Here are the week 16 pics!
She started her puppy class. What a cluster that was. She was interested in seeing and playing with every dog. She conked out in the car on the way home. It probably blew her mind seeing so many dogs up close at once. There were so many beautiful and cute puppies there my heart was melting.
She had her 16 week vet visit. She weighed 5.5 lb. so she gained 1.5 lb in 4 weeks. Yay! She does good at the vets. Doesn’t even flinch or notice when she gets her shots. Now she’s done with her puppy vaccines. Fingers crossed no vet visits will be needed for another year until her annual.
This dog is bomb proof and fearless. This week she was definitely testing me and for the first time I felt very frustrated. At the same time, she is extremely sweet and loves everyone. She’s happiest when she can be curled up on the couch with me. When she frustrates me I try to remember the things she does well and that she’s just a puppy still. She’s begun to get more time to roam around the main level, which isn’t too big an area. Working on impulse control is a big focus right now.
She experienced snow for the first time. At first she wasn’t too excited about it. But then she stuck her head down in it and ran forward, almost using her head like a shovel through the snow. She did it about 4 times. I laughed so hard. The pic below is some of her first steps in the snow. I was so bummed it snowed so soon this year. We are having record cold temps this month. I got a flexi leash for the very purpose of being able to let her run out on it, while I stand inside with shoes on, storm door just barely cracked open to allow the tape of the leash to go through. Then I don’t have to go in the cold unless I have to pick up a poop!
