We have had Nixon for a little over a month now. I think he has almost doubled in size since the day we brought him home. He is a little over 3 months old now and into everything. He has to sniff and lick everything. I think he has tried to chew on every pillow, chair,  shoe and everything else he can reach. Fortunately he hasn't destroyed or ruined anything. (Knock on wood) Nixon does have a few favorite things that he loves to do.

-Scratch at the cupboard where we keep his food. He would constantly eat if we allowed him to. We are already down to feeding him from 3 times a day to twice a day
-Try and reach the toilet paper in the bathroom. He has unraveled one roll already
-Loves to jump into the laundry basket
- He loves to play and run laps around our little place. He has a little hiding spot under a chest in our living room. Not sure how much longer he we be able to fit underneath it
- Loves to jump onto the dish washer when we are loading dishes
-He really likes to fetch and bring you back his toy
-He loves car rides already, even though he usually ends up falling asleep in the car
-He now knows what the leash means, and loves to go on little walks
-Nixon is great with other little dogs and just wants to run around and play

 He is definitely a mamma's boy. If Brooke is home he has to know where she is at all times, and follows her around every where she goes. We don't know why and we can't get him to stop but he constantly has to be nipping and biting at Brooke's ankles. He doesn't do it to me, just Brooke. He really hasn't learned what the word, "NO!" means. Hopefully soon.
