It's been a week...

So I thought it was time for a Pepper update!

She's been home for a week today--which coincidentally makes her exactly 11 weeks old. So far, she's been a dream puppy. The first few days she was *really* bad with crying when she was left alone for even a few minutes--just like having a new baby, lol. But I've been working on teaching her that people leaving isn't a scary thing (I'm used to separation anxiety training, due to having a Bichon...) and she seems to be improving a lot.

I bought an exercise pen, and it works amazingly. It's one of the fully adjustable ones, so that I can either put it into a square/circle, or put it in a straight line to "rope off" half the room--which lets her see everything without being in harm's way. At first she would cry and throw herself against the side, but she's gotten used to it and seems pretty happy to be in it now.

And fortunately, Evie has really warmed up to her. They play a lot, and Evie even has finally consented to sleeping on my bed again (yay!). She has only snapped at Pepper once in the last few days, but I can't blame her, since Pepper was walking over the sleeping Evie's side at the time.

And now... pictures! It's rained pretty much every day since I've gotten her, but it's supposed to be sunny for the next few days, so I hope to have better outdoors pictures soon.

(I wish this last one didn't have ripped up kleenex, but she keeps finding things to rip up somehow... and I have to sweep 10 times a day. /lol)

Tina, Pepper, Evie, and Einstein

Aw. I love those photos. It's such a joy when everything starts falling into place. They're both adorable.
