Pup`s mom ----I had a friend who had a male dog that would mark everywhere, in her house and even on her legs! It was discusting but this dog was confine to her backyard and had never any chances to mark else were so I always thought that was the reason. Never heard of any other dog that did this beside him and yours so maybe it's uncommon?

I lived with 4 male dogs including Sushi, 2 of them were never neutered and none of them marked in the house, it just never happened. I am so happy my home doesn't have this vague pissy smell;o)

Dude went back to the vet last night for another round of shots. He gained exactly two pounds in exactly one week, from 13.6 to 15.6lbs. Does that seem normal? or is that growth fast or slow? I'm such a worried momma!

I am wondering if maybe he wasn't getting enough food before since I could feel his ribs and spine two weeks ago when I first got him. Maybe he will end up bigger than I thought now that he has plenty to eat. He chows his food down, and then always goes right to Rapunzel's bowl to see if she has any leftovers. I am going by the chart on the food bag. I just hope that is enough?

Also, we made an appointment to neuter him on Dec 20th when he will be 5 months old. Of course this was before I read all the info on this thread about neutering early. I think everything will work out though. Since he is already on the smaller side, growing a little faster than normal won't necessarily be a bad thing for him... I guess.

I think that dog , way back when I knew nuttin about Poodles, was just a bit over-bred and neurotic .. Tate (Pup) was everything that dog was not .. brilliant, housebroken, beautiful and just good. When we got Tate, Carolyn had already gotten him into the habit of going to the door when he wanted out .. this little ball of curls would walk to our back door and bump it with his little nose .. I put a little bell on the doorknob for him to hit . He never once had a mistake in the house, even when he was so very ill and dying.

I am sorry to hear that you lost a beloved friend. I empathize with you. I lost my golden retreiver 6 yrs ago to cancer. I loved him. I took it very hard and it wasnt till this year I could bear to even think about having another dog. I fell in love with a photo of my new spoo Dexter. Even though he was literally half a continent away, I had to have him and he is perfect. Just perfect..

Lots of good info here. I had asked about age to neuter on another thread and was directed here. My boy doesn't mark in the house, and he has stopped humping the cat(poor kitty), so I think I'll wait at least until he is 18 months before neutering him. It looks like there may be some disagreement as to just how beneficial it is to wait until after sexual maturity, but I haven't read anything that makes me think there would be any reason to do it sooner. Thanks!
