Hello everyone. I just wanted to introduce myself and my pretty little girl Nutmeg. She's 12 weeks old and we got her as a companion to our 5 year old Shih Tzu, Molly.
My husband, daughter (10) and I are having tons of fun spoiling her and have been very busy chasing after her to make sure she is staying out of trouble.
I am already experiencing some things with 'Meg' that I dont remember going through when Molly was a puppy. She has already developed a tendency to 'guard' her food and treats. I am making sure to be around her a lot while she's eating, throwing yummy things in her bowl and to pet her when she has a chew treat or toy, swapping it for something a little better and then giving the treat back to her. I hope I am going about that correctly.
edit: I apologize for posting this in the general discussion thread. I just saw the introduction thread and should have posted there
I look forward to getting to know all of you seasoned Cav owners and getting some much needed advise.
