I can't believe it's only been 3 weeks. She has changed so much already, from the little splat of a squishy puppy to a nice sturdy, strong little thing. She wasn't getting enough off lead time this week for my liking (first week of walks) because although the woods are just a 5 minute run away with Gruff, with a puppy it takes a lot longer. She has also been very distressed in the car going to the vets....so today I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone. Short drive to the woods with a fun, off road, off lead walk. Pretty cautious at first: But soon curiosity got the better of her: And she was off! Tough, but still tiny. Curious: "I'm tired now!" I felt the shift today, from loving the cute puppy and knowing she depends on me, to in love with who she is. Happy days.
