    Smile 13 week vet visit! New pics added!

    Wow! Oliver is 13 weeks today and he is HUGE! He weighed in at a whopping 8.2#'s at the vet today! My how he has grown in a month. He got his puppy shots and checked out perfect. I talked with the vet about a problem we've encountered with him. She calls it "submissive urination". He has done this with my Mom and also with strangers that have approached him to greet him. He just gets soo excited and even if I've had him outside right before, he still eeks out a few drops of urine...annoying. So the vet said he will hopefully outgrow it but now to scold him cuz he doesn't know it's even happening. She suggested I tell my Mom to ignore him when she comes in and greet the kids, etc. but not him. Then when he has settled down she can greet him. She's coming tomorrow so we'll give it a try. I hope he outgrows it cuz it is an embarrassing problem! Let me know if any of you have any other suggestions or have encountered this issue with your dogs.

    Other than that he is doing great and is nearly potty trained! We haven't had an accident (other than the submissive peeing) in 6 days now! Woo-Hoo! He is sleeping in until after 7 a.m. now (YES!) and loves going for walks now that all our snow is finally melted. Finally, here are 2 pics I took tonight!

    My 8 pound ball of fluff!

    Aww Oliver is so great! My dog, Tia, does the submissive urination thing..and it is annoying. We usually have people greet her outside if possible.

    Our Rotti did the submissive urinating as well... and when a Rotti does it, it's not just a few drops! She did outgrow it though at about 8 or 9 months old. It probably would have been quicker except that she developed a very bad UTI which backed up her potty training a bit. The advice you vet gave was good. When we discovered Roxy doing it, when people came to the house, we asked them jsut to walk in rather than knock or ring the doorbell. Then Roxy wouldn't expect anyone. When the guest came in, they would not bend over to greet her or look her in the eyes or anything. They would walk into the kitchen (linoleum floor so if she did leak a bit, it was an easy clean-up) and then get on the floor to greet her. By this time, she figured no one would pay attention to her so she'd calmed down.

    Try different techniques and hopefully one will work.

    Otherwise, good to hear that he is otherwise happy and healthy. He sure looks great! And at 13lbs, he weighs what Roxy weighed at about 3-4 weeks! Haha. She grew like a weed too but she didn't know she was getting bigger and bigger and insited on stepping on us or trying to sit on our laps. Hehe.

    See videos of Loki and the boys here!

    Heidi used to do that - it usually wasn't just a few drops either :P She has outgrown it now, though.

    Schumi still does it, at 6 years, but only with my younger son (23 years) when he comes to visit.

    I've never had a dog before so I'm not sure about the urination thing but I swear Oliver is getting cuter everyday! Chubbier too, if you look at the 2nd picture!

    Oliver loves chasing my son's soccer ball! He will run after it forever and when he catches it he wrestles as you can see in the 2nd photo! LOL!



    Check out the tongue! He worked up quite a sweat!
