Sapphires Journey

Sapphires Journey

Post by dannie_kl » 13 Apr 2010, 21:49

I thought it would be nice to loosely document Sapphire's journey from being a playful, mischievous little puppy to being ready to go into the ring hopefully at 6 months of age.
so watch this thread, hopefully you'll all be able to share our goodnews and soften the set backs along the way!

Oh wow, what a great idea, I'll be following with interest and stealing any hints and tips to use with Mo.

Ok guys here is my first update (nerd) ,
Sapphire went for her first vaccination yesterday, i think the vet has duped me and instead of being vaccinated for all she is meant to be, i think she gave her a heavy dosage of naughty serum! [laughing] as she has had the [devil] in her yesterday and today!
its funny really, somehow it feels as though Sapphire has just always been here, she has fitted right in with no bother and is a realy quick learner! she has already taken herself outside for a toilet twice! Freya seems to have copped it where sapphire is concerned, she really wants to play rough and bites her quite hard at times. So far Freya has been extremeley tolerant and barely even grumbles about it! but at the end of the day yesterday being nanny to sapphire Freya was just pooped!
Image
i gave Freya and Kolo a bit of a break from the little monster by putting her in her crate with her first Kong which contained roast chicken and tinned puppy meat
Image
I am pleased to report Sapphire did eventually calm down yesterday and after her last meal she settled down (in various places) and in the end drifted off to the land of nod.
Image
Image

Image
Sapphire had her nails trimmed today and tomorrow i shall begin scraping her coat, i haven't done this so far as i wanted her to settle in and then obviously where she had her injection it may have been a tad sore so give it a couple of days to calm down and tomorrow we shall begin the work.

Thanks for reading everyone (read)

I LOVE that she chose to sleep right next to a bum! Nana Freya sounds very fitting - what a good girl for taking all that nibbling. Sapphire is such a pretty puppy, I'm really jealous about coat!

beth nibbling is no where near the truth, she really lays into freya and i am waiting for freya to tell her off because thats the best way for her to learn but freya is such a sweetie she just puts up with the majority of it!

Trust me, I know waht you mean, Maisy is a TERROR to Freddy and at first he really didn't play back, but now he's just as bad to her and they play like that CONSTANTLY. It's so lovely when older dogs take on that gentle role with a new puppy - Sapphire definately fits in well with your pack!

LOL right under Kolo's bum! Bless good old Freya aswell she could fall asleep on the edge of a pinhead I bet! If I ever get a puppy I might have a word with the vet beforehand to double the naughty serum just to wind Ralphy RIGHT up muahahaha. I'm glad she's using her bed too, it makes her look so teensy, that will be a good thing to use to do a collage of her growth in a years time! x
