This morning Sage was really bitey...so it begins. She loves being out in the snow and not sure how she does it, but seems to find leaves buried under 14 inches....She also decided to terrorize one of the kittys, who was less than impressed. So I stepped in. Sage also doesn't think it's fair that Emma and Maddy get to be on the couch and she doesn't. And while I'm not opposed to a dog on the couch, we aren't encouraging it either. She is finally napping so time to get ourselves ready for the day.

Last night she knocked over a small garbage can we use for recycling paper, it was empty, and she climbed on top of it...it was wiggling all over the place and it didn't phase her. I'm thinking this girl isn't going to have to much trouble with anything.

Oh and DH commented this morning, that he had forgotten how much work they are...lol

Day two...one poop, two pees all outside...whoopie....It will be a while though before she gets it...this is all due to our diligence in getting her out....

I am not working on anything but crate and potty training right now and catching the type of behaviors I like and giving her praise for them. 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!

Fromms is an excellent food IMO..but the best food is the one your dogs does the best on. I feed Fromm to my Cocker and would really like to keep them on the same food, but if Sage doesn't do well on it, then I will put her back on Eukenuba for a while and possibly change them both to something else. There are tons of good foods out there, but not every dog does well on every food.

I don't mind snacking per-say...but with feeding two dogs it makes it easier to give them what they should have and need if they eat it all at a meal. We feed Emma 2x per day and Sage was fed 2x per day, but that's just how often the pups bowl was filled. It's easier to control weight, amount etc if they aren't free fed.

I'm not holding my breath yet that Sage will sleep through the night tonight. She was more active yesterday, but it was all new. Today she plays, eats, poops, pees, plays some more than naps and then repeats...all in all she is up about 45 minutes and down abt 45 minutes...lol! We shall see...we are planning on running out for some errands and will take her with. She needs a collar that fits, hers is to big and I'm afraid she will slip out of it. We are expecting snow tomorrow and want to be able to take her out front while we shovel....wouldn't work if she got out of her collar...

I weighed her this morning...not sure if I posted that anywhere, she was 8.8 pounds, tomorrow is her vet apt..so I'll see what their scale says

Wow, I'm impressed she let you sleep through the night- we weren't so lucky. I attribute it to flying such a great distance with him and also his breeder's daughter spent most of her free time with the puppies, so he was missing her! We finally got things settled thank goodness!

I had a week and a half before bitey bitey started! OUCH!! Those puppy teeth are SHARP!!!

I'm not ready to say that Sage won't give us a rough go at night yet...But I won't complain if she doesn't.
