He is being very good. Not at all used to be inside and he is a very shy puppy as well.

Everyone else doing OK?
Is Pinky at your house or still with mom?

Pinky is still with sibling, Gizmo and Jill as well. I can only deal with 1 puppy at a time so I will bring Pinky home along with Brummy at the end of the week. I have mostly carpet and I didnt want to risk having a huge mess on my hands.

I didnt want Brummy to associate here with her right off the bat either make it harder when she is gone for him to have to adjust again.

So far all the puppies have been doing great on house training and Brummy is as well perfect so far. (now that I have typed that there is bound to be a accident though ) but I expect that.

I have started with naming words, pee, poo, bed, crate, stop (along with hand signal) etc. Dont dogs learn words faster if they are with hand signals? I think I read that somewere. He is such a shy little guy and still very shakey. Sitting here with me chewing on a chew bone

How many times a day approx. do they need to poo? :

So far he refuses to go in the kitchen He will stand at the doorway and cry for me. I have to carry him to the back door then sit him down put on harness and leash and take him out then when I bring him back in do the same in reverse.

One really nice thing about having him in here is that he is a mini vaccum cleaner loving that

Brummy has a small hernia were his umbilical cord was. How big a deal is this? I have seen worse really my dog of almost 18yrs when I was still at home had one that stuck out about half a inch and never caused her trouble. Brummy's is most noticable when you pick him up but can be seen while he is walking around to. He is the only 1 out of the litter that has one.

P.S. Please tell me it is ok to let him nap on me :

I hope so because that's Pip's favorite spot to nap. I usually have to move him next to me to make room for Miss A or I have Miss A on one leg and Pip on the other.

Yes, it's absolutely OK that he naps on you. He is going through a huge transition and it's good for him to feel like you're physically present. I think that you'll probably see some pretty major behavior changes (becoming a lot more confident) in the coming days and weeks.

An umbilical hernia is no big deal as long as the stomach wall is closed. You can poke around and play with it--you won't hurt him. If you can feel that there is smooth muscle under the hernia, then it's just cosmetic and you can have it removed when he's neutered if you feel like it. If you can feel a slit or a hole in the muscle, that's a little more of a concern.

I hadnt messed with it much at all but I will check it the next time he decides to be still long enough. Right now he is playing ball with the kids and getting a nice little popcorn treat no way can the kids eat it without most ending up on the floor.

Oh I almost forgot I was working with him a bit ago on the sit command and he picked up on what I wanted so fast it was amazing. Course he hasnt got it totally yet but within half a minute when I would say sit and he calmed enough to really listen his little bumm hit the floor really fast for that treat.

I gave him the cats bed, since she decided when I got it that it was beneith her royal highnesses notice and has never used it. He actually will grab the fur and suck on it. It is adorable but kinda makes me sad to since he is missing his mama. Jill will let him and Pinky still nurse for a few seconds but she refuses to let the other girl Gizmo do so. I think Gizmo bites her because she really dosnt have milk left.

Awww little Brummy.
Both of my dogs have hernias. And I had a colt with one-his was large and being a horse not entirely safe. I never did anything for the dogs, but with my colt I pushed it all back up a couple of times day until the hole pretty much closed. Then we(vet and I) wrapped elastoplast around his middle to keep everything tight until the hole closed all the way. When the elastoplast came off he had a wee little button where his bely button was.
There was the option of putting him under, rolling him over to surgically fix it(a procedure I had assisted on once before), OR clamping it with two metal pieces that are screwed together then tightening it each day until the hernia fell of and the skin had healed together, OR the pushing and taping.
Surgery is risky for horses, and Im not into the pain of clamping, so I chose option three and it worked:

Finn naps on us all the time, too.

WTG Brummy for learning to sit! Finn did the same thing -- these are some bright dogs we have here!

Finn still HATES the leash. He pulls back against it (I don't tug in the other direction or anything, just stand still) and has actually caused himself pain (he yelps). I'm worried that he is going to really hurt his neck.

This morning he was on the leash and I had him in the "boring" spot of the yard to go pee/poop and he was pulling/whining/fighting. I started to let him go in the direction he wanted, and he just moved to a different part of the boring corner and went poop. So I guess that was a success, even though he went where he wanted, instead of where I wanted him to go... is it? A success?

I tried taking him for a walk the other night, but had we actually made it anywhere it would have been more like a "drag"... I'm glad it was dark and the neighbours couldn't see. And that was with treats to bribe him with!

Any tips?

