Long Overdue!

Hi Everyone!

Well, February is over, and Orianna has officially turned 9 months old! I can’t believe it; time seems to have flown since I picked her up last July.

She’s doing a great job so far. Right now, the command we're having issues with is "lap." Orianna has a little issue where when she sits next to a chair, she likes to scoot away from it as she sits down. I’m working on luring her in- I’ll coax her in close with a treat, but sure enough, as she goes to sit, she scooches right on back. So, we’re working on it, what can I say?

Another we’re working hard on is her excitable greetings. Orianna is a HAPPY little girl, and she loves people. Sometimes a little too much. Let’s just say she loses herself in the moment sometimes. She is funny though, because sometimes she’ll start to jump and then realize what she’s done and slam herself back to the ground when she remembers she isn’t supposed to do that!

Orianna is still a tiny gal weighing in at 42 pounds (as of her last weigh three weeks ago). It is funny to compare her with the other CCI pups I’ve raised…Kekah weighed right at the same at Anna’s age, Rogue weighed nearly seventy pounds. I guess I have a knack for petite females. Orianna will be getting weighed again on Friday when we have our vet appointment for her bordatella booster, so we’ll see how much it’s changed in the past couple weeks, although I doubt it’s much.

I’ve still got a ton of pictures to post but haven’t had time to resize them to fit on the blog, but hopefully I’ll get them up soon. In the meantime, I hope everyone is well! Ciao!
