I finally have a moment to sit and write about the latest Keira shenanigans. We just returned from the Teenage Boy’s first soccer game, which was Keira’s first time going somewhere with lots of sights and sounds. So far she associates car rides with trips to the vet, so I’m trying to make the car experience a positive one so she can go with us to as many places as possible.
As a new dog person, I’m quickly learning:
Bully sticks. Keira loves them. They are the ultimate treat when we need to leave her at home in the crate and they provide a good positive distraction for car rides.
The vet. Keira’s last visit started off full of curiosity and exploration. Then the vet walked in and she peed everywhere. I guess I don’t blame her. However, at 26 pounds, three of us had to assist in keeping her calm during her quick exam. I’m not sure how she will be when she doubles in size because now she seems huge to me.
Carrots and apples are the bomb. No more accidents in the house. She earns her treats well.
Kiddos. She loves them. Especially the Tween, who can play silly little games with her for what seems like hours. Keira is extra tired when the Tween is able to spend extra time with her.
Puppy kindergarten starts on Thursday. I have a feeling she is going to be one of the big kids.
