New Parker (puppy)

#1 Post by GunnyMack » Tue Oct 24, 2017 8:53 am

Hip hip hooray- I got a full nights sleep last night!
I still have 2 other pups here until they are picked up this weekend. So I'm not crate training Parker yet.
Still a little mess in the box over night but the pups are really picking up on house breaking!

Parker is showing great retrieving instinct, she will bring me a ball/toy multiple times, or until she gets sidetracked! Also showing a good nose! Very pleased so far.

I took Parker out for her first solo truck ride the other day, pooped in the crate with in a half mile. Then she found a few cookie bits at the pet store causing her to puke on the way home... At least she didn't puke in my lap!

I'm still waiting for the breeder to pick up his pup, his son just had knee surgery so I'm puppy sitting. Also have the only boy in the litter here, his person has been flat on his back in bed with bronchitis.
I'm doing my best as far as house breaking...seems like Parker is really getting it! I ring the bell and they run to go outside, only Parker takes it seriously, I keep telling the other two it's not play time but potty time, they still pee & poop in the house more than out. Parker grabs a toy as soon as she is done going potty and prances to me with her head & tail high- So proud of herself! Good girl!

What a little sweetie. Can't wait until I am in a position to get a pup -- hopefully in the new year. I hate being dogless. It just "ain't right."

We still have 2 terriers and 1 miniature Chihuahua. I want another big dog, but PillHer is not ready yet. The 3 little ones are inside dogs, and PillHer just adores the Rat Terrier puppy. He is overflowing with energy and mischief. With his jumping and leaping ability, I keep trying to get PillHer to get him into agility training. Those contests look fun, and he already plays the way that most of the courses are set up. The other two dogs are a little older and just can't keep up with his puppy enthusiasm for life.

I forgot to put my earplugs in last night, they woke me about 0430. Of course the big dogs were up as well so I had to get out of bed and let them out. Good news!- no poop in the box!!

Today I deliver a pup to the breeder, I'm not real happy about one of my pups becoming a brood b*tch but those were the terms. I really wanted to get the Fox Red color into my line( Rex the stud)
image.jpeg
Anyway by about 0500 this morning Parker, Black Cloud THUNDER ( the boy pup){ he leaves tomorrow} and "Pinky' were tear- a$&ing around the kitchen like a bunch of sugared up kids. Barking biting jumping & pouncing- I was laughing the whole time! Such fun!

Bill, my condolences for being dog poor! I'm not sure I could be without at least 1 K9 getting under foot!

Ok, Parker survived her first night in a crate. Although I'm NOT used to being awake until midnight! Now I have a better idea of what time she needs to poop, MIDNIGHT! Thankfully no accident in the crate.

Boy oh boy the noises that come from a puppy in a crate, I bet all the coyotes in my area were listening to her! Whining to howling to crying to a pack of beagles chasing a rabbit all came from my little 15 lb Labrador!

Oh, have I mentioned she likes food? Very typical lab appetite, tail wags the whole time her face is in her dish.

Fetch is getting better too, last night she made 10 or 12 retrieves in a row before she lost focus!

Well, my plan last night came back to bite me in the butt!
Parker has been crashing about 8 pm so at 9 I took her out, of course it rained a good 3&1/2" yesterday so her potty training was interrupted. So I decided that I would put her on the bed with me with the hope she would wake me if & when she had to potty....WRONG! She did however wake me about 1:30 AFTER she pooped twice and peed on Claro's bed...

Guess I have to be more insistent that she stays in her crate!

Patience, Patience, Patience :mrgreen:

My current dogs were the worst ever to train. Now they explode before they go in the house. Of course it took several packing their noses with the stuff to get the point across.
It already sounds like yours are way ahead of the curve that my breed was on.

It is amazing how hard it is to get a small dogs nose into something they don't want it in .

Yeah, I also learned the hard way to be staunch about the crate until things were really firmed up on going outside. Not any worse than cleaning up diaper mess.

Had a much better night!
We accomplished a poop outside before bed at 9 pm, let her have a piece of elk rawhide in her crate to keep her occupied. A few whimpers around 11:30- out to pee. Then again around 2:30. Then found Mommy had lifted her rawhide from the crate! Sneaky mommy... Then we slept until 6 !!

Another poop free night! Seems like 5 hours sleep before her bladder kicks in.
Had her 9 week shots Monday, seems she has a touch of GIARDIA, antibiotics for treatment, no biggie as most puppies get it/have it. Part of being a little person.

She is really picking up on retrieving, always picking up and carrying sticks. Just need to walk around with my camera ready! Starting to figure out her name too.

Was up at 1:30 am for a tinkle, back to the crate and Zzzzz's until about 4:30. Outside and all is well.

She is getting better by the minute about leash walking as well.

So I sent an old friend an email, MY NEW PARKER, included a couple pics of her. He replied Beautiful. I replied the blueing is so dark you can't see the engraving !

Gunny,
We really enjoyed your pics here in Sixgun Land. :D

Your layout is just like ours here...hardwood floors and covers on the furniture.

