Default Intruducing Truffles and question on vacinations

Hi All,

As promised here are some pictures of our lazy Shar-Pei pup "Truffles":












He is such a good boy and we are so happy to have him.

Already he asks to go outside for toilets and during the night always uses his pads. He did use to whine for 30 mins when we go to bed but hasn't done so for last few days and is as good as gold when we go out for a while.

We have already learnt "sit" and are working on "Paw" but not too keen on using a lead but getting better.

As you can see his favorite thing is sleeping! He gets up in the morning, runs around for about an hour and then could quite easily sleep until evening before doing some more running around just before bed time!

I do have 1 question, me and my OH are going to visit my parents this weekend. They live around 2 - 3 hours away depending on traffic and of course we want to take Truffles with us.

Truffles had his first injection this Friday just gone and will have his 2nd Friday after next.

However when we are driving to my parents will we be ok to get out of the car and put him down briefly to do his business?

Any help would be greatly apreciated, Ta!

He is a Beauty ,you must have got him from a very good breeder,I would hesitate putting him on the ground untill his shots are complete.You really don't want to take a chance even if it's a small chance I love that puppy

Truffles is adorable - what a sweety - congratulations. To be safe I would put his pads or newspaper on the ground for him to do his business on. Vaccinations can take up to two weeks to kick in. Also I know there has been a lot of Parvo about here in the UK lately.

Hi Stevieb, what lovely pictures of your pup. You must be so delighted at having such a good boy.
Don't know what to say about letting him out to do his business on the car ride as I am not knowledgable about the likelihood of getting parvo in the UK. I would ask the vet since you are going to see them anyway when Tuffles gets his jab.

AAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW ADORABLE TRUFFLES IS!!! that is just soooo cute - his name is sooo fitting!!!! awww!!

I'd say putting him on the ground is fine, so long as he isnt near other dog's poos/wees, coz thats where they catch stuff from.

Thanks for your kind words.

Yep we are so happy he is well behaved, it does make training and playing easier

He does occasionally want to play fight by biting you but a quick reminder and offering another toy changes his mind.

As i said before he does enjoy allot of sleep and when we do take him out in the car he does just tend to lay down and sleep the journey away. I cant believe how well behaved he is!

Before we leave we will give him a good play session to wear him out and make sure he does his business before we go. That way he may sleep the whole way!

I think when we go to my parents we will take his puppy pads and should he actually wake up during the journey we will stop and see if he wants to go.

In the worst case scenario and he does have an accident we have him in one of those all weather dog seat hammocks so a quick wipe up should be ok.

Any way we are looking forward to Truffles meeting my family and their Yorkshire Terriers. One of them is only a couple years old and still plays like a puppy so lots of fun to be had i hope! I will try to take pictures.
