This is Vella at 11 weeks. She's already learned "sit", "down", shes working on "stay" and she whines to go out. She is also working on the tunnel (we bought a starter agility kit) and loves the little jump. She learned how to get up the stairs this week...I suppose eventually she'll learn to come back down. I'd love to say shes crate trained, and it might be that while she's in the car she is (if I have to go somewhere I put the crate in the car and that's where she waits) ..but at home she's not. We tried putting her in the crate last night for bed...I've never heard a more pathetic dog...it was truly sad and brought tears to my eyes...mostly because I was laughing so hard at her attempt at howling. Like I said: pathetic. After 15 minutes I couldn't take it anymore and put her on our bed and she settled right down and went to sleep...and slept all night. Thankfully she's going to be fairly small, I couldn't imagine having something the size of a Great Dane or Irish Wolfhound sleeping on my bed, I'd be warm sure, but I think the lack of breathing when they laid on top of me might do me in eventually.
And now I'm off to attempt pie making with the children. wish me luck. Happy Thanksgiving to those of you who celebrate :-)
