New puppy.

We have our new puppy. It seemed like a long wait.We saw her at 3 weeks. We picked her up at 7 weeks one day.  She is a sweet heart. Her name is Ziva. She is doing really well with house training.
Well actually Mr.T and I are doing really well with remembering to take her out. Funny thing about training a dog. The pets people do all the work.
She rides well in the car, which is a good thing because we plan to do some traveling and camping with her,if the Iowa weather ever warms up. It has been a challenge to take her out when it is raining and cold. Not so much for her as for her old people.
It has been a long time since we had a new puppy.The last one we still had kids at home that I could say take out the puppy. Now it is all on us. Not complaining because she already has our hearts.
It is taking much time and I seem to not get much else done. Feed the puppy,play with the puppy, take the puppy out. By then it is nap time.  Not much else getting done but the basics. meals,dishes and laundry. I really would like to do some sewing.We will see how the week goes.
Hope you all have a great week. Stay warm. j

Is she a Sheltie? It's difficult to tell when they're so young.

I know exactly what you're going through at the moment because we got our new puppy last August. Wow, has it been that long? He's come such a long way but he is still a puppy at heart.

Enjoy your times with Ziva. They are what definitely makes a house a home.

Awww, she's adorable! but what breed? a mix perhaps? From the shelter? or a local breeder? I am so looking for a new dog myself!

She is so cute. I am the mom to 2 doxies. Our pets just steal our hearts. I'm glad you shared her debut.

Our new girl is a Sheltie. We have had 4 shelties over the last 30 years. 2 at a time.
I found her on the internet in Burlington Iowa. The kennel is J and K kennels. Home raised.They keep great records. Very nice people. j

A new puppy always brings so much joy and love into a house, Ziva is a very pretty dog, I know all this early time spent on her training will pay off, you'll end up with a wonderfully adjusted and confident little dog! My first dog required the same, and she has turned out very well, although she thinks she is Her Royal Highness LOL!!!
