Luke has a problem that I don't know how to fix!

Seems like all I do is ask for help with Luke, and it seems like I need some advice one more time.  Let me say, beyond the puppy biting, barking and jumping, he is the best, most well-behaved and sweetest dog ever!

First, a little background.  I also have a very sweet teenage grandson that joined in the countdown for Luke coming and could hardly wait.  The first time he came down to meet him a couple weeks ago, he got down on the floor and played, but nothing out of the ordinary and…

Update From Luke

Hi Everybody, this is Luke.  Just thought I had better check in and see how your week is going. 

Things keep picking up around here and this week was really busy!  I was walking on the beach when a big wave, at least 8 inches high, came out of nowhere and attacked me.  I wanted to look cool and since I couldn’t swim, I pretended I was surfing and just rode the wave to shore, almost a foot away. 

Then I met a big, big dog that was a golden retriever, just like my other…

Luke's New Friends

My primary goal with Luke is to see that he makes lots of people friends and puppy friends, while he is still so young.  My other dogs were never too social.  He loves the world and I want him to know the world loves him.  He met lots of people last weekend at work with me and also during the walks we have been taking.  Interesting fact - he is afraid of no dog and only 3 have rejected him.  One, who looked like she spent at least 2 hours a week at a beauty salon and two others that looked…

Luke and I need help QUICK! I made a huge mistake and did not start putting him in a pen in the house, during the day when I first brought him home a week ago. He has been so good and no trouble, sleeps in a crate at night, listens and usually minds, have certain rooms blocked off, he is definitely strong willed and tries to be the pack leader but knows I am in charge, etc., etc., etc. All of a sudden I realized I was going back to work on Friday. He can come to work with me with no trouble,…

Luke and Snickerdoodle

Hi Everybody,

My name is Luke and this is my friend, Snickerdoodle.  She’s really not a doodle and she doesn’t talk much, but she seems nice enough and is really soft, so I think I’ll let her stay.

I just got home for the first time.  It took forever for my mom to pick me up and then she put me in this thing that looked like a square bird cage, so I couldn’t get out while we drove home.  She is going to need a lot of training, I can tell that already.  There are lots and lots…
