Default Brought Kimber home yesterday.

We got our puppy after what seemed like a forever wait. Her name is Kimber, she is from True Haus Kennels in Oroville, CA and she is 8 weeks today. The boys love her!

She is chewing on a shed antler. Besides being a family pet, she will be a shed hunting dog.

Kimber is doing great! She is only getting up once in the night and seems to love her crate (for the most part). She is doing really well with the boys. She has quite the prey drive and running young boys set her off. We are working on bite inhibition.

She has been so so with the cats. One of the cats, Cheezit, is super social and tries to play. They have had a few play sessions from a few feet across (both still not too sure). They have touched noses several times. The other cat, Miles, not so much and he let Kimber know that with a swat across the nose. Kimber is now a little leery of Miles, the big cat.

We are doing good with potty training. We still have had zero poop accidents. Pee accidents, not so good. She goes often and we have missed it 5-6 times now. I have a question about going pee. She sometimes will dribble when she is excited, but only when she needs to go squat (on our way out to go pee). Is this just cause her bladder is full? Also, we have a large deck and sometimes she will go pee on the deck on her way out to terra firma. Will we be able to break this habit?

Here are a few pics:

As to the deck thing .. we have a deck too. First potty of the day, I carried him out. It took too long to go from the crate to the door and off the deck. Then, he could make it outside, but still didn't realize that just because he made it outside he still needed to go down to the grass so I would scoop him up at the outside door and carry him down the deck steps. Now he has no problems.

Just an update. Kimber is getting big, she is now 18 weeks and 46 pounds. She has been doing good with not going pee in the house or on the deck. She has only had a few accidents in the last month. She still has a problem with excited peeing. We are really hoping that goes away.

She has been meeting a lot of new dogs and has been having a blast. She has been going on a lot of hikes and loves finding deer parts and bringing them home. She seems to have boundless energy and LOVES to chew. She is doing great with our young boys and no longer bites or chews on them.

Here is a few pics. It is hard to get her to stay still. We were slaughtering a pig and she was getting into everything, so we tied her up.
