Thought I’d give an update on our more recently acquired puppy Bella (sox). Here she is prior to 8 weeks, her ‘for sale’ photo –
Here she is, June 5th, at 8 weeks when we brought her home – hee hee – smaller than the cat-
Last week, I had her at the vet – she weighed almost 20 lbs. Gained 10 lbs in one month…. Uggh, which one of us wanted a big doggy?
Aren’t those ears a hoot? They started to do this –
and quickly progressed to this-
Like that barrier wall I put up behind her? I used my old plaster mdf sample boards!
More sample boards, and barrier gates…. originally it was only the baby gate, until she figure out how to scale it – I caught her that morning staring down at me from the upstairs hallway….
Actually the potty training is going fabulous. She hasn’t had that many accidents in the house – none in last couple weeks – but we only feed her twice a day, let her out frequently, and keep her contained to the kitchen tile area. This last week she has progressed to vocalizing at the door that she needs to go out – that is a great big step for dogkind…
Now gotta figure out how to keep our grass green –
She is digging her toys – starting to fetch more, but not so great at giving up the toy –
Beating up the cheap toys (Nick calls this one “Mike Tyson”) –
this one used to have a body-
squeaker chewed –
Her paws are gigantic-
What you saying about my paws?
Last night I fully expanded her crate – no more separator wall. I’m pretty sure at this point that this crate WONT fit her when she’s full grown-
Typical day – cat up high where puppy can’t reach –
ARE WE HAVING FUN YET?
