Most likely will try for sit in the next few days, but so far she is really good!!!!
She is eating well...almost 1/2 cup at dinner...she was fed in the morning and evening and the bowl was left down till empty so she really is a bit of a snacker and I let that slide tonight, but I did pick up the food and water abt 8pm...right now she is napping again...longest she has slept at one time all day. I'm going to wake her abt 9ish and try to keep her up till about 11....Then we all go to bed. Oh I spoke to soon...someone is fidgeting...lol....We will just let her and see what she does.
And yep that's me in the picture! I was tired and so was she, however I only let her snuggle for a bit before putting her in the crate...
As for food issues...I think Golden's seem to have their fare share of stomach issues! We plan on keeping Sage on Eukenuba LBP, which is what the breeder had her on for at least a month or two....then we will slowly start to change her over to Fromm fingers crossed she does well on it!
I am so glad to hear you had a relatively easy night with Sage! I cannot believe she slept through the night...I think you are going to have a lot of jealous people on here
Sounds like she's getting into her fair share of fun puppy trouble too
She sounds like a great girl thats keeping you entertained...can't ask for more than that!
I never heard about "snackers" before I came on this forum and it seems like there's a lot of puppies that don't eat the whole portion of food in their food bowl, and I especially never heard about taking it away to teach them to eat everything. My aunt's dog is a snacker, and she just leaves the food out throughout the day so he can finish it when he wants. Is the objective to teach them to eat the whole portion at once by taking it away? It's really good information in case I get a dog that only snacks.
Is Fromm's the best food?
Sorry so many questions...don't want to hijack your thread with my questions...just hoping to learn from you.
Anyways though, Sage is adorable and I love the pictures of her cuddling!! Thanks for posting the pics!
