She is beautiful!
As far as the whole ignoring thing, I tried it, it's not for me. I did have a dog that pee'd when he was excited so the second we got home we immediately took him outside where we could "safely" greet him. Your pup looks very young so she just may not be able to control herself. You sound like your off to a good start.
