Growing Like a Weed

And More

     ~ Cute Faces

Cypress_1305-8x10-HiResCypress weighs 40 pounds now, she is growing like a weed!  She and Willow and Daisy play and play, they get along great.  I have been taking Cypress to my dog obedience classes and she is already doing well as a demo dog!  I will take her to puppy classes in January at my friend Kathy’s dog training center, as I will enjoy being a “student” and socializing Cypress.  She is very healthy and beautiful, I get tons of comments on her.  She is still quite shy but we are working on that, and I socialize her daily, I think she will come around as she gets older.  She is very bonded with me and doesn’t wander at all, she likes to stay near me which is great.

I hope you are having a wonderful week, take care, Jan~

November 27, 2017 — Cypress and Willow

 

 

~Veterinary Visit News

(November 14, 2017) — I weighed Cypress at the vet today, she weighs 31 pounds!!!  OhMyGoodness!!!  And there is not a speck of fat on her…

 

(December 1, 2017) — Cypress had her sixteen-week titer and it came back fabulous so she won’t need another DAP right now.  We did her rabies vaccine, so she is set for a while.  I plan to do the two-vaccine Lepto in a bit, as we do have Lepto in this area, it is not a combo vaccine (I did that with Willow too).  Cypress is very healthy, no signs of parasites and she is gaining weight. Her condition and coat are beautiful.  She is very clumsy, she is like a foal or a fawn, she trips over her own feet and legs sometimes!  She is around 35 pounds now at four months.

~At Class With Jan

I took her to obedience class this week, she is just learning her basics and I was able to use her for demos.  I am happy now that Cypress’s immunity is in full swing, she can meet more (safe) dogs.  She is kinda shy and reserved at first with people and new situations, she is more that way than Willow was, but she is coming around.  With that type of temperament comes the very positive aspects where she stays close to me and doesn’t wander off, checks for my approval constantly, and is VERY bonded with me.  She is VERY biddable.

~Cypress and Willow (with Daisy)

24172987_10214230882749296_630886405484584027_oCypress and Willow and Daisy adore each other, they all play and play, and they all have similar gentle play styles.  I chuckle that at first Daisy was unimpressed with a new puppy in our family, but within a very short time, they became fast friends!  Willow is the best big sister ever, she is so gentle and patient with Cypress, I am so happy.  I always make sure to give each dog their separate, special time with me, while I leave the other two outside or whatever- I feel that is one of the reasons I have always had multiple dogs that get along.

Talk to you soon, Hugs, Jan  

PS: I am always happy to be a reference as you know!

Thank you, Jan. We know she is already a superstar in the making. All our readers are watching with us to hear the news of Cypress. Of course, we are saddened that she is growing up at the same time. They just do not stay babies long enough.
