I was hoping you would get the blk tri!!!! OMGosh is darling, just darling...oooooooooo. Congrats, my Sierra was a blk tri as you know by now. Your puppy is gorgeous. I have a big soft spot for blk tri pups, hmmm guess you can't tell. You are going to have so much fun. So far what is her temperament like? Is she responsive like you wanted? Sweet, active, medium, what? *grin* Very happy for you. I'm looking forward to your sharing many, many pictures of her. AND I hope you share some stories too. It is a big quest finding the right breed isn't it? Fun though. I'm happy with my choice and I hope you will be just as happy with yours.
Hi Lori! Thank you!! So far she has been super good. I have been kind of blown away with how she sticks to me like glue - in a good way - she seems to just want to follow me with a really bright, happy attitude. She really enjoys playing tug which is awesome. I've learned so much from Lucy in terms of little things to do when they are babies to help build that too. She seems to have a really good amount of energy so far too. When she is up she is happy to play and run around but then she tires out she has been able to settle pretty well. I was hoping she would have an off switch.
And she is just a super love bug. Super sweet.
It's funny though - she would much prefer to sit outside vs inside when she is lounging and she gets warm easily (with all that fluff insulation! LOL) so we turned the heat down a little. It was a gorgeous day and we were also able to hung out in the back yard quite a bit.
I have this rolled vinyl that I laid out in our family room and put an X-pen on. She has a bed in there and that is where her water bowl is and I feed her there. I've been keeping the door open when she is not eating and she goes in and out; She learned super quickly that was where her water is and she has gone in there to crash on that vinyl several times. She likes that cool flooring. So different from my experience with Dobes! I have always had to lay out a blankie or bed on hard surface for my dobes to lay on!
Her potty training is also going super well. The breeder used the word "duty" which I have to transition to "potty", but every time she wakes up or plays a lot, etc, we walk over to the grass and I just say "let's go duty" on the way over and she rips over there and pees. So cute. And such a good girl. No accidents so far...
I'm sure she's going to have her wild and crazy moments though and I will have some stories to tell in no time at all!!
