Marty has been banished to the kitchen for asking if the second stair was alright.

Marty has been very good today. He was on the balcony for about an hour. Then we played "fetch". He has hardly bitten. He had had an accident when I got back from dropping you off...usual place. We should have left him in the kitchen. He usually goes twice in the mornings, seems like.

We took Marty to Vancouver with us, and we all survived, and had a great time visiting with dogs and dog people. He met some great dogs, but none he could really play with. I thought that when we met a beautiful toy poodle today at the ferry, that finally .... but she didn't want to play with him, even though she was a bit bigger. She was much too much of a lady to stoop to playing with a baby mutt. LOL. The nicest dog was a huge thing.... a Bouvier. He was fairly young, massive, and very gentle. Marty showed no fear, just walked up and said, "Hi. How ya doin'?" I think the answer was, "Just fine, little fellow." Marty wisely did not jump up on him.

Looks like we're going to Vancouver after all, but tomorrow morning, 7 AM ferry, if all goes as planned. We're taking Marty with us. Should be interesting....

We (no puppy yet) went to Puppy Training last night. We're way ahead of schedule in a lot of things, usually, but suddenly he's getting stubborn. Sometimes he's just great, and understands what is expected of him, and usually obeys Come, Fetch, Sit, and is learning Down, Watch Me, Stay. I guess he'll get it, but now he's starting to balk at walking with us, and just stands there. Arghhh!! ("I want to go out with my buddies, not my PARENTS!!")

Marty is here on my lap ehlping me type.

To a friend: I just had my son and his family here for a few days, to visit our new puppy. His name is Marty, and he's a 10 week old Shih Tzu/Yorkie, and is absolutely adorable. I'm a cat person, and Marty is my first dog. I'm not voting yet.... but he's sure fun. He was just what I was looking for. :) I can pretty much get him to spend all his energy playing "fetch", or he has this thing he does with the broom. He chases it, hangs on, dances with it.... it's his favorite toy, if I'm on the other end.

To a friend: I have a new puppy!! His name is Marty (otherwise it would have been "Bob"). He is a 9 1/2 week-old Shih Tzu/Yorkie, and he's mostly black, with a few strategically placed white spots, like his goatee, his vest, a couple of toes, and under his tail (as reported by the vet, who wanted to call him "Skunk") He is already ruling the house.

I've decided he has cat-blood in him, and am training him to use the litter box, much to Allan's dismay. ("He's a DOG!!") It's working, and much better than having those ugly newspapers all over the floor.

He went to have his first grooming yesterday. Of course, I had already bathed him 3 times. He smells like DAWG. Still. But he sure is cute.

Marty has had no accidents today. I did catch him sniffing and closed him in his nursery (the kitchen), and he immediately went to the litter box. He was well-rewarded. Now I'm trying to teach him not to nip and chew.

Marty went on a looooong walk (for him) along Dallas Road (beach) with us today. He met several other dogs from a distance, as well as many dog lovers. We had a great time. Everyone loved Marty.

We went to Baja Grill afterwards. Charmaine gave Marty water in the car. We left him there, in his cage, with the window open a crack, and Tony checked on him after a bit. He was fine. When we got back to the car, I took him out on the leash, and I think he peed....

He was a good boy. But he did have a little accident: he threw up in his cage on the way home. Poor baby.

The neighborhood sleeps more soundly, knowing he is there to protect us.

To a friend:

I have a new baby at home. His name is Marty. His picture is attached. I'm in love.

We took Marty for a nice walk this morning. It's beautiful out. He protected us from a big white monster (cat) today, and was quite proud of himself. "Protecting" us consisted of stopping where he was and going no further, in spite of our encouragement.

He has his ups and downs as far as house-breaking goes. The funniest thing was yesterday, when he got scolded for an accident. We're trying to teach him to use a litter box, right? So I go to the other room for a few minutes after the scolding, only to return to find the litter box with the puppy "diaper" turned upside down. He is VERY expressive.
