Chewing problem!

Miso is in BIG TROUBLE right now. She's been chewing paper lately. Or anything she can get her mouth on. First, she chewed on the phone book. That wasn't so bad, aside from a bit of slobber and a piece of the first few pages chewed out. What she's in BIG TROUBLE for is getting into daddy's DVD collection, selecting his Venture Brothers. CD (his pride and joy among his DVDs, oft rewatched), and chewing up the cardboard cover. Needless to say, he is extremely angry now. The DVD… Continue

Smart a lesson with a cow hoof!

Miso is such a smarty girl! I've been trying to teach her a few tricks of late, and for a while, it seemed like she really wasn't connecting or learning anything. It was so frustrating, I was worried that she would never learn!

Well, yesterday I pulled out the only treats she eats fast enough to train with, and the clicker. She decided to show me just how smart she is! She showed me that my attempts at teaching her to shake were not in vain, shaking on command! She also knows how to… Continue

Good things, good things.

So, Miso gets her last set of shots next week! Well, it's not a set, it's just her Bordetella (Kennel Cough) vaccine! Then she'll be fine until we go get her fixed!

She's been doing really well lately. We let her run around even more, now that she's starting to grow up a bit and is taking lessons a bit more seriously (We're lucky that the couch she likes to pull stuffing out of came like that...still a comfy couch nonetheless!). She's doing great with her potty training, for the most… Continue

Bath Time

I swear, Miso is the EASIEST puppy to please. So I just used the pedi-paws on her. She HATES that. To make up for it...I gave her a bath. Now, to some dogs, this would just be salt in the wound, you know?

Not for Miso. Miso LOVES bath time. She jumps around, attacks the water, and all around goes crazy. I tend to get soaking wet when I do bathe her, but it's worth it for the hilarity, and to see the fun she has. She slips sometimes, but gets right back up and goes back to attacking… Continue

Pee. (TMI maybe?)

Miso was doing REALLY good at crate training, didn't have any problems ever...then, last night, she went potty in her kennel (right when I was about to go to bed). She got a bath, and her kennel got scrubbed down good with some stain and odor remover, same goes for her toys. When I go to take her out, right as I'm opening the door she piddles on the carpet (REMINDER TO SELF: Shampoo carpet!) I get woken up this morning to my husband telling me that she's peed in her kennel, AGAIN. So I clean it… Continue

Oh my goodness.

I love Miso. I really, really do. She's the sweetest little dog ever!

But sometimes, she gets on my last nerve! I can't WAIT until she grows up! She's still in the 'eat everything in sight' mindset...which really sucks, because we have mushrooms growing in the yard in front of our condo. I'm so scared she's going to eat them, I have to keep a super careful eye on her!

She also won't eat half of the time. The veterinarian tells me that she should be eating 2 1/2 cups of… Continue

Well, Miso has been home for a little under two weeks now! She's a great little puppy! Everyone loves her, and what's even better, she loves everyone (even the vet...for now! We'll see what she thinks of him after she goes in for her shots the week after next)! Potty training and crate training is going well, she hasn't had nearly as many accidents as I expected!

She's a very sweet little puppy. Spoiled rotten already, though! We have one heck of a time getting her to eat out of a… Continue

I just wanted to say thanks to all the folks who welcomed me here, I already know that this is a great site!

Miso Soup actually hasn't come home JUST yet. She'll be here on Saturday! I've waited a long time to get our girl (been waiting 2 years to get a dog!), so obviously I'm excited!

We had to wait to bring her home, as we just moved into a new apartment (with no pet deposit)! I have everything prepared for her. It's very nice, because we live in short distance from… Continue
