All these puppy pictures are making me miss my potbellied puppy. She grew up so fast.
Brief update, though we haven't been up to much. Training is going phenomenal. Biggest thing is heeling! Its been hard to teach, though we are making slow progress towards walking on a loose leash. Other than that, she is great, sometimes she'll have a stubborn streak and ignore me until she decides shes done exploring. Most of the time she'll come when called the first time. She got spayed a month ago, and it's healed beautifully. Keeping her mellow wasn't difficult, as she mostly regulated herself and stayed calm until it was healed.
The stomping as stopped. She's gotten rather sneaky about running around the house. Only stomping when she's excited.
We had our first negative dog park experience, german shepherd came after Misha aggressively. Teaching her that I'm a safe zone when she's anxious about something has been the best thing i've taught her. She came to me and I was able to keep the dog off of her, though. They left and went through a different gate to come into the park, so I hadn't left. Dog comes running towards us, and Misha beelines for a corner, yelling her head off before looping back to me. She got her point across and it sniffed at her and walked away. I feel it was entirely her ability to communicate to that dog. No one was harmed, thankfully!
Currently her favorite thing to do is rally every dog in the park to play a game of chase. She's quick for her size, but there's always a dog that's quicker.
We got our first snow for the year a few days ago! Misha's been in the snow, but it's never snowed when she was in it. She was unsure at first but when beserk when she got to play in it... at 1am. We both had a ton of fun playing in the snow.
