    Default Pau is here!

    About a month ago, after waiting a year, selecting and being selected by her breeder, Pau came home with me. She is now 12 weeks old and a bundle of joy. I don't think I've ever raised a puppy this easy. I work from home, so she has been by my side almost 24 hours a day since she came home. Both of my sisters have been puppy walkers for Guide Dogs of the Desert, so I was well prepared by them and previous puppy raising for her.

    I am crate training her or she is under direct supervision, usually on a leash so she doesn't have a chance to get into much trouble. While I am working, she sleeps under my desk, which is good since I am on the phone most of the day. It is really nice to be able to sneak in walks and training during my breaks. Loose leash walking, potty training, sit and down are going well. She's still a bit mouthy, but we are working on this as well. I have been shoving a chew toy in her mouth when she tries to mouth me. I have also found carrying one of her favorite tug toys is a great way to keep her focused on my during our walks.

    Pau's name comes from a town in the French Pyrenees that is hosting a start and finish of the Tour de France this year. I have a bit of a passion for cycling as well.

    If all goes well, she will be a service dog for me, so we are working with a trainer towards that goal. I can see all ready that she will be a big help for me. Click image for larger version.

    Your puppy is so cute! I am not sure if I could have waited an entire year, but it shows that you have patience, which is great for training. Glad she is doing well with training, and that you are happy with her. They grow so fast, I am not sure how big your desk is, but she might not fit under there much longer. Our first puppy was always moving and playing. Our second puppy was so calm and peaceful and he even slept right through the night without any accidents on his first night. That is a cool name! Enjoy life with your new puppy!

    Sheis darling and looks much like what I think our adopted boy, Sir Moose looked like as a pupy. We adopted him 43 years ago at age 7 and he has always been so clam and laid back.

    We have a lady that sometimes attends our small church that has a solid white Pyr for a service dog. her dog helps her with balance. You would never know that dog was in the back of the church--and I am talking small church in small town. Sir Moose would have made a wonderful therapy dog, especially for kids as he adores kids and when we are out with him,he gravittes towards children.

    Today was Pau's first trip to meet a friend for coffee. My friend is a dog person, but was a bit worried about Pau going into the coffee shop. The staff were happy to see her and had a treat for her. She was very good and for the most part played under the table, as she should. She did get a bit distracted when one group walked by her. After coffee, I took her to the pet supply across the street to check on the raw food they carry. Again she was good while I spoke with the clerk. I made her walk all the way home, which was one of the longest walks she's done. Now I have a very tired and very good puppy. She's really turning out to be a good puppy.
