Ilea was weighed today at the same time as two weeks ago when she weighed 15 pounds and 11 ounces. Today she weighed in at 21.5 pounds and still has has a youthful waist. It is obvious she has gotten taller and longer and has been getting lots of play exercise with Lisa. She goes in for her second round of inoculations this Saturday. On March 9th she has a first play date with the two most active pups in a Golden litter her age. Then on March 13, she starts a formal puppy socialization and leadership class. She is a very smart little girl who is starting to learn several fun things. She gives a running recall when I clap my hands no matter where she and Lisa are or what they are doing even if she cannot see me. She will sit and wait for her food and allows me to finger it or even remove it. I have a small black stuffed toy dog that rides on an Remote Controlled jeep. She is learning to get over her “fear” of the strange critter. Very soon we will get serious about turning her into a retriever.
Tell Allie and Funny I said “Thanks for a great pup”
