Default Re: Adopting a puppy with a toddler and almost 8 year old

Ladies we picked him up today-- my son named him Bowser and he is a darling puppy. Very affectionate and playful, DS held him in his lap all the way home in the car and was like mom, please don't talk loud because I want Bowser to get a good nap. Bahahaha. He also said his legs hurt from the position he was sitting in but he didn't want to move because he didn't want to wake Bowser up. He's like a little parent, it's very sweet.

My BIL held him/played with him in a bunch of different positions and said he thinks he's a submissive sweet little guy and he was awesome with all 7 of my nieces and nephews who held him and played with him all night. So thus far he seems like a really great little guy.

DD (18 months) is terrified of him but I think with time that will get better and I am going to be careful to keep her separated from him (well with him loose and her loose)until he's bigger. Right now he just can't control himself (the playing, jumping, etc). So I'm thinking during the week we'll make sure he's out with DH and I as much as possible during the day (when DD is at nanny's in AM and when she naps in afternoon) and then gets a good chunk of time with DS being active when he get a home around 5:30 each night. And in the in between times he can be in his crate when I need to have DD with free reign of the house.

Have I mentioned he's adorable and smells delicious?
