I wanted to get a video of Kili working on these skills, but being a strange creature she decided to stop eating anything for 2 days. She's actually LOST weight instead of gaining weight. I was forewarned that this is normal for puppies. Sometimes they just quit eating for a few days. Still, I have to admit it is slightly unnerving when I have the opportunity to weigh her every day and she's almost back down to her original weight.
On my day off I took Kili all around town to experience new things. We went to the pet store and the groomer's to meet new people. I took her downtown so she could see and hear a greater volume of traffic. She did really well. We worked on some of her puppy class homework while we were out and she did amazingly well. I was really proud of her.
Water consumption and housetraining has been a problem. The girl is a water tank. She will easily drink 4-5 times the amount that Summit does. Summit has a 6 quart bucket of water that between him and the cat I would refill every 4-5 days, and not because it was empty but because I figure that's long enough for water to be sitting out. Now if Kili had her way I'd be refilling that bucket every day. I can't let her have her way though because otherwise she has accidents in her crate. But if I don't let her drink freely she lunges at the water bowl and screams like a banshee. She tries to drink out of puddles when she's out for walks. She tries to drink out of toilet bowls. It is honestly absolutely crazy. I could use a bowl of water as a reward instead of food or treats. If I put a bowl of water in her crate she would run straight in. Drink it all. Then pee in her crate. It is very frustrating.
