Kallie is 9 1/2 months & weighing in at about 12 lbs. She's such a big girl now! Settled down so much. I agree, Karen, I don't feel like I have a baby anymore. She absolutely NEVER gets into anything. She has about a zillion toys, but she loves DH's empty water bottles. He puts the cap on really tight & it only takes her a few minutes to get it off. After fishing the cap out of her mouth many times, she's learned. Last night she chewed the cap off, came to me with it in her mouth & just stood there waiting for me to take it. Here it is, Mom. No resistance at all. Made me LOL! She adores laying in both our laps for loving time. But when she wants to sleep, she moves away & stretches out. Or will get down on the floor. Not a cuddly sleeper - wants her space! Except at night in bed, then she likes to spoon. Wish I could say the same for potty training - still find the occasional poop in the house. She hasn't peed in the house in months, but she's just not got the poop thing right yet. It's much better cuz I started taking her to the front yard to potty. She's associating the back yard as playtime. So separating the two (play/potty) has helped tremendously. I hate her pottying in the front yard, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do! I love that she's so well behaved. So all of that hard work in the puppy stages really DO pay off. We now have Kallie, the dog/companion/friend that is the love of our lives. Now if we can get thru the blowing coat stage........
