I wasn't sure where to post this , but i have some questions about breeding. I would like Chaos to have one litter of puppies. Mostly because I want to keep two of them. Let me be clear, I do not want to become a breeder. I have no idea how to go about this. How old should she be, she has already had her first heat. How do I go about finding a stud for her? Is it better to inciminate her or let them do it naturally? I'm sure there are other things that I havn't even considered in my list of questions. Any advice would be great.
So Chaos has titled herself Kaysn's(my daughter) defender. SHe will howl and go nuts any time Kasyn cries or is displeased. Today Chaos made Kasyn cry. Kasyn came to me and I picked her up. Chaos came over and stood by us howling and whining and pawing at me. As soon as I put Kasyn down, Chaos stopped. All this time I was getting the evil stink eye from my dog. Silly dog had no idea it was her that made the baby cry.
Chaos is alsmot a year now, and although there have been some trying times, I'm glad we got her. I had to share with someone what she is trying to teach our 14 month old baby to do. Chaos was in her kennel, because the older kids were eating(that's a whole other story). The baby was playing with Chaos through the kennel. Chaos was trying to teach the baby how to open the kennel for her. And it was working, between the two of them, they managed to get one latch open and were working on the second when the kids finished dinner and chaos got set free.
So Chaos whent on her first road trip yesterday. We took her teddybear so she would feel more comfortable in the car. She did great by the way. Anyway we came up on some road construction, and Chaos made a mad dive for her bear. She sat on top of it and stared down the construction workers though the window. It made me giggle cause it looked like she was worried they were going to take her bear. As soon as we were past she got off her bear and layed down again.
I used to do animal theropy with disabled people with my lab, if you can find a dog that is that well trained and remains calm no matter what, and also maybe plays fetch so your nephew doesn't have to get up close and personal right off the get go. My friend is terrified of large dogs, and I had her play fetch with Hershey(my lab). She was very jumpy when Hershey ran back at her with the frisbee until she saw the dog stopped quiet a ways from her. My friend now lives in a house with a very large husky.
Okay so Chaos has been working on sit. When she can see the treat she does it. When I say "sit" without a treat in view she takes off, sniffs here and there, may grab a toy, and then comes back and sits. And she won't sit for my husband at all even when he has a treat in sight. I think the husband thing is because he is only home three days a week and so she doesn't see him as anyone she needs to listen to. But am curious if the I'll do it,but on my own time is a normal trait.
