Pupdate – Zeus 6 Months Old

Zeus6Mo2.jpg

Zeus, our German Shepherd puppy, is growing soooo fast.  He’s just about 6 months and lost the last of his needle sharp baby teeth yesterday – we’re all thrilled about that as he is so much calmer now that the pain of cutting teeth is over.

Zeus was pretty fiery as a little guy but is becoming such a sweetie – look at that face!  I am enjoying the heck out of him.  We take lots of long walks to burn off energy and do many training bouts throughout the day.  He’s a super fast learner and so fun to work with.

It’s not all fun and games – he’s not a huge fan of other dogs and wants to chase anything that moves.  He has pretty strong prey drive.  So I go out everyday and look for situations that might set him off (not hard to find) and work at a distance to desensitize him.  He has great focus and it goes pretty well most of the time.  But when he does erupt, I collect him up, shake it off, and try again.  We always end on a good note and I come away feeling so grateful for my training buddy.

That’s my pupdate.  All the best to you and yours,

BostonTerrierCrmSugrWood

This month I will be giving away a dog breed sugar bowl and dog breed creamer.  These pieces are really cute and can be used for their intended purposes but are also great in other areas of your home.  You can use the sugar bowl for cotton balls and the creamer for q-tips to keep these things handy on your bathroom counter.  The creamer also makes a cute little vase for a small bouquet of flowers.  Or, gift them to the dog lover in your life.  The winner will be able to choose their favorite breed from over 40 of my dog breed designs.

Pupdate – Zeus 4 1/2 Months

Zeus-Sequoia-Park

Zeus, our German Shepherd puppy, is now 4 and a half months old and in two puppy classes.  He needs a lot of socialization around other dogs.  So besides the puppy classes, I get him out a couple times a day where he can see dogs.  Our favorite place is Sequoia Park, where they filmed a portion of the upcoming movie “A Wrinkle in Time”.  I’m excited to see how they used the park in the movie.  Anyway, we walk and jog under the giant trees, though today and yesterday we had a jump a couple smaller ones blown down in a wind storm.  We always run into dogs and people taking their morning stroll.  Great way to start the day.

 

 

Upcoming – Miniature Pinscher Design

I’ve been wanting to add Miniature Pinschers for a while but when I got a request through the Shepherds Grove Website, I knew it was time.  And now that I’ve put this out to the Universe and written it here, the work will get done.

If you’re a Minpin lover, I highly recommend you take a look at @verpinscht on Instagram.  They’re out of Germany and the pictures are inspired.

I’m shooting for finishing the Minpin design by mid March.  It’s not that the design will take me that long, but there’s a bunch of other pottery related tasks to accomplish at the same time.  But the excitement of adding a new design is very motivating because I can already imagine a Miniature Pinscher staring back at me from one of my dog breed mugs.

Take care,
