A Tale of Titus

I'm a new momma of the cutest little mini dachshund that we call Titus. Big T. We been thinking about getting a puppy for a year and when some friends said they were going to have a litter, we decided to claim one. My daughter had one picked out since they were born and that is the one we brought home.

Did I mention that I am sleepy this morning? Poor little thing misses his family and cried off and on all night. He did better than I thought he would and only cried every two hours, but goodness, I'm not used to that. It's been 14 years since I had that going on!

He is adorable and playful and loves to chase his tail. He pounces and runs into things and shake toys. Did I mention he chews on everything? Yes, he does. And I find it adorable. At least right now.

Hopefully he will adjust and I keep my sanity as we house train him. Any tips on that? Please? Anyone?

  1. My tip is that it really does get easier! I remember when we first brought Bubba home....the little bugger would play tug-a-war with my ponytail any time I tried to do situps and he chewed apart our brand new recliner. Ah...memories.

    They become such a part of the family, though! And Titus is 100% adorable!!

  7. Oh, I LOVE Titus! Jealousy strikes.

    I LOVE the Monks of Skete books on training dogs and think they totally work.

    We always use a crate...

    Blessings and ENJOY!!!!

  8. There's nothing like a new baby in the house! Time is all you need, and a nap. Sweet puppy.

  9. My husband is a cat person, and I've been completely converted. However, when I was growing up we had dogs. My dog was a regular doxie, and I loved him like crazy. Alex was my pal and met me every day when I got home from school, his tail wagging and his too-big belly dragging. I don't remember his puppy days since we got him some, um, 40 years ago, so I'm no help on puppy tips though.

  13. He's so cute, and you picked a great name!

    Sorry, no tips. When I had animals, they were of the feline variety. :)

    Blessings,

  15. Good luck with your adorable puppy.
    Something warm and soft in his cage might help.
    A hot water bottle?
    Not sure.
    Our dog loved his cage and got into it every night at bed time with his fave toys and pillow.
    Currently we don't have a dog and I'm thinking we'll not get one.
    We like to travel as we're retired and puppies as you know require lots of TLC.
    Blessings to you and Titus.
