Puppy Breath

Ahhh! Sweet puppy breath !! That is at least one thing I was looking forward to when we decided to get a new Rottie puppy. I am among those who love the smell of puppy breath, and relish every moment of it until, at last they reach the ripe old age of a couple months and that sweet smell goes away and is replaced by something much more foul and horrific.

So we bring him home, name him Samson, and I just want to huggle with him, hold him on my lap and smell his sweet little breath while he gives me puppy kisses. But will he cooperate, NO ! He is the most independent little puppy we have ever owned. He hates to sit on my lap. He always wants down. When he does sit on my lap all he want to do is bit whatever is closest to his mouth, and I do mean BITE. He does not just nibble, he causes pain and breaks skin (He is still only 6 weeks old). He will give the most brief of kisses, but then wants to quickly move to the ear and start nibbling on that.

Nevertheless, he is a cute little thing and I think he is going to grow up to be one of the most beautiful Rotties we have ever owned.
