More About Zoe  06-19-07

So, Zoe is doing very well.  She is really doing great with going outside to potty, and still really enjoys sleeping.  She loves to sleep in the kitchen either in her bed or on the cool floor.   She is still going through the chewing stage, so we are really on her about that…  it figures we have the dog that seems to like the taste of Bitter Apple… 

She is dragging her leash around the house and does well with it until she decides it is time to play and that the leash is her toy…  She is great with meeting people, and does not show much fear.  Our neighbors really love her and sometimes we think they come over to visit her instead of us!

She is doing better with sleeping in her crate, though it really isn’t her favorite thing – so different than Monte who absolutely loved his crate.  She sleeps pretty much through the night and she has been successful at holding it, but in the morning she REALLY has to go!

Zoe really likes towels – she will play with one at any time…   we found this out when she found the towel that we kept under her water bowl.  One day she got a hold of it and yanked, flipping her full water bowl over!   Too funny.    ;D

So we had our first puppy class tonight and she did a good job.  Only one of her classmates showed tonight (though there are supposed to be others) – a Pomeranian of course…    what a little furball.   Funny thing was that whenever people came over they all wanted to pet Zoe, but didn’t give much attention to “Tinkerbell”…  yes, I said Tinkerbell… 

So, as soon as the trainer starts talking about the course outline, etc, what does Zoe do?  She stretches right out for a nap about 3 feet in front of my chair in the “Superman Bullie” pose…   She was out.   The trainer actually had to laugh.   After the intro, we worked on really basic sit and down using a treat as a motivator.

It was a lot of fun, and as we ended the people from the next class all had a great time playing with Zoe.

Needless to say, she came home and was ready for a nap!
