and the air was absolutely still, it feels like the humidity is high but it isn’t, it is actually very low 🙂 I guess it’s the absence of wind that makes it feel like that. The temperature is rising and we’ll get it just as hot today as we had yesterday they say. Clouds cover the sky at the moment but as soon as they fly away it will become a bit nasty.
We walked our usual route and after a while I connected Albin’s leash to Sunes harness. I can’t say that Sune seemed to love it but he did walk slower and made sure Albin had a chance to smell the surroundings too. Next walk I’ll connect Albin to Nova instead and see how that works. I had bought Albin a tiny harness too but it still was too big 🙂 I’m guessing that it will fit in two weeks or so but it would be great if it fitted earlier. I’ve never really liked to have a collar around the neck because if the dog pulls or the owner would pull the leash a bit too hard the neck can get injured. No risk of that yet though, he’s not strong enough and I like to walk a bit slow 🙂
It is time to take a walk again before the sun starts to shine through the clouds and it will be too hot for a small puppy to walk around. After that I’ll make a big pot of tea with lots of honey and ginger, my throat is sour again, oh the joy of having a summer cold 🙂
Have a great day!
