Well it seemed like it took for ever but i picked Java up from Broadford on Monday!
Jaz from Hillcrest WorkingDogs looked after her over night and she was totally relaxed and full of beans, she had another pup with her from the Minnie litter and also beautiful Charm who was another Bauers Border Collie pup from Lucy. So Java had another 1 1/2 hour trip, to do until we got back to Glen Waverley. The good thing.. she doesnt get car sick! (yet!)
She was so full of energy when we got home and really confident which is fantastic! She strutted around like she owned the place. Mark and her played for most of the afternoon and then Robyn, Jacko, Morgan and Logan came over. It was great to see how excited she was to play with the kids, again really confident and just wanted to play ... however, she was a little rough with those pin sharp teeth! :-)
We had been working on her dog run during the week so she can sleep in the laundry and has a dog door going outside into her run. The first night it was getting a little late and i thought i would introduce her to the dog door quickly, not really expecting her to use it. When i woke up in the morning i was waiting for a disaster... (oh did i mention her record is peeing 5 times and one poop in 15 minutes? How the hell can you keep up wiht that?) i looked around and nothing! Perhaps all the accidents we had in the house was all she had left? I went outside to put her on the lawn only to find that she had indeed figured out how to use the doggie door! Unbelievable! I was so happy i didnt wake up to a mess inside!
Tuesday we played all day. I put Java on a lead and took her out the front yard so she could get used to a lead and check out the surroundings. She was so intreged by the cars. Bit scared but after around 20min she was feeling quiet ok with the whole thing. Then i had a visitor come. I put Java back in her run and sat and had a coffee and a chat. Then there was a knock at the door. I thought it was a sales man so hesitated to answer it. Thank god i did.... Continue reading
