Loc: The Great State
UPDATE: 3.5 months old
1. She isn't a big dummy! House training wasn't going so great - although she crate trained in one weekend. Sleeping all night for a while now. A couple weeks ago I noticed she squatted and... nada. Turns out she had a UTI. She now lets us know when she needs out.
2. Gonna be a lot bigger than I thought. Looking a pics of mom I figured she'd be about Brittany sized, maybe a bit lankier. Then I met mom when I picked her up, more like chocolate lab sized. At the vet she weighed 23# already. I also went back and looked at a pic of the litter that the breeder posted. She was the largest pup.
3. Training going well. Got her woah'ing on retrieves and waiting until the release. Follows my hand, too, even on things I didn't throw. Loving water, swims on her own a lot. Working on sit and implied woah now. In another month or so gonna move on to more difficult retrieving.
4. Her evil step mom (Dixie) is getting less and less likely to kill her. This little turd bullies her mentor sometimes, but all in all they're getting along.
Dixie is an old jealous bitch. She couldn't care less about that bear or any other toy... until the little one gets it. And Rosie knows how to bait her, even doing the ol' bait and switch at times.
