For right now, Finn seems to be enjoying the new play toy we’ve brought home for her…

We’ve found out that Charley is not house broken!  UGHGH.  He’s heading off to the vet this morning for a complete check-up and hopefully he’ll have a clean bill of health.  He seems a bit wobbly on his feet…I wonder how much exercise he has ever had before.  Anyways, 8 months old, 40 pounds and a bundle of energy so far!

    Good luck today at the V-E-T. It’s great to see you and Finn getting along so far. We loved seeing you outside together running around. We hope you two will become the best of furends.

    Sweet Finn, we love you and your brother. I’m sure you will teach him where to go potty and how to get good belly rubs.

    What a cutie! Dont panic yet about the house breaking sometimes dogs take a few days to adjust to a new environment. When we brought Zira home she was 9 and had many accidents the first few days, but then it got much much better. Good luck

    A big welcome to Charley. We’ve paws and fingers crossed that all goes well at the vet. Is there any possibility that Charley has merely forgotten his housetraining given the stress of being in a new home? When I first adopted my Westie he was nearly 4 years old and he did have several ‘accidents’ in the first couple of weeks, but after that, without me doing anything very much, he
    was absolutely fine.
    Cheers, Gail.
    PS Just noticed that the Urban Hounds said much the same!

    Wow Finn you are so lucky to have a brother to play with all the time now. I keep asking my parents for a brother too, but they haven’t found the right one yet.

    Hi Finn and Charley and tired peeps!!
    Oh me oh my….very very good news that Finn and Charley are compatible. That is big!!
    I bet he will be house broken quickly by watching Finn. As for the wobble..he could have been kenneled and not exercised much. 100% sure TLC will conquer all hurtles
    He sure has pretty furs.
    Hugs madi your BFFF

    Welcome, Charley. Looks like Finn and Charley are off to a great start. Just be firm from the start with the potty training and he will catch on quickly. Keep him on a short leash inside close by you all the time. He will get it.

    Hey Miss Finn, That Charlie sure is a good looking dog. I feel like I know him, like I have seen him in a mirror. Anyway, I am so glad your family adopted him. You are gonna really need to show him the ropes though. I can’t wait to learn more about him and to watch your friendship blossom. Very cool.

    We got our Golden when he was 14 months and he was not housebroken either. He had lived in a kennel so he didn’t really need it. In no time he got the picture and it wasn’t like having a wee pup with a small bladder who couldn’t hold it for long. 🙂 Hoping to hear a clean bill of health!
