Carson continues to be a wonderful puppy, and he's growing like a weed! And getting more and more beautiful by the day. He's got a fun-loving personality and has no fear of anything -- he tries to entice my old, grumpy Maggie into wrestling on a regular basis, and her "leave me alone you crazy puppy" growls don't deter Carson at all! It's quite cute!
Carson has learned his name, and will usually come when we call him. He has also learned to sleep peacefully in his crate, and stays quiet through the night now.
Right now, our main project is housetraining, and I'd say we're about 75% of the way there. Carson does most of his business outside, but has occasional lapses.
We're also working on directing those sharp little puppy teeth toward bones and chew toys and away from my legs and our furniture! Carson is working really hard at learning which things are okay to chew on (and which are not), and I think he's doing quite well! He seems quite smart and picks up on things quickly -- I think he'll be fairly easy to train.
All in all, Carson is a delight to have around. He has such a cute face, and his tail is always wagging. I think his ears are having problems deciding whether he's a golden or a husky because most of the time, one ear is up like a husky while the other flops down like a golden! I'll sure miss him around here, but Carson is ready for his forever home.
