Thanks, guys! Her little personality is starting to come out...and she's s stinker! She does the usual puppy stuff, like runs off with the paper towels while I try to clean up her accidents or immeidately tears into the foam while I try to make their little makeshift beds...
She's also starting to show a little resources guarding, particularly against the other dogs, so we're keeping allt he toys and whatnot up and regulated and I'll start working with her on some of that. She's taken to the clicker like a champ, so hopefully, she'll start to get the picture!
River is really very unhappy that she's there, and it's only because the little one wants to play and River doesn't; and when Robin and Luna go wrestling and tearing through the house, they don't pay attention to where River is, so we're working on managing that, too. So far, if River gets put into the position to correct Luna, Luna pancakes and stays out of her way. The little one needs to learn doggie boundaries, and by the same token, we have to make sure nobody gets pushed to their limits. When she sits politely, she and River can hang out side by side and get treats.
Puppies are cute-- but they're tough... and she's smart, so she's gonna be a handful.
