Meet Forrest - New Puppy Picture Overload
Forrest has been home 1 week today, and I've taken more photos of him than I've probably taken in the past year of my family. Forrest turns 9 weeks old this Saturday. We got him right at 8 weeks. He was just a total cuddle bug the first few days home. I'm not sure what happened to that puppy, because now we have quite the daredevil little wild guy who loves to bite...a lot! He makes up for his orneriness by being so cute and he still likes to cuddle occasionally, but not like he did the first few days home.
He's totally got me figured out and when alone acts totally different around Tony than he does with me. It's kind of funny to compare notes on his behavior differences. He is already sitting on command so well. He's a great little boy.
Here are some pictures of Forrest from his first week home.
On the ride home from the breeder.
I loooove playing with boots so much that I sometimes forget that I'm outside to potty.
Cuddling with his favorite dinosaur toy.

I love your photos!! i was just looking through puppy pics of my cavavie rotolo, who is now 1 1/2 , and i have several of the same pics of ro that you have of your puppy! you think your taking a lot of photos now wait until he goes to the dog park for the first time or creates a huge mess... not that its funny in the moment but when a lil pup distrosse a whole roll of toilet paper and pulls all of the trash out of the bathroom trashcan in a 2hours... after the shock and tears, you can't help but take a thousand pictures lol. i will say this ... there are more photo's on my camera/ phone of rotolo then anyone else, i use to think it was sad but I'm sure you will soon understand. congrats on your new puppy!!

Wow. He looks so young. Cavaliers mature a lot slower than some dogs. It is better to wait until they are 12 weeks old to take them home. But he sure is a cutie and good luck with him.

Love the photos!!! He is SUCH a cutie but WOW he is tiny! I'm surprised the breeder let him go so tiny & young. Most breeders prefer to hold on to them until 10-12 weeks. Gives them lots of socialization with there litter mates to learn basic dog skills that they need. It can also help reduced the risk of certain health issues.
Enjoy his puppy years because they grow so fast!

Hmm...not sure about us getting him at 9 weeks. She kept us updated every week on how he was doing, and told us no earlier than 8 weeks, but chose to wait 1 more. There were 6 in his litter. He was the second smallest, but the littlest boy was soooo much smaller than him. Tiny guy The biggest was a female and she was so much bigger and stronger than the rest & always just wanted to beat up on the little ones. She is gorgeous though. Very pretty girl. We got him from a well known and respected AKC judge. So, I'm hoping she knew what she was doing. He's doing great, eating all his food, very few accidents & can sit, stay and of course beg, doesn't cry in his kennel at night, and he's already getting bigger! Here's one from this morning. Cuddled up next to me after we had to potty at 5am
