Fred the Newf: Eleven Weeks Old

Fred came home just over a week ago.

Today, Fred is an eleven week old Newfoundland puppy.

I admit, Fred’s first week was not always easy.

Fred needed a lot of love his first week in a new environment.

Fred wants to be a lap dog.

If he could, he would cuddle with me all day long.

I don’t think Fred realizes how big he is going to be.

Yesterday, I left Fred alone in his crate for two hours.

Fred escaped.

I’m not sure how he did it, because when I came home his crate was latched shut.

Does Fred have opposable thumbs hidden somewhere?

In my absence, Fred wreaked havoc – as only a puppy can do.

In fact, when I walked back into the house Fred was eating one of my photography books.

I’m pretty sure Fred is just in a hurry to learn as much as he can about photography?

Fred thinks he can learn photography by digesting books about it.

(A lot of people think that too!)

I think Fred’s favorite thing, his first week home, was getting to lick the tupperware container which held remnants of cooked pumpkin.

Fred LOVES pumpkin.

It’s the craziest thing.

Fred also likes the Santa Ana winds.

The winds haven’t been really strong, but because I live in a canyon they’ve been noticeable.

Fred wants to stay outside in the wind for hours and hours.

He likes to chase all the blowing leaves.

There’s only one problem …

The winds give Fred a bad hair day.

    LOL Bad hair day….he’s so darn cute with his windswept hair! 🙂

    You need to set up a puppy cam next time you leave so we can watch him work his magic! 😉

      I should.
      I don’t think I’ll ever figure out how he got out of the crate and re-latched it.

      Yes, it is.
      His breeder told me he just LOVES it so I got some.
      It’s funny how crazy he is for it.
      It’s very good for puppy tummies!

    Aw! He probably misses cuddling with his litter mates. One thing for sure, Fred is obvious a genius type dog to be able to not only escape but to re-lock the crate. haha! I think I would be happy that my couch was still in one piece.

      I’m sure he does miss his siblings.
      The first week is a big adjustment.
      He is enjoying all the one-on-one tummy rubs he’s getting at our house though!
