The Dog Park
Here's a picture of Polo enjoying the car ride on the way to the park.
Here's a link to the Ronald Reagan Park website.

He loves to go for rides in the car now. If you go into the garage, he will run in after you and put his feet up on the runner and look back at you. He does really good getting in and out also and is not at all scared anymore.
Tomorrow we start an 8-week beginner puppy training class. I'm very excited for him to go and learn new things, and also for me to learn new things and be a good daddy.
Here's a picture of Polo doing his schnauzer pose on the back of the couch. Cute!

He met his "cousin" Monster last week. I don't think Monster was ready for a playful 4 month old puppy and I don't think Polo understood that Monster is an "old man" at 10 years old and was not in the mood for playing!
Here's a picture of Polo in his bathrobe. I had just given him a bath and put him in his robe. He kept trying to grab the hood, but he didn't mind it too much!

We also got him a little Ralph Lauren Polo shirt, which he wore on Christmas. They are available at http://www.polo.com in the “For the Pup” section. He looks absolutely adorable in it. He doesn’t seem to mind wearing it at all. I know some dogs (*cough*Miss B*cough*) just hate wearing any kind of clothing item.
Polo is getting to be a big boy. I guess he’s going through a growth spurt. He’ll be four months old next week. We’ve been giving him a little more freedom in the past week. He’s only had one accident in the house in the past three weeks, and that was two weeks ago. Yesterday, he was upstairs with me, playing with his new toy while I was working on the computer. Suddenly, I noticed that he was gone. I got up and looked around, and he was downstairs patiently sitting on the rug in front of the door. I went down and let him out to go potty. He is such a good boy!

Polo's First Grooming
His potty training is going very well. He hasn't had an accident in about a week.
In all of the pictures, he has blue eyes... I guess for dogs that is like "red eye." It gives him a wierd look.

Cindy came over on Thursday and Polo loved her, of course. I think she wanted to trade him for her miniature dachshund, Miss B. Hell to the no!
We spent some time yesterday cleaning up the yard… it was becoming like a mine field! We noticed a couple of “mines” that were clearly not left by our puppy. Yuck!

He had an appointment at the vet last Friday and he checked out okay. He was very good with the people and the other dogs there. He did cry a little when the doctor wanted to get in his face and look at his ears. But then, she had just violated him with a thermometer, so he was probably a little nervous! Everyone at the office thought he was adorable.
This past Saturday when I woke up, Doug and Polo were coming inside from going potty. Polo saw me at the top of the stairs and just ran right up them without stopping! He used to be scared to death of the stairs. We were so proud of him! He is still a little scared going down them, though, but I’m sure he’ll be over that soon.
