Four months old

Page is now looking more like a young dog rather than a little puppy. She has a few more adult teeth and is starting to get a grown up coat. Here ears are slowly becoming more pricked. She is still very naughty and gets away with murder as she is so cute. She loves anything that makes a noise, espeically late at night. She has now learnt to tap, next I shall try left and rights. Page loves to learn, but this extends to the other dogs bad habits. I caught her trying to jump onto the dining room table the other week.

Polo seems to be genearally in much better health than she was at christmas. She comes on walks with us but spends most of the time with us rather than chasing her ball.

Parsley is now only being entered for jumping classes. We haven't trained together for months. It might be a good idea to give her a run on Monday night.

Panic is still keeping all the other dogs in line. She is a real tyrant. She is training well and is looking forward to the agility season. Everytime we go out the garden she is desparate to do the weaves.

Pilot spends most of her time glued to her favourite armchair. She loves her walks but does not see any point in using up any energy in the house or garden. The only exception being raiding the bins or pinching food off work surfaces.She is training a lot better now, and in training has a nice stay and weave.

Penn is still little Miss Sunshine. She is the favourite playmate of Page. They play so well together. Penn has her first show at Easter.

A visit from the tooth fairy.

Last night while playing with Page I noticed she has lost the first of her puppy teeth. An upper incissor. She is starting to grow up. She is chewing a lot more now, so her gums must be a bit sore. I'm keeping some nice soft things for her to chew at hand, these can be swapped for things I don't want her to chew.

She now has a little bit of adult fur on a tail and some more around her face.

Her favourite games are very noisy, she loves to make a lot of noise. She still loves empty plastic bottles. Empty plastic dogs bowls are also very noisy. She has learnt how to flip them on to their side and she then tries to roll them across the room.

I like these photos because you can really see her ears.I think they are so cute.

Next time I hope to give an update on all the other dogs.

Page, still naughty

Page is growing up to be a very happy little puppy. She is still very naughty. Last week I found her with my camera, luckily she hadn't stated to chew it. She also doesn't like me reading and will try and pull books out of my hands. She also still loves to throw water bowls around the house.

She loves to tease Pilot, one evening she decided to play with Pilots ears and turned them inside out. Pilot has very sensitive ears but she just sat there calmly letting Page get way with it.

She enjoys watching the other dogs train. Monday night she was so keen she tried pushing the riding school doors open to get in as fast as possible. While she was there we did some sit and down exercises. We also did a few stays, just the length of her lead. She was very good even with the distractions of the other dogs training.

Page's office

The space behind the chair in the corner of the lounge is called Page's office. It's here she hides all her favourite toys, from the other dogs. Found behind it is a collection of tuggies , ball, plastic  bottles and at the moment a celebrations container. We are not too sure how she managed to get that there. If anything goes missing, this is the place to look. I think this is a family trait as her auntie Jinx has a hidden toy stash too.

She also uses it to tease Pilot, who is to big to get behind. She runs out straight to Pilot and as Pilot starts to chase her runs back behind the chair. She than pokes her head out from alternate sides as Pilot runs  from side to side trying to catch her.

Earlier this week she tried to investigate our record collection. It appears she is a Pink Floyd fan. It was rescued just in time. Tom has also learnt not to leave his glasses on the edge of the table, luckily they were not damaged.

The good weather has given her more of a chance to spend some time playing out the garden with the other dogs, Like her walks this does not tire her out. Poor Penn, she keeps coming up on my lap for a cuddle to get a rest.

I'm still trying to get a good photo of  her on a walk, all I get is a blur or a patch of grass with a tail in the corner.

Page is enjoying her walks, she wants to go and say hello to everyone she meets, two or fourlegged. Walks don't tire her out, she arrives home full of energy. At least she sleeps through the night.

A new game for Page is called wrap myself in a throw over then slither through it to the floor. The first time she did it I went to rescue her, she then got back on the chair and did the same thing again. I don't think she will have any problems with collapsible tunnels.

Page's first walk

After having the last of her vaccinations Page was allowed out for her first walk today. She had a great time, especially chasing Pilot. She arrived home, not tired but with even more energy racing around the house.
She was not frightened by anything on her walk. This is a little worrying as she has no sense of danger so we have to watch her carefully. Luckily we have a nice safe dog walking area less than ten minutes walk from our house.

Page had a busy day yesterday.She to have her second vaccination, she was very brave and didn't notice it. She was microchipped as well and this time gave a little squeal, I don't blame her with the size of the needle. We then went training, Page came and watched the last session sitting on my lap. She was a little quiet but it was a busy evening for her and she met lots of new dogs.

I am now looking forward to taking her for her first walk. It will be exciting for both of us.
