Good Morning Stephanie and Ronda, I wanted to give you an update on Hawkeye. He is doing EXCELLENT. We sure do love him a lot. We go out for socialization and rides on a daily basis. He loves going to the Nursing home. We start puppy classes on November 11th. He is also fully housebroken and goes to the door and “rings a bell” when he needs to go out and also “sits” by the door. He has learned, sit, and come very well. We are working on “down” and “stay”. Everyone that meets him absolutely loves him.
His last vet check was a few days ago and he received another puppy shot series. One more set to go of those. Our vet also started him on heart worm monthly. He now weighs 22 pounds, 😊 and is eating 3 cups of food a day.
I ordered more food and another bottle of the deodorizer spray. That isn’t for Hawkeye, I didn’t want you to get alarmed if you saw the order, one of my friends got a new 7 week old puppy and we are giving it to her with a puppy toy as a gift.
We are so glad that God brought all of you and Hawkeye into our life, he is already the star of the family at our house and in the neighborhood. The neighborhood kids come down to play with him in the back yard several times a week. It wears all of them out.
Richard thought I should tell you guys, Hawkeye has been totally potty trained for several weeks. He ONLY had a total of 3 accidents in the house. (1 the first night he came home, and 2 other ones in the 1st week; however both of those were our fault as he was at the door!). Of course, I am home and so I work with him a lot, take him out after he plays, as soon as he gets up from sleeping, right after eating, etc. He also goes with us everywhere, we take car rides of at least 40 minutes every day, going to the drive through at the bank, in the car wash, post office, nursing home, beauty shop, etc. Pretty much everywhere I go, he goes, if he can!
Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you need me to write anything about you guys or you can use any of the information I have shared with you on your website. We recommend and praise you guys to EVERYONE. People can really tell the difference between our pup and others and they love him. Our vet at Kindness Pet clinic in Indianola is already singing Hawkeyes praises. He is so well behaved every time we go, they want to keep him. I told them no way! 😊
Have a good weekend.
