Puppy School


Hi Steffi,

Ludo went to his first puppy training class today! He was soooo good! He was very nervous around the other dogs but as soon as treats were involved, he wasn’t phased. I’m sure he was confused what with all the treats, noises and poking and proding we were doing but he smiled stupidly through the whole thing. Thanks to Link, he was way ahead in the sit-and-stare-at-me-for-a-treat and we were able to hold his attention for a whole 15 seconds!

Next week he goes to class number 2 and a private lesson about leash walking with Link. He will graduate after he goes to 6 classes. Soon after that it will be time for his manly parts to go, and probably the cone of shame, but we aren’t telling him about that just yet ;P

PS you are owed a mini punishment because you forgot to hit publish, which I will think of after I’m done recovering from the tiny chickens in my brain.



Hi Steffi, here’s our new puppy Ludo! He likes to hoard tiny rocks so it’s quite an appropriate name and it sounds really adorbs next to Link.

Here he is making his first poop! In the house…but I still had to document it!

A doge face.

With his brother Einstein, who is much more chill and has floppy ears. 20150630_184121

He fell in love with Grayson’s Magic card backpack while we were in Flagstaff for the 4th. He made it his curl up and sleep spot.

He’s learning so quickly from Link. Already sits automatically when he wants something. 20150705_072611

Today was the first day he and Link played together! Linky has been a cranky old man since he first got here. I’m sure I’ll get a cute picture of them cuddling together soon. But with ups, there are downs. He’s been so good about only doing his business outside, but today he’s peed three times and pooped in the house! He’s pretty pooped out now though. Puppy life.

This little blue heeler/Aussie mix puppy is our new family member! Linky is gonna have fun with his new little brother 🙂 His name is Franklin right now, but we’re thinking he needs a nerdier name to go along with Link and Midna. We’re taking suggestions!!

What is my name?!
