Back to Square One

Apparently hearing me say "Good puppy" lost its appeal for the pups. The last day or two has seen them ignoring the newspaper when they are out of the pen. Now don't get excited. Training ONE pup is very different from training nine... or any number more than two. And a couple of them ARE still going back to the pen for potty breaks. They really need to be in a larger pen but the bigger ones are in the dog room and are occupied by dogs. But I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to do some rearranging pretty quick.

Emy is in season and I've had to move Boon into my bedroom. Which doesn't sit well with Shadow who considers it HIS territory. Or with Popcorn, the NEUTERED 6 pound PomPoo rescue who is Shad's second in command. I did manage to get some sleep last night but have them separated right now so I can get some work done on the computer.

STILL not positive Diamond is pregnant. If she is, it is going to be a small litter. She has a slight pot belly but that's about it. Of course, she wouldn't be the first of my dogs to just "bloom" over night. Fingers crossed!

This splendid dog is Aylan and lives in The Netherlands. She is still a fairly young puppy... 9-10 months old... and is a wonderful example of the White Shepherd which is a totally separate breed from the GSD. I made the comment to her owner that I loved the way she self-stacks (stands four square) in a regular stance instead of the awful falling-down-in-the-rear stance of the GSD. I was told that the Whites are not allowed to be lower in the rear, standing or moving. Good for White breeders!
