Yesterday I had Cody out running. He slipped pretty hard and yelped and crawled to me in pain. He twisted his paw but all better today. He’s 7months old 53 lbs about a week ago. He’s developing a Mohawk. They grow up too quick.
Fortunately, puppies are rubbery. They bounce back quickly from injuries.
I got a pup back in Sep, and she loved to attack my feet. So she was constantly underfoot the first few weeks I had her, and got kicked, stepped on, and tripped over countless times. She's none the worse for wear.
My wife and I got a rescue puppy on May 9 of this year. He was found on the highway the day before. Mange on tail and hind paws and intestinal worms. 7 1/2 pounds and guestimated to be 10 weeks by Vet.
The "little" nipper is now around 8 months and 60 pounds of pee, poop, play, sleep and eat with a tad bit of mean some times.
As someone told me when we got the puppy "Your life will change forever". and it has most times very good, but sometimes trying.
And yest I stepped on his tail a couple of times. He has paid me back with bite and paw cuts....lol!
