Once spring arrived and the weather turned nice Drake just loved to be outside. Well, to clarify, he was happy to play outside all winter. I was the one who always wanted to head inside out of the rain and cold.

The puppy quarantine has lifted.  Drake has completed his puppy shots and is free to roam the world.  We wander farther away from the house on our walks, he comes with me as many places as possible, and he has started puppy class.  He is no longer the tiny, fragile puppy I brought home.  Pretty soon he will even lose that (new) puppy smell.

Drake on Bed

He grows so fast 🙂

A new part of the morning routine is the feeding game. Instead of breakfast being a few minutes of inhaling food, it’s play and eat at the same time. Luckily Drake hasn’t taken to playing with food from his dish at other meals.

He really does enjoy it and is quite good at it. Sometimes he loses focus after about 10 minutes, but he reengages. It is  good to feed both the body and the mind.

The creature grows and is eating everything.  And by everything, I mean everything he can get his mouth on.  The vet says he is doing great and everyone in the office was happy to see him.  I guess the extra roughage is good for him.

The Creature Grows

What? It was on the ground.

Drake had a nice visit to the vet and got to meet all the nice people at the office, as well as a couple of dogs. As you can see below he was very good and got lots of compliments, including on his name tag.   He even got an official diagnosis of Very Cute from the vet 🙂
