Pebbles – Blue Merle w/White AussieDoodle
Congrats to: Ron and family from Fort Wayne, Indiana on this Girl
"Pebbles is just over 20 pounds at 16 weeks. Hopefully, the rate of weight gain slows and she ends in that 35 to 45 pound range. She is now sleeping later, 9 to 7 as opposed to 9 to 4 or 5. She has been excellent in her nighttime crate, with any accidents from day one! She understands poops go outside, occasionally in the pine pellet tray, but peeing in the house is still a problem (luckily we have hard surface flooring and not carpet). We occasionally put her in her daytime crate and go out for short periods and she does great and just quietly naps.
She likes to chew on a small squeaky toy. Sometimes we’ll throw it and she has learned to bring it back and drop it for a treat. Another favorite is knocking around an empty 1 litter soda bottle. She’ll run into it a bump it around, trying and trying to get ahold of it.
For socialization we often bring her to several of the stores that are pet friendly. We get her together occasionally with dogs we know. We are also looking forward for her 4th shot next week so we can broaden exposure.
She is very smart and picks up on things like sitting and waiting. Except when she’s overly excited or has the zoomies. We have two food puzzle games that she likes. She also has a ball that treats drop out of that didn’t take long for her to figure out about rolling it around."
