Duchess 16-18 weeks

I finally got to meet the folks from Kings Gate Club - my puppy sponsor! We met Nip & Jackie for lunch and Baron, another King's Gate puppy and his Puppy Raiser Lorraine got to come, too! Thanks, King's Gate Club!

Today, we went to Peaches Restaurant and had lunch with my working Guide Dog friend, Pixie. She is a really good mentor for me and she let me snooze on her paw!

I went to the hair salon with my puppy raiser last week - I am getting really good at 'down-stay'! I am so proud of myself.

I had my 16 week vaccine and am now 'street legal', so I have been getting out more. We go to Publix every week and I am doing GREAT in the store. I weighed 32 lbs. at the vet and they say I am just perfect! I am learning more every day - we're working on 'stay' now and that's a tough one for a puppy.

14 Weeks

I had a very busy week, again! I had a puppy play date with my buddy, Daphne (I am STILL older!) and we played in the bird bath and wrestled each other. We had so much fun!

I love to snuggle up next to my half-sister, Tiller. I crawled right into her crate with her (she didn't think it was a very good idea and she left).

My puppy raiser took me to something called 'Brunch' at The Colony on Sunday. I wasn't impressed but found the furnishings quite comfortable. Everyone was very impressed with my manners (and my beauty!).

My puppy raiser says she is sad because I have to 'retire' the little puppy coat I am wearing and get a bigger one. I don't get it - isn't that what 'raiser' means? People sure are silly.....
