I'm part of Post A Day 2016

It has been a bit of a mental week since we got Mazikeen.  She is a firecracker running about, playing, taunting Harper into play, stealing all of Harper’s toys, rearranging whatever her tiny mouth can get around, and of course toileting everywhere.  She does sleep a lot though, but all puppies do when they are not whirling dervishes.  She has not discovered that night is for sleeping, so Thursday night we got 4 hours sleep, Friday night we managed 4:30 and last night manage 6 hours, so it is getting better.

Harper is starting to warm to this little thing running about, but being about 30 times bigger and hundreds of times stronger she is a bit rough and tumble, so we have to monitor them especially as Harper being a Staffordshire Bull is pure muscle and very boisterous.  One thing amusing me is Harper vying for top dog.  Obviously, I am the Alpha male and always have been, so every time I sit down she is there at my feet and has all of a sudden started doing as she is told, obviously aiming to please.

My plan for Mazikeen is to train her as a working dog with the help of the breeder, although primarily she will be a pet and not be used as a gun dog she will command on the whistle.  She comes from a long line of champion working dogs who are top in their field so she will take to it easily as it is in her genes.  She is starting to use the puppy training pads for toilet use with few accidents, but all the same, she has learned very quickly.  I have decided to take the breeders advice and stick to the food that he has been feeding his dogs on, she seems to like it, so why to change, and it has the Royal Warrant on it, so if it’s good enough for the Queen then it is good enough for us.

I have been busy with other matters of a K9 nature.  The breeder uses the same vet, so I had to have all the details and history transferred over which was quite simple. I then registering us as her legal keepers through the Kennel Club and at the same time ordered her lineage documentation at a cost of £47.  Next, I had to transfer her to us for the microchip registration, so there was another £16.  Insurance next, but we have 5 weeks free from the Kennel Club, so I am not rushing into anything yet.  We have Harper insured so may add her to that policy.

As for general life, that seems to have been put on hold for the moment.  I have not done any knitting or reading since Thursday, also we have not been able to get to the forest either as she can’t go out until 25th a week after her final injections, but looking forward to taking her there.  Not that I would want to go out at the moment, as we have had nothing but monsoon type rain, then this morning we had hale and it was bitterly cold.  I did manage to take Harper for a good walk after the weather had decided to go back to normal.

    Well I can completely understand your lack of time. Having a puppy is like having a baby!
    Oh and I wanted to say thank you again for the pattern. I’ve picked my yarn and it will get knotted up this winter:) it’s going to be a present for my parents.
