Update on the pet post

We have finally decided to bring home a Labrador Retriever pup from a breeder here. The pup is one of six delivered a week back. We will have to wait another six weeks before the pup can call our home its own.

The kids have decided to call it Bolt. Shadow as suggested by my son was vetoed by my girl. My husband  probably would have been happier with an Indian name, I am okay with Bolt.

Please write in tips for training and making the pup feel at home without over doing it. This will be my first time living with any other species than a human (apart from fish who live in tanks).

At times I still feel a bit scared of living in the same house with a pet dog and not knowing what it is trying to communicate. Any suggestions are welcome. Balan please help. I have time till August.

You certainly will see the new species different and dependent on you. Also be prepared to get much unrequited love.

I guess six weeks is quite early to be weaned from the mother. Ideally leave it with the mother for 60 days at least.

And bring it after the necessary vaccinations etc. Consult a good Vet and he will guide you with the time table for vaccination.
It becomes a member of the family from then on, I mean from about sixty days once it is weaned.
Make sure the vaccinations are done on time. I lost a retriever pup when I trusted the breeder that he vaccinated it , And later it succumbed to Para -Distemper virus a, fatal illness.

Congratulations!

The first thing to remember - he is the youngest member of your family; he is your child.

Labs grow to big dogs, are very energetic and boisterous. They need fresh air and exercise. If you are living in an apartment, a smaller breed would be a better option.

Dogs demand and give lots of love. I am sure you and your family can stand that.

Like Anil said, ensure the right vaccinations, keep a record of it.

Don't worry about communication - you are about to learn a new language! The language of love, faith and trust...

And if possible watch the movie 'Marley' with your kids!! :-)

And Sujata, a request; remove this 'captcha'. There are other options to keep spam away.

That's a sweet pup! Can I hold him? :)

Balachandran V has already told you all you need to know.

Would like to add one more. Don't forget to give him a hug, scratch behind his ears, and pat his head, daily. :)

sujata said...

@Anil Thanks a lot. I spoke to my husband and he agrees that six weeks is too early to get the pup away from the mother, we have decided to wait eight weeks. The vaccinations we will definitely ensure that the pup gets them. Is there any harm if the pup gets a vaccine more than once?

@Balan Thanks :) We decided on the pet because we have shifted to a villa which has a lot of space inside and also has a big backyard. So hopefully the pup should get sufficient area to move around.

@Nikita thanks :)

@Sneha Thanks for the wishes. Son is super excited, just cannot wait. I really hope the excitement stays on.

@Destiny's child I surely will. Thanks a lot:)

Congratulations... !!!!!!!
You don't need to be scared..! Feed him with some fish curry.. once in a week. He will feel at home. This is a norm in Kerala households... :)

Sonu said...

Yay!!!..Bolt..the best name for that puppy..Only thing missing is a thunder sign on him.No wonder your girl chose that name.Even in the movie,it's a girl character who has 'Bolt'.

Sanand said...

Bold move and you've given your pet a perfect name. Bolt's awesome.

The device exerts traction pressure within your penis, stretching it and this leads to an increase in its sizegenetics during a few months.Now remains the question of pain or gain, it is usually definitely a gain for you. Though initially, you can feel some discomfort because of the traction though it could not last for long. You could see an increase of up to 3 inches on your penis length and girth while using usage of penile extenders. Now finally, the verdict - they can indeed be efficient, safe and easier. When you are a man who enjoys therapeutic male sizegenetics, it's important to know something with regards to different styles of sizegenetics that are available.
