Oh hey! I’m a big brother!

I hope you all are fans of our facebook page- because even though we don’t post a whole ton there, we DO post (Unlike the cobwebs going on, on this blog!)  But for those of you who aren’t… Chocko’s a big brother!  You didn’t think I’d be cooking that human forever did ya?

The little peanut is now 3 months old, and not so little anymore!  Chocko is doing fantastic with his baby human in the household.

august 2013 175Initially, Chocko experienced some anxiety – he would pace and wine, seeming confused and not entirely sure what to make of the serious change.  We made sure he kept his distance till he was pretty composed, and it only took but a week or two till he was pretty indifferent to the little guy.  Our biggest issue now?!  any guesses?

Controlling his licker!  All he wants to do is lick (this is not new… this is how he’s always been!)  But obviously I can always tell him no and get up off the floor when I’ve had enough kisses, the little human cannot.  So we are making progress in this area, but it’s far from perfect.

We spend a LOT of time out walking and even some running recently (although a certain 4 legged someone has lost his stamina!)


Hmmm, what else?  Anything you guys are curious about?  I’d love to hear from you!  I will be honest…the bloggings has subsided over many months (even before our summer hiatus) – mostly because the reason I started this blog… to share with you foster experiences and getting adoptables to find their forever home, was obviously not the current topics I’d be writing about.  And there are SO many other wonderful blogs, I stopped pressuring myself to “think of something already!”

So you probably won’t be hearing from us tons and tons, but if you ever need a point in the right direction for some pittie-full bloggings or adorable adoptables (or if you just need a Chocko brother update) we’ll be happy to help!

    • Good question! We actually don’t know if what we are doing is effective- but when the baby is on the floor and Chocko sniffs, we praise him. When he starts licking we say “enough” and if he doesn’t stop, we gently move him aside. When he goes up to the baby and gives him a quick kiss on the feet or hands, and chooses to walk away on his own, we also praise him. It’s the continuous licking we are trying to extinguish! If he’s really hyper, then we say “enough” and move him out of the room…. but we are still figuring out if this is working- it seems to some! open to suggestions too!

  1. We love seeing your experience! We are going through the same thing…we have a 2-year jumpstart though. Flower (our pit) LOVES Jackson and has been so kind. I think she has as much fun with Jackson as he does with her. Good luck and have fun!

  2. Congratulations!! Was so happy to see this update & your son is BEAUTIFUL!! So glad Chocko adjusted well-I knew he would! Love the Pit Bull onesie-we had a few for our son too! We just added another boy to our family-he’ll be 2 weeks old on Monday! Our dogs handled this new addition like champs-guess its old news now after you have the first one LOL! Good luck & enjoy every single moment with the baby bc it is so true what they say-it does go quick!
