    My nephew is adorable! How much does he weigh?

    I think you may have to do the whole body. Have you considered showering together? The tub may be a little wlld: water everywhere

    Enjoy your new child!

    the shelter last weighed him at a little under 3 kg, he may grow a bit in the following month, then he should've reached his "adult" size.

    thank you, a shower sounds like a great idea! he might find it fun and we really just need lots of sprinkling to soften the sticky bits on his face so it can be wiped off! indoor rain :))

    I know I am late to this post, but I was so touched by your reply to a post of mine today that I just wanted to chime in and say congratulations on your new family member. What a darling sweetie. I don't think there is any such thing as too soon. It is whatever your heart says and yours was telling you to go for it. I am glad you listened as it seems things are going so well.
    You give me encouragement that I too can love again some day. I've been wandering around the house aimlessly all day crying. Every corner I look in I expect to see her. While I was driving around today I asked for a sign that my baby was safely on the other side and doing well. As I went into the dry cleaners I noticed a community bulletin board on the wall and a posting right in the middle was from someone in big letters named 'Daisy" my kitty's name. I took it as a sign that she made it over the bridge to that great place. I believe your dear boy is with you still and had a part of bringing your new baby to you. Enjoy every minute.

    You are so sweet GingerMay!

    The puppy is doing very well, it feels like he has been with me for ages, he is so comfortable. He does make it so much easier for me, thinking about Darko I always think here goes love again.

    Pets are incredible gifts, I know it's like having your soul ripped out when they go.

    I love the posting with Daisy in big letters! How beautiful!
    She loved you very much.

    My heart goes out to you.

    I just saw this post... congratulations on your new pup! He is adorable. I love the photo that gets right up on his nose. Dogs are so wacky :)
    Also, so sorry to hear about Darko. But I know he would understand about getting a new doggy. Animals are hedonistic and practical like that, so he wouldn't blame you one bit for doing something that makes you happy.

    Thank you Jibralta!

    I got Darko when he was already grown up and often wondered what he was like as a pup. Watching Bonito I get wonderful mental images of little Darko.

    Bonito has endless energy, is very attached and cuddly.
    We've gotten over the fear of grooming mostly too.

    I used to feel listless on my days off, whereas i'm really looking forward to free days now so we can PLAY!ALL!DAY!

    Taking him home was the best thing I've done in a while, i'm grateful and honored to take care of him.
