Our dog, Gonçalo, had its final set of inoculations a few days ago. The vet advised us that the puppy should not be let out until Easter weekend.
Gonçalo pees and poos for Portugal, indoors he is not to be let out yet. Plus, when he first arrived, he was not happy sleeping overnight in a strange room. He yipped and yapped constantly. Now we have him in a large cage where he can hear us, so he sleeps fine in the night. One problem down, several to go.
The secret to a dog’s brain is through his stomach. This is Gonçalo saying ‘where is the food?’
I intend to have a trained dog. That mean the basics, like peeing and pooing outside. And at the moment the puppy is teething, so it is trying to eat everything, including us. That will stop.
I intend having a dog that walks alongside me without the need for a leash. And one that sits beside me peacefully in the Algarve sun. Something like Gonçalo here.
