It was the hurdle we were waiting for from those two, accepting Helen into their flock. We are so much counting on them to help us educate Helen and they haven't failed us at all.
    That is great! They will help her along in learning the way of the house

    Helen update .

    Hi everyone . It's been 6 weeks now since we have brought Helen home and she recently had her premiere local vet visit. Lots of good news there , most notably as she was the runt of the litter is that she has caught her siblings in weight at 7.5 lbs. Finding the proper diet and feeding times has been a challenge but we have settled on what we feed Freeda , we now feed her in smaller portions . All the higher end dry foods ran right through her and we couldn't keep up it seemed picking up or training her at that point .

    Thus we have entered our biggest challenge with Helen, to ask to go outside to poop. I am no 2 days in on a timed food given diet , following her around the house when she moves attemping to catch her in the act . There has been times when I missed her actions but showed her soon after . It's much harder trying to show Helen displeasure ad compared to enthusiasm, which she gets I'm sure . But when we tower around her with our hands on our hips , or rubbing our eyes crying like we are sad , I think she feels threatened or feared by our gestures . Stating that , we always if we are both home give the admiration or disdain together and slowly it feels like it's working.

    She walks incredibly well with Freeda and often but doesn't too much do her business then either .

    This is a photo of one of two of her lairs

    Re: New member - deaf puppy

    I've always experienced success with a routine feeding/going out to potty schedule. It doesn't take very long at all for all my dogs (past and present) to learn when to expect to be let outside to relieve themselves. For example, feed dog, then let them rest for about 30 minutes, then take outside for potty. The dog learns that after he eats, he has a chance to go potty and will "hold it" until then. My own dog knows that every time I let her out of the crate, she also gets to go outside immediately. She often will beat me downstairs and sit by the door.

    Hope you find something that works well for you. Love the updates!

    Re: New member - deaf puppy

    Helen made it back to the house today after her Mondays surgery to remove her ovaries. She seems to be fine and hasn't missed much of a beat . Oh to be young. I had a hang nail this morning and barely got out of bed . We had asked the vet to remove the extra baby teeth that hadn't fallen out but he did not . I dont think the front desk relayed our concern on that matter. Now we are wondering if we have to perhaps they will still fall out.

    Helen at home in Lair II on Tuesday afternoon

    Cost of surgery was 512$ Canadian dollars

    Re: New member - deaf puppy

    She was born on August 15 2018

    We phoned back on the teeth. Doc says those are permanent teeth growing and it's just the way her mouth is growing/grew that there is a few extra teeth above her main embankment of top teeth .
