9 weeks

Jake is 9 weeks old today and I can't beleive how much he's grown! He went to the vet and he now weighs 14.9 pounds. The vet said he will be gaining about 10 pounds a month.
His behavior is getting better..he understands the word 'no'. He's much better at entertaining himself with his toys.

8 weeks.

Jake has been home for two weeks now and he's getting used to our daily schedule. He spends about half of the day sleeping and the other half trying to get into things and chew on everything but his toys. He's a handful, but he's so darn cute!
From day 1 he has had the potty training thing down and he learned how to sit in about 5 minutes..we must have the smartest puppy ever!

He loves his Canidae!

Visiting the Danes..

This past weekend we took Jake to visit my parent's Great Danes. Here are some pictures that my dad took while we were there.

This is a good can tell he has a better quality camera than I do.

My dad found a tennis ball for him to chew on instead

The only good picture with the Danes because they were running around everywhere

More 7 week pictures...

7 weeks old!

Jake is 7 weeks old today. Things have been great since we got him! He still has not had one accident in the house and he sits in front of the back door when he has to go potty. He's also sleeping through the night...I didn't expect that to happen for a few weeks. My sister watches him during the day while we're at work and we're very thankful for that.
He's been to visit my parent's Great Danes a few times now and he's already bossing them around. Here are a few more pictures that I have.

He likes to get into small spaces

He moves around a lot when he sleeps

He loves to play with door stops..he hits it with his paws, growls at it, and barks at it

Here he is crawling under the bed..he won't be able to fit under there for long

He's home!!

We went to pick up Jake from the breeder yesterday. He's so adorable with blue/green eyes. The housetraining is going very well. We haven't had any accidents, he seems to already know where he's supposed to potty. Last night was pretty hard..he woke up several times to go outside and he was not happy going back into his crate..he thought it was time to play.

Here he is in the car on the way home...he did really well riding in the car and slept almost the whole time.

We had to stop for a potty break half way home..he wasn't too excited about walking on a leash..he thought it was a chew toy. His collar doesn't quite fit yet.

This is his first time in the house

His first time in the yard

He likes the dog bed we bought for him
