    Maxxis... . . . .

    Meet MAXXIS !!

    My new care giver, Im not sure yet who needs to take care of who, I guess well figure that out when we both work out what the job description is

    Chur..

    There's a MAXXIS in my/his kitchen

    Already settled in and chewing on a rag toy and his basket, hes pee'd only on the floor so easy to clean but we have set him up nicely now, and its routine time now every hour out for wee walk to his tree, hopefully one day he'll work out what its for and why we go there

    Having a wee snuggle

    Opps a MAXXIS breaking loose

    A MAXXIS at the keyboard

    Finally the little MAXXIS has gone to sleep, first night together hes already farting and snoring in bed


    His Mum, a terrier cross Dad was a big Lab..nice dog great personality real sad to see her boy go I think ..


    Ya know ya never pick a dog, it picks you, a dog was on my list of thingswhich Ive created, its a big one for many things, Ive had with all my time, and while Ive thought about it I wasn't looking, but as life does when that happens opportunity knocks and so it did here too, it feels right, he chose me and its been full on since hes snoring on the bed and Im still too overtired to sleep, wired is an understatement, no doubt he'll wear me out though!

    Hes gonna be a great runner one day 2, for the Spot and RFX

    Thanx guys appreciate!

    Hes been very ggod so far and seems to be settling in well not causing me any grief with the body so looks like the right one picked me hes got a very calm nature though he did want to have a play with the duster,just left him at it, after his first pee outing in the middle of the night, which was all good cause I needed it too, so far we have watches sycronised

    Cute pup you have there.

    It's always fun to have a pooch around the house and on the trail.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    Sweet! It's alway cool to have a four legged companion around (especially if they fart!). Enjoy man, hopefully the house training goes well...

    happy trails...

    Thanx old man and Squash/Squish Im confused now yer both right it is fun sorta forgot how much attention they need but thats all good, he has a short burst then wnats to sleep bit like me so we on the same page, hes so funny he wants to chew or paly with anything the he toddles of to his basket with whatever is his latest thing and puts it in the basket as if to say I own this now, and Im gonna chew the **** out of it when I want, oh my crocs were the latest lol
    Yeah hes right up there on the farting and snoring now if only i can get hiom to use the pee tree The house training wil be half the fun, I will no doubt lear heaps.

    Chur guy's.

    To say I have not had the smile of my face since yesterday is an understatment,[I think we both feel the same way] we seemed to have bonded very quickly too and hes totally at home as long as Im close I think my alone time is now over

    you breeding dogs there CC, sheesh I would love more but I think ones all I can handle, and thats just the farting

    Nice names, I don't need to call this one much @ the mo he just follows me everywhere so far, if he does that on the trail eventually then I'll be very happy, Ive seen how some dogs take there owners for rides not the other way around and spend all day looking for them

    Some morning piccs

    Little bugga already has his basket full of everything he can get his nose into

    Awesome TA! Black dogs rock. So is MAXXIS a Hookworm (hope not), Ignitor ( possibly worse), an Excavator (watch the garden) or High Roller (great AM trail dog)??

    Chur cutty, I'm not fully sure yet, but we had some fun time observing em in the litter and seeing the dynamics etc, hes a thinker and his own personality and also quite calm, though if Im out of site hes got a whine when he wants to, I think thats more about being in a new enviroment and taken from mum and his familiar surroundings , I mean we bonded and I get the sense he wanted that, almost like he was ready too with the right person, but he still needs that comfort in his new world.

    All great personality combo's but I think hes got a bit of minion in him swampthing and maybe ardent, not sure of his gardening skills as yet hes still hestitant to go loose, hes stil not keen on going to the pee tree but thats just time, we going slow, I got heaps of time so we can go nice n easy hes like the bed so thats good its the warmess place and best for me to relax recover from too big days in a row, Im pretty beat..

    I agree I like black dogs too, better when they get muddy too, they don't stain lol, definitley nice to have a pal, we got some routines going but hes still got a ways to get used to them, and Im cooking him up some chicken mince and brown rice mix for dinner tonight, but he hooks into anything, he had chicken necks for breaky and waffed those down, and we both have a weakness for ginger nutz

    Awesome TA! Labs (or mix, whateva) make great trail dogs. I took mine out today (Australian Shepherd)d and poor thing had a foxtail in her foot for awhile before I noticed it. She was subtly limping and a little slower than usual so I chcked her feet. They are a lot of fun and great companions.

    Good luck on the potty training. I crate my dogs at night when I'm training them. It goes a lot faster and easier.

    Chur Tom, great to know they make great trail dogs, hes got such an aweome personality, today has been a total hoot, real busy, games manily him playing with my socks towles and anything he can rip apart duster, some naps and lots of potty training, but so far hes been very good considering hes just been taken away from his home, we are best of mates already.

    So youve given me more confidence I made the right decision! Hope your dog's foot heals up quick, and I think ya bang on will be a great companion, and good all round. once hes totally happy here we will start extending further from home to the letter box but at mo keep him close to build his confidence!

    Yeah the potty training we are both learning I know when he wants to go so Im ready to get him into the kennal which has a tray floor and I full it with paper so he only messes that then I burn it in the pot belly fire its very cold here at mo so good fue

    What do you mean crate them, where? I need tips, good friends have leant me this awesome kennel and a book about raising dogs, Im not a noob but there's always things to learn esspecially when it your own and hes only 8 weeks.

    He won't pee or poo outside he just looks like Ive out him in the dog box no pun and sulks a bit then wants to go inside and pee, which he does imeadiatley in the pen, Im trying to get him into a routine each hour to visit the pee tree but its new for both of us

    Thanx Tom appreciate the coments and any tips!

    Chur buddy, yeah was a big decision, thanks for all ya support, I also had some help from some other close freinds, who hooked me up, took me to see the litter and just gave me some good support, I never felt doubt in my own mind, I have to step that up now and this helps! but its hard to gauge yourself sometimes esspecially in my recovery.

    This all happened by opportunity, it was in my plan and was thinking about it but had not organised anything, it just fell into my lap, which sometimes is best, he's a real beauty, personality wise, look, stance, attitude, intelligence, cheekiness, I couldn't be happier.

    Weve been very busy together, just around the house, and hes been good with the house, but socks, brooms, dusters anything fluffy, are a target!

    I'm looking forward to in a few weeks getting him enrolled in puppy classes, see how I go, Ive got to fit swimming in somewhere

    Chur

    A couple more
    He loves his belly rubbed, best way to stop him in his tracks, quite amazing

    Sleeping like a log, he often has his nose right by my face or on it, he likes to be close, and hes been very good hardly wakes me up or disturbs me at all!
