Lady and Tucker's litter 10/23/10
I cannot believe it has been almost two years since Ms Chanel came to me! You would not believe how beautiful she is! And big! Oh my, she looks just like her daddy! LOL I LOVE IT! I just wanted to tell you how happy I am with her, still, and thank you for breeding such quality pups!
She has the most gentle nature of any dog I
have ever known. My grandchildren are 8 & 6 now, and the way she loves and nurtures them, you would think she thinks they
are her own. So very sweet to watch her with them! There is not one thing I would change about this girl, except to clone
Hi, Karri! Just wanted to let you know how River is doing. She is now, at 10 weeks, a whopping 11.24 pounds, though I believe her growth spurt is beginning to taper off, since she has shown little interest in food these last two days. For a while, she ate everything we put in front of her and wanted more! She is still all sinew, hair, and bone...she has gotten so tall!
We shaved her face for the first time yesterday. That was an experience, though not as bad as it could have been. Barry helped me, and he is very good at restraining. She is all personality...strong willed, stubborn, physically active and daring, and yet so loving and sweet. We are having a great time getting to know her after so long with an older dog who had a very different personality. She vocalizes constantly...groans to herself in her sleep, grumbles when she plays with her toys, barks at me when I laugh at her, and yodels when she yawns. She is becoming more and more confident as we are out and about...we walk daily. She is more confident with new people, but has become quite shy of other dogs. I think that is because so many big dogs bark at her as we walk through our neighborhood, and she has come to believe all other dogs want to hurt her. We begin puppy classes this Wednesday, though, so she will have some fun playmates and will maybe regain some confidence. She is super, super smart! Already, using food rewards, she can sit, down, and stand. She has figured out her busy-buddy food activity toy, and is almost house trained. She is sleeping through the night most nights.
Thanks for a great dog! We will keep you updated, and hope to have some pics at puppy class!
