    Default Chloe the Star Pup

    At 12 and a half weeks, Chloe canl:
    instantly sit to vocal and signed command
    Come when called (especially when the whistle is used)
    Stay in response to vocal/signed command (still building this up)
    Play nicely with Holly
    Tolerate being bathed
    Be left for relatively long periods of time (ie, max four hours) in her crate with minimal noise/disruption
    Be clean in the house AND in her crate 70% of the time.
    Amuse herself for limited periods of time.

    Maybe it's just me, but I think this is a great start! She's not a fussy eater, so since the girls share one meal a day, Holly is becoming less of a princess about her food (she ate it- just inspected it carefully first to check for poison (!)- and Chloe's fast response to the whistle (as well as the reward) is making Holly think coming to the whistle is a good thing. Holly was always scared of the whistle before- instead of coming, she ran and hid :

    Both pups are starting to play well together. If I'm holding Chloe Holly will bark and prance until I put her down, and then they chase around the kitchen. They had a spontaneous tug of war game today with no machinations from me. They'll even lie touching each other on my lap, but since Chloe still likes yanking Holly's tail. Holly is naturally suspicious about getting any closer. Fact is, they may never snuggle together- but all in all, even if things improve no further, they're happy enough.

    Downside: Chloe's fascination with mugs and their contents. She drank some of my coffee last week, and this morning tipped a (thankfully empty) cup over herself. Oh well. At least it'll make me better about tidying up!

    Amber- 3 years

    Chloe is coming along nicely. Holly may accept "little sister" in time, my own older sister didn't exactly adore me either at first. Sounds like Chloe is a curious one too, that will definitely keep you on your toes! Ahh puppies.
