Aha moment

Mae has been with us for two weeks today and she's fitting in beautifully. Timmy seems fine with her (most of the time ) and both my kitties have taken our new little family member in stride. She sleeps in her crate like a pro from day one 9:00-6:00 during the week and until 7:00 on the weekends with no accidents. She gobbles down her food and man can this little one eat! It's funny how differently I'm handling Mae than Timmy but #2, whether it's human or puppy, seems so much easier then the first time around. I guess part of this calmness has to do with knowing that the mistakes I made the first time around didn't ruin things. Mae has really done great in the potty training department choosing to go outside rather then her potty patch, but that's what Timmy does so I'm fine with that. I now feel so fortunate that Timmy took to scratching on the door to go outside poor Mae just stands there. We're working on bells, she hasn't knocked on them at all yet however but I do every time we go out. All her accidents have been at the door, which makes me the guilty non observant one but my darn couch is in my direct view of the door. So what's a girl to do??? Move all the furniture in my family room while the family is out so I can sit and get a wonderful clear view. So far today I have been able to see her at the door and she goes right out and does her business, I've only HAD to take her out twice when she was due to go, but the other trips were initiated by her. Mae's reward for doing so well today has been to take a long nap outside her pen, which I haven't let her do yet. I crocheted a sweater for her and put on the velcro so she's nice an toasty, and I sewed on a ring at the back do I can attach a leash when we go outside at night to do our business. She had such a GREAT time at the Laurie's play date, I think she's still recuperating. It was so fun to see her play with Laila and her sister and brother. I didn't take any pictures but I know others did, I called the the Puppyrazzi.

Here's Mae in her little tutu sweater. I always wanted to make one of those but couldn't justify making one and having Timmy wear it.

Love the tutu sweater! It goes great with her coloring. Such a pretty little girl and a quick learner.

I'm so glad things are going so well. It's encouraging to those of us considering another, too. I love the sweater! I just sent my Mom an email asking her if she'd knit one for Ludo (she loves to knit) - didn't even think of that! Love the updates from you and take care!

It didn't take long at all, she's so small and I was able to use some of the yarn in my stash. Unfortunately I'm on a crocheting sabbatical because my elbow is really hurting me, I think my two baby blankets did me in. I'm going to move over to the sewing machine and extra fleece material for a couple more coats to satisfy my creative needs. But oh my gosh this one is killing me... little black dress with pearls!


She is such a good little girl and yes I think she's pretty darn smart too!

I think you might be right but she's such a maniac tomboy that I'm sure they will be destroyed. Perhaps I've found my agility dog .

Here's Emmie in her party dress. She wore it on Halloween and then yesterday at doggie playtime with Benjamin and other "littles." I love dressing her up! -Jeanne-
