Fiona- 15wks

The puppy turned 15wks old and is a tiny 18lbs.  She's growing on me though. I especially love her Up skills.  Meal times are becoming quite the specatcle.  While the toller is often sleeping in the bedroom, the corgi and lab both start spinning in circles when I walk out with their food bowls.  

Vito still isn't in love with her but they coexist nicely.  Mostly he's up on the furniture so Fi doesn't have an opportunity to bother him. She takes full advantage of the car rides to snuggle with him and he doesn't put up a fight.
Vito's in a tight tank in my attempt to imitate a thunder shirt.
All 3 in the truck.
The corgi loves her.  Except when she steals his kennel, which is practically every evening.
Training wise, we are starting to get our verbal positions of heel very well and side is almost there.  I am also setting out to actually teach her front as I completely failed in teaching Chuckles it.  In his confusion Chuck would just dance his body around back and forth from heel to side unless I cued wait in the right spot.  We are also working on getting a stand.  Fi can transition between sit, down, and stand with about 75% accuracy when her front feet are on a book, but is still clueless off the book.  And my biggest accomplishment has been getting Fi to switch from food to toys in the same session.  She still isn't always eager about the toy when it first comes out, but will play with me fairly quickly now and with less effort on my part.

She is doing so awesome! I love her enthusiasm. I laughed out loud when she did go to bed and slid halfway across the room. And her play dead is adorable with the million mile an hour tail. :D Too cute!

I didn't realize we shared a birthday. Happy Birthday! I hope you had a great one.
