Sierra's Growing & Learning

Well actually she took a sick day after pigging out on some chinchilla food. I guess it looked better than it really was, and we are back on dog food again!


She has been out hunting for hungarian partridges on the nice days, and we've actually found a few.




And since summer is so far off, there is no need to leave the air in this beach ball. Makes for much better chewing...



Here's Sierra's first attempt at some training... We're trying to teach her how to "leave it" i.e. not eat a treat. But in this video she's having trouble with the basics. She catches on though...

Here Sierra's catching on - but she's still finding those treats too tempting.

And here's Sierra performing like a pro!

In fact I think they've overtrained me at this trick!

Sierra's 10 weeks old!!



Sierra turned 10 weeks old today!! She's had a fun-filled day so far with a trip to Costco - they're starting to recognize her there. She was pretty tired out though, and totally passed out for the car ride home. She's still sleeping... but we'll see later on today what she thinks about the Grey Cup.










Sierra obviously wasn't too interested in celebrating her 10 weeks birth-iversary... but maybe that's because I couldn't find any purple to decorate with. (Purple's her favorite.)





Sierra with the whole family the day she arrived, November 21, 2008.


And here's the picture of Sierra when she arrived in Edmonton at about 8 weeks of age.


This is Sydney (Sierra's older sister) who visited us on the weekend of November 8-9, and prepared us for the dark force moving into the house.
