Default My little brat...I mean darling :)

I already said hello in the welcome forum but someone there said they hope to hear more about my mini aussie Sunny,since aussies are so full of mischief.OH BROTHER yes. For starters, my little imp is just over 3 months old and thinks he is deserving of ALL the attention in the world. If we go for a walk in the park and one poor jogger trying to make good time on their lap doesn't stop and pet him he first sort of chases after them and then when he figures out that they aren't looking back, plops his butt on the ground and whines as if to say "MOM! HOW DARE THEY NOT ADMIRE MY CUTENESS!" We are trying to work him away from that because it can take up to 2 minutes to get him re-focused on his romp and I don't think it is so good for his morale to be so downtrodden when someone ignores him for a good reason. Silly pup. Also, he is just reaching the place where he thinks we have all the time in the world to stand outside in the cold to go potty. He was doing SOOO WELL going on command and rushing back inside but for some unknown reason he just takes his sweet ol' time now. And he is smart. He loves the out of doors and knows that even if I am busy if he wimpers at the back door(or at the end of his leash while I am cooking or doing something that I need to be focused on and can't do that and watch him so he doesn't destroy the house) I will immediatly rush him outside to potty. He will eek out roughly 1oz. of liquid and then meander around sniffing like he needs to poop so that he gets more time outside. One would think that we don't spend over 2 hours some days in the yard playing ball or at the park on trails. And heaven forbid it is raining out. He looks at me as if it is MY fault he is getting wet ! As for real mischief he his worst is attacking my once very intact socks until his little pin sharp teeth ruin them ON MY FEET! Ouch. Working on that one too. Started wearing shoes and slippers in the house he has figured out how to jump out of the bathtub now so I need to get in with him (my poor husband thinks I am wierd) so the whole bathroom doesn't end up needing to be cleaned. Intelligent, oh yeah, knows sit, stay, wait(like if we are on a trail where I know he will be safe on just a safety lead I let him go ahead of me and I say wait he sits his little rump down and waits)high five (my favorite), dance, working on crawl, rollover, and stay from a distance. He's just starting to "forget" my commands and signals so we still need to work on it daily, but hey, he loves his treats and will just about leap tall buildings for one and a pat on the head. The one thing he isn't so awesome at is sitting still, even after a 2.5 hour romp in the park. Sigh, I have my work cut out for me but I am seriously loving every minute of it (well not the stinky part like the housetraining mistakes but you know)Well I think I am done my disgusting "new mommy" bragging. Sorry about that

LOL! I hate to tell you but the house slippers will stop him for now, but not for too long (this is from my own personal experience). My dog is obsessed with my slippers now. He destroyed my last pair...ON MY FEET!

Sounds like you are having so much fun with that little stinker. I have a big stinker now (he is over a year old) and he is still so much fun...but he is still a stinker.

the bad part is that they say not to make a big production of it when he does it so that he doesn't associate "happy" gestures (like me hopping up and down going "ouch" in a highpitched voice and running away apparently) with this game of his.I'm not so great at being stoic Sigh. besides that he is a doll baby but oh brother I didnt' think he could hurt THIS bad with that tiny mouth.

I figured out with Shiva that growling at her when she did that got it through her head that ALL of us weren't having fun! Even puppies as big as she was have those needle teeth. I feel for the mother dogs!

Oh that is nice of her. Brady just had my pot holder and I tried to ignore him, and he threw it in the air over and over until he got a response from me.
