Seda has officially been our baby girl 3 weeks today
Already, it's hard to remember what our days/nights were like before her arrival..lol!
She is active, playful, mischievious and just plain adorable!
A few of our current dilemmas:
It's time for her 1st "at home " bath. She is 13wks old. I plan to use Pantene for this bath as I've noticed that several forum users have used this. Do I need to dilute the shampoo? Should I use the Pantene conditioner. Is there something more appropriate that I can pick up at Petsmart?
Potty training..Ugh! Right now she is successfully using the pad in her x-pen about 50% of the time. Her wire crate is attached with the door open. Because she was seemingly not wanting to pee/poop in the same place intitially, I took the advice of a forum user and reduced the size of the pen and added a second pad. (The pads are in pad holders). Nevertheless, there are times she finds a little corner or spot on the pen floor to tinkle. I've tried to catch her and redirect, but she is able to empty at lightening speed and has nothing left when I get her to the pad
. Yesterday I caught her starting to squat in the crate but by the time I could get her out to the pad, she had once again tinkled already. She has also chosen one of the pads as a place to sleep/chill! The weather is finally warming here in Chicago and we would love to have her outside to play, but we really need her pad trained as we have days when we are both at work and need her to learn to use the pad. I am afraid if we have her outside to much and she chooses to eliminate while we are outside, it will sabotage our efforts to teach her the pads are her potty spot.
ANY and ALL advise would be GREATLY appreciated!!!!
Happy St. Pat's to all!!!
