Kara is such a lover. She really isn't overly fond of her toys, and she has quite the variety. I am wondering if this will change as she gets older or if some dogs are just not interested in toys much. I really want to teach her to play fetch, it's something my kids would play with her quite often. My original breeders dogs would play fetch with the kiddos all day if they could and they all had so much fun. It tired out both the dogs and the kids! LOL. I wish there was something I could do to encourage her toy enjoyment.
Also, she is so people oriented, when I let her out of her crate in the morning or after I get groceries, I take her potty, then we come in and I expect her to want to run and play but she sits at my feet and wimpers until I pick her up, then she plays on my lap or curls up and falls asleep. I am happy to hold her as is my DH, but is this a bad thing to do too much? I've never had a dog that was such a lap lover. I worry that maybe if she is too obsessed with being held that maybe it will cause more separation anxiety when I have to go places without her. On the other hand, I love the fact that she is so cuddly. It makes me feel good that she would rather be with me than get down and play. AS long as it's not doing any harm to her like preventing any emotional growth.
Last thing, I would like to start taking her for a short walk, is this okay since she is only 10 weeks? We live on a quiet cul-de-sac. I was thinking about walking about 4 houses down then turn around to start with. I think she is getting the rest of her puppy shots on Friday.
All is well overall and we love her a ton!
