Happy (half) Birthday to Cava!

Cava turned 6 months old on Friday. She weighs 47.4 pounds so I'm hoping she won't end up huge! She finished her first basic obedience class and did very well, easily the most focused dog in the room. Here are some photos of what we've been up to.

Hiking at the lake:





No problem with the metal stairs or the wiggly, squeaky bicycle bridge:





And geese!



Hanging out with Keefer:



Helping to make the bed:





Having fun with her new sloth toy:









And taking a page from the Halo handbook - shredding toilet paper, lol.

Man, those stairs look brutal. She's a tough little girl.

She went down the stairs fairly slowly, i just let her take if at her own pace. Our house is a single story and i’m not sure about the breeder’s. This could have been her first experience with stairs. Or not. She went up them a bit faster.

Wow! Love that coat on her!

Also, at 6 months, 47lbs is perfect! Mei was 50 last week, close to 7 months and is the perfect size! Based off her parents and the way she's going, I don't see her going past 70. I'm cool with that!
