Buzz: One Month On...


Hello Lovelies, I hope you're all well! Today marks a whole month since we first bought Buzz home, so I thought I'd write his first update post and just give you some more information on him as in the last post I wanted to keep it pretty short and just introduce him to you all!

Buzz is now 11 weeks old and is growing incredibly fast and weighs around 8kg. When we went to pick him up we were provided with a diet sheet which instructed us to feed him on Pro Plan Puppy Food for Large Breeds four times a day, which we have been doing, until next week when he will drop down to three meals. He's always been really good with eating and knows what din-dins means and he always gets SO excited.

The thing I was most nervous about before getting him, was how he would sleep at night. Before we even had found a particular puppy we already decided that we would crate train him. From what I've seen online there seems to be mixed opinions on this, but we made sure to do a good amount of research before going ahead and in the end we thought it would be the best for him. As he was only 7 weeks old when we brought him home, he was very nervous and he felt really safe in the crate. We didn't have any problems with sleeping, he cried a little the first couple of nights - but nothing major. He's now in a pretty good routine, we throw his teddies into the crate and he knows it's bed time and he will get into his bed straight away!


I'm really happy with how things are going with his training, we haven't knuckled down and done anything that amazing yet, but he knows how to sit, give you his paw, high five, stay and lie down on command. 


Vaccinations were something we were eager to get over and done with, so we could start taking him for walks and he had his first one just before he was 8 weeks and the second one when he was 10 weeks. Shortly after having his second vaccination he started to become really sleepy and wanted to cuddle alot more, which was definitely strange because he is more of a playful puppy than cuddly. Five days later he had a lump the size of a tennis ball on his back, it was so heartbreaking and I was just thinking the worst. It turns out the vaccination caused an abscess and we still haven't really been told why, we're still waiting waiting for a phone call to get to the bottom of it. We took him to a different vets to treat his lump and they gave him four needles in an attempt to reduce the lump as much as possible and they also gave him some anti-biotics. At one point it was looking like he would need to go back to be sedated and have it completely removed, but it is slowly going down now and he's definitely back to his usual self!




We've now also finally taken him for his first walks! At the moment of writing this he doesn't really get the concept and decides to sit down alot, but once he gets going he really enjoys it!

And I think that's all I have to say at the moment. I'll probably do another one of these posts when it's been three months since we've had him and I can imagine he will have grown an awful lot more by then!
