Yeah, we thought she would like a shoe to chew on, ....it squeaks.
Yeah we are gonna keep her in a little travel carrier tonight and a couple nights, then move her to the garage at night.
We will definetly keep her outside during the day, and eventually she will live outside.
I have a pretty nice big, chicken house and fenced pen for her , eventually at night.
I have a 100' nylon rope for a runner for my dog which I used when he was still a pup. I had to fix my swing gate so I could latch it shut. Dang dog learned how to open it from watching me I guess and down the road he would go.
We have an apple head chihuahua and I wouldn't be without her. She is my constant buddy and companion. She sleeps with me at night and at one time I swore I had slept cuz when I was single, I had enough animals in my bed and they would leave by morning. Her name is Dolly but I call her "Little Monster" since she was little and she answers to me. If anything ever happens to my Little Monster, I would go nuts. When we go to car shows, cold weather, she gets inside my vest and I carry her around and we have stroller too. But she is a house dog cuz the heat would kill her. (115 degrees today). Glad to see you have another addition and all the joy that goes with it. Good luck!
I would build a lean to against the safe shed. Put a runner rope from lean to to the tree and leash long enough but short enough that she can't get wrapped around the fence. Put a stop on the rope so she can't get wrapped around the tree. She will be a happy camper able to run and look around and be shaded and protected from the rain.
Well, if you look at the first picture,
from the rear corner of shed to that tree, will be a flower/shrub garden(trianle) up to where the gravel is, thats for ease of mowing,everywhere thres gravel will be a deck.
Good idea Buster but you didnt know my plans.
I will eventually move her kennel house , for that reason.
Once she is really settled in , I will probly let her run free in the day, and lock her in at night.
Too many coyotes ,
I may just lay a piece of metal on , bigger that the kennel, to protect her bed and food from rain.
She was going in and out of it today , so she is learning.
Went out this morning while its cool, and decide to trim up some low limbs on a couple trees in the backyard.
Of course the pup is with me, and running around playing,
I stared picking up all the trimmings (mostly 1" dia), I gotta walk about 30-40 feet to throw them in a pile,
I noticed that she was grabbing the end of the limbs and shaking them, so, I started playing tug of war with her and running her around in circles, she only weighs about 6 lb.
So i decide to let her have one , figgered she would just lay down and chew on it,
She threw her head up, and dragged it to the pile and laid it on the pile.
I couldnt believe it , so I hauled a couple more over, then played with her again, and let her have it, she did the same thing , dragged it over and laid it on the pile, she did that 4-5 times. Now thats cool .
Then I looked over and she was underneath the pile rambling around.
I hope thats a good sign.
Anyways its fun watchin her.
btw, I forgot , I did pop off a few .22 rnds, , she just set there and looked at , then backed off about 10 ft, and watched...
