Thankfully, he’s a little better at chewing his food now, but there are the odd moments when I think he’s going to go through it all over again. We just have to make sure his food is small enough for his throat – he’s in the midst of losing his baby teeth and growing his adult ones, so chewing for him isn’t as easy as it may be for us.
A new challenge: A dog who doesn’t like to walk. Milo goes on a walk every single day. Sometimes they’re short 10-minute walks, and other times I like to take him out for 45 minutes and upwards. One thing is certain every time I get his harness and lead however – he doesn’t want to budge from out of the house. Sometimes I’ll spend 10 minutes outside my house trying to get him to walk a few steps, let alone get a whole walk done. It’s disappointing because I had really hoped to get my own fitness levels up along with those of the dogs during these walks, but I’m going to persist in taking him out every day and trying to ensure he enjoys his time out of the house.

Before too long I know he’ll have doubled in size once again and I’ll be wondering where his puppy years went! That’s why I find it absolutely vital to now be spending as much time as possible with him, enjoying every moment and making memories – such as this diary – which I’ll be able to look back on in a few years and smile at.
