Miley is 16 Weeks!
Well, here is an update on Miss Miley. At 16 weeks, she is right at 5 lbs, so if the saying holds true, she will be around 10 lbs full grown. She is quite a sweetheart, very smart, loves to play and fetch and tries her best to get at my daughter's toys. We have been to two classes at Petsmart Puppy Kindergarten and Miley is by far the smallest pup there. I have found that I only have to work with her just a few times before she catches on. We are putting her classes on hold, though, because we found out that she had/has Giardia a week ago. She just finished 6 days on Panacur, so hopefully it is gone now, but not sure yet.
Miley has had soft poos since we brought her home. With having Giardia, it is hard to tell if her issues are a result of that or if she has food allergies/sensitivities. We will find out soon, though, I guess, if her retest is negative and she is still having issues. Today, her poos were more solid than they have ever been, so fingers crossed. She is on ID food and I really want to get her back on something better for her that is grain free.
Potty training could be better, but between her having a UTI a few weeks back, having Giardia and my crazy travel schedule with work, we have had a lot of obstacles to overcome. My DH and DD don't make it any easier, either.
All that aside, I have to say that Miley is fantastic with my soon to be four year-old daughter and gives love to ALL of us, not just me who primarily cares for her. She is so patient and calm, even when DD insists on carrying her when she would rather be on the ground running and playing. She gives kisses to us all the time and actually goes up to my daughter to get loved on. It makes my heart melt to see the two of them together (although I sometimes have to cringe when my daughter picks her up and carries her around...gentle as she is with Miley, it is still scary).
I need to post photos. Anyone know how to do that from an iPad?