I have always been suspicious of people who refuse to have animals in the house. Around here I have to move dogs in order to sit down.....or sleep.....------6

Six we are on the same page for sure!
Now I am in NO WAY a cat person, would never allow one in the house but I'd have a house full of dogs any day of the week!

If someone shows up here and they aren't a dog person my girls know it! They will just keep pestering that person until I tell them to just pet the dogs and they'll leave you alone- like magic & works every time!

Not sure if it's the time change or what but we slept through the night! Well from 9:00- 4:30 anyway, and I'll take it!
She really REALLY had pee this morning.

A quarter for scale.

Claro is starting to bond with Parker, find them snoozing together more.

Only time there is an issue is when Parker latches onto Claro's favorite dummy( no not me) then a gentle tug of war and some growling!

Still sleeping through the night- THANKFULLY!!
Parker is getting the whole go outside to potty idea but still have the occasional accident, but that's my fault...
Had her to the vet the other day just to visit, I've made it a point to visit often just so the staff can spoil her some and then it's never traumatic to go there! She was 19.2 lbs. now if she would stop getting car sick!

My dogs like going to the Vet. The secretary loves animals and is always handy with vitamins for whatever you bring in, be it a dog, cat, sugar glider, rabbit, or what have you. My dogs love getting the liver flavor vitamins for dogs. They are like a kid with a piece of candy.

19.2 lbs and growing is a pretty decent size for Parker's age. Sounds as if she will be a normal size adult soon enough. Lots of play and a whole bunch of food between now and then.

I let Parker have another bird today, actually picked it up and carried it with no problems! Then she started pulling feathers off one mouth full at a time!! I'm going to start hiding some wings around the yard and see just how good her nose is.

No rhyme or reason, up this morning at 0330- out the door and she tinkled a little. Most nights we get through the night... I'm starting to think Mommy (Winnie) is waking her up so I get out of bed and when I get back Win is in my spot! Conspiracy me thinks!
Otherwise we are doing good, chewing the furniture, leaving land mines on the floor, occasionally. Yesterday Parker chewed a hole in the end of a retrieving dummy, as they kept playing with it the rubber/ walnut hull stuffing was scattered around the kitchen. So had to vacuum the girls as well as the floor.

I have one dog who will bark to go out about 5:30, and when I let him back in afterwards, he runs in and jumps on the bed and lays down right where I was sleeping. He even puts his head on the pillow. He closes his eyes and pretends to be asleep.

About every 3 days she wakes me around 2:30 am, out the door and WE have a tinkle! This morning she took an odumbo too! :D
She is in a crate all night but when she goes out instead of her caring on in the crate I put her in bed, she flops down & goes right to sleep.
When I woke at 5:30 she pounced on me and smacked my right in my left eye!

3 days in a row she has had me up! Last night was 11:30, then 1:30 and 4:00!!! Did everything she should do when waking me up- OUTSIDE to tinkle and dumocrat . But geeze puppy do we really have to get up 3 times!?

Otherwise, Parker is doing very well! Walks nice on a leash, comes when called ( 99% of the time) goes up the stairs like a pro, still working on the down, and she is getting into as much trouble as a puppy should.

Parker had a bath today! Not real happy about that but I tried to make it as fun as possible.... Of course I'm almost as wet as she is! Guess she will just have to wait until spring to see her mom play in the sprinkler to learn how fun water is!

Past couple days I've been working on SIT with Parker. Maybe 50/50 on results with out using food. This afternoon I picked up some venison jerky for dogs and the SIT is zeroed in and she slams her butt down so hard I swear the windows rattle!!

Gunny, I can't believe how fast she is growing up. What's she weigh now?

Bill, she was 22.7 lbs 2 weeks ago at the vets office... I'd guess she is over 25 by now!

She is growing like a weed, all legs and tail now.
Getting better when going in the truck, last trip no poopin, peeing or puking- That is progress!

One of our Terriers sits on both verbal command and ASL command. Since SightHunter is deaf, we teach our dogs all commands in both English and ASL. The other Terrier, a one year old Rat Terrier named Masked Marvel, is still struggling with the concept that we are not always wanting to hold him when we say his name.

Deaf dog training is a challenge for sure! Never would have thought about ASL tho! I do use hand signals but not like you have. I'll file that away for future use!
Once my dogs get sit verbally I throw in a snap of the fingers, then once they get that I only use finger snap. People ask my dogs to sit and they look at me funny like I didn't train them at all. Then I'll snap and plunk goes the tuckus. The vet techs always try to get them to sit on the scale, when I hear the frustration in their voice I stick my arm thru the doorway, snap and plunk goes the butt on the scale... They just don't remember...

Not only does Parker like pheasants on the hoof, she REALLY likes to eat them cooked!

Feed those tough old pheasants to the dogs and keep the quail and chukars for the humans, I say.

So last night while wrangling Parker up the stairs I caught my right pinky toe on the edge of the staircase, twisted it out to the 3 o'clock. Not so bad normally but I instantly had a shooting pain go up my leg to my knee. This morning is the opener of our buck week gun season ( and bear)and I'm sitting home with my knee hurtin and a sore toe!
