Oh and not just a dog - a half Weimariner, half chocolate lab, a "Labmariner"... a really big dog! Well right now she's probably about 6lbs but soon enough she'll be huge.
Currently, we are deep in the throws of house breaking her, crate training and starting to teach her some basic skills like don't chew on the babies hands or butt no matter how hard she pulls your tail... so I have to say even though she's just the cutest thing ever, ever. She's a little intense. In fact I would say she makes me nervous - most likely because anytime she's out I am on 100% potty patrol, watching her like a hawk. The slightest squatting motion and a I drop everything, grab her leash and potty treats and run her out to her 'zone' as fast as I can. I am so the crazy dog training lady. I've never potty trained a puppy before but I have potty trained a two year old and it is done in a very similar fashion. I'm hopeful that with time and lots of hard work training her and giving her attention she'll turn into a beloved family member and a nice house mate. Much my same hope for my children ;)
She has already though made a life-long best friend in Ava. I really believe Ava truly loves her. I hope I love her like that one day too!
Oh and her name is Bella ;)
