I introduced myself a long time ago on the introduction thread, but Iím mainly a lurker/learner. This forum has been a great resource.
Zelda Violet is from Starbornís recent Nike/Brio litter. We fell in love with Nike over the winter and feel so lucky to bring home one of her pups. Zelda is already silvering like gorgeous Brio. I can't wait to see more of her silver with black tips.
Zeldaís favorite things: playing, more playing, chewing, snuggling, kissing, zooming around, training games, and meeting everybody. Thereís nothing shy or hesitant about this pup! We started out using the Focused Puppy methods and signed up for kindergarten classes that also use positive reinforcement. Weíre excited that sheís getting her next set of shots Monday so she can start going for walks beyond our little front yard. We live in an urban area with a lot of dogs who arenít necessarily well cared-for so I've been paranoid about keeping her healthy. Iím constantly amazed at how little concern she has for city sounds. Dump trucks, helicopters, ambulances, loud people, itís all good. We had a storm yesterday and she was more than happy to go play with me in the yard in the rain. Sheís not a fan of being dried off, but otherwise doesnít mind getting wet. She always smacks her lips about 4 times right before falling asleep. Love her.
These pictures are all at least a week old. It's amazing how quickly they grow. She is going through an great punk rock hair phase right now and the silver is getting more obvious when she shakes her head around to kill a toy.
