Holding still for pictures is not what this puppy is all about. So while I'm endeavoring to get a really nice shot of his sweet face, I can now announce that a name has been decided upon, a good German name for a German dog - introducing - Fritz!
I have to say that Fritz has to be a lucky little pup with so many people doting on his every move, eager to play, walk with him, etc. From the first night I informed DH that I'd done night duty with seven children, and I wasn't getting up with this one! So he's taken that on quite happily (so far). Can someone please explain to me how this man who couldn't wake with a baby screaming in his ear, can wake to the little noises of a lonesome puppy in need of a trip outside? I don't get it!
The first day and a half poor Fritz was missing his mother and brothers as his mood seemed to be subdued. He didn't whine and cry, but he was on the quiet side until yesterday afternoon when he burst into full play mode and seemed genuinely happy to be here.
Tigger, our 10yo orange tabby, tolerates Fritz pretty well, as long as Fritz keeps his distance and doesn't try to play with him. When Tigger lets loose with one of his scary hisses, Fritz is easily convinced to keep his distance! :D We're all making adjustments and having fun too, with an occasional cleanup - training for us all!
