It’s been years since we last had puppies. I’d have never thought we’d get one, actually, as it’s the older dogs that are less likely to be adopted. And now, with Brian, I realise how many things I forgot.
Brian breathes faster than adult dogs, his heartbeat is scarily rapid. It’s normal. Don’t panic, Alex, don’t panic.
Brian gets hiccups rather often. He had diarrhoea on his second day and his farts were unbelievable. It’s normal, his immature digestive system will adapt.
He’s getting better every day, the walks are still frustrating (he’s too scared to walk) but even there, there’s been progress. He’s so clumsy and funny I could spend all day just watching him.The only thing I’m trying to teach him at the moment is that I’m ok, it’s safe to be around me, it’s fine to trust me.
