Today the little fellow in the family is seven months old, that is me, Nelson! Mom says she was never sure how it would be for her having a male dog, but I tell you, she is totally wrapped around my big paws!
For my seven month photo shoot I got to go on a mommy and me outing, which is always a lot of fun. Living with a bunch of girls is not always easy, but being alone with Mom is really nice. We found a nice park to take some shots of me. I’m learning to stay put and to pose for the camera. In case you don’t remember how I used to look, check our post from when Mom brought me home.
For me, doing a nice sit/stay and come when called is pretty easy these days. Above, I’m sauntering over to Mom, sniffing a bit along the way.
Mom says I am growing like a week. I’m over fifteen inches now at my withers, and around thirty eight pounds. At our house, being fit is important, so I do my best to workout and keep my body in good shape. Being a puppy, I am limited as to what I can do, though. Lately we are working hard on “stand” for my show career. I’m getting better at it all the time.
Games are always fun, like chase or keep away. Mom thinks chess might be good for the mind. I had a look but decided it isn’t something I would be interested in.
The weather was cool the day we did my photo shoot. Mom says it feels like fall, whatever that means. Anyway, there are these snowball bushes like the ones we have at home at the park. We took my photo there to get our minds focused on winter. I really hope it is cold and snowy so I can experience it. Last year I was a tiny puppy and very young in the winter. I was also in Missouri which doesn’t have the same kind of winter as Minnesota.
As I start my seventh month of life as the little fellow in my family, I have a lot to think about. What will my future be like? How will I do in sports? Will I be a good show dog? Can I deal with living with three sisters? It is a lot for a young man, but I know I can handle it and I think my life is going to be more fun the older I get!
