Wow, I've had her a week already! How time flies. She seems to be growing so fast! I came home from work yesterday and I swear I could see that she was bigger than when I left for work.
She had a potty accident in the house last night. I think she might have a bladder or urinary tract infection because I take her outside every 15-30 minutes and she will pee everytime. When she had the accident in the house we had just came in from outside 10 minutes prior. What is weird is that she can go 5 hours in her cage without going potty. My mom has a HUGE dog cage that the puppy stays in during the day if I'm working so she doesn't have to stay in her little crate all day. She doesn't potty in the big cage at all. I guess I can't really complain because we've only had 3 potty accidents in 8 days.
Most puppies bite/nip but my puppy really likes to bite and bite hard! Did you know that deaf puppies bite harder? When puppies are wrestling with their littermates and bite too hard the other puppy will yelp loudly and the biting puppy learns not to bite so hard next time. Deaf puppies can't hear their littermates yelp, so they don't know to ease up on their biting. Everytime she bites I tap my finger on her nose, if she doesn't stop then I tap a little harder. She's learning slowly but surely.
I keep a night light on in my room so that she can see if she wakes up. She's only slept in my bed one night because everytime we go to bed she thinks it's wrestling time. Plus it doesn't help that I have a waterbed and everytime I move she tries to bite the bed.
My mom is really spoiling her. She keeps giving the puppy table scraps which is a big no no in my book. The puppy runs to the refridgerator if someone walks in the kitchen. She will sit there and whine until my mom gives in and gives her something. UGH! I keep telling my mom to stop it, I don't want an obese dog but I keep catching her sneaking something to the puppy.
I still haven't decided on a name for sure. This is terrible! I told my mom last night that when I have kids they won't have a name for 2 months.
Sorry that I haven't been online much. I try to spend as much time with her as I can. I try to hop online when she's napping so I don't feel guilty leaving her in the crate while she's awake. I don't want to leave her running around the house unsupervised until we get the house breaking thing under control more.
