Well a lot has happened in the past week…..
Butterball learned how to jump on the couch of the first time. This makes me so happy because I don’t have to lift the 16 pound dog up when I am lazy of comfortable. There’s only one problem with this. Butterball doesn’t usually jump on the couch unless I am coaxing him with a rawhide or toy, but when I have food…..well that’s a different story. Sometimes when I snack on something or drink something I just sit on the couch and watch TV because its more convenient. Butterball still doesn’t know his food manners so he jumps up on the couch and steals or attacks whatever I have. When he’s around I have to now eat it at the table.
Butterball got into a lot of trouble this week. He was outside and we went to go get him and guess what I saw? Styrofoam all over the back yard. I wasn’t sure where it was coming from because we don’t have anything that is made of Styrofoam in the backyard. I brushed it off and turned to go back into the house and I was about to open the door, looked down, and I saw a big chunk of the decorative molding of the house missing…..I knew who it had to be it was butterball. My mom was very mad about this because we don’t know why he would even do that. My mom blocked it off with stuff so he would stop chewing it apart and he moved it to go at it again. He got a spanking on his butt and a big long lectured that consisted of “NO NO NO NO” and pointing at it.
here is a picture of the damage
Wednesday butterball went to the human society to get his last serious of puppy shots and his rabies shots. He was all fine and dandy and loved the car ride. It was sleepy time for him. He was happy to be around people and to get so much attention. He was fine on the table wagging his little behind and sniffing the lady. Then she turned around and appeared with something. Butterball knew what was going to happen next and he was not happy about it. I could see him trying to think about how to jump off the table but he realized with was much to high for him so he resorted to climbing on my like a cat. He scratched and succeeded making it to my shoulders then me putting him back down and putting a body lock on him. He’s a very strong little guy and boy did I have trouble he got his puppy shot done cried before and after. Then he was like “ohm no I am not doing that again” did the cat climb again. I tried to hold him down but I couldn’t he just kept moving to try to get away, so I had my mom hold him down. He received his last shot and he cried so loud. I felt bad for my poor little guy but I knew that the shots were necessary. I am super excited to be taking him to the dog park soon, I wanted to wait two weeks before I do so his vaccinations can take full effect.
