Well, today I am 3 weeks old and I weigh 1.65 pounds. Barb says she is sorry we are so late tonight. Our friend, Father Dolan, is in the hospital and Barb was gone all day. When she got home this afternoon for a little while, she wormed my mom, Brown Sugar, and me and took my pictures. She went back to see Father and now is home and sending my message and pictures to all of you!
I am able to walk and I know Barb's voice. Tomorrow she hopes to get my new pen in the kitchen ready for me so I can progress well this next week....I'll be learning to walk better this week and also I will begin to know where the paper is so I can get my housetraining underway. My mom will still be with me and she will like being in the kitchen too....it's nearer the food!
I wish all of you the best and will write again next week!
Hello Rosemary and Everyone Else who loves me!!!!!!
Well, I am 4 weeks old today and am really the most perfect little guy you ever met!!!!!
I weigh 1.90 pounds and am rather hefty for my age!!!!!....it must be that I get everything my mom Brown Sugar has!!!!
I have had a very good week. I love to lick Barb's nose. I love to bark at her when she barks at me!!!!!!.....I also love to follow all the big dogs around the patio, I am getting used to the weirdest noises so I'll always be a brave little boy; also, I have tried to eat the big dogs' food, and best of all!!!!, my new mom and dad have named me Finnegan! I love my new name! Barb has found some Irish-like materials and so today I have one as my background in my new pictures!
Also, my mom, Brown Sugar, and I have moved into the kitchen and I am now in the big pen that will teach me many new things. Barb is sending a couple of pictures of the type of arrangement she makes for us so we can learn how to go potty in the right places!
I hope you are all very well and know that Barb, Brown Sugar and I love every one of you.
Hello Everybody....especially Rosemary!
Well, I am 5 weeks old today and I now weigh 2 pounds! Have I ever had a good week!!!!
I am running with the big dogs now and Casey Jones is my guardian angel. He lets me sleep under his neck on the Under The Kitchen Table Dog Bed and he is very gentle with me. He likes to give me a bath whenever I get near his mouth. My mom, Sugar, likes to push me around as she loves on me....and Princess Starlight Express and Satchmo think I am the best toy they ever had. Barb has to watch them with me so they don't get carried away and hurt me by mistake.
I know how to go pee and poop on the newspaper in my cage and in the kitchen. Barb is sending a very weird picture of my pee! Sometimes I miss in the kitchen, though, because the papers are in a far corner!
Also, I am learning to play with toys. I especially like one of the balls. I like to try to push it and then somehow, my whole body is on top of it and there I am....stuck in the air! Also, I am a roly-poly little boy and I sometimes fall over backward as I try to maneuver the kitchen with everybody all over the place. I also barked twice this week! Was Barb ever surprised!!!!
I am beginning to know my name and I now eat three times a day. Also, I know how to drink water. This week, Barb took me up to see BJ along with my mom Brown Sugar, Princess Starlight Express, Satchmo and Busy. It was a wonderful day! I played on the floor until I dropped to sleep in my mother's dog crate and slept there until Barb packed us all up and headed for home.
Barb didn't take the regular pictures this week....instead, she has taken some very short videos of my doing my thing!
Until next week, I love
Chaos reigns supreme here in Video clip #4! That is the ball I keep getting hung up on! It squeaks!...and it is so much fun. My dad Wing thinks the ball is an alien and he tries to kill it whenever he gets the chance to play with it!
This is all for this
Hello Rosemary and also everyone else who knows me and loves me!!!!
I'm 6 weeks old today and I weigh 2.30 pounds! Barb and all the dogs and our cat, Frankie, think I am the greatest little puppy they have ever seen! I get to play with all of them three times a day on the kitchen floor and I want you all to know I am very brave. Princess Starlight Express loves to turn me over on my back and tickle me! Satchmo thinks I am a big dog and treats me like I am his size. Barb has to watch me so I don't get in trouble with him because I charge him and growl at him.
Casey Jones licks my face and everywhere else. I'm not as big as his head, but I'm not afraid! I love him!
I like to zoom around our cat Frankie and she lets me do it to my heart's content! Bebe is grouchy with me and so is Taffy. I think Taffy wishes she was my mother, but my mother is the sweetest dog Barb has and I really love her. She still keeps me clean and plays rough with me so I'll be ready for anything when I grow up.
My dad Wing is good to me too. He likes to check me out every day. Busy is so busy barking at the dogs next door he doesn't seem to know I am here and Hushpuppy likes to try to talk to me. She makes the funniest noises! Jazz is trying to get me to roll and follow the big ball in the kitchen.....and Oreo and Ou La La love me too! I am a very happy little puppy.
Barb wormed my mom and me today. That was the second time for me. I have learned to eat pieces of dry dog food and I love the way it crunches in my mouth. I have all my baby teeth now also.
Barb is going to try to put the new pictures on now. She sometimes has trouble with the pictures, but she doesn't mind the trouble because it is worth it for all of you to be able to see me grow up!.
I love you all!

Hi Everybody!!!!....especially my new mom Rosemary!!!!!
Well, I have had a very good week!....Barb has had me walking all over the kitchen all week (and up and down the patio walk!!!!) on a real dog leash! I am very good at it!....I run ahead of her....and as she catches up with me, she tells me how GOOD I am!!!! I really have her snowed! I weigh 2.60 pounds today.
You would not believe what Barb did today!....she went over to Bonifay and brought home a tiny female TFT to play with me! Let me just tell you....I hate her! I was the top dog here and if anyone ever bothered me, Barb would put that one in his place, and I was king of the hill!....Well, this horrid little baby hollers and screams when I alpha her and Barb gets on MY case!!!!!! She tells me it is for my own good as I have to learn to get along with everyone in life....I have one more week to learn that lesson so I ask you all to please pray for me because I don't like any competition!!!!!
I am eating real dog food now and I like it very much. Also, I had my first shot today and I was brave. I did not even yelp when Barb put the needle in me!!!!!
I can't wait until you come for me because I am going to be the best little TFT that ever lived!
Love you all!!!!!
Well! I am now 8 weeks old and I weigh 3 pounds!
This is a happy time and a sad time around here. Barb knows I am going to my new home Saturday and she is going to miss me, but I am ready for my new home now and I look forward to this Saturday when Rosemary and George are coming for me.
I love to romp on my leash and I am eating very well. I can go up and down steps and I usually come when I am called. Barb lets the new little girl Gracie sleep and live with me and I have grown to love little Gracie!
The big dogs and Frankie, the cat, all love us. We really get away with murder chasing them and trying to show them how brave we are! Our big love of a Poodle, Casey Jones, likes to pick us up off the kitchen floor when we hang on to ends of the toy Barb made for us. She is always afraid we will fall off, but so far, we have not fallen off!
Gracie and I are getting very good at going to the bathroom outside now. We still can go on the papers in our pen, but we are starting to wait a little while to see if Barb will take us outside so we can show her how smart we are!
I have had all my first shots and been well wormed! Tomorrow Barb is taking me to Doctor Flowers for my health certificate.
I have to say goodbye now and I wish you all the very best!
P.S. I hope you enjoy my pictures!
