Oh My! What a little bundle of energy!

We have had almost 5 full days with Morna. She is a delightfully intelligent, inquisitive little creature. ....and she has had us running for the full five days! She certainly lives up to the descriptions of corgis....really smart, lots of energy, curious. She and Bear have become friends and we have seen the two of them lying snuggled together sleeping. This happened once Morna stopped jumping up at Bear's belly, looking for food, I suspect.

The cats are still not speaking to anyone in the house, humans included. They are letting us know that while they tolerated one furry thing that isn't a cat, we did not consult them; they did not get a vote; and they are seriously thinking of giving up on us, packing their bags and leaving. They are definitely put-out with another fur kid not of the feline type. It took them a while to get used to Bear when she came on board....so I suppose they'll get used to Morna. It would probably be wise for them to be nicer to her because I suspect that Morna is going to large and in charge (well, maybe not LARGE, but definitely in charge) when all is said and done.

I have pix, but frankly Morna's early rising time has my internal clock out of whack and I don't feel like doing the work of downloading them from my camera's CD to the computer so I can post them. I'm sure I'll catch up on my sleep sometime within the next few months and will make sure that all the great pix of our busy little girl trying to herd cats, feed from Bear, and just generally making life really interesting around here!

Sounds like you got all your bases covered! We had to do the chicken wire too... Many moons ago when Kidder was a pup, we lived in upstate NY and had a spiral staircase in the living room. She was so small, she could fit between the railings posts, and the stair treads. She knew no fear and would turn on the stair treads and look at us from about 8 feet up! Needless to say, those openings got blocked rather quickly!

Continued success with all the training!

We are using a puppy pen in our office, a crate in the living room and the travel carrier in our bedroom at night. As we move from place to place so does she, for the most part. There have been no 4:30 wakeups since four days ago, and she is doing really well for the most part. We've been 3 days (not counting today) with no accidents. My husband installed chicken wire around the bottom half of our picket fence down to the ground, and so she's been able to run free in the yard instead of having to be on the leash. She was little enough to go through thoses spaces, and she tried while on leash a few times. Now that she can get more exercise and go at her own pace (we're still there to see what she does), things w/the housebreaking are doing really well.

Haha, I hear you about the internal clock being off. Optimus has been waking me up around 5:30 the last couple days. Considering he goes to bed around 10:30-11 (and sometimes sleeps about an hour before that), I've very proud of him being able to hold it that long. Glad to hear that Bear and Morna are getting along now.
