Mika photo update – 6 months

I can’t believe Mika is six months already! She is 45lbs and it’s getting to the point where I don’t think I’ll be able to carry her on the stairs much longer!

She has been such a wonderful addition to our family. She is doing obedience training now (in very short sessions to keep it fun) she loves it and gets lots of kibble ūüôā I have been hand feeding her every day since she was 8 weeks, it’s been really fascinating to watch how much that has paid off! I love taking pictures and we’ve had tons of snow lately which made for a perfect setting, here are some recent ones of Mika.

Mika is from the M litter – Tenno and Juno. Her registered name is Alta-Tollhaus Michigan. Her half brother is Steve and he lives with us as well (U litter Hunter x Juno Alta-Tollhaus Ulfr)

Mika’s 1st show – 15 weeks old

Mika was entered in OG Idaho’s Fall show, she was awarded VP2 by Judge¬†Helmut Koenig. Though she was the youngest puppy, she performed very well in the ring.

It was a crazy day, we left the house at midnight, drove 8 hours to the show, stayed for 2 hours and then drove home. Thank goodness for coffee! Such good experience for Mika; she got the hang of it really quick. We are hoping to attend the NW regional show this weekend.

Mika’s board and train

 

Update on Mika (Alta-Tollhaus Michigan) Mika is now ten weeks old and weighs 15lbs. We love her so much. She truly is a wonderful puppy. We do a lot of little training sessions throughout the day, and Mika has been working for most of her food. She LOVES playing ball and chasing her toys around! The following pictures are from the week we went out of town and boarded her with our friends at Valor k9 in Spokane. The following photos are all taken by Valor k9 Academy, captions as well. See their Facebook or Instagram for more.
