A month with us

I just realized that Loki has been with us for an entire month now. He arrived in our home on St. Patty's Day - March 17, 2007. In the past month,
  • He's had his first bath with us. Terrifying experience I'm sure, but he survived.
  • He's gone to the vet twice. The first time was his initial exam and the second was for shots. He was well-behaved and calm both times.
  • He's only ever had one pooping accident. That occurred when I had to leave him home alone for too long, because I had jury duty. Pretty amazing if you ask me.
  • It's been well over a week since he last peed on the carpet, but we did have one accident on his blanket this past Sunday. Still, he's been fairly easy to potty train.
  • He's peed on Mike when he first met him.
  • He's learned to accept the collar and leash, albeit begrudgingly.
  • He's learned to stop whining.
  • He's met Mr. Vacuum Cleaner twice. The first meeting went better than the second.
  • He's fantastic on car rides, since he goes on a car ride almost ever other day.
  • Among the dogs that he's met, he's growled at one white fluffy dog, he's growled at another Shiba puppy, been indifferent to a Shih Tzu puppy, and was a bit puzzled by the behavior of a hyperactive Chihuahua.
  • He loves meeting people. And people love meeting him! This makes walks with him very time-consuming.
  • He's become more comfortable in our den and bedroom, but has yet to be comfortable with the kitchen. He loves to walk underneath our desks in the den.
  • He experienced his first taste of off-leash fun in the fenced backyard of my auntie's home.
  • He barks in his sleep sometimes. And also wiggles his limbs in his sleep.
  • He loves to stretch.
  • He really loves to lick our legs after we've showered. Why? We haven't figured it out yet. Maybe it's the soap?
  • Most of the time, he understand exactly what you want him to do, he just doesn't want to do it.
  • He loves to chase things blowing in the wind.
  • He's my funny & silly puppy =)
