Pupdate 

Standard

Archie has made himself well and truly at home his favourite place was the rug. We had 2 matching rugs either end of the living room but we had to take them up as he was pulling little tufts of the fibres out and I don’t want him to swallow them plus I don’t want bald rugs . When he is through his chewing phase we will put them back . We have a flat rug in the garage that needs cleaning so we will do that this weekend.  

Archie goes outside to wee and he is eating fine and we haven’t had any problem with his sleeping.  He goes up to bed with me at around ten and wakes between five thirty and six which is fantastic, I on the other end get around five or six hours and I am struggling with sleep. 

When I pick him up and put him on my lap he likes to climb up and lies on my chest and go to sleep and has stared following me everywhere and he is so tiny I have to be so careful. He is fast , he has a mad five minutes during the day when he just runs round like a crazy dog and he is so quick .

Here are a few pics of him with his collar and harness that I try on him for a short time evert day to get him used to them he also has his teeth brushed every day which he seems to like . 

Here are a few pics of Archie

He is a joy. He can start socialising with other dogs from tomorrow and we are meeting my Sister in Laws little Yorkshire terrier Henry. It is John’s Birthday tomorrow but he has to work so we are going out Sunday weather permitting to sit outside in the pub garden for a meal with Archie to see how he gets on. He is so confident now and has explored the house and the patio area . He is so funny, he drags his little toy donkey around and it’s bigger than him.  We are totally in live with this little man. He was eleven weeks yesterday.  I will let you know how he gets on over the weekend.  The Grandchildren adore him and he enjoyed the fuss. 

Have a good week .

  1. I can see why you are captivated with him Dawn. He looks so tiny (and vulnerable) – how big will he be fully grown? And has he barked yet – or don’t dachshunds bark?
    You were right to get a different breed as there’ll be so much for you to learn about this one. Even I’m sitting here with a grin on my face and I’m definitely a cat person 😊

    Hi he is a Chiuaua the angle of the pick made his body look longer . He is tiny he will probably double in size but his Mum was petite. He is so funny and had little ways already. He runs round the garden like a little rocket,he likes cuddles, he did a tiny little bark I am not sure what at he just did . He is a joy but you are right when you say vulnerable if you turn round he is at your heels and you can’t see him coming and he is quick . We have to be so careful not to tread on him x
