All is Fair in Puppy Parenting

Somebody please tell me how King went from this:
To this:

They grow up so fast! Of course growing up has advantages. For example King has not had an accident inside in THREE days. He also knows how to sit, shake, lay down and roll over and is getting better at the basic commands like come and stay everyday. He will also sleep through the night and last weekend he slept in until 11:30 (Hallelujah! I was hoping he'd be lazy.) And he likes to cuddle, which is adorable.

However growing up has disadvantages, too. King can now climb up on the couch. Which is where we used to put the laundry before we fold it along with anything else we needed to move out of his reach. Not anymore!

We also had our first official shoe death yesterday. Sure he's chewed on a few pairs now and then, but bite marks are fashionable this time of year. Yesterday was the first time he rendered a shoe un-wareable. And of course it was MY shoe. Which he got from the couch (see above paragraph... I put them there so he could not reach them. I would have put them in the front closet, but I didn't want to risk an avalanche.) Rambo thought it was funny. So now I am forced to accidently-on-purpose leave a few of his shoes out.

All is fair in love, war, and puppy parenthood, people. Both parents have to make sacrifices.

Live & Love!
