Want me to cure you of it? LOL! I can tell stories of how it was at my house a few months ago.

I love puppies and I LOVE my puppy, but thank god he is getting closer to the year mark because puppyhood is HARD.

LOL, yes please!

Flip is about 1 and 1/2 now, but he really was an angel puppy.
I'm not just saying that!

If you find a cure for puppy fever let me know - so long as the answer isn't LOL.

I HAVE a puppy and STILL have puppy fever, LOL! Millie is relatively "angelic" for a puppy as well and it leaves me wanting MORE! I will have to wait a few years though...

Jager has always been a very good puppy, but a BUSY puppy! I always needed to be sure he had something appropriate to chew, he was tethered to me while I cooked dinner, or he was in his pen (which he HATED and cried like a little baby for months and months--he just finally got over that about a month or two ago).

Once I started giving him a bit of freedom in the house I had to watch him like a hawk to be sure he wasn't peeing on the floor, chewing the carpet, getting into something (he loved toilet paper and anything from the trash cans, those are still up high on counters or under cupboards). I didn't watch an entire 30-minute TV show for at least 4 months, LOL. He either needed a correction or to go out to potty... speaking of that, he still isn't 100% potty trained, but he's much better now at 8 months. When he was little, I think it was a combination of having a small bladder and being so excited about playing and life that thinking about where to potty was not high on his list of priorities.

When he was teething, it was bitey-bitey all the time on our clothes and hands, so we constantly had to tell him no and give him something to chew, he just couldn't help himself!

He has always slept through the night in his crate without a peep, but when he was younger, he was ready to be up and out of his crate at 5:00 or 5:30--way too early for me! I was feeling a bit sleep deprived there for the first few months. Now, it's better and he doesn't make a sound until we are up.

I still have to watch him like a hawk because he is allowed to roam around the house now, but he has to stay in my sight at all times. If I'm in the living room and he starts to wander off I need to call him back. (He does come back, he is such a good boy.)

He is still busy, bouncy and full of energy. We are always plotting new ways to tired him out. He will fetch for hours, he can walk for miles, and still have energy to spare.

That said, he is such a great boy and I love him to death. The first four months were the hardest, and it's getting easier by the week now. And we didn't have him until 14 weeks old, so it could have been even harder with a really young pup. I will probably have a young puppy again because I love raising them from scratch that way, but not for a while!!!!

It you get a puppy I am going to live vicariously through you.

I have it too!! BAD!!! This was the time i was sopost to be getting a puppy though! With Rys leg (and other issues) it has had to be put on hold for awhile. The only times i Dont want a puppy are early in the morning when i get up and think "i would of had to get up an hour earlier if i had a puppy". Every other time i am jealous though!

I am sure by now everyone is tired of hearing about my puppy fever! LOL! But with a 2 and 5 year old, and hopefully, a move coming up this year, I know better! AS SOON AS WE MOVE, THOUGH! Although, I would be happy with a young dog that has had some training, and is a bit over the puppy stage. Then, I'd love to add a puppy when my kids are a little older. Hubby wants a puppy, though. I bet he wins! Hahaha...

I can understand, we got Suri from a great breeder when she was about 18 months. FULLY trained - it is a big bonus and the bonding was unexpected as soon as we got her. And then there's nothing like a puppy spoo and watching the growth and the training to me is fun for the most part. I feel alive when we are training and experiencing new things (sounds corny)
