Well my brave little soldier had 2 jabs and had a microchip inserted today. I felt a stab through my heart when the vet dabbed a drop of blood from the little chaps neck but Wendell’s tail was still wagging in trust and excitement. His weight has doubled in 2 weeks and he is a handful to hold now. We have only 1 more week to go, before he can go walkies. I think it will be a relief for both of us as well as a source of great fun. His claws are like razors , at present and he will need some road work to get them smoother. After all, life is not all running on the beach and sniffing trees. Puppy party starts in 2 weeks, when he will be meeting people and other puppies and doing some basic training. We both have much to look forward to, Pen.
