I’d like to formally introduce Shalako’s Primrose of Zydeco, better known as Prim. She is my new puppeh!
She is an Australian Shepherd bred by the lovely Andrea Torres and Shelly Hollen. She was born November 27, 2010, which will make her 9 weeks old tomorrow.
She came home late on Wednesday night, and I’m already exhausted. She isn’t a bad puppy – she settles quickly in her crate, plays with her toys, and is easy to redirect when she is getting into something she isn’t supposed to – I’m just trying to get used to watching her all the time and losing sleep for night time potty breaks.
But I can’t complain too much. She is so poofy and adorable! We’ve have fun wrestling and tugging in the living room, and I’ve even attempted some clicker training but I’m not too good at it yet.
Right now my main concern is socialization. I’m trying to get her out to different places and meet new people. Two girls from work are coming over today during lunch to meet her, and Stephanie is coming by after work. She is making so many new friends!
On a slightly different note, I decided a while ago that I wanted to attempt a 365 project. That means I have to take one picture a day for a whole year. My aunt DeeAnn has already started one, and she is doing really well! I want mine to be 365 days of Prim, so we will see how long it lasts. I almost forgot to take one yesterday (day 2!) and ended up with a blurry tongue pic. The rules are – take one picture a day, upload a least once a week (we can be lax on this rule), the picture must be Prim related, anddd I can take it with whatever camera I have at my disposal. Some days I will probably take more than one picture – but I’ll pick one to be the picture for that day.
