Finn Following Socks
As for a Finn update (no pictures today, I'll give you some doggy eye candy later this week), we had a major breakthrough last week. Finn started going downstairs and sitting by the back door when he needs to go outside! I'm so glad he figured out a way to tell us when he needs to go. He's not getting there 100% of the time yet (when you're playing with your toys and having a blast you don't always pay attention to what your body is telling you), but he's probably doing it around 90% of the time which I think is huge. We're very proud of him for getting the hang of the potty training and I figure that now that we have this part figured out, repetition should get us the rest of the way. He's 13 weeks old today and according to the vet at around 12 weeks, puppies have the muscle control both to hold it and to fully eliminate when they do go. The only downside to this is that Finn can be very quiet and a bit sneaky, so we have to follow him around constantly when he's playing because he can scoot downstairs and we won't even realize it. So, I tucked the ball of yarn under my arm and followed him around the house all weekend, knitting a sock. Go Finn!
*I got this yarn from the Simply Socks Yarn Company and if you haven't checked out their site, you should - its all sock yarn all the time! (There's a link in my sidebar, along with some of my other favorite Fiber Enablers.)
