The Christmas tree is up!

Sophie and Keisha under the tree
Sophie and Keisha under the Christmas tree

I put up the Christmas tree on Dec. 15th.  I would have put it up earlier, but I was sick for 4 days!  I’m feeling like a human being again now, but I spent over 3 days on the couch!  Keisha was really well behaved when I was sick!  She usually whines and howls if I’m out of the room for any length of time and she is in her crate, but I guess I madesomany trips to the bathroom she got tired of moaning about it!  I don’t let her out of her crate while I’m not in the room with her because she is tall enough to get things off the table now, and I usually have my laptop there.

So far, Keisha hasn’t been too interested in the Christmas tree.  She still dives at it every so often, but I think it’s mostly for attention.  She’s also a lot better around Sophie now!  She still wants to play with her, but when I call her she will come now.  That’s really helpful!  Now when she runs after Sophie I tell her to “come” and instead of nipping at Sophie first, she turns aroudn and comes running toward me!

We also had a snow storm on saturday and sunday!  Keisha loves snow!  She digs in it, leaps around and buries her nose in it.  She even barks and howls when it’s snowing and she’s in her crate because she is suppose to be sleeping.

She’s sleeping in her crate right now, and Sophie’s sleeping on the couch.  It’s nice when it’s this quiet here!  It doesn’t happen very often since Keisha’s been here!


Keisha’s first real snowfall

It started snowing last night.  Keisha spent most of the night in her crate watching the snow fall and howling at it.  After midnight I had to close the curtains because she was making too much noise.  She finally settled down andwent to sleep.

Today when we woke up there was snow up around the windows and as soon as Keisha saw it she wanted to go outside!  I put some new batteries in my camera and got her and Sophie ready to go out.  Luckily we have a pretty big patio area that they can run around on.  I put Sophie on her FlexiLeash, and put Keishas harness on her.  I had to adjust the belly strap because it was too tight!  The last time she wore it was on Nov. 28th!  She’s growing really fast.  I used a longer training leash on Keisha so I could control her a bit.  She likes to leap on Sophie and bite her, so I gave her a bit less leash than Sophie.  They ran around and had some fun before Sophie wanted to come back inside.  Keisha came in a little while later after she chased birds for bit and they both had a nap.

I thought I’d put the video I took on this blog entry instead of some of the pictures I took.  I’ll be adding pictures throughout the winter.  Enjoy the video!
