Pao is 43 days old today. In the 10 days he’s lived with me his weight has gone from 1.3 kg to 2.6 kg. He is obviously doing well!
If go out, I can hear him crying before he goes to sleep again. I think that makes me more nervous than it makes him. When I get home I play with him a lot. Yesterday I left what I was doing early when I heard him crying and dashed home on the train, but by the time I got to the train station he was already quiet.
When I had my first puppy, Tao, 27 years ago, I didn’t have a WebCam or anything like that. I got home and he seemed happy to see me and that was it and we just went on. Too much knowledge now?
Sometimes I just need to go out and take care of things and be gone for a few hours.
I think he is coping OK though. We both need to learn to cope with this.
He still quite needy, and gets very melodramatic when he wants attention. He’s really good about the puppy toilet though. I’m impressed, considering his age. I would say 100% of the time he needs to poop he goes correctly into the puppy toilet, and maybe 85% of the time he’s spot on when he needs to pee, but he sometimes pees near the puppy toilet instead of in it.
While he has plenty of things to chew on, he doesn’t really distinguish between his chewing toys and my fingers. I would like to get him to not chew on me. It doesn’t really hurt, but eventually I know it will.
Here’s a video of him playing this morning.
