Bringing up Baby

This is Basil, fast asleep.
Like a human baby, he spends quite a lot of time sleeping....except at night :-)

I can usually count on him sleeping for about an hour and a half in the day before he needs to go out to toilet, or be fed, or played with, or just want some fuss.
So if I can`t get it done in that time frame, it has to wait for him to sleep again before it gets finished, unless someone else takes on baby-sitting to free me up.

House-training is going pretty well, but you really have to watch him like a hawk for the signs (sniffing, concentrating, walking in cirles, standing near the door) in order to get him outside in good time, as he hasn`t learned to make noises to let us know he needs to go out..........

But he is lovely !

He looks larvely! My parents have a golden labrador (who's now about 18 months old). He's gorgeous, but a real nightmare when it comes to chewing. He will chew EVERYTHING - chairs, tables, clothes, doors, wallpaper, mop buckets (he thinks mops are his own personal toys!), everything. We forgive him, though, because he is beautiful.

What a cutie.
My dog is 3 and a half years old, and I'm still amazed at the time she spends sleeping. In fact, she's asleep right now.
