Meet our tiny new pup Lionel, who joined us here at Thrifty Towers just over a week ago. Lionel puppy, is 12 weeks old and fluffy little ball of fun. He’s as stubborn as muck and one of the naughtiest little scamps I have ever come across but he has certainly brightened our lives.If you have been reading for a while, you’ll know we also have an adorable 2 year old Yorkshire Terrier who goes by the name of Jarvis. Jarvis wasn’t overly keen on little L-dawg at first but they are slowly starting to get on together and muck about in the garden, mouth at each other in the kitchen or play tug of war with our sitting room rug without much fuss or squealing.
Lionel is a bright little spark and can already obey the sit, lay down, stand and come commands and he is starting to get the hang of where he needs to be for toilet training (outside, I can’t be doing with pee pads) but he is incredibly stubborn when it actually comes to doing anything once in the necessary place.
After a couple of sleepless nights, he is slowly settling into his crate and I have him on a lead in the house so he can learn about boundaries and good behaviour. He is a sweet little chap and I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot more of him either here on the blog or over on my Instagram.
I’ve shared my tips on how to raise a puppy on a budget previously but I’d love to hear your tips in the comments section below.
