She's getting so big and she is such a good puppy. I really enjoy having her around. She is rarely peeing in her crate (a problem she acquired due to her urinary tract infection, etc.) and she slept all night last night. Honestly, I don't think she's ready to be sleeping all night without being let out, but I didn't wake up in the middle of the night on my own like I usually do. What can I say, she's been great. Not chasing Alex around to bite him, not biting us as much, but still chasing and biting Lola. She and Sam get along very well and like to play alot during the day. She likes her neighbor dog, Sampson, a boxer who is 8 months old. They play well together.
She starts her first training class in 2 days. She'll learn basic commands and socialization, but she really has the commands down now even before her class. It'll be easy for her!

Sam and Faith, for a moment, getting along in the pictures. Most of the time Sam avoids her, which is fine, but then break out a treat, he's all over taking hers away. It's exhausting. Trying to balance my time between the animals and my son is very hard. I never want Alex to think I like the animals more. Faith just needs attention obviously. Have to watch her every move when she's not in the crate. But, it is what it is, and he'll have to deal with it. I keep telling him that when she's bigger, she'll be better and she'll protect us and our home. He really doesn't care. He says he doesn't like her. But I think he will eventually. She's been outside getting in lots of walks and playtime at the dog park. Sometimes she gets tired afterward, sometimes she doesn't :(

In two weeks, she has her appointment to be spayed. That will be nice to have it done and over with early. So within the next few weeks, we will get her into training, have her spayed, finish her vaccinations and maybe start to train her on the invisible fence.
She's a ton of work and most times I feel like I'll lose my mind, but I have to remind myself that it won't last forever.

She is now 10 weeks old and her ears are starting to stand. We have found out that she has some medical issues which makes it a little hard to potty train her. She has crystals in her urine which are causing some more peeing than usual! We'll find out next week what exactly has caused this and can hopefully start treatment for it then.
