LOL, believe it or not, he LOVES to cuddle! Currently he's lying down on my bed, but the poor thing is tuckered out. Um, let me explain...my bed is a sleeping bag because the air doesn't reach into my bedroom. He's aware this isn't my usual sleeping place, but to be honest, I don't mind the cuddling, especially since I'm afraid of the dark. LOL, at least I feel some comfort with him next to me. Hopefully, by the time I've 40, I'll out grow that!

He did well with several other dogs today. Since he wanted to romp so badly with the other dogs, I allowed it, but there were several of us watching him. I was surprised to note that he was extremely gentle with the other dogs. He seems to be aware of his size. Is that unusual? Still no 'absolute' word on what he is. I can't believe the shelter was willing to put him down

Hearsong, he does have a high energy level, so believe me when I say we go on several walks per day. He also loves to snuggle and play with me. We do play 'tuggy,' but I usually wind up with the toy. He will be taught to open doors using nylon rope, so for now, we're making it a game. He sulks if I won't play with him (like now!) I love looking at all the other photos of dogs too

LOL, chocolate puppy, he reminds me of a bear too! Actually, most of the time, he's pretty mellow. I currently have a bad hip infection, and even though we play, he seems to've picked up on what's okay and what's not. When I'm really in pain, he lays down beside me, puts his head on my shoulder and is just plain patient!

With it so hot (102), I do worry about taking him outside. Since I can't walk too far at the moment, our walks are much shorter than I'd like. However, since he enjoys retrieving his toys once they're thrown, I know that is a great way for him to play and for me to remain fairly still. When he brings back the toy, I stick my hands in his mouth, quietly say 'drop it,' and when he does, I toss it again for him to lope after. He gets out some of his pent-up energy this way.

I'm trying to think of other games that will instill some learning, a little at a time, of course. I still can't believe that before Charlie came into my life that I was a 'cat' person only and not willing to take in a dog. I sure missed out on a lot. I still adore cats, but am highly allergic to them.

I've still discovered that Charlie can hold his poop for as long as he wants. Out of curiosity, do any of you give a certain amount of time before you bring the go back in? Basically, the dog can choose to go or hold it a while longer? I'm trying to be gentle, but I don't need him to have complete control over me either. What's the opinion here? Thanks!
Kathy & Charlie

Well, Seamus doesn't feel inclined at all to hold his poo. Even if he is in his crate, he will poo if he has the slightest urge (I know this because he did it in the car)! That was one smelly mess, I tell you.

Kirby can hold his bladder for a while, but on long walks he will poo five times or more! His record at the moment is nine times in one walk.

When I take Seamus out and I know it's time for him to poo, I will wait a maximum of 30-40 minutes. If he doesn't poo, we go back inside and he does to his crate to wait another 20 minutes before going out again. Kirby, on the other hand, since he is house-trained, if he doesn't stop to poo, I don't worry because he'll poo on the next walk whenever he's ready.

So, since Charlie is an adult (and as long as he's not having accidents in the house), I would say it'll come when it comes. Kirby has gone a day without wanting to poo. Sometimes doggies are like that.

My dogs can go 8-9 hours without going potty(much longer than I can!)I try not to make them wait that long though. As far as pooping mine well somedays they poop once, some days they poop twice.
