Having a girl dog is a lot of fun. Even though we've only had her for about two weeks, I'm loving dressing her up. So much so that I've even started making her dresses. I just got this pattern from http://petitepuppypatterns.com/Site/Home-1.html. So great! The pattern is just adorable and fairly easy. Check out the first dress that I've made so far:
It's hard to get good photos of a bouncing puppy. Especially when her brothers get involved:
(Sorry for the sideways-ness, it wouldn't load strait)
On the whole, things are going well. Vixen is finally sleeping through the night, and, aside from a few snarling matches, the boys seem to have accepted her.
The bad news? Potty training is slow going, and she seems to be dragging the boys down with her. Luckily it's warming up and we can start going outside more regularly. Keep your fingers crossed.
Also? She very nippy. We've been yelping to show her it hurts, and putting her on the floor when she gets too rough in her play. We've also been shoving chew toys at her.
So all in all, she's a puppy :) We adore her and she's been wonderful. Now only if she'd stop leaving little puddles everywhere....
