Today I am back with Alfie's second diarty and update for you all, I cannot believe it is his second month with us, the time has flown by like you wouldn't believe, I have so much to share with you all so let's get crackin'!
First off Alfie has reached two big milestones in his second month with his new family, he has been on his first walk (and many more after) you can read about his first walk here, he has also had his first puppy play date. The same day we got Alfie a friend of ours got their little West Highland Terrier - Casper! So once they had all been jabbed up and were able to go out on walks, we thought we'd introduce them, well that was a funny day for us all. Casper was showing Alfie who was boss basically and I think Alfie spent most of the time on his back wanting his belly rubbing bless.
Of course Alfie is still a little puppy at only 16 weeks old so whenever we do take him a walk or have a play on the garden or just after a busy day of being Alfie he seems to sleep quite a lot too. I don't think I've ever known a puppy to sleep as much as what he does, and in the most awkward positions too, I look at him and think goodness me boy you cannot be comfy.

In his bed upside down/ By the radiator / In my arms full stretch
Snuggled up in his bed/ Don't even ask/ Into a ball
Over the past month we have learnt a lot more what Alfie likes to do, what he likes to eat and rink and of course what he likes to chew when he has his 'naughty puppy' moments. To say we've had him two months he is almost fully house trained, he has the odd little wee accident (damn those fireworks) but apart from that he knows what he can and cannot chew and bite in the house. One of his favourite things to watch on TV has got to be the Paul O'Grady dogs programme, he happily sat and watched it every week in amazement, bless him. He also likes to have the leftovers of my tea that I leave at the bottom of the mug, but in his bowl of course. When 'naughty puppy' mode kicks in his favourite place to bite is the chair legs, some lovely marks and scratches coming along nicely there Alfie. Finally, because he can't have any chocolate cake when I bake, he tends to have the boxes to chew and run around with, he really is such a lovely little character.
Alfie also loves it when the camera comes out, as he tends to pose and yaps, I think he is really telling me to get his best side.
So that is all for this month sweeties, I can't think of anything else to share with you all yet, but I shall jot his moments down and share with you all next month, yes next month will almost be Christmas - god help us when we put the tree up!!!
