Well someone really likes snow!

We got about four inches of the white stuff here in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn this morning, and Kirby is having the time of his life.

Hope you are having a good day wherever you are — with or without snow. Or puppies.

The Kirby Era At 60 Days

Two months with a puppy (he’ll be four months old on Monday) seems a lot longer. Much of that is sleep deprivation, but there you go.

We love the little guy. Even if he’s not so little anymore.

The biting? No so much. But he’s still a baby. And he’s teething.

 

An Early Christmas Present

This was Kirby when we first met him, at 5 weeks old.  He’s tripled in size since then, and we’re delighted he was our early Christmas present. Hoping your holidays are equally fun, but with considerably less rambunctiousness. And fewer pieces of furniture chewed on.

Kirby At Three Months

Kirby is 14 weeks today, and nearly 30 lbs. No bathroom incidents in over a week, and he’s sleeping through the night without trips outside.

One Month With Kirby

And what a month it’s been!

Kirby, our  Golden Retriever puppy is now tipping the scales at 24 lbs. He’s 87% absolutely adorable, 13% total terror. Or do I have those percentages backwards?

Anyway, we love the little guy, and are counting the days (T-minus 21!) until he gets his final shots and can start frolicking with other doggies. He’ll be three months old this Saturday, and those paws suggest he’s going to be a big dog. What could possibly go wrong?

Our First Week With Kirby

Kirby’s first trip to the vet (with us) went well. They seem to adore him and lab results from his (ahem) output were all negative for parasites and other nasty stuff. He’s a good little dog who won’t be so little for long, so I’m determined to take a lot more photos of him when he’s still a baby. Speaking of which, this is the first shot that comes close to capturing just how cute he really is. We definitely lucked out with this puppy.
