You think you can judge a puppy by the pretty little look in her face?
I've learned this wild face.
It says "I want to jump into the sky and lick your skin and maybe I'll be a little rough with my teeth but I'm a puppy and don't you LOVE this wild face?"
Bartlett is doing really well. Today she had her last distemper puppy shot. She has added almost two pounds to her athletic frame. Cranky has proven to be a better disciplinarian than I expected (I trained all the other dogs). He can now walk her through the house, on the floor, to go outside — and back in. It's great that she's getting reliable floor time.
At the vet's today, Bartlett was so excited to see other actual humans that she went a little nuts. We know we have to get busy socializing her with people; maybe tomorrow. Malls, Christmas shoppers, kids. Perfect! She'll be a friend magnet.
Come say hi.
