So Griffin just got his booster shots on Monday and at 15 weeks is a bit over 32 lbs -- a big boy! But not overweight, he's just growing like crazy. He's learning like crazy, too -- sit, stay, down, come, crate and so on. He's pretty good on lead or off, but after a while when we didn't use it much, he's started getting more unhappy with it on, so we're back to using it more often. My Beamish Boy and I are also starting puppy school with him today -- we were supposed to begin last Wednesday, but bad weather postponed the class until this week.

I had to republish the picture/video library, so the address changed a bit. The new address is:

http://gallery.me.com/chelidon#100199

All of the most recent pictures are at the end, and you can see how big he's getting.

My favorite is probably this one -- puppy impact in 2...1...<*splat*>, though there are a whole bunch of the recent ones that I love. It's only been two months since he came home, and he's already looking as much like a dog as a puppy some days.

Yesterday was a big day for Griffin, in a not so great way -- his first tacos (my Ravishing Partner put them on the table, turned around for a second, and a second later, the tacos had vanished...) The vanishing act was somewhat inevitably followed followed by Griffin's first serious digestive episodes, and the discovery of puking. A lot. He was a glum pup all evening, but was back to his usual rambunctious self soon enough.

The cats still have not forgiven us, but yummy (wet) food, catnip, and cozy blanket-snuggling makes up for a multitude of sins, at least so they tell us.

Well, the feeling is very mutual, I am certain, and the next time you see him, he'll be bigger for sure, but will no doubt be ecstatic to see you!

Oh my goodness...he is gorgeous and growing so fast. I love the action shot that you listed as your favorite...good humor, that.

Dang...how come I don't get a puppy?
