Kati, Kati, Kati....
(turns out all this time, i'd been spelling it wrong!)
She is just about 5 months old now, and she is learning! It is so great to have her understanding commands! Although, her increase in knowledge seems to mean an increase in tricks and being sneaky!
Kati just advanced from the beginning more playful puppy class to the level one training class. So far she has learned: Come, Sit, Down (as in get off of that right now!), and she is in the process of learning Drop (as in drop to the floor...or lay down).
Kati is also becoming more easily worn out! This just means that instead of running around the freezing cold yard with her for half an hour, and then tossing the ball for her for half an hour, and then coming back inside and wanting to play with all of her toys inside too....now I can run with her outside for a half hour and then bring her back in to play with the ball for another ten or so minutes before she goes and zonks out under the hutch.
