10 Things I’ve Learned From A 8 Week Old Sheepdog Puppy…

Mollie our new and adorable Border Collie puppy is definitely keeping me on my toes. 

We have only had her a few days, yet it already feels like she has lived here a lot longer. 

How clever are Border Collies!?! First day we had a few toilet accidents in the house then on only day 2 she started whining to be taken outside! Maybe because we bought her from a farmer and was used to being outside? (The Vet said farm puppies are easier to toilet train.)

10 Things I’ve Learned From A 8 Week Old Sheepdog Puppy:

  • There is more than one 2 o’clock in a day. {Yep and two 4 o’clocks and even two 6 o’clocks}. Saying this I got 7 hours sleep last night!!
  • You can fall in puppy love and care so much for something you have only had a few days. {She is so sweet everyone loves her, who sees her.}.
  • Running around the garden in your PJs in the middle of the night can be fun!  {Trying to tire her out for a few more hours sleep}.
  • Everytime you speak to your puppy the words that come out sound like baby talk. {Good girl!! goo goo}. 
  • A Border Collie can learn something straight away. {Day 2 whining to do her business, amazing!! still a few wee accidents though}.
  • How quickly an 8 week old can be toilet trained. {Read no.5, hehe}.
  • A puppy makes a good foot warmer. {Just stand in the same place for more than a few minutes e.g washing the pots and she comes and lays on them!}.
  • You should never leave your shoes around. {The laces must be so tempting to chew on}.
  • Every smell that is made in the house the can now be blamed on the dog!  {Boy can she trump!!}.
  • She grows in confidence every day. {Day one she just sat quietly, now nobody’s feet are safe!!}.

    She's gorgeous!! Reminds me of my little doggie when she was a puppy, I still see her as a puppy. :)If you have a problem with chewing, try to find Bob Martin 'Chew Stop'; you just spray it and it works. They sell it in Asda and probably pet shops too. Once we got her a flavoured rawhide bone to chew on she was happy to leave the furniture alone, she needed lots of toys and chewy things but she was very happy and it was co cute to see this tiny puppy trying to carry them around! xxBobbyannePromisingBeauty.blogspot

    She's beautiful! Aren't puppies/dogs the best? If we could all be a little more like our fur babies the world would be a better place. :)Debbiewww.fashionfairydust.com

    I love puppies. They are similar to babies in some ways (2 a.m. is no big deal to puppies either lol). Great that your family has a new member:)
