Default Lucky's new sister Kit

It is a beautiful Sunday and the weather is super nice. We went out for a family stroll at the back end of our neighborhood. I recorded this video and we ran into another poodle mix who used to play with Lucky when he was a young puppy. https://youtu.be/jPv-xXUzuM4

Since cutting Lucky's hair he is always looking cold even though it is in the 60s here in Florida and 75 degrees inside.

LOVE Lucky's short haircut! And what a nice walking path you have! Those ducks would've fascinated my girl!

Default Lucky's new sister Kit

That is a good question, thank you for asking. I figured Kit would be like my last Maremma but she is very different. Kit is very VERY friendly, which was something I did not expect given how territorial and aloof my last Maremma had been. Kit is not shy at all and so far I've done everything I can to prevent any bad encounters since 8 weeks of age. She is exceedingly confident and curious. This dog is exceedingly outgoing. She loves to explore new things including vacuums, strange sounds, new people. Her favorite thing is jumping into the car and going on a ride because she knows it is adventure time. By contrast it took Lucky two months to willingly jump into the car and not look upset during the ride. She loves when a new person or a family walks in her direction. She loves to be petted and people love her in return. I take her to the farmers market on Saturdays and we get stopped every 5 min with people asking questions about her...particularly what breed she is because she doesn't have the Pyrenees double dew claws. I joked about making a sign for her to wear that says "Hi I am a Maremma Sheepdog". She gets super excited to meet people of all sizes big and small as long as they scratch her head and rub her belly. She flops right over and sticks her tough out. There are a few things about her that is very different from Lucky: 1. Her gait- she is very VERY uncoordinated. I had looked at LGDs (livestock guardian dog)development patterns and they are all late bloomers. They also are not as agile as poodles in general. They like to sit and watch and chill rather than run around and retrieve. 2. She is very vocal- Lucky is a never bark dog and this one barks all the time i.e. Need to potty, hungry, thirsty, or when she wants to play in general. 3. Lucky primarily enjoys other dogs but Kit REALLY loves people. My previous Maremma hated strangers but Kit actually loves the UPS amazon delivery man. Heh. The only issue we are working on is excitement peeing. She pees a little when she is over excited. I have no idea if I got super lucky with Kit or the fact that she is from a really amazing breeder. Both her parents had excellent personality, health, and were beautiful. The breeder is awesome and tested for elbow, hips, and even microchipped and registered her.

ETA: Kit does like to sass you sometimes when you tell her no but is obedient and especially if there is a tasty treat. Training Lucky and Kit was a very different experience. Kit learns fast but also forgets fast whereas Lucky is very observant and is almost learning your behavioral pattern.

So interesting! It's such a rare breed. Is the Maremma purpose more guardian of the flock rather than herding? She could charm any predators with that smile, maybe sheep too. A bark would be a must. With poodles it's often the snooze alarm action on your leg! I am so happy that she's a social butterfly/belly up/sit on Lucky puppy.

Kit is a beauty that's for sure. It's funny how different personalities can be even within the same breed, they have their own ways.

We took Lucky and Kit a dog park in St. Petersburg Florida. It is called Fort de Soto. A friend told me about it months ago and I looked it up and it was rated as one of the best dog park in the country. So I wanted to see what the fuss was all about especially before Lucky's neutering next week and now kit has all of her shots. This beach is pretty great given how clean it was and the fact it was an off leash dog beach. Usually beaches that allows dogs are very small and not well kept so this place definitely lived up to its reputation.

Lucky and Kit had so much fun today! All of the dogs there were actually much friendlier than my dog park. I highly recommend it to people who are in the area although look up the weather before you come because Florida's weather is very fickle and it rains all the time.

we had a loaner car from the dealership and it was a hatchback or what id call our clown car because it was a tiny hybrid that had two big dogs.

They say LGDs are very loyal but I think Kit wanted to leave with this family. So funny how different she is than Sahara. Lucky was quite well behaved and always by my side. He is my loyal furry buddy for life!