It's OK for him to walk you for a little while, until he learns that the leash is not a bad thing. Letting him drag the leash around when supervised is a good thing. You can also go where you know he's going to be happy and excited and be pretty much thrilled to go in any direction (for Elvis that's the lake, where he can run along the beach and sniff bad things and roll in piles of goo) so when you urge him to go in a particular direction he doesn't fight too hard.

And yes, there's a little bit of dragging. NOT A LOT. I do NOT want you thinking that I'm telling you to drag your puppy along. I mean you get the leash right up high on his neck, under his chin, get him beside you, and say "Yay! Let's go!" and just GO. They usually kind of stumble/walk a couple of steps (that's the little bit of dragging) and then figure that it's a lot easier to just walk. KEEP MOVING FORWARD. You're of course never doing this to the point of choking the puppy or anything like that. It's more like what you do when you need to leave a grocery aisle and your kid is hanging back and whining.

This: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-5Mw3vd3WI

is a video that shows about what I'd expect from a puppy who doesn't know the lead. See how the dog is fighting but they keep gently moving forward? I would be stopping and reassuring the dog more often than this trainer does, but the concept is about the same--if you say walk, you WILL make it at least a few steps forward, the MOMENT the puppy gives in and jumps forward you praise and get excited, go a couple more steps, stop and reassure, walk forward.

Brummy is doing better with a harness than with just a collar. The harness I have looks like this one http://www.gollygear.com/tmbr_harn.htm it is a step in harness. He only wears it going outside and he dosnt pull on it much at all. The collar he was pulling on and I was worried he was gonna hurt his neck.

I have a bit of a problem a bit ago dd tried to pick Brummy up out of my lap and he growled at her I know that some behaivor is acceptable but I dont want things to get out of control.

How should I or should I correct this kind of thing if it happens again?



On a funny note (least to me) Brummy met dh for the first time last night and they did not hit it off at all. Brummy barks at him Dh though it was because he used nose spray laying on the couch but when dh got up later and was talking to him he got barked at again.

I told dh that Brummy knows his thoughts dh has agreed to let him stay in as long as I can keep things clean ie the floor picked up and keep him using the bathroom outside : If I cant keep up then we will re-evaluate things.

Pip has been doing the same thing. We're working on it.

On a side note, Pip is asleep in one of my wraps right now.

Final Update:



Pinky, Wrinkles (Pippin), Highball (Elvis), Finn & Blaze (Clarke) Are now in their permanent homes. : and doing very well

I decided to go ahead and let Brummy go and he is currently in a foster home with thekimballs who will find his perfect match I am sure.

Gizmo is still with my brother and we are all working with her teaching her all kinds of new things.

Jill disappeared 2 days before she was due to go in to be spayed We do not have proof but it is pretty much a given that the lady who took her the first time did so again :

I want to once again send out my most sincere thanks to everyone who helped me find the perfect home for these puppies and gave me such great advice through it all. It is something I will remember the rest of my life and look back on with fondness. :

Pinky is now Trixie, and doing super.

Brummy is now Bramble, as long as he is with us (my sister's ex-husband's last name is Brum, so we needed to change it slightly). I am looking for a home verrrrry slooooowwwlly because he is such a great little guy. But I am taking applications for families in the New England area, if anyone is just reading this thread now and wants in on the cool puppy action. He would do super with a family, I'd prefer kids over 5 just because he's so tiny and mouthy/vocal, but if it was an experienced JRT or dachshund family that requirement wouldn't apply.

Love the name Trixie I had a beautiful Mutt with that name many years ago DD also loves the name I have been giving her updates and showing her pictures as I get them so she can stay involved. She was not happy about Brummy (Bramble) leaving us but she has adjusted very well.

Awww.... yay for all these sweet puppies finding their forever homes!

MCat, we can't thank you enough -- you got all these little guys off to such a great start, and it really shows!

Finn is doing awesome. He's got SUCH long legs, and everywhere we go people just fall in love with him. In fact, this weekend we were camping with my in-laws and MIL was Finn-sitting while the rest of us were swimming... some guy tried to buy Finn on the spot!

He's still sweet and snuggly, but can be such a turkey at times... typical puppy behaviour. He has his last set of shots in a few weeks, then he'll start puppy classes. He's doing awesome with sit, down, high five and manners (where he waits until we give him the okay to snag the treat) -- I have no doubt he'll pass with flying colours. He's also doing great on the leash -- this past weekend he really seemed to realize what it's all about. I'm sure it helped that he had my in-laws two long-haired Doxies to follow around.

The kids go back to school next week, and I'm so glad I'll have Finn to keep me company -- it will be too quiet with the girls gone everyday, and the boy in preschool two mornings per week. But those days Finn and I will be going for long walks.
