A Pupdate on Nugget/Fitz - with pictures!

Fitz and big brother Odin

Eric and Leah sent me an update on Fitz (formerly Nugget) with permission to post here. I just love the photos, especially seeing Fitz and his big brother Odin sleeping curled up together - how great that they are best buddies already!
Here's the update:

As promised, here are a few of the pictures so far. Our other dog Odin (14 months old) is constantly being confused as Fitz's mother/father. It wasn't until we got them together that we realized just HOW similar they are. Right down to the coloring on the tails. Its really quite something. Odin (another SPCA pup) is a St. Bernard/ Husky/who knows cross. Odin lost his big brother in October, and was a little bummed out. Luckily Odin (who loves everyone) and Fitz are best buddies. The play together, they sleep together, and it seems that they usually eat and drink out of the bowl at the same time.

Training Fitz has been a bit of a breeze as well. He has had no problem with his crate training. We used the same strategy that worked so well for Odin. We keep one of the food and water dishes in the crate and keep it open at all times. At night we take turns sitting/laying in the crate with him until he falls asleep. Also for the last 3 nights, he has only woken up once. He is just such a good little guy.

I luvs my new big brother!

Look how nicely we sit!

Thanks for making my day, Eric and Leah! Give both pups an extra scritch from me.

That first picture made me say "awwww" out loud - so cute and I am so happy that Fitz has found his furever home. Merry Christmas to you Jean and your family (4-legged and 2-legged!). xo Katherine and Possum

I can't believe how much Fitz looks like our little
Major. Hopefully there will be a puppy reunion soon!

Gerri, I agree - Fitz and Major look very much alike, but Major has more black hairs sprinkled among the fawn on his back and sides - that was how I could tell them apart.
I agree a reunion will be fun - perhaps the beginning of March, when they will all be six months old and we will be able to get a good idea of what they are going to look like as adults (and how huge the biggest ones are really going to be! ha ha!).
