Science Sunday: Dogs


Sooooo……….  I’ll warn you right now, this post is not for the squeamish, or easily grossed out.  But, here are the uncensored things the kids have observed about Mac this week.
where he goes


That hole in his back is where he goes poop.  When his poop comes out it is soft.  But, if you leave it for a while it gets hard and black like a rock.

This is where Mac goes potty.  He goes potty a lot.  He is a boy, at which point the boys were all set to go on about that, but I’ll spare you that particular detail.





He chews on stuff a lot, and we need to keep our shoes in a box so he won’t chew on them.  He likes to chew on our toys.

He likes to bite.





He doesn’t know how to walk on a leash yet, and we have a lot of lessons to teach both puppy and kids.  He also doesn’t know how to come or sit.

He sleeps a lot.  He needs to nap a lot.  Why does he sleep so much Mommy?

So, any of you have something you learned from a new life experience?  Wow does that sound technical.

  4. Oh the things kids won't learn right away with a new puppy!

  5. I have a feeling they will be learning things every day with a new puppy in the house!

    My daughter would be so jealous if she saw this post! She's been asking me to get her a dog.

    Hey! I completely forgot to leave a comment on my first time linking up. I found your blog through the blog Tots and Me ( and love the idea of posting science related activities. You have the cutest little puppy, and a neat little family. Thanks for hosting!

  11. […] And then I was considerably amused to read their thoughts from when we first got a dog. […]
