She just got her first de-wormer last Friday. Stools today are almost normal. Vet thought changing her diet set her off and I put her back on the original Purina puppy chow the breeder used with a bit of rice to settle things down. Is working well.
I have used the cooked rice trick with a lot of dogs in the past.
I only had a few conversations with the breeder. It is my understanding she was being trained in Search. Her first training was for sniffing our gun powered and she was doing well. The breeder is in training for law enforcement at the local college, including K9 support - sponsored by the County Sheriffs and his tribe - call it an inturnship program.
I am in the process of getting the pedigree, but its really not important to me. I got her as a companion and to keep me active in my retirement- which she is surely doing. I hope to get involved in the field exercises with her through a local club here - more fun than AKC championships. The other thing I am hoping for is she will work with my horses and accompany me and the wife on our trail rides, but that is down the road. She did not know what to think of the horses when I introduced her to them yesterday, while holding her in my arms. She did a lot of sniffing, and seemed a bit scared at first. The horses were curious too, sniffing back.
I played a game today with her today in hiding treats around the room. Once she understood there were more hidden she did a very good job of finding them. Some were in plane sight and others hidden in or under things. It was a lot of fun for her and me. Right now she is under my chair sleeping.
Thanks for any help.
