Likes: He likes GROWING!!! And playing and napping, being with his humans (although he is very good when he has to stay alone), he likes chewing on the furniture and our slippers... will have to change that!
Pet-Peeves: The vaccuum cleaner... He just can't stand it! And he's not too keen on the hair dryer either!
Favorite Toy: The squeaky cat, the kongs he got when he graduated from puppy class...and any other toy that survives his "intense" chewing habits. Also recently, the cow that his Daddy gave him for his birthday - after chewing off its ears, he loooves it!
Favorite Food: He likes his puppy food, his treats, cheerios, apples, cheese, carrots (loves carrots!) and nectarines. He has a healthy apetite and isn't picky at all!
Favorite Walk: He likes any walk that involves meeting other puppies... He definitely loves meeting new people and walking around the neighbourhood pulling us along! He loves going to the off-leash doggie park!
Best Tricks: He is SO SMART!!! He waves and he can have a treat on his paw and wait until we say "take it" before he eats it..He sits and lies down (basically lets his bum slide on the floor until he's lying down :) so cute!), He shakes a paw...he's a charmer!
Arrival Story: We dreamed of having a puppy since we knew we would have our own house and be able to have one comfortably. We even picked a name right away! Pedro. And then we moved and we started looking for "our" Pedro... We came across this litter of Golden Doodles, which we went to visit right away and although all his siblings were very adorable, when we laid eyes on him and he kissed me with his sweet puppy breath, he became "our" Pedro and we became "his" humans. He came home a few days later and the first few hours were amazing and it only keeps getting better! We know that we have the smartest, cutest pup in the world. I am certain that my Angel Renata & her angel on Earth, Mateo had a paw in this... ;)
I remember saying
that I didn't think I could
love again a puppy
as much as I loved my angel Renata
the loveliest pup you knew
But then she had a say
in sending Pedro my way
and now that he's turning three
my heart and my soul he owns
with cuddles and with those eyes
he conquers me every day
he barks and he jumps a lot
but he loves me unconditional
He is my child, you know
my family, my sweet, sweet boy
he's loved and he knows it so
but he loves back with both his paws
Thank you Renata
for letting me love
this puppy who's three years old
who cuddles with me every dawn
who's there when the sun goes down
who loves me with no withhold
Pedro, I love
the way you look at me
the way you cuddle in the mornings,
the fact that you bark and bark
urging me to go
just because you simply want
the treats in the kong I got,
And I love
the infinite patience that you have
when I watch TV late at night
the way you crawl under the bed,
the look in your eyes when you wait
for "lavender time",
the way your sniff the treats I offer,
the way you rub your nose when I spray perfume
or the fact that you go sit and wait
when I grab your toothbrush and the yummy toothpaste
I also love
your joy and excitement of hearing me come in
every day when I return from work,
and even the way you bark,
when you just want to be pet
or go pee-pee in the yard...
I love you Pedro so much
I really didn't think
I could love this much
Happy Birthday Pedro.
I love you.
And I love you Renata (thank you for Mateo and Pedro)
Well, well, well... I think some humans think that we pups don't know when it's our birthday, but we do! I do anyway!! I had a wonderful birthday thanks to my Mommy mostly... Daddy helped but he spent a good time rolling his eyes and smiling at Mommy like she was doing something silly... I don't think there was anything silly with having a cheese-cake... On my birth day Mommy got a chunk of marble cheddar cheese and she put two candles on it and she and Daddy sang Happy Birthday to me!
They gave me presents, I got a new bed, a chewing smoked beef bone, a chicken that makes funny noises and an edible card (which I haven't eaten yet)... then Uncle Mateyeyis and Grandma and Grandpa gave me a card and a coat... no toys, no treats... but a piece of clothing... hmmm, I'm grateful and I love them and I do look very cute with my coat, but I'm not a clothes kind of pup, you know? Anyway, I appreciate my coat that I got as a birthday present!
Then... on Saturday my human brother was here and also cousin Charlie came over with his Mommy and Daddy and they brought me presents, they got me an alligator and another alligator and a tennis ball toy and a tug-a-war toy and a cozy blankie and a card with some puppies barking happy birthday... and we had cake for humans, pupcakes, party hats (yes, they got me to wear one), and cousin Charlie and I played a lot and we had a great time!
My cousin Charlie is so funny and he's getting so big. We have lots of fun together and we tire each other out and we are very lucky that we live closeby...
I liked having my birthday day and my birthday party day...!
