I can't believe how fast Penelope is growing. She's not my lil puppy anymore. Just a few weeks ago she looked like this...
Now she looks like this!
My girl is growing up too fast. She was 10 weeks old last Wednesday. We took her to the clinic for her second round of puppy shots on Sunday. She weighed 21 lbs! Last time we were there, she only weighed 9 lbs!
Now if I could get her over the fear of EVERYTHING outside the yard! I try to take her out to the barn when I feed in the evenings but she refuses to come in. She is scared of Miss Kitty. The noises of the bulls and horse right outside the barn frighten her. I held her in my lap yesterday and let her just sit there. She did okay. I took her to the gate where the bulls were congregated. She refused to look at them. No matter which way I turned, she would turn her head away. The husband went into their pen and she finally watched him. I don't push her very much though. I try to assure her she's safe while I'm holding her and only put her in those stressful situations for a few minutes. She is always so happy to return to the yard.
She's won the husband over too. He doesn't like to admit it but he can't hide it! He kept taking our pictures on the way to the clinic on Sunday! I don't blame him. Who wouldn't want to take pictures of these two babes! LOL!
