I had forgotten how exhausting it is to have a puppy. I can't take my eyes off of her for a minute, while she's in her teething stage and I have to take her out to potty constantly. The cool thing is that I don't actually have to go outside with her anymore though....by the 5th day I was able to open the front door, put her down and say, "Go Potty," and she would go down the steps and out into the grass all by herself and go potty. Then when she is done going "tinkle" I say, "Go Potty Again," and if she has to go "number 2" then she will go, but if she doesn't, then she will just go "tinkle" again. It's pretty funny because one day I was trying to get her to go potty both ways before I brought her back into the house, so I kept saying, "Go Potty Again," and she went "tinkle" 5 times. LOL What an obedient little doggie!
Awww! Isn't she cute when she sleeps?
Here she is chewing on a branch with Sunny!
This is one of the things I'm trying to break her of........tormenting my cat, Ling ling!
So far I've taught her.....sit, down, speak, fetch, wait (meaning she has to sit down and wait until I call her to come through the doorway into the house and also before going outside). I just started working with her on Come an she's doing better with it the last two days. I taught her hide -n- seek....where she has to wait, while I hide somewhere in the house and then I yell, "Sophie Come," and then she has to come find me. She loves this game because she gets a treat when she finds me! I don't know if I will teach her all of the tricks that I taught our dog Sunny, but we'll see.
Oh boy, here we go again!
Wow! A moment where she's not going after the cats......that's amazing!
Trust me when I tell you.......THIS IS NOT A GOOD IDEA! LOL Cheetoh is not one to be messed with and he doesn't allow anyone near his tail, especially since the raccoons took the end of it off, about 6 years ago. He is a tough cat.....he's been hit by a car......been in many cat fights.......been in fights with raccoons at least a few times......and has been cornered by dogs trying to kill him. He really isn't afraid of anything and so I tried to warn Sophie to not mess with him. Oh sure, Cheetoh played with her a little bit, but then.....well, let's just say this......Sophie knows her place with him now!

I grabbed my camera, quickly switched the lenses and by the time I got outside, there were two eagles hovering and circling over me. I snapped a few shots and then knocked on the living room window and pointed up to get Andy's attention. As Andy was coming out the door, I’m overly excited and I’m saying, “I’ve never seen them do this before......Look how low they are........they’re just hovering over us!” Then Andy said, “Honey, they’re after your puppy!”
Just then I realized that they were hovering right over where the puppy was playing in the grass. GASP! No wonder they were looking down......duh! That never even dawned on me! Andy quickly grabbed the puppy and put her in the garage and the eagles continued to look for her for a little while, circling the house and looking in the front yard and the back. Isn’t that scary? Oh my goodness, I was so freaked out! Andy probably nabbed her up just in time. Can you imagine how horrifying it would have been for me to see an eagle grab my puppy and take off with her? I probably would have been hysterical!
They keep coming back and circling looking for her, so obviously they remember where they see their prey.
Now I'm constantly on the lookout for Eagles hovering above! They can just find themselves some other Entree because they're not getting my little puppy!!!
