So Caesar and I are getting along great! It's been a month since Mommy and Daddy brought him home, and I think I speak for everyone when I say that we couldn't imagine life without him! Even the cats are doing better with him than they were-- even though they still don't really like him.
I have grown a lot. I went and got spayed last month, and it has been all better for a while. I weigh 43 pounds now! Annnnd, the vet says I look great for my age. All of my grown up teeth are in, and I let Mommy brush them every week. Caesar hates getting his teeth brushed, so Daddy has to hold him down while Mommy does it. But I just lay on Mommy's lap and let her do it. We think Caesar has never had his teeth brushed before. Mommy says that my training is going well, and I am right on track for her plan to get my CGC at the end of the year. She's going to do Caesar's too, but probably sooner. He only needed a few touch-ups on his training.
Mommy is also thinking about training me to do agility. Since we don't have a fenced in yard, my off leash time is limited, and she thinks agility would be a great way to burn off excess energy while keeping me fully focused on the task at hand. Plus I have proven that I can jump really high, so she thinks I need an outlet that will harvest that capability without any added stigma. It sure is hard being an APBT-- there are so many things that I would be good at, but because this is a state that is infested with too many dogfighters, Mommy has to be super-careful with the activities we do, so that we don't get in trouble for suspicion of illegal activities.
We play fetch a lot and I get to play inside too, since our living room is big enough for Caesar and me to roughhouse in. But I can't wait to see what Mommy has in mind for me to do with Agility!
