Day 5, how are we getting on? *Lots of pics *
...Very well As Sins predicted (she has a habit of saying something then it comes true), Poppy's season ended today. Dylan is not bothering her at all I have to say, managing a bitch in season and an entire dog was very hard work. Both dogs cried if I separated them. The belly band helped a lot, thanks for that tip Margaret. It's not enough on it's own mind you, I stayed with them 24/7. I even put Poppy under the covers in my bed with me while Dylan slept on top of the covers. With all those black hairs, I feel like I'm now sleeping in the dog bed!
I can't walk them together, try as I may, one pulls with all his might, one walks like an angel but together, they both pull. I really am grateful to the person who trained her to walk nicely on the lead, but she only knows one command, "sit". I am teaching her "dance". It's funny as Dylan joins in and both dogs turn a circle, Poppy being guided by a treat.
Dylan is worried when I give her a rawhide. The last dog who I minded, Dolly the Scottie, gave him a nip when he found her chew so he thinks Poppy will do the same. He hides under the table. After thinking I would never give her a chew again, I decided she can help him get over it by having her chew (she LOVES them) and not being nasty. The first time they both had one and he ran off, she carried one to him and dropped it by him and went back for hers. How adorable is that! She is a little pushy when he gets hugs but I don't let her barge her way in.
I am VERY happy she loves to cuddle me, she presses her face into me. Everyone is amazed how affectionate she is.
Thanks for listening, I know I do waffle on!
Here are some pictures.
