Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Received an email from our pup's owners yesterday & said she was ready to come home to us. The also sent me a photo of the vet health record package from Friday's appointment that will come with her.

We are so excited!

Now to find her a name!

I will also ask them if she's coming with some food as I want to switch it (to a better one & that is available at my local pet food store). How much should I ask for so I can do the transition. 1 or 2 weeks' worth?

Thanks

Congrats on the new puppy!
I can't really help on the food transition thing as we switched our puppy's food cold turkey and went straight to the raw diet the night we got her home. Although we were given a bag of the food that the breeder was feeding her but we just donated it.

My son decided to name her Ripley (Aliens fan  Wink ) & it suits her well.

We picked her up on May 22. The food switch went well. (Mind you, now her gas is potent enough to make you leave the room!) Crate training is going well, even though when she thinks she has an audience, you'd think the world was ending. It only lasts for 15 - 20 min, then she's quiet all night.

Leash training is going well, potty is hit & miss so we're trying the bell on the door. She absolutely LOVES people! But she's so submissive, most clients are great with her & are gently trying to get her to not instantly go upside down.

We've our first rebel moment. Let's roll in sewage. Let's dig up the muddy pot holes in the driveway. Let's sneak into a room, find an expensive object that means something to someone, then sneak back so no one catches me moment... And of course bite everything because it's so much fun to hear everyone yelp, even though they're constantly trying to shove toys in my mouth to stop me. Oh and the cat... trying to convince the cat to play.

She'd doubled in size when we got her & she's doubled again & her coat colour/pattern is changing.

Everyone loves her. Very Happy

Oh... and she's finding her voice & likes to talk back to people like a typical teenager. Rolling Eyes

Ha ha!  Very Happy 

Yeah, new puppies are awesome! And she is so fluffy! Good thing she likes hugs because I can't help myself to smoosh all that fluff!

Some people have been asking when we would go make the rounds for them to say hi to Ripley, they want to see her before she looses the puppy look. Most of these places are public places so we haven't ventured out yet (other than a close friend who had healthy mini Shnauzers, one place that didn't have dogs & a client who brought their dog along). Not sure if I'm being paranoid but I've never taken a puppy younger than 4 to 6 months old to make rounds. Especially at the pet food store. They are itching to meet her.
