    I have now fulfilled a long time dream of mine and have brought a Czechoslovakian Wolfdog pup into our lives.
    We named him Nevis, after one of my favourite places in Scotland.
    He's a cheeky so-and-so, but who could be mad at such an adorable baby? Storm is pretending to be all grumpy and snooty, but despite her noisily disciplining him, he clearly adores her and already after his first full day with us, she no longer sends him away when he snuggles up to her.

    He's still behind me isn't he?

    Early morning play, he's got no fear and goes right for her

    A wee update on the menace:
    He's certainly settled in. He's put on 1kg (probably even more now) in the first week and grows like weed. He's still a cheeky devil, who doesn't give Storm a moment's peace, apart from when he's sleeping. Nevis is super smart. He's learned "sit" within minutes and this morning I taught him "down", too. He's new thing is, that when his water bowl is nearly empty, he pushes it over and brings it in.

    thats a face you couldn't possibly be mad at! I wonder if potty training is difficult?

    He certainly knows when to put on his puppy face and make those little baby noises.
    Potty training is the same as with any pup. He's getting there with the pooping, letting us know when he needs. He still has the occasional pee in the house, but usually tries to do it on the hard floor (or on the dirty laundry in front of the washing machine lol).
    What's great about him is that he is confident enough to do both "businesses" when we're on a walk.

    What a difference a few weeks make. Nevis is growing like weed, all legs and ears.
    He's definitely a very "intense" dog, very smart, willful and picks up on everything.

    Sure has grown plenty in short time.
    Starting to show a glimpse into the handsome young man he promises to be when full grown.

    For @MassExodus : Some more puppy pics
    Looking at the first photos to now, it's hard to believe it's the same pup. Nevis is no longer a baby but a handsome young boy:
