, I've ordered the book. Thank you for the reference!
And y'all, don't get me wrong. I looooove cuddling with my pup! I just didn't want it to somehow make him intolerable when he's older when it comes to training. Trust me, he's not going to be short on lovin' from me! He's spoiled rotten. My husband's gone for a while (yay Army life) and I was contemplating letting Zeus up on the couch with me .. even though we've already discussed the "no dogs on the furniture" rule before we even got our puppy. But I don't want to start bad habits!
I can't believe how much I love this puppy already. As big of a pill as he can sometimes be, I can't imagine not having him in my life.
Thanks for the posting info also. I'm sure there will still be a few weeks worth of healing before I start that adventure with him.
