Today, Cha Cha and Ted got into the routine of daily life. Ted decided to work at home so that he and Cha Cha could continue their father-daughter bonding. Because the weather was yucky, they decided to give mom a ride to work. This also gave Cha Cha some more exposure to life in one of her many crates.

At first, Cha Cha protested her position in the rear. Then she settled in, and took a short nap.

After dropping mom off, Cha Cha and Ted went to Petsmart to get the cleaning supplies that Ted needs when he ignores Cha Cha's pleas to go outside. Of course, at Petsmart, Cha Cha made plenty of friends - part of her socialization process.

Upon returning home, Cha Cha engaged in her favorite activity - chasing the cats.

However, Alex was not too amused with Cha Cha's interest.

Off to the basement, where Ted needed to draft some settlement documents. Cha Cha decided to rest underneath Ted's feet in the convenient cave below the desk.

Her many activities of the day warranted a nice long snooze.

Life as a puppy sure is hard!

l-) I LOVE it. She’s SO precious. I miss her!! Thanks for taking such great care of her and being a wonderful dad. It’s so much fun to watch her on line…

I liked in your mission statement when you said some of the pups you’ve raised have gone on to do well at field trials but all of the puppies you’ve raised have gone on to be good citizens. She’s off to a good start.

Howard, I don’t think there is anything we can do to instill the most important gift a dog can have for the Field Trial Game. That, of course, is the ability to mark. That is something that is revealed between 6 -12 months of age.

What we can do is teach a dog to be self confident, to trust humans, to enjoy learning, and to be well mannered family members. I think all of my puppies have grown to accomplish that mission. I constantly have friends calling and asking for my next reject – because they are great dogs.

At Mesa Veterinary Hospital, where I have been going with my dogs for 25 years, all of the employees know me, and can recall the names of all of the puppies that have passed through their doors. Because the puppies were all very bright, bouncy, affectionate – but, well behaved. They all knew that “sit means sit.”
