It’s three weeks today since we brought home our little Berra. She’s growing fast! Smart as a whip for thirteen weeks old. She rings a bell to go potty, although she also rings it because she LOVES to be outside. And since her bladder is about the size of a chickpea we hear ding ding about every ten minutes. She also knows how to sit, give paw and lie down on command (well treats are quite enticing). We’re working on come, but she gets SO excited and distracted by our toes, fingers, legs, arms and anything else that’s in the direct vicinity of her eyes, because they feel SO good on her
Madea has warmed up to her and they play together rather well. Every once in awhile Berra will bite Madea’s ear, or tail, and Madea will give her a what for, but Berra’s a persistent little bugger so goes back for more, and more.
Kommit, on the other
I do think that Kommit will come around, but until she does, I am ever vigilant and never leave those two unattended. I will leave Berra alone with Madea because SHE actually ran to Berra’s defense one time when Kommit attacked her! I do believe she feels a bit protective of Berra. Amazing how dogs interact within their pack. Even though I’m the Alpha of THEM, they are still trying to determine WHO the Alpha is amongst EACH OTHER. I think Kommit may be it, but I don’t think Madea is going to tolerate Kommit harming the little one (who won’t be little forever, so Kommit will be in for a rude awakening one day!).
Berra loves to climb ON things, like our legs and Madea, and she likes to climb INTO things, like the toy box. Here she was trying to hide.
When she realized I found her, she peeked out at me, like Oh, you found me. Well, since you distracted me, I’m gonna attack those toes of yours because they are so soft and feel so good on my teeth!
Here Berra and Madea are face fighting. They sound like a Hyena and a Squeak Toy (you can determine which is which).
Berra looking at me, as if to say, WHAT the heck is THAT? Can I chew on it?
Berra after drinking MORE water which is another reason she has to ding ding the bell every ten minutes.
And here she is in one of her FAVORITE spots—next to the slider. It’s cool there AND close to the BELL! She plays SO hard and needs to nap quite often. Too bad her naps are SHORT.
Like I mentioned, she loves to CLIMB and what better place than Dalan’s lap.
She LOVES Dalan and kisses him the MOST. I berra get any kisses. I suppose it’s because I’m the one who is always saying NO.
I think the reason she doesn’t know her name yet is because she is confused as to what it IS. She fluctuates between Puppy Vicious, Berra and No or a combination of Berra No. I’ll have to work on that….poor thing, one confused female in the house is more than enough!
