I've been enjoying staying with my Granny and Grandpa so much, that my Mom decided that it would be a good idea for us to both extend our stay a little. I'm really turning into such a great girl, and spend hours playing with my new brothers and sisters.
My Grandpa and Mom have recently nicknamed me "Shark Tooth"! You see, due to my first few months of malnutrition and neglect, I wasn't able to teeth properly – so, most of my baby teeth still haven't fallen out and my permanent teeth have already come through, which means I now have two rows of teeth! The vet said that this isn't a big issue, and they will wait for me to finish teething completely. Once I have all of my "big girl" teeth, they will do a small operation to remove any stubborn baby ones – and will most likely do this when I go in to get spayed. Read more...
This week, Grandpa put in a dog door! As the weather has been really cold and wet, us dogs decided that we wouldn't go to all the hassle of asking to be let out when we need to go and do our business – after all, that means we'd have to actually go out in that weather! So, instead, we thought ourselves very clever to just have a quiet wee (or worse!) on the mats inside. That didn't go down so well! I was the first of the six dogs to learn to use the dog door, and I leap through it with ease. Shame, poor Heathcliff (the shortest of the lot) cannot get through it, so he just sticks his head through and cries. Thankfully, he is fully housetrained (such a show-off, if you ask me), so he still has the courtesy to call if he'd like to go in or out.
My Mom has told me that, from next week, we're going to start our daily walkie regime. Until now, as I have been sick and hadn't yet had my shots, we've kept all exercise confined to our own garden. I haven't been on a leash before, but I do enjoy chewing leashes that lie around, so I am interested to see what I make of it. I am super excited to go and explore. Will tell you all about it next week!
