Lucy @ 39 weeks...

Halloween!!! Rachel was a "Man in Black", and Lucy was her little Alien! It rained like stink, and though Lucy went to a couple houses walking with Rach, she happily watched the rest of Halloween go by from the inside of my coat! Wow did she get cold and WET!

Not bad in the house training department this week. Only two days with poops in the house and no pees in the house during the entire week. We haven't been doing too much with obedience or leash training since things have been so busy, buy more and more Lucy is becoming the dog we want her to be.

Lucy at 40 Weeks...

Still not much of a morning dog! Her favorite time to perk up is unfortunately Rachels bedtime! Around 9:00 pm she just tears around the house and tries to get you to play fetch with almost anything! Lucy has been a good puppy in the way of chewing things, picking up the odd thing, but never damaging it, aside from PENCILS, now THOSE are fair game! Thankfully we always keep a pretty good eye on her, so she has never really gotten much in the way of lead or splinters.

BAD housetraining week :( 5 days with an indoor poop (one was not at home rather the vet clinic I work at!! GRRRR) and one pee in the house...

My Gramma is unfortunately in hospital on deathbed... It's been very rough for us around here and Lucy is certainly steppig up to the task of being very cuddly and close to us. I have even been taking her into the hospital in my coat and noone seems to notice or care. She makes me feel so much better and stroking her during extra rough times sure helps. I guess that's one of the bonuses of a very little dog.

I'm SO bummed that her eyes are really leaking now. Maybe I'll try to more directly deal with it in a little while, but for now I can't do too much about it. We'll still love her no matter what I guess.

Coat change is upon us it seems. She knots and mats expecially under the armpits and on the insides of her legs. Of course these are the areas that she hates me brushing :( Thinking of cutting lots of length under there, but might try to stick it out. I have bought some new clippers for doing face and feet and hope to start trying to do some desensitization training asap so I can get back to being her full time groomer.

Are you kidding me?... We really have to get up now?


I'm too tired for this crap...


Forget it, I'll just go back to bed...


Watching the world go by from her perch on the couch...


The last day of her 40th week was Rememberance Day. Here in BC Canada, this is a statutory holiday. I was shocked and dismayed after all this time to find out that Americans don't take it off? To me it's one of the most important things in the world to remember our past, and honor the people who made sacrifices for us and our country. Thankfully my daughter already understands this completely... We took Lucy with us to the local ceremony, even Lucy wore her poppy with pride.

Rachel taking her own moment of quite and reflection...

Lucy is 41 weeks now!

My husband has a friend in construction. One of his scope type tools got all wet so they were trying to dry it in front of the fire. Lucy thought that was a perfect place to chew her chew!




And today was bath day, POOF!








And here she is doing what poodles do best comforting a dear soul in the hospital...

Love the post-bath photos! Her hair is lovely in color; is it as silky as it looks, or is it more cottony? So poodle-y of her to take over that equipment box. They do possess all within their domain, y'know.

Nope, not "silky", definitely poodle-y, even though it's puppy coat. It's more like cotton, a little coarse and rough when you pet her. That's what I find kinda weird, I prefer petting a smooth, silky or extremely soft dog, but here I am wishing for a poodle with a thick coarse coat so it will be more recognizable, easy to style, and a little more dirt repellant. When I pet my golden retriever I find myself trying to memorize his feel, there's nothing better than burying your face in his oh so soft coat or sliding your hand over his short smooth face. Oh well, a trade off, at least I won't have to deal with the times he blows his coat and there's nothing but dog hair in the house!

Lucy is 42 weeks now! I am happy to report that she had only one poop and one pee in the house over the ENTIRE week. And this time, without a doubt in my mind, I can say that neither accident was her fault.

For the poop she was being finicky during the day and wouldn't eat her supper, well just before bed she decided to eat the whole meal at once, so no surprise that during the night she needed to poop. She may have asked, but my daughter is dead to the world when she sleeps so poor Lucy wouldn't have had a chance...

The pee, Lucy DID ask me to go out, I just misread her intention. I thought she was bugging me to play and I was absorbed on the computer. I shood her away and then it hit me! I raced out to the kitchen area that goes to the backyard door and sure enough, a little puddle. OOPS!

The super exciting thing is that 3 times this last week she was VERY direct and sure in ASKING to go out, scratching on the door then looking for us and going back to the door. GOOD GIRL LUCY!!

Here is a picture highlighting a different topknot we tried this week


And this picture (at least on my screen) acurately shows the tone and depth of her colour...


This picture is simply a cute pose, too bad the colour is washed out and the image isn't in perfect focus :(

Lucy is lovely! My little girl went light and is now darkening a bit! I envy Lucy's coat my pup had afortnight in the kennels. And was such mess when she came back she had to be shaved, hoping it will grow back fairly quickly! Hope it. Comes. Nice and thick she also had a cottony coat. Congrats on the potty training!

Your potty training woos sound so familiar to me! I have a toy poodle also. I remember when we got her at 8 weeks how impressed we were very quick with how long she held her pee and seemed to know it was bad. I never did any sort of pee pad (I thought it seemed counter productive) I did use the crate and very young she would hold it as long as she was in there. Like you I would have a good week and think we were there, then Bam! A poop in the floor, lol. Jazzy took way longer with poop than pee. I will tell you it wasn't until after her first birthday that she was what I would call fully house trained. We had a few random accidents over the next year that were probably me forgetting to let her out.

The good news is now at 3, I can barely remember all the work and she is SO dependable now, never an accident. She just gets better and smarter all of the time.

OH I did the bell for a while and that REALLY helped get her over the hump! You should try it. It takes a while before they know how to fully signal to you when they need to go, you may be missing her signals( I was)
