    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. :)

    Obviously I'm biased, but she really is! :D Cheeky, but always checking in with me to make sure all is well, and so keen on training sessions, wherever they are. It was lovely to see her little ears flapping while she charged along today. :D

    She really is just gorgeous; such a strong, robust looking tiny thing :001_wub:. I know what you mean by "the shift" as well, it's a truly lovely moment.

    She is lovely so keen, but I especially love her little bum/tail splodge, looks like the glue leaked out the sides. :D

    I love that splodge too....it's not weird to blow raspberries on your puppy's bum is it...? :D

    She had a lot of fun on today's walk.....this one's going to be trouble! Saw a couple of mountain bikers, charged after them, I told them I was going to run away to get her to follow me, and she completely ignored me! :eek:
    Her new found best friend picked her up for me, and of course she was delighted by the whole thing. :eek:
    So, on the one hand, they didn't mind being chased because she's so cute and little, on the other hand they were so pleased to see her she's had the behaviour reinforced already. This will need some work. :rolleyes:

    And a top tip for all the single ladies who like sporty chaps - get out into the great outdoors with a cute, naughty puppy - I was stopped so many times today by mountain bikers wanting to fuss Little Miss Naughty!

    Awweh what a beautiful little pupster :D

    My smallest goes for her last set of jabs on Monday *they were delayed by 2 weeks as she was super teeny* and she will be 12 weeks tomorrow. Im still not feeling the 'shift' but im sure it will come as soon as we can get out properly. I literally do everything for her but she doesnt seem to like nor want anything to do with me :( but if its my husband or little boy she is all over them. Hope she grows out of it because she is such a little character :crying:

    It will come....maybe it's related to you doing everything for her? Gruff used to go crazy for me when I got home from work, I was sort of "daddy" who was very exciting because he didn't see me all day. :)

    Possibly, or I am just boring :eek: maybe when we can get out for good proper walks together she will look to me more. We are just doing lead work in the garden at the moment but she just gets excited and distracted by anything and everything hehe.

    She's gorgeous! :001_wub: xx

    It's wonderful to see them changing and developing isn't it?!

    I remember so well watching this little black bundle of fluff totter about on his lead on his first few walkies wondering if he'd ever be a proper dog lol. Now, watching him today fly round the fields like a whippet on speed you can hardly believe he was ever that small!! :p

    Enjoy her - she still very much has that cute puppy face and look, bless her.

    And lol at the mountain bikers!! ;)
