We adopted a Bernese Mountain puppy!! It was a multi-state rescue to adopt and we are over the moon in love. Meet Elliot! In a 24 hour window, my husband flew from Denver to Knoxville and back to Denver to bring Elliot to the mile-high city and to his fur-ever family!
Everyone breathed a HUGE sigh of relief when Elliot fit into the travel carrier!
My husband’s backup plan was a car rental and 20 + hour drive back to Colorado with an eight-week-old puppy! Whew!
As we navigate the potty training and crate training I wanted to share a homemade puppy treats recipe!

Before Elliot arrived at his fur-ever home, we rolled up the rugs on the main level in preparation for potty training boot camp. We decided it is easier to take the rugs out of the equation.
We are in day 4 of Elliot in his fur-ever home. I think he deserves homemade puppy chow treats for a job well done (outside).
I used this recipe and you can print a copy below!

Elliott’s adoption was a coordinated effort between the Chattahoochee Bernese Mountain Dog Club, Adopt a Golden- Atlanta and my sister who is a founder at Adopt a Golden- Knoxville. A huge thank you to Elliott’s foster mom who ended up with a litter of puppies when Elliott’s mom went into labor shortly after she was rescued from a hoarding situation.
It took multiple foster families to get Elliot to Colorado and we are fur-ever grateful!
