Pepper is now 15 weeks old. She now weighs 15.6 lbs at home. We started Puppy Training on Monday afternoon. So far we are the only one in the class, but he is going to try to find a classmate (then Pepper will have someone to play with and I can learn how to get her attention even when she is playing with another puppy).
I got a deal on the training: Puppy Training is $109 for 6 weeks (1 to 1.5 hours per week). Since I have a PALS member card I got $10 off (didn’t know about that discount) AND the Entertainment Book had a $20 off coupon on any group training. So, I got $30 off the price of the training. AND it counts towards the $5 reward for every $100 spent so I just earned my next reward.
My receipt also printed out a 10% off in the month of November so I will be buying a big bag of the Blue Buffalo Chicken and Brown Rice then (right now she eats 1/2 Purina Puppy Chow and 1/2 Blue Buffalo Chicken and Brown Rice), but we will be switching fully over to the Blue Buffalo since she has definitely gained weight since she started eating it.
Pepper has been taken swimming a couple of times in lakes (actually the last time she was carried into water that was deeper than she could stand so she had to swim into shore). After the photos we gave her a bath in the metal tub on the back patio (hard to believe the weather in Northern Nevada is still warm enough for shorts in the afternoon). Pepper still doesn’t like being put in the tub since she tried to reach out and grab the sides of the tub again. Oh, well by next summer I am guessing she will love the water.
I will post these photos on the permanent page also (under About).
Later – H
