First, he has the most insatiable appetite I have ever seen.
For being so little, Tebow absolutely loves to eat. He gets fed 3 times per day, and he tends to eat every meal like it’s his last. He can eat his whole meal within a couple minutes and he always comes begging for more. Him and his litter of seven brothers came from North Carolina with worms and bodies of skin and bones. I can’t help but be super proud of him every time he finishes his meals since he’s come so far and is growing into a strong and healthy puppy.
Second, he is so cheerful and likes to turn any little moment into playtime.
He is getting pretty good at fetch, and chews his bones, toys… and unfortunately my couch, our shoes and many of my cookbooks. It will definitely take time for him to realize what are his toys and what are not. He is only 12 weeks old and has a lot to learn, but he is so sweet natured and knows when he’s in trouble for being bad by putting his head down and crawling into a ball.
Third, he can sleep at the drop of a hat. It doesn’t matter who is around, if he is being held, or where he is at, the boy can literally pass out anytime and anywhere.
It’s been fun so far watching him grow and learn. However, he is a lot more to handle than I ever thought. He really is just like a baby, besides the whole potty training outside thing. He needs to be fed, cuddled, bathed, and loved. We got woken up with his crying four times last night. Although I am proud of him for waking us up to be taken outside, it is a lot to get used to and a lot of sleep lost. I feel like it’s a great experience though and may help prepare us to be parents some day. Can’t wait to learn more about him everyday. One day I hope for him to become my running partner who looks forward to going out anytime and helping me train. But until that day comes, I want to cuddle the pup as much as possible while he still fits on my lap!
Can’t wait to see what Tebow learns next! Hopefully it is to slow down and enjoy meal time, or maybe it’s that my fingers and shoe strings are not chew toys. Here’s to what’s to come!
