Devil Dog

Harley is nearly 16 weeks old and he is growing like a weed. He had his last puppy check up this past week and is up to a whopping 33 pounds. He has basically tripled in size since we got him back in June. We still affectionately refer to him as Devil Dog due to the one or two hours per day he goes crazy. He still loves to eat and rawhide bones have become his favorite obsession. I'm sure this will continue now that he is losing his puppy teeth and it is only a matter of time before the permanent ones come in. He has finally learned to go down stairs, but it is neither graceful or on his own accord. He has now figured out that he is big enough to jump up onto the furniture, but he jumps down quickly when either Mom or Dad give him the evil eye. He kennels well and on command, and will sleep through the night which has been a skill he has had since almost day 1. He still dislikes loud noises, especially lawnmowers, and he cannot figure out his own reflection. He also dislikes deer and acts all tough when he spots them in our backyard. He is definitely progressing well, and making himself right at let's just see how he does when we add a baby to the mix!?!?
