Mutt Monday!!!

In honor of Fenway, I can finally participate in Mutt Monday!! I discovered Mutt Monday through my cousin Amy, who tells the tales of her insanely cute pup, Zoey! Here's some pictures of our little guy from today:
So Fenway feels safest between our FEET.  If we are walking around, he follows pretty closely.  As soon as we stop walking, he positions himself between our feet.  Here I am, cooking dinner, and Fenway standing guard (or seeking protection from his new, still unknown world!).
A close up of our little guy.
So Fenway decided that I was running around too much while I was trying to cook, so when Jason walked in, he kept Jason's socks company for a little while!  Isn't he cute?!

Fenway did FANTASTIC last night in his kennel cage (aka, his BED).  We put him to bed around 10, and he did cry and wimper for about 30 minutes.  But he curled up and went to sleep about 10:30 and slept ALL night.  Well, until 5 am.  But at 5, I sat in front of his bed and talked to him through the door for a few minutes, and he got quiet again and slept until 7!  What a great puppy!

We took him to the vet today and he officially weighs 3.3 pounds.  All of his health was in perfect condition, and all of the nurses loved him.  And Fenway loved his nurses!  I didn't want to watch his first set of shots in fear of it hurting, and him associating me with the pain.  So they took him into another room and brought him right back.  They said he didn't flinch, whine, or even MOVE.  What a tough boy we have!!  Tomorrow he goes back for them to trim around his eyes, his toenails, and his "potty patch."  We decided to let them trim him up the first time just so we could see how they did it, and then do it ourselves. Pictures of our cutie tomorrow, that's for sure!

Eh-I'm a psych major, I'm probably over analyzing. Some nurses tell new Mommies about not holding their babies, but to be the ones to pick them up so that they associate them with the comfort rather than the pain. I really have no idea if it extends to puppies lol.

wait, what?! you mean, nurses tell moms not to HOLD their babies but to pick them up only when they need something? is that right? hm. interesting idea. My babies will always be nuzzled close to me until they walk away :]

No, I mean during the time that they are getting shots-not on a daily basis! Sorry, I didn't make that clear. And that part in itself is just personal preference, some nurses believe that, others don't. But definitely only during shot time! :)

Awwww, he is so cute! Zoey lays between my legs and wraps her paws around my legs when I'm in the kitchen. Ed says she hugs me. lol
