This kid's a superstar (or, as my son Henry says, a Pup Star).
He loves his crate, he's already shown progress on wee pad training, he's
coming out of his shell and playing with everyone (including our senior
kitty cat, who has zero interest but has gotten annoyed once), and he's
exploring every corner of our household. He hasn't had any crate accidents
and he's eating 2-3 square meals per day and he's even attached to a
favorite lovey (a plush berber "bone" that is almost the same size as him).
Oh and he seems to be responding to his name, too!
This is what he looks like after 5-10 minutes of play.
All best -
