Welcome Home Week with Lucy!!!

This week we kicked things off with our BRAND NEW PUPPY — LUCY!!! Not sure if I can pull off a weekly update ~that seems crazy right?! LOL but honestly this week has felt like A MONTH –in the best way possible! SO much has happened!! When you’re busy all DAY & NIGHT it’s AMAZING what all you can do!

I don’t want to forget anything… she is a completely different dog everyday?! Every day she learns something new & does something different, she is very smart & picks up on things so quickly! I wish I had a picture or video of her every move haha, I had no idea how quickly she would change & improve! She’s growing up so quickly and it is the sweetest thing I’ve ever been a part of 🙂

MONDAY this week was our first day together! Our new puppy was so so sweet but very timid & curious… on Monday / Day 1 our baby puppy:

  • looked so small in her play pen & she had no idea there was even a doggy door on the side she could walk through any minute lol we didn’t even lock it
  • didn’t know what stairs were & they looked so ominous
  • ran away full speed from any noise or barking dog
  • was TERRIFIED of the TV (cowered behind Dillon when it played)
  • could barely handle a leash
  • jumped a mile at the sound of her squeaky toys
  • she played all day & didn’t take 1 nap… not our best schedule, but we improved!

By SUNDAY of this week, only a few short days later… our GROWN puppy is wild & bold trying ALL the things!!!!

  • she can walk up 1 flight of stairs
  • is no longer phased by the TV and enjoyed watching a basketball & football game
  • runs towards her squeaky toys -not away!
  • plays fetch with the tennis ball, so well!! & has the best gallop, trot, pounce when running after them
  • is so excited by her own reflection any where she sees it (mirror, dishwasher, stove)
  • did well meeting dogs, but is still skittish with the deep barkers
  • she is doing well with her blue (retractable) & pink (short, rubber) leash!
  • she charges through her doggy door now & can even make it through with a toy in her mouth (this took lots of practice)

New tricks this week, that she is getting really good at include:

  • Recognizing her name: LUCY!
  • SIT
  • DOWN
  • BREAK
  • COME
  • LEAVE IT
  • PLACE

Dillon doesn’t let a spare moment go to waste when it comes to training & he has perfected his “puppy voice” lol it’s the only way she listens!! the higher the pitch the happier she is! I love watching them work together.

This week she met so many family members! She enjoyed playing with- Devon, Lucas, Jeff, Suzy, Jill, Larry, Carson, Carter, Noelle, Olivia, Grandma & Paw Paw 🙂

Her new dog friends are: Cooper & Reagan!

SNACKS! Lucy is all about the snacks… she has tried so many new foods this week! Favorites include:

  • Bananas
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Peanut butter
  • Carrots
  • ice cubes

TOYS! We have been switching them around to keep her interested, so far her favorites are:

….. aaaaanndddd she’s OFF!

only a few accidents inside & a couple of whiny nights later she is really getting the hang of her schedule & her crate, I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us next week!
