We said goodbye to our last puppy from the Serena x Valley litter last week, so we are enjoying more one-on-one time with the dogs. Although, of course, Gracie still takes up most of our time! She is growing up so fast and learning so much each day. This litter was very developmentally advanced from day one, and Gracie continues to exceed our expectations. She learned to be quiet while crated in the car in one day. She goes on 40-minute car rides without a peep at 9 weeks old!
We have started taking her hiking at a trail near our house. She loved it and walked most of the way, although we put her in a carrier when she seemed tired. She also went to her first puppy class and she was the best behaved puppy there! She loved all the people and played nicely with all the other puppies. During breaks, she sat quietly at Dan’s feet. She received many pets and compliments!
Other than socializing Gracie, we have been trying out our Firepaw slatmill with a few of our dogs. I can’t tell if they are enjoying it yet, but it sure is cool to watch them run while I sit on the couch!
We are also taking advantage of our new patio space with outdoor outlets to groom our dogs. Lillie is pictured enjoying her spa day!
