Big girlie, Heidi. What a sweetie! She and her sisters, Holly and Callie, are attending their first puppy classes with last night's class my first to attend. After almost seven weeks since my accident (but still in a cast), I've been able to handle puppies again! :) It was a little challenging for me, but oh, so fun! to see the girls work in class and actually be part of it. And today, Heidi is the only one of the sisters inside with me.
As you can imagine, handling a puppy who is just entering teenager-hood can be a feat. . . but with THREE girls, it can be a monumental task! So after months of all three girls sleeping inside our home, we've now moved to working individually, all. . . day. . . long, and Heidi is in with me for the next few days, and doing very well. Sitting for lead attach/detach, waiting at doorways, heading to the door for going potty, and resting while chewing on a bone. Extremely quiet, this girl will be hard act to follow for her sister, Holly, who often reminds me she's waiting (she is the vocal one. . . there's one in every crowd!). :D Each girl has their own personality, and what great fun to get to know them! And with those individual bents, we've discovered the handlers that are so very compatible with each puppy at class. Stephanie works with Holly, while Stephanie's dad (my sweetie, Todd) works with Callie, and I work with Heidi. Of course, during the week, I will work with each girl, practicing sits, stays, downs, and manners. And what a full week it is turning out to be!
Thank you to Sanitago and Olga at Thevent Golden Retrievers (SPAIN), for the chance to sire this fabulous litter with their winning stud, Jack (Vestjafel's Magic Elf).
