I have him pretty much paper trained now. Good thing Costco has big boxes of the absorbent pads used for puppy training! That's what I use with Timmy. He's learned to pee on one of those, then he gets a treat. Only occasionally does he miss the pad, or go somewhere not even close to the pad. He still poops where ever, but at least he's not peeing everywhere. There will be some new flooring this year, after he's back outside with his mom and brother, who are both doing well.
Having an older kid in the house is way messier than having a bottle baby. There is hay involved, which seems to be getting all over the house. I spend half of every day cleaning up after him. I do have one of those big wire dog cages set up in the bedroom where I feed him his hay and a little bit of grain. But the hay gets stuck on his hair and there are pieces of it everywhere. I will be glad when spring arrives and he's back to being outside! Although he is cute, and he doesn't chew on things like a puppy does. It's kinda like having a puppy in here. It's also kinda like living in a barn with him in here!
He is gaining weight and getting stronger. He's not jumping on things yet, but he can get up on his hind legs to check things out on tables and kitchen counters now.
The blue eye you see is just from the camera flash, he has normal goat eyes and can see quite well.
February has turned into the month of winter! We have 20 inches of snow and counting, it's snowing all day today. It's been cold, too. Single digits above and below 0. Luckily we are not getting all the wind that the valley is, just a gentle breeze, so we don't have a big wind chill to deal with, too.
Guess I'll go out and start digging out before it gets too deep. have a great weekend!
