Newest Member of the Carpool

Sirius likes to ride to school with me to drop off and pick up Brooke.


As long as he gets to ride shotgun.

Single Black Lab

Lover not a Fighter
Sirius had all his puppy vaccinations and has been given a clean bill of health.
He is 14 weeks old and weighs in at 30 lbs.
Sirius is a morning puppy who enjoys playing in the kiddie pool, jumping on the trampoline and eating worms.
He does not like the vicious (half his size) doggies next door or staying on the tile.
And he dreams of being pony when he grows up.

Sirius Fun

Just thought I’d give you all an update on our little man, Sirius. He is now 12 weeks old and weighs about 23 lbs. We have had him one week and he has adjusted very well to life at Casa de Wente. He now follows me everywhere and thinks his purpose in life is to be my personal foot warmer, in fact he’s sleeping on my foot ¬†as I type. He has only had a handful of accidents in the house (which could’ve been prevented had we been watching him closer) and none in his kennel. He does cry when we put him in his kennel during the day, but he doesn’t cry at night anymore.

Sirius says we are coming along quite well with our training as well. He is helping teach the girls to pick up their toys and trash off the family room floor. And he has taken on the impossible task of trying to make me a morning person. Ha! I think we all know that will never happen, but I am becoming quite the early riser these days. At least I have an adorable little face and happy wagging tail to greet me.

While potty and kennel training we are also working on sit, stay and no. Next I think we’ll teach him to read and use the remote control.
