Last (probably) photoshoot

Well plans have changed. Janda’s family is finishing their remodel early so they can take little J back on Wednesday or Thursday. I’m so sad. I’ll miss her so much and was looking forward to taking her to church next Sunday…there were a few families who never got to meet her. *sigh* The plus side is that I’ll have 3 days of puppy-less-ness where I can do what I want–before I start work. But we took a few pictures of Little Bean yesterday and some of them actually turned out well!!



“Knowing a goodbye is coming does not make that goodbye any easier.”









Only one week left until she leaves.








I’ll miss her. But she’s been fiesty recently. Still the loving girl she’s always been, but I’ve been busy and she gets into trouble when she’s bored. Typical of a puppy, but still annoying. I’m going to try to get a good photo with the pink flower…but no one’s here right now to help me. Have to wait till tomorrow.

Missing in Action

She’s gone! Well until later today, actually. Janda’s raisers took her for a few days and man do I ever miss her!! But it is kind of nice to have more freedom for a few days…be able to be gone all day and not have to worry about if an outing is “puppy appropriate” or not.

On Sunday we went to church with a friend since my family was sick, and Janda was working very hard.



 Just kidding…








Today we had our weekly meeting with one our puppy club leaders, and Janda’s raiser. Here’s how it went down…

Leader: What are Janda’s problems?

Me: …..

Leader: And don’t say there aren’t any because no puppy is perfect 🙂

Me: She….doesn’t like pooping on cement because she was allowed to go on grass once. …….and she’s a little whiney but that’s what we’re working on right now, and the whining on tie-down has almost completely stopped.

End of story.


We like her.



“Go To Bed”

Something I should do ;D

Here’s Janda practicing outside today.
















Kennel Training

Today we did a little work in the outdoor kennel.IMG_5418None of my puppies have ever liked their kennel. Ever. Janda’s a new puppy and a new opportunity to get it right. So in addition to everything else, we’re condintioning kennel time very slowly.

Today I went out and sat with her in the kennel for a few minutes while she explored.





For perspective as to how small she really is, I took a picture of her zoomed out so you can see the whole kennel….and then IMG_5421


wee little her.

Official Photo Shoot


I took some cute pictures yesterday. She’s adorable. And I like her. Today we worked some more on “come” and she’ll come from anywhere in the house!! It’s great. She also gets that when she steps on the mat and hears “nice” that she gets food. So now we’re moving on to step 2 🙂 I’m also starting to really work on “sit” but instead of putting her in a sit and giving the command, we’re doing that AND when she sits on her own, we also give the command. We’ll see if it helps. Oh, and she knows her name 🙂 AND she knows that she’s supposed sit whenever people pet her. Like I said, I love this dog. She’s super smart.IMG_5401
