    DefaultHarper's 1st beach trip!

    Well it was a HOT one here on the weekend. We decided to head down to the market, Harper's first outing with us as a family. People stopped us every few metres, we couldn't get two steps without someone wanting to come and pat the puppy! He was very well behaved and had a great time saying "hi" to all the stall holders, and was even pretty good with other dogs.

    Then he spied the water. I took these down at the Harbour in Kiama, so it was pretty calm. It's called Black Beach, as you can probably tell by the sand. It was his first time with water.

    This first one is him grabbing the lead and telling Dad to splash with him!


    Then he just spent the rest of the time doing this, his hippo impersonation.

    Has Harper had all his shots? If not, you should not be taking him public places, especially where there are other dogs. There are too many things he can catch before his shots are all finished. Puppies don't have the immune systems that older dogs have.

    Don't worry, Jackie, he got all his shots at 12 weeks! We made sure we wouldn't take him out in public before we got them. I was also a bit picky and didn't really want to start puppy classes until we'd had them, either, because you never know.

    He's 13 weeks today!!
    My sig pic was taken at 8 weeks, so that's probably why. Plus, he's still a little tike, only 8kgs - not sure how many pounds that is!

    Milly was about 6.5kgs at Harper's age (i have a weight chart record I keep for her) and 8kgs is about 17.5lbs

    Harper looks like he had a blast at the beach!! Milly thoroughly LOVES it. Looks like your little dude does too

    I love seeing Harper's pics! He's such a cutie.
    Make sure to check his ears at home after he does his "hippo" thing... they can get sand & water in them and that can cause some build up.
