    DefaultAidan is learning to sit and more.

    I have been working on the sit command and I think he is getting it. I would use a treat, let him smell it, then slowly move it back so he was forced to sit to keep his eyes on it. Then I would reward him. He is really smart. I can tell. He plays with Emma a lot. Emma is really patient and gentle with him. If Aidan gets too rough, I stop them and hold him for a few minutes until he settles down. Mom said to teach him the settle command also. We have to vacuum all of the time because Emma sheds a lot of hair from playing with him.
    And he likes to watch tv! He lies on my bed and watches the tv with me.
    He eats like a champ and loves treats. The housetraining is going great. At this point, I think I am more trained than he is. I know when to take him and make sure to always get him outside before he goes indoors. But I love that he doesn't fool around out there late at night. He does his thing and runs back to the door lol.
    Last night he slept for 7 hours in a row! I think he feels safe and at home now. I sent the checks in to Laura for his AKC and UKC* registrations.
    Aidan is going to be called* Kelrobin's Yellow Brick Road. Do you like it?
    I am completely in love with this little guy. I can't imagine what I did before I had him. My grandparents came over for dinner and said it's about time someone in their family did it right in terms of buying a puppy. They just think he is adorable.
    My Dad bought these jerky beef sticks for him and he loves them. He closes his eyes when he is eating them like he is in heaven and makes these little grunting noises that are so cute. He only gets one of these a day though. I don't want to over do it with the good stuff.

    Jeff,

    You sound like you are head over heels in love with the little guy.

    He is so totally adorable. In his pic in this thread, I love that you can see his yellow eye lashes.

    PS: Love his registered name.

    My pretty girl, Lexi!

    He has a great set of bear paws too. Little black paws. I have to take a picture of them. I'm glad you like the name. Deb, give Lexi a hug from Aidan.

    Jeff,

    Thanks so much for the daily Aidan update. I love his AKC name. I can understand how you can fall in love with him. He is just adorable. Also sounds like Emma is being a great older sister.

    Take care,
    Jeanne

    Kelrobin's Yellow Brick Road.....a perfect formal moniker for him Jeff

    He's a yellow munchkin (now anyway), and you're a Wizard with him

    Sounds like you're doing great, both of you...nice to hear
