Hi, my name is Janice and I'm new here. I'd like to introduce Reuben, He is 11 weeks old now and we have had him a week.
Apart from the neverending piddling and pooping he is a real star.
Goes all night in his crate with no noise and no wees. :thmbsup:

Welcome Janice, you will find this site invaluable, as I have. Don't worry, the pooping and peeing eventually stops.:D
Your puppy is really the cutest little fella ever, he is so sweet, I just want to give him a cuddle! :hug:

A big welcome to you and Reuben. He is adorable. Hang in there, eventually the never ending need for trips outside will slow and you will enjoy your pup even more.

Our Abigail is almost 10 months and is almost house trained. I'm still watching her as we allow her more freedom in the house.

that is just so sweet, keep an eye on him with the pooping and peeing, it does take quite a long while, be gentle and kind and he will reward you a thousand times over. di

Hello to you both! Reuben is truly gorgeous, with looks like that he will get away with anything. The house training is a frustrating process but it does end eventually, something I have to keep reminding myself as I'm still going thro the process with Charlie, just keep patient, they are only babies!!:p

Hang in there, I'm at home with an 8 wk old Blem Girl named Anna and we are outside after every nap and ever hour or so. I can't wait till she is a couple more months old and I don't have to take her out at six, but I'm really enjoying this puppy stage right now.:wggle:

How can you not love a face like that!!!!! AWWWWW. What an awesome first post Janice! icon_welcome to you and Rueben. You will love this board - I have learned so much from everyone here. Is this your first cav?? Rudy is my first...I am now BEGGING my OH for a tri-color.

love your picture...I have 2 pups, one 10mo and one almost 4 months and I'm also dealing with constant trips outside as well as watching her every second of the day when she is out and about with us...potty training can be challenging at times, but as others have mentioned --- so worth the loving, adorable, fun puppy kisses and puppy stage...

congrats on your new puppy!

BTW, took me almost ten months for my girl to learn "potty training" but my boy it only took a few days :eek: :eek:. It depends on the dog i suppose.

Thanks all, he is my little poppet. I have never ever loved a dog this much!!! Might be because all my other dogs have been outside or at least on the ground... whereas this little mite gets cuddles on the sofa and lays round my neck!!!

Ive softened in my old age! Or it might be that my boys are now 21 & 18 and mummy needed cuddles!! :D :lotsaluv:

How much weight has he gained since you got him and what does he now weigh?

Heather R

Janice
5th May 2009, 07:54 PM
Im sorry,, I have no idea!!! Ive not weighed him. His legs are much longer and he can actually run forwards fast. When we first got him he was a little barrell with 4 stumps at the corners and he toddled!! :l*v:

Oh my gosh, I was grinning at your description of him. I remember those days. How precious they look!

Janice. I also remember when I first saw our Abigail I thought that she was so tiny. I was almost afraid to pick her up.

ow at almost 10 months she is the Queen of our house according to my husband. She really has funny ways and stands her groung at 12 pounds versus our 70 pound Golden:jump:

Enjoy your pup:thmbsup:

Hi Janice lovely to see you here :D {Mrs Happy Haggis here!!}

Reuben looks wonderful, what a wee darling.

Glad you are enjoying him - and keep going with the photos, they are fabulous.

What is the backdrop in the last one please? Is it a sheet?

Hi Nicki

he is on a white duvet and about 8 feet behind is a white sheet on the wall. two strobes behind him onto the wall and one at the front just to the camera's right and a bit above.

sounds complicated but im sure trev can sort it out!!!

Thanks Janice that's really helpful - we're always experimenting with backdrops and lighting, so it's great to get new ideas.
