Henri is settling in nice at home and his toys are everywhere! He seems to enjoy shoes and the cardboard from paper towels the best. He is starting to sleep through the night. Yes!! We have a bedtime routine we are getting into and I think that helps.
He still hasn’t adjusted to the new big bed I got him, he prefers to snuggle in the too-small puppy bed. He loves laying by the door most of the day.
He loves the snow and we have had a good amount in his first week. I took him out in the back to go to the bathroom and he found a basketball and he started running around with it. It was the funniest thing! I posted the video on Instagram if you want to see it here.
A very funny Henri story, I pulled him into bed the other night. I swore he wasn’t going to get on the bed until much later but he was all sleepy and cute and I really wanted to cuddle while reading my book. He stirred around a bit found a spot and looked at me. He then got up and started crying and just peed the all-white bed! This was at 9:30 at night so then I had to strip the bed and wash and dry everything. Sorry Henri, but we need to get control of our bladder before you can cuddle on the bed. 😂
Henri recently discovered the toilet paper in the bathroom and he pushed the whole roll off with his nose. The look on his face was hilarious and I couldn’t help but let out a laugh. I need to watch him so he doesn’t think this is a toy. He needs to be watched pretty carefully. When he is quiet or I can’t find him, he is usually doing something he shouldn’t. Just like a kid.
We are still working on potty training but he is doing really well. I just got him a bell for by the door. He goes on command if I get him out in a timely matter. He has mastered sit, treat, and paw! Also, he is working his way up and down the stairs. He moves quite quickly now. I feel like he is growing up so fast. He may only be 8lbs but I like him this tiny. Perfect for snuggling.
Henri and I thank you for all the puppy love. ❤️
Some questions I am getting about Henri are probably good to answer here.
Henri’s mom was 50lbs and his dad was 20 lbs. Yes, you can laugh about that one! I am hoping he is around 35 lbs but I don’t know for sure. I will ask the vet his prediction after his check-up.
I have had a lot of suggestions for table scraps and people snacks for Henri. I have kept the food he was suggested to eat from the breeder and the same treats. Bernedoodles have very sensitive stomachs and he is still a small puppy. I will wait for the all-clear from the vet on what is best for Henri.
