Hi Lynn and Jim,
Sunny after playtime
I hope you guys are doing well! Can you believe the puppies are 2 months old today? We are feeling so blessed with Wrigley Sunny! He is an absolute joy. The kids love him to pieces and he is living up to his name as he really wiggles with excitement every morning when he sees each of us and throughout the day.
It is hard to believe that we have almost had him for 2 weeks. We all can’t imagine life without him! He is sleeping well in his crate right by our bed. Usually we put him in about 10:30 and he sleeps until about 6:45. He has learned that sit is his way to say please and the kids have all been great about ignoring jumping and standing like a statue if he jumps. The second he sits and stops jumping we love and praise him excitedly. He is doing such a good job! And he is so eager to please. He has such a sweet disposition and loves to meet new people. Those tail wags just melt me!
There are already a few games we all love to play with Wrigley. He has a frog toy (much like the snake toy at your house) that is his favorite. He also loves playing blocks with the kids. He sits (great practice and I have to credit Joe with this game!) and then one of us builds a tower. Then we say okay. He barks at it and then knocks it down. Here he is crawling into the blocks and not a few seconds later he fell asleep in the block box! Too adorable!
And now he's tired!
He has a pretty good idea where to go potty. We got out the same door every time and say potty. Then once he starts going potty we say potty again once. Then we reward him for a treat. We miss here and there… but always our fault. With three kids coming and going sometimes little accidents happen because we lose track of time and don’t realize he is sniffing around and sending us signals. We mostly have hardwood floors with area rugs which I rolled up and packed away for the next few months. That way I am not as stressed about those accidents.
Every night at dinner we go around and say what we are thankful for. Wrigley has been mentioned every single night since we got him. Thank you for loving on this little guy from the beginning. You can tell he had a wonderful start to life and we love that we get to have this furry family member in our life!
Thank you! Thank you!
Michelle, Joe, Josh, Luke, and Kayla
