My favourite thing this week is the newest member of the family. Coco the black schnoodle or as Leanne likes to call her Coco Channel, though I don't think she quite lives up to that name yet. Maybe next week after she has been to the parlor for her first clip and beauty treatment. She kind of reminds me a bit of a woolley bear at the moment.
These pictures were taken a couple of weeks ago.
She has been weighed this week and she has put on 2kg since her vaccination at 11 weeks. I am hoping that she slows the growing down a bit because she is at the size I expected her to be now but I think there will be a bit more growing to go. My husband is concerned that she won't be able to be carried around, which is what Squid likes to do, I think it will probably be a good thing if Squid can't carry her around because I was beginning to wonder if she could walk at times.
She has had one puppy class which left her exhausted the next day. Yesterday I took her for her first official walk and she slept for most of the afternoon, I am ashamed to say we didn't even make it round the reserve at the front of our house so she isn't a high energy dog which at least means she hasn't got up to too much naughtiness when we are at work and she is in the laundry. She now stay's outside during the day and I think she is quite enjoying that, but having a dog that doesn't chase birds is a bit strange (I have had foxies previously and they chase anything that moves). The pigeons are have a lovely time stealing her dry food as she watches them from the step.
Toilet training hasn't been too bad and we haven't found too many nasty surprises in unlikely places (and the one that we did find my hubby had to find it of course... who has the dog under sufferance). He did concede today that she is a friendly little thing.
Head on over to Mrs P for some more four legged FTF.
