Awesome to hear back from you! Wow, I cannot believe she is of such a good size! When I was first inquiring about Ace, Laura did tell me that he was a particularly small puppy and would probably stay small. She was totally right. :D I hope that when he reaches 2 years of age that he's at least 10 kg, but if he stays this tiny his whole life then so be it. :)
It's nice that Lulu is a social little girl. Ace on the other hand is still very people-shy. In general I would say he is a fairly strange little guy. So many things about him are just so different from "usual" dog behavior. I find out new likes and dislikes of his every day. :D
Hey Ping and Lulu! Ace says hello and a belated birthday to his big sis. :) How are you all doing?
Ace ended up staying at a very shrimpy weight of 9.9 kg. Is Lulu a little bigger? If I were planning on showing him then I would have been a little disappointed, but he had to be neutered at 1 year anyway thanks to a certain something that refused to drop!
Oh well, I am glad she did come from a good place though. That is one huge relief.
She is getting better, barking less, and isn't going completely nuts when she see anyone she doesn't know and just growls a little. So from when I first got her things are getting a lot better.
Lulu really is a pretty puppy too and reminds me a lot of Chezza in the color. Chezza's parents are Pynewoodes Touch of Frost and Upnorth Must be a Shortcut. It would be really interesting if they were related. : D
Glad to see Lulu home. I see that you went and picked her up from the breeders home? I must ask, how was the environment? Was it clean, well kept, and did she have a lot of other dogs? How would you describe the whole experience?
Since I didn't get the chance to go get Chezza myself, I was worried I got her from the wrong environment. As time has gone on I have had quite a few behavior issues, most coming from a un-socialized dog. Barking, fear in meeting new people, dogs, aggression. I have taken countless dog training classes and try and socialize her as much as I can. Everyone I have talked to that has gotten a puppy from her seems to be so happy. I am just wondering if I was just a unlucky one.
Hey Ping and Lulu! I recently received a picture of my little boy (who has to wait out the 30 days of his rabies vaccine to take :() sitting next to Lulu! I fixed it up a little in Photoshop so the colors would be a little more vibrant, here you go! - http://i.imgur.com/zunak.jpg
Ahh, very nice to meet you. You puppy is so cute too, I like the pirate patch over the eye. It also looks like she don't have any tan points. I was really wishes Chezza would turn out that way but her coloring is still very nice.
Its nice to meet another person who has gotten a puppy from the same breeder.
Thanks! Your Lulu is ravishing! Until last night I didn't realize corgis came in blue merle.
As for the housebreaking, Cocosette is taking very well to it. She has peed about a half dozen times, about half of those due to my failure to take her out quickly enough, and hasn't pooped inside at all. After the first night she hasn't soiled her crate either. My house has wall to wall carpeting. Fortunately, I own a good shampooer.
Funny enough, Cocosette is learning to manipulate me with her pottying. On a couple of our hotter days, when she'd rather be in the air conditioning and it took some convincing to get her to go outside, we've gone out to the lawn and she's faked me out with perfunctory squats only to return inside and promptly pee on the carpeting. Either she's a clever girl or I'm an idiot, lol.
