It's great that he's been so easy to potty train so far, I bet that makes up for the paper ripping fascination!
You are right Camille, his ability to learn so quickly about potty training has been such a wonderful surprise for us, especially for a male. Over the past 26 years, hubby and I have opened our home to 12 other chi babies (3 of which are still with us) and we have never had one catch on with such consistency at such a young age. We have always found females to be easier and quicker to train than our boys, until little Mick. He is truly amazing.. smart as a whip. I am quite impressed with his comprehension of what we tell him, hubby says he is scary
If he didn't have selective hearing
about not tearing up all paper, he would be about perfect, lol
Two of our past chi babies lived to be over 16 years old. Most around 14 years. Sadly, we did have two with heart murmurs that we lost at 9 years old, and 10 years old. Our 10 year old (Bandy) was also diabetic and on insulin shots for years twice daily. We just lost him on March 30, 2016, so that feeling of loss is still painfully fresh. We said due to be in our 60s, that we wouldn't bring home any more babies.. but then we met Mick!
