Hello Awesome doodlers:
Rosie Doodle came into her new home just two weeks ago. I am so grateful for all the help, support, suggestions and love that came in the Rosie package. You helped me out so much to prepare and make this transition as easy as possible. From picking me up at the airport, to providing food and treats (I arrived with only an empty dog carrier and water bowl), to including her smelly blue towel that reminds her of home. She is simply an amazing pup. She rings the door bells to go outside, she sits for treats, she plays fetch and she has charmed our old, grouchy, part-chow rescue dog into being her new best friend. These are all things she learned from being raised by YOU. All this goodness arrived in the little fur ball that I picked up in KY two weeks ago!!
She is also willful, crazy smart and requires a LOT of care and attention. I’m so lucky to have the enormous amount of time it takes to actually raise a responsible canine. It’s not unlike having a newborn. We have spent the last two weeks getting a perfect score from the vet, being exposed to lots of new noises and objects (she’s very sound sensitive, we play a lot of different types of music and sounds from youtube like you suggested – brilliant ). She’s enrolled in a puppy class for socialization and we are slowly exploring the environment. Yesterday we spent time splashing in the pool and she didn’t care at all, but a red mop sent her into a barking frenzy. I’m using lots of treats and trying to remember the clicking and keeping commands simple. It’s not easy speaking “dog”.
I’ll keep you updated with lots of pictures. The puppy cam and all the communication we had before picking up Rosie was a really huge plus in this process. You guys are amazing and your doodles are awesome as a result.
Thanks so much for sharing Rosie with me. She will always be an awesome doodle.
Lots of love,
