CODY AS A PUPPY
Just thought I would let you know that Cody slept on Barb's lap all the way home. Tinkled outside, had a bath, played with some of his new toys ( he loves the rawhide ), went in and out the doggie door several times and passed out asleep in his bed. The bed has an afghan in it and he found it on his own! He's sound asleep now. One happy family!
I forgot to ask you how often and how much have you been feeding him? I need to know so I can keep him on the same schedule for a while.
I went to your web page and you really do good work! LOOKS GREAT!
Thanks, Frank firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks again Ann. Sounds like I will be up early. He's having a great time. Likes to chase us and bark at us. He acts like he is hiding behind some thing and tries to jump out and scare us by barking. Of course we knew where he was but we go along with his little game. A little personality of his own. He wet outside 2 times and then pooped outside. He is smart!!! Boy, a lot of poop for such a small guy!
Cody is doing fine this morning. You can get the doggie doors at a place like Home Depot or Dr. Pet's center. They make them special for sliding glass doors. They are and expensive one time expense but last forever. We have had ours over 15 years and have just had to replace the clear plastic door a few times. They are great investments. We have been holding Cody a lot and he fell asleep on me in the recliner last night. Then we put him back to bed around 2 a.m. and he was OK until he wanted fed at 8:30. It was funny because a little while ago Barb and I were in the kitchen and Cody started barking in the family room. He was barking at the empty recliner! He wanted someone to sit down and hold him. He wet one time on paper last night before we put him down for the night. Other then that he has pottied outside 3 times and peed outside the rest. We try to take him out about every hour or so and he does his business in seconds and heads for the doggie door. We make him use the doggie door to get use to them. We have to lift the clear rubber a little to encourage him. As soon as he sees it he's in. He is fast!!!!!!Frank
P.S., You need to get some of those cheap raw hide sticks. He loves them and chews on one for a long while. Cheap toy that's good for their teeth and keeps them busy.
Just wanted you to know Cody is doing fine. Right now he is in the family room asleep in my recliner. I think he took it over. About 30 minutes ago I heard him barking and he was trying to jump up into the recliner as that is where we always hold him. I picked him up and put him in the recliner and he was asleep in less than 30 seconds. He also has a teddy bear that's bigger then he is and he has fallen in love with it. He drags it all around with him and fights with it constantly then he will fall asleep with his head laying on the teddy bear. What a character! He went 8 hours last night in his room and no accidents. Only had a couple since we had him.
Hope you are fine. All the best!Frank
Cody is doing great. He is completely house trained now and we are having a great time. I took this picture this evening 7/2/99. Thought you would like to see it. I will go ahead and attach 2 pictures. This is HIS teddy bear. Look at his eyes saying " don't mess with my teddy bear ". He goes in and out all the time through his doggie doors. We leave them in at night and no accidents at all. Barbara usually gets up early in the A.M. and lets him go out. He is really smart and a lot of fun and love.
Hope you are doing well. Keep in touch! All the best, Frank

Thought you would like to see this picture I just took with my computer viewcam of Cody (Sept.09,99) in front of my Ham radio equipment. He is doing fine and has became a part of the family.
All the best, Frank
