So we brought Lexi home when she was 9 weeks old, it has been almost 3 months and she is 5 months old now. It has been a steep learning curve but it had it’s funny, lovely moments too.
We have had quite a journey with her, medically. She has had a very serious bacterial ear infection, which took 3 weeks of treatment to clear up, immediately following that she had an eye irritation/infection, which saw her in the cone for a week. All that set her back on her vaccination schedule which means we start all over again with the vaccinations. Now it seems she has caught a cold 😦
But on the upside, we finished puppy school and are now in young dog school and it’s going good. She does not do as she is supposed to at class, but at home, it works fine and that’s the important part.
Other than that, we have found out that she is definitely NOT a food-motivated dog. She does not even come when you put down her food, except when she was on the cortisone for 3 weeks and the meds made her hungry.
She is teething now and with a slight cold, i suppose going off food for a bit is usual. i just wished it was not such a struggle to get her to eat regularly. It’s a question we will have to ask the vet when we go for the next jab in a couple of weeks.
Another positive is that i think (fingers-crossed) we got the pee situation down, she only goes outside now. And she is doing better with being left for a couple hours at home, when needed.
Despite the various worries, the joys of having her around is wonderful! She is a sweet-pea and we love her!
