So, I haven’t had a post in a while and I’d like to update you guys on why. Things have gotten a little crazy in my house because….
We drove 3 hours to get her at a shelter in Orlando. She had three sisters and three brothers who all looked completely different. We wish we had money for two puppies so we could’ve gotten one of her sisters too because we hate breaking up families. She’s happy though and loves her trips to the beach, and park. She’s only 9 weeks old, so we have to take her out about every two hours to potty train her. Because of this we haven’t gotten much sleep!
Luckily she’s starting to settle in, which means I can get more done. She is extremely smart and amazingly sweet. She has stolen our heart, but she’s still working on our cat. lol Dani grew up with my parents dogs, both older. She’s not used to dogs running at her trying to play like Rosalie does. Dani has warmed up quite a bit though, so hopefully they’ll be playing together soon.
I don’t know how big she’s going to get. Her mom was at the shelter and she was medium sized. They said her mom is a dachshund/retriever/x mix and her dad is an Irish Setter. She doesn’t look Irish Setter at all and honestly she doesn’t look like her mom. I’ve been reading about dogs genetics and it’s really interesting. It seems that since dogs have been breed with every kind of dog there is, all dogs carry DNA from other breeds. Therefore, when two dogs mate the offspring will have 50% genes from the mom and 50% from the dad. That however doesn’t mean they’ll get the same genes, they could end up with any type of dogs genes the parents carry in their DNA. So she could have anything in her. We’ll just have to wait and see how big she gets.
I have a couple posts and videos scheduled for next week, so be on the look out!
Do you have any puppy advice for us? Do you have a puppy or dog? What kind are they? What funny/mischievous things have they done?
