Wow!  She's adorable!  Good thing you have Drake.  She's going to need someone to chase off the boys sooner than you think!

She is sooooo cute!  There aren't many puppies that tempt me but Leos sure do it!  I'd have a hard time saying no to that face too!

It's only funny if you don't have to live with a poop eater.  Jaeger was one for all of her 14 yrs.  We tried EVERYTHING including the packaged stuff from pet catalogs.  Nothing worked.  We just kept the yard picked up.  Eider used to do it a LOT until we changed food.  Now he only does it to cat poop  ::)  Still gross but at least I can control his access to cat poop.  Unless there is a specific allergy issue, Lamb and Rice is probably not the best choice.  Try another formula if you can or try a different protein source if there are allergies. 

I agree that one of the odor neutralizing products is a good idea.  Stress of moving may play in here too for sure.  Additionally, he's fairly young and in a new environment.  Treat him as you would a puppy to learn that outdoors is the place to go.  Every time he wakes up and after he eats it is time to go outside and do his business.  It is not abnormal for a dog in a new house to need a refresher course in what is acceptable behavior.  If another dog has peed in the house before, he may think that it is ok for him too.

That is soooo cute!  He was obviously comfortable enough to let you turn the lights on, go up and get MORE pics!!!!  At least you got to document the silliness :D  Thanks for sharing it!

That is so sweet!  I bet Cowboy has been telling him all about the visits and he knew he had to behave in order to get in on all the loving.  Hope the test goes well and just hope that Chester doesn't realize it isn't the real thing!  LOL!

That is so cute!  Do they often sleep touching each other like that?  They seem to enjoy their puppy pile.

I go against the grain here but I prefer to let them mature before really pushing the issue.  I crate for safety reasons, but I double crate, two crates pushed together.  One crate has the bedding, the other has papers.  If you can secure a room that would work too.  Don't withhold water.  That may cause more problems than it solves.  Take him outside any time he wakes up and right after he eats.  He's still a baby and his bladder can't hold it all night.  You either need to take him out during the night, double crate or plan on cleaning up a mess.  During the day when you are home, keep a safe area covered with papers.  He'll likely pick a favorite spot and then you can reduce the papers.  When you see him to to that spot, quickly take him outside.  He really will learn quickly, it is much a matter of learning to read his body language when he needs to go.  You can also "tether" him to you with a short leash so that you keep him with you at all times so you can monitor his behavior closely.  Relax, it seesm like it is taking forever but this too shall pass ;)

Poor Lucah!  I hope he gets to feeling better soon!  That's terrible that he got beaten up and that the other owners took so little care to control their dogs.

We don't do dog parks for a pile of reasons - first is that we live out in the country with TONS of room to walk and play and I have enough dogs that they are their own play group  ::)  The health and aggression issues would probably keep me away anyway if there was even a park close enough to visit.  The closest to me is about an hour away and I'm not even sure if it is up and running yet.  Finally, none of my dogs are good play group candidates anyway.  Carter doesn't seem able to read other dogs well so he rarely plays with dogs, Eider wants to dominate everyone (then again, maybe that is why Carter doesn't want to play with him) and Jesse gets too upset by change.
