Baby’s First Week

Oh babies!  LOL  They are the cutest thing in the world and a reminder that everything has to be explored and possibly tasted.  I clearly had forgotten this stage: we are making 20 trips outside a day, praising every outside potty, and the only accidents have been me not getting her downstairs fast enough in the morning and twice in her kennel when i was at work.  Can’t take my eyes off her in the house.  Oops, move that cord.  Oh, better put those books up higher.  What’s in your mouth?  She loves the bark chips that surround her new kingdom, it is loaded with baby size sticks.  


She has met her first new friend, played chase, found toys to last a lifetime (some new, some hand-me-downs), gone on a couple short walks, and loves just surveying the yard. Her Whistle device that tracks her movements and also has full GPS tracking should she ever get loose (not likely by any stretch!) is now on a smaller collar and her little walking harness should last several months.  She is about 17 lbs of almost pure love – i think a couple of those pounds are razor blade crocodile teeth!! 


We are following Cliff’s suggestions to the tee and she is eating three times a day.  She loves the puppy food.  NuVet supplements, check.  She is starting to respond to her name, but not consistently.  She likes going upstairs, but I have yet to entice her to come down on her own.  I have some friends nearby with an aging dog and a one year old that might take Franny one day a week while I am at work – one of the adults in the house is retired and home all day.  


So – the updates from our first few days are great.  I will probably be exhausted before we leave potty training stage, but it goes by fast enough, i will miss this little snuggle face as she gets bigger.  🙂
If you want to use for the blog – feel free – edit as you like.  I mostly wanted to let you know all is well out here in Hillsboro!! I am thinking about the whole naming thing now.  Not sure yet what I want her to be “officially”. 

I hope you are well.  K Marie and Franny

We are happy that you could bring her home–we had the Longhairs that were not yet promised. She is a lovely girl–but a baby as you say. Thanks for the update.
