Clyde, our new golden doodle.

Clyde 'before'

This is Clyde "after" he's been to a three hour beauty appointment
Clyde is our new golden doodle puppy, he's 3 1/2 months old.  We are in the process of housetraining and kennel training.  Our first night wasn't horrible and he's getting the hang of the kennel.  His first day with us was really excellent, I think because he was so 'pooped' from his long car ride and 3 hour beauty appointment.  The night went pretty well, he didn't get up until 3am to go out and then went back to sleep for a couple hours. 

Today we had several potty accidents in the house, but we went for two walks around the block and he's taken a couple of good naps.  Whoever said this was like having a new baby  absolutely right!  Wish us luck.

He is adorable especially after!
I love his name too. Seems to fit him. Like a baby, the first month is the worst. Have fun!

He is adorable!!!! We had such great luck potty training Kalee (she's now 8 mos)...I actually wrote down in a diary when she pee'd and pooped! I could never remember if it was an hour ago or 20 min. If she didn't go potty outside, back to the crate for 10 min. then back out. We also taught her to ring a bell to go outside! Keeping them in a confined area or on leash attached to your own body! works great! Roaming is dangerous and allows them to have accidents, which they don't like either. Best of luck...and they are like having a two year old!! Exhausting! But I wouldn't trade our little one for anything!!
