August 23 thru August 29
All of the sudden Ellie got coordinated. She runs and her legs no longer get in her way. When she chased a ball before she would trip and roll a couple times then get up. Now she doesn’t fall at all and scoops the ball up like a baseball player. Another thing is she can catch a ball thrown at her now from a short distance. A ball is now the favorite toy, hands down.
She lost all but one upper k9 tooth and all her dog teeth are now coming in. I wonder if this has something to do with the ability to catch the ball. Anyway she doesn’t let it hit her in the head any more.
We are working on her jumping. She gets so excited when people want to say hello but she starts jumping, I have to hold her and she gets frustrated.
I am still having problems with her chewing on furniture. She gets taken on a long walk every morning and we throw the ball in the afternoons. It is still too hot in the evenings to go for a walk. I thought working her puppy energy off would help things but she is still misbehaving.
Weekend brought some cooler weather and we ended it by taking a long Sunday morning walk by the river. She is doing better with the harness. She still pulls some but again the harness it helping a lot.
