Eleven Weeks With Riggs #GDApupRiggs

Riggs is 18 weeks old today!

He weighed a whopping 18.8kg this morning, gaining 1.3kg in the last week!
He’s now getting 180g Bob Martin’s dry puppy food three times a day, and he does a beautiful SIT-STAY-EAT when I put his food down, even when he’s drooling!

Riggs’s little front baby teeth are being replaced by grown up teeth. His canines will soon follow suit.

Thirsty puppies after puppy class 

 Puppy Club today was at Fourways Crossing with our Puppy Raising Supervisor, and Riggs, Ringo, Rocco, Ronnie, and Raffi all did very well on their walk. We crossed roads, climbed two different kinds of staircases, rode in the lift, walked past open shop doors, did some recall exercises, looked down through the open railings to the floor below, and had a coffee in the Wimpy afterwards. They were all proper tired when we drove home!

Last Friday night we took Riggs to the SA Guide-Dogs Golf Day prize-giving and dinner. He got to meet some golfers, and practise sleeping under my chair while I ate. He also got to experience some applause and meet a working Guide Dog. He was a star, as always!


Riggs loves his crate, napping and playing in it, and sometimes he’s happy to share it with one of his housemates!

And just ‘coz he’s so cute, here are a whole lot of pictures of our gorgeous Riggs for you to enjoy, some of which he’s with his “housemates” – our other dogs!
