My Zoey Girl: A Pup Update

So we got Zoey a little over two months ago,  and I can't even image what life was life before her. 

Remember when I announced her arrival, here?

She's learning so much, and ALWAYS testing our patience. 
She's found her voice, in both whine and bark form, and is learning new ways to be 'in control' every day.  

She makes me smile.  And to hear her padded footsteps swaggering excitedly across the wood floor to greet and kiss me when I get home is just adorable. 

Zoey is a dramatic dog (image that) who can over exaggerate ANYTHING.
She's and adorable puppy that makes the cutest grunting noises when getting up the in morning or waking up for her 18th nap of the day.

She's ALMOST potty trained .... Wahoo. (Note: To all future puppy owners, wood floors will save your life with this endeavour)

Granted I still get the occasional look (that if Dogs could talk would say) Mom I'm really sorry, I just couldn't hold it, and I was having so much that I didn't want to bother you and make you get up and open the back door.

But it's okay, because all in all she is pretty darned good.  

Well here is how much she has grown since she joined completed our family:


This is her today. See those marks on her face.  That's her dramatic side coming out: She hates her gentle leader soooo much she scratched at it until she made herself bleed.  It made me feel like a bad parent, but the trainer said they'll go away soon.  She also said she's never seen a dog do that...Awesome, Our dog is a one of a kind!!!
