Sydney has been home a week now but it feels like he has been here forever :D :D After crying for the first few nights I haven't heard a peep since xmas eve. I've been getting up to him at about 4am and then getting up between 7-8am although this morning i stretched it to 8:20am :D

He has settled into a routine of playing and sleeping and is doing all of his poos and about 90% of wees outside, he has even learned to go to the back door. Any done inside are usually my fault for not being quick enough, although yesterday during a mad half hour he came in from the garden and weed on Pud's bed 8O

Pud does a fabulous job of tiring him out and has now decided that he quite likes his little brother, I've attached a video of them playing. Sydney is fearless and if he cant get hold of the toy he will bite Pud's feet or face instead.

I've been putting Sydney in his crate for meals and he will usually eat half before starting to whine, I've been putting my hand in his food and 'fighting' him for it to encourage him to eat it all - I want to make sure that he is getting a tummy full whilst he is so little. Although he has definitely grown in the past week :D

We have been doing a little of training and have pretty much mastered sit, he is a little more bemused by 'give me your paw' but his recall over a short distance is fab.

He really is absolutely adorable, such a character and incredibly different to Pud who has always been mr independent pup, Sydney's favourite spot is curled up on my feet which is where he is now :D

Just so I don't get complacent he does have mad puppy half hours of tearing round the outside of the garden - through my raised flower beds and pulling up the corner of the black fabric that is underneath the bark :roll:

I've attached lots of photos


Looking adorable:

The photos and video are wonderful :D

Great to see how well they are both getting on.

Loved the way playing made Sydney run into the kitchen for a drink, such a clever puppy.
