Bae is growing up!

This past weekend Bae cocked his leg for the first time, and today he went to the dog park for the first time where he tried to hump another dog for the first time. There have been a lot of first times recently!

I was proud of him today though. He was very responsive when I called him off from attempting to hump my friend’s older male chocolate lab. He still showed interest in wanting to mount Buddy, but all I had to do was tell him to leave it and he would. Such a good boy!

He still has a couple of months to go before I was planning on having him neutered. I’m not sure if I should just go ahead and have him neutered now or if I should still wait until the one year mark. The veterinarian never got back to me about whether it’s better to neuter cryptorchid puppies early, or if it doesn’t make a difference to wait until a year old.

Ugh, it is going to be a sad day when his best friend goes into heat!!! They won’t get to play together for a little while. Hopefully she goes into heat soon though because our advanced obedience class starts in November!

Almost! But not quite! He has horrible timing trying to catch balls and frisbees in the air… But at least he tries!

These two are so silly! Look at those teeth!
