Daisy Mae was born 8/29/17. We are in Chula Vista (south of San Diego). Anyone with fur babies of similar ages?
Daisy is settling well! She is making it through the night without waking to potty, and out ever 30 minutes to an hour. The girl loves to drink water. I have her sitting, waiting, giving paw, almost laying reliably. Working on walking on the leash. We had a harness but the trainer suggested a martingale, and she is doing a little better. We are supposed to have her (trainer) come to the house tomorrow for the first time to meet us. She is definitely a people. LOLHi Seren was born on September 14th 2017. She has been home for 2 weeks now. She shares the same mum and dad as our 2 year old golden Albie. They seem to be bonding really well thank goodness.
How is Daisy Mae settling in? Love her name. X
Seren is settling in well. Sleeps through night too, has sit and lay down and quickly learnt to sit and wait by her place mat for meals. Has had couple of accidents in the house over first few weeks but now she is able to hold it long enough to get outside and we are getting better at reading ghe signals and anticipating when she needs to go, so she is doing much betterDaisy is settling well!

We got her 3 weeks ago today. First picture was the day my son and and I drove to pick her up near Riverside, CA. The second was day 2 at the house. The Third was was last week. The last is Daisy and my Chi Mimi (Daisy is growing on Mimi). My son is trying to take a picture a day... He is the main caretaker. He is 18, and has ADHD and mild Aspergers, so she is really keeping him focused. He says it's a lot of work caring for a pup.
Seren is a cutie!! How is she settling in?
I am a special education teacher. My master's degree is with an emphasis on autism spectrum disorders and applied behavior analysis. I currently teach students with emotional disturbances... much different the the children with autism, but they are already begging me to bring Daisy in! One day!! My plans are to take her to the nearby rehabilitation/retirement home and to the Veteran's home nearby.Hi Neciebugs I was just saying that I don't know any puppy owner who hasn't wondered if they did the right thing getting their pup.Thought never lasts though. Its incredible that Albie is already 2. It flew by and as you say by 12 months the hectic puppy days are distant memories and you have an amazing dog by your side.
It sounds like you are very lucky both with your Daisy Mae and your trainer. We have a great day care for Albie and she helped us with training. She has a large piece of land with woodland stream fields with agility equipment etc and her home has a great garden and set up. He has a ball the 4 days I work each week. Seren will gradually join him once she has finished her injections. It is great knowing they are happy and safe while we are all working, worth every penny.
Albie has done the therapy dog training, we were going to do the assessment but then decided to wait till Spring as the dates coincided with Seren's arrival and we felt we should let him concentrate on adjusting to having a sibling pup, also felt I would have less time to commit to therapy visits. I teach at a school for children with Autism and learning difficulties so we hope to take him there and to the local hospice too. We visit a few of my kids at home already and he is very chilled and calm around the kids and their families.
