Otto update. Let's Tuesday he'll be 6 months. Gettin pretty chunky - 40+ lbs, no more puppy teeth/breath,[More:]
graduated from puppy kindergarten, continued bonding with Simon the cat.

We're still working on manners - he gets terribly excited when greeting people, and he's improving with his gentle leader on walks. His little bare belly is filling in with peach fuzz, and he has a spot on each knee where the fur is wearing differently because he lays in frog position on the floor all the time.

This weekend we took him swimming both days -he bounds right in, his little tail a furry rudder! We wanted to see if he'd jump off the dock b/c he was trying to do it from the bank. He did! Scared us for a sec b/c he went all the way under but he popped back up, got the stick and swam to shore.

Sometimes I just look at him when he's snoozing & drown in adorableness & amazement that he was so teeny when we got him!!! Those little black lines for eyes, and he growls and wags his tail in his sleep. Massive kyootness.

Oh my! He's so handsome! And so smart!

Watch when he swims and you should be able to see him blow bubbles when his head's under. When our chocolate was a puppy, he used to throw his conk into his wading pool, then stick his nose under to retrieve it and there would always be a little stream of bubbles coming out of his nose.

Thanks for that, Chewie. The photo of him and Simon is great. What a handsome young man he's turning out to be.

That first shot looks like they're rehearsing a dance routine.

By the way, we saw an episode of "It's The Dog, Or Me" (or some name quite similar to that - too lazy to look it up) that featured a contraption that blows bacon-flavored edible bubbles as a dog exercise thingy. We are so wanting a bacon-flavored bubble blower now.

And not just for us.
