We have exciting news! For a number of reasons, we are getting to have private training lessons in our home for six weeks beginning tomorrow! I am thrilled at the opportunity-I feel like Thelma Lou is going to do so well in our controlled environment. Also, the facility that we are using is building an agility training course (for FEMA-they mainly train rescue and forensic dogs) which she will have access to once it's finished and pretty much forever.
This works so well for our schedule-both boys can participate, perhaps even my husband since his work is less than a mile from our home. We won't have to worry about the Parvo risk (vet still doesn't want her in big classes because she's seen an even greater increase in parvo infections) and will continue socialization with some puppy friends we have. It's just an ideal situation. And one on one attention. So excited!
We will move to a group class after this six week period is done. She'll have a little maturity on her, she'll be completely vaccinated, and will have a head start on obedience.

I weighed Libby today at 4 months and one day old. She only weighed 30 pounds. Which is 5 more lbs than what she weighed at 3 months. That seems so low to me.... I cant feel her ribs that easily. I wonder if she will just be on the smaller size... She hasn't gotten much taller in the past couple weeks. What are your pups weighing in at?
We weighed Dug a couple of days ago at home, and at 13 weeks he's was a whopping 25.2 lbs. It feels like just yesterday he was traveling home with us for the first time, this small little ball of fur, and now, he's 25 lbs, when did that happen?!
Hi guys, we're still alive! Just super busy with work and wedding planning Charlie is doing AMAZINGLY. I think that's part of why I haven't been on here as much - really no issues to report! I can't remember the last time I cleaned up a potty mess in the house, which is great. Puppy class is going very well too. Charlie is almost always the "demo dog" because he learns the commands so quickly! Here's Charlie hanging out in the car:
And enjoying his first snow last week!
And playing with our friends' new puppy, Lola. Lola is an 8 week old American mastiff puppy; Charlie won't be bigger for long:
Glad to see all the October babies are doing so well!
