Sounds like Marvin is a cutie too, he has grown so quickly. Bella will be 9 weeks old on Saturday and had a few wees in the family room, our main room, but overall not too bad. We can't take her out walking yet, too young and needs to have her vaccinations before we can do it. Parvo is also in the area so we need to be careful where she goes. Puppy school starts on the 15th.... I am already teaching her to sit, stay and fetch.... xxx
