Hi Rhonda and Stephanie
Just wanted to let you know that “Pup”, “Cody”, “Rupert”-Ru…yes undecided on the name…and we have tried many -- the neighborhood children call him Cody and I call him Pup with the occasional days of Rupert and Ruu.
There is not a final answer -- Despite our failing in the name department--
This puppy is extraordinary and wonderful.
After leaving the farm in Iowa, driving a couple of hours to a great little airport in Wisconsin , flying into Chicago, ( delayed flight out) so Miami connection was missed, spent the night in puppy friendly hotel in downtown Miami and finally arriving in Birmingham 36 hrs after leaving Iowa. This puppy had no accidents on any plane or in any airports!! He is a super hero!!
Also had many requests( from flight staff, hotel managers ) for photo opportunities.
Vet check was excellent; one day later, we came home and played with the flowers…then 2 days after this we had a visit from half brother Murphy (Ina/Silas 2016).
They played for hours. Sadly Murphy had to move on to his new home in Charleston S.C.
So the next 6 weeks brought many adventures:
“Pup “ “Cody” “Ru”-pert has favorite things… in no particular order , flowers, digging, children, mirrors, helping in the garden, water, bird stalking ( has not captured one –yet) new adventures, eating bugs /plant/sticks/rocks/feathers/Kleenex etc, BUT no fingers…actually does not bite people at all, loves breakfast lunch & dinner and his Kennel. (go figure)
You were correct he loves to work for food ( we are using the Life’s Abundance pumpkin/berry treats)
I do believe his favorite part of the day is training ( 15-20 mins/day) concentrating on puppy skills. Then lots of fun play.
At 13.5 weeks he follows verbal and hand signal commands for sit, down , up , wait---he is now able to wait 90 seconds ( have not tried longer )
He will also wait while I leave his sight around a corner, behind a tree…he is very good at recall but needs work especially if there are exciting distractions –improving everyday. He sits before entering or leaving doors to house!!!
We are very proud of him .
15 week shots are due this week and then we continue to expand his adventures .
We Love Our Super Hero!
Thank You !!
