Well good morning everyone. It has been some time since the last post on here. Seems weird that time has gone so fast this last year. So much has happened and yet it seems like a blink of an eye. Wouldn’t change anything if I could. Are you ready to begin the Roman updates? I am. Lets go…
As I said it has been almost a year already. In fact we are placing his birthday on July 10th since that is the best guess we could get from what we were told on how old he was when we got him. Let me say that again. He will be a year old! Wow. The year for him has gone fast and he grew at a ridiculous speed. Amazing what he turned out to be as well. I am very proud to be his dad and without his mom he also would not be the good boy he is today!
Since the last blog I am trying to recall anything that has occurred. Our family has been busy with traveling for graduations, prepping and placing our house for sale, and of course working. The dogs are best friends and love to play outside in the backyard when it is nice which its been raining so much here that their time outside has been limited but when they get out there is no holds barred with each other. Then after about 10-15 min or maybe even less Roman is done and will lay down in the shade or on the concrete patio to just watch his sister.
One recent development with him that we have noticed is his desire to become more of a 100 pound lap dog. He now wants to be on the couch or your lap more. He used to like attention but preferred the floor. This has changed unless he is hot then he wants to lay by an air vent. He is still so so verbal with his demands for attention when I come home or not touching him. Crazy!
This spring we changed our living room from carpet to laminate flooring and while we would vacuum at least every other day if not more to keep up with the dog hair but now… now with the laminate its like tumbleweeds of dog hair everywhere between the two of them. His coat is thick and shiny but the dude sheds like a mother. Goodness. We will literally clean is spotless and in ten minutes there is a pile moving across the floor with the air. Where did that come from? Oh well its part of them and we love it.
With the changes we made to the flooring, Roman decided it was a good idea to chew on the new wood quarter round while his mother was showering and then in the mornings after he was let outside to go to the bathroom and then back to the bedroom floor to sleep until someone got up he chose to chew on the bed comforter and spread stuffing everywhere. We have stopped both and it was short lived but considering he did not chew anything up as a pup really this was not a big deal and easily replaceable. German Shepherds and boredom don’t mix which anyone who knows the breed is aware of.
We are so happy to have Roman in our lives and he has been a super addition to our family. In fact if my wife could have it her way we would get two more!!! Yeah she cra cra just kidding lol. Actually if we had the room I am also down for at least one more. Just don’t have the space for one in our current house and no room at all for another kennel in the bedroom. Although Roman and Macy only use them when we are not home at this point.
That’s about all I can think of for now. Since it has been a quick year and I was not able to stay up to date week to week as I had hoped and even though he is going to be one already I am not done with this blog. I plan to keep it going for as long as I can so someday we can go back through and read it as a family to remember his antics and life. I may not have been as motivated if it was for my wife, our kids, and of course you the readers/followers. I thank you all and hope you continue to read these.
Of course I’ll add todays pic!
