20 Pounds of Mocha Swirl

If I had to describe Cupcake in one phrase and it could not be naughty or bitty it would be People Dog. She just loves people which is good because people just love her.

When she sees someone new she does the bulldog full body wiggle which is just to stinking cute.

She is now approaching 14 weeks and boy has she grown since we brought her home at 9 weeks old.

At 9 weeks she weighed in at a whopping 11.5 pounds. At 10 weeks she was 14.3 pounds, 12 weeks she was 17 pounds, and at her vet appointment last night, 13.5 weeks she was 20 pounds!

Her feet are like dinner plates and she is growing faster than Daisy Mae (our old Bullmastif who topped the scales at 120) ever did.

I am not saying Cupcake will be as big as Daisy Mae. No way. But I am starting to think she is going to be closer to 60 pounds than 45!

For milestones, I would say she is about 99% house trained. She doesn't pee in the house, she goes to the door to be let out, she hasn't pooped in the house in over a week. We made her crate smaller so she will not have an accident in there and our nights are much better.

She does okay on her leash but she still doesn't like to walk long distances (anything more than a block is long to her) but it has been so hot we don't push it too much.

She changed up her puppy food and she is way less stinky.

She loves Pete, the big orange cat. Her favorite thing to do is lay on him and bark in his face.

She is terrified of Eddie, the old man cat. If Eddie is in the room Cupcake tenses up and will not go near him.

She is bitty and naughty and yesterday she grabbed a bowl of paint the girls left on the table in the playroom, got it on her foot and ran around the house. My brother in law Ryan and I proceeded to scrub pink paint off the hardwood floors for the next ten minutes while Shawn took her outside to get cleaned up.

Overall she is a good pup and everyone is happy to have her. And of course she already has a million names - Cupcake, The Cakes, Cakes, Cuppy, Big Dummy, and Mocha Swirl.

Hasta Luego,

We had a English growing up whose name was Magoo. He could fart like a human and loved to lie on the AC vent and cool off his privates. I loved that dog
