Today marks 2 months since we adopted our puppy McCloud, nicknamed “MC” (left side of the photo). He’s now 4 months old. Our other dog Lotus is 2 years old.
I’m really pleased that both dogs get along. I wasn’t sure if they would because they have opposite personalities: Lotus is scared of everything and MC is scared of nothing. But the minute we let him out of his crate they run laps around the house together and play nonstop.
MC is definitely the stronger one. He can already yank the rope away from me during tug of war. Lotus is the faster dog and always gets to the ball first when we play fetch.
I think MC just about tripled in size in the past 8 weeks. Sometimes when I see him first thing in the morning, I could swear he has gained a pound overnight. When we went to get his vaccines, the veterinarian said he will probably be 70 or 80 pounds when fully grown. Sung is happy about that because he wished for a big dog.
I kind of miss when he was a cute tiny puppy, but not really. I’m just so freaking happy he is finally housebroken. And I’m looking forward to when he stops teething and grows out of his bitey phase.
My favorite things about him are his spotted paws, and his ears. A lot of times he will have one ear up and one ear down. He just started doing it this past week!
Even more adorable is how attached he’s gotten to Sung. That’s definitely his favorite human, He follows him around EVERYWHERE. When Sung’s at the sink doing dishes, MC curls up on his feet. When he’s out fixing his truck, MC is right beside him at all times. They will even sit and watch YouTube together.
I’m happy because the reason I wanted a second dog was for Lotus to have a sibling and also for Sung to have a buddy. Because Lotus is bonded to me like superglue, she never leaves my side . She’s so clingy and I love it. Whenever I lay down she tries to be next to me at all times. Does anyone else dog look this awkward?! 😆
