For the most part they have fun but sometimes I can tell Coke gets annoyed. Nikon bites his ears and he HATES that, he yelps every time. Generally I do not step in, b/c Coke really needs to learn to tell him off before Nikon gets much bigger, but once in a while I will scruff Nikon and push him off. Nikon is really vocal when he plays (constant growling and barking) so if it starts to annoy ME, then I step in and put Nikon in his pen for quiet time. When they play outside, Coke has more room to get running and he can be pretty rough with Nikon so I figure they are even!

I read about Nikon's first day at puppy class and I wanted to ask you what is Rub-A-Dog?

Rub-a-dog is what Julie calls her version of their restraint exercise. Basically you sit on your knees and the dog is in a sit between your knees, back to you (you both face forward). You put one hand under the dog's chin and use the other do to hard strokes all down the back and on the chest. The puppies will squirm and howl. You don't want to hold their head, but move the hand that's under the chin with the dog and if you need to restrain them tighter, use the petting hand to apply pressure on the back of the dog's neck. Basically it teaches them to start relaxing when they are touch, to accept all sorts of petting and handling, and to not do the instinctive head twist and bite when someone reaches from behind or over the head to touch the dog's head or neck. Luckily Nikon has always been pretty OK with rub-a-dog. For him it's important b/c in shows he will be stacked and touched all over by people he's never met so as a puppy we train him to be calm and even enjoy it. It's not a "dominance" exercise, more of a self-control exercise where eventually they are conditioned to become more calm when humans pet them (b/c as much as everyone likes to pet and hug dogs, for a lot of dogs that's not a natural thing).

Awww!!

I'm a little concerned about her. I don't think she has quite enough toys.

How is your cat adapting to her, Amy?

Haha. I find all dogs to be precious. Puppies are too cute. I don't think I'd be able to leave the house if I had a puppy.

Does anyone else have the "shedding" problem with their dogs? I know it's part of the winter coat growing... but my dog is killing me with her floating-in-the-air fur.
I wake up every morning with fur all over my face. I love her too much to make her sleep on the floor..
