Encouragement for new V owners -- less than 5 months!
Imagine my surprise when we brought home our 11 week pup and he was crazy - shark attacks, biting, nipping, jumping... we had our ups and downs and some serious moments of "what have we done..." but Wilson is just shy of 5 months and is a total love bug and the best boy! Something clicked in the last 2 weeks or so and he just "gets" it. Whether or not he's able to always do what we want him to do or expect of him, he at least can now be calmed down, can be snapped out of his crazy fits, and most importantly, he's truly molded himself into our family and our hearts. I love this crazy dog more than I could have imagined loving a dog. Even my husband who has had many dogs loves Wilson -- like no dog he's ever known or been around (first time V owners).
So, to all the newest puppy owners, the first few months are tough and I am sure we have our trials to come, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel!
