March Madness

It’s been a bit over a month since I last posted and boy has it been a crazy time.

We recently moved to a new apartment which took Java a little getting used to. We had to paper train her all over again! She has also grown considerably and weighed in at 30lbs as of her last vet visit. I’m sure she’s over 30lbs now!

And now….as she enters the stages of adolescence she is beginning to act out and challenge us on anything and everything.

Cute as she may be sometimes, I think we are going to have to dedicate some funds to getting a personal trainer. Sooner rather than later.

My boyfriend seems pretty set on using Bark Busters. If anyone has had experience with them, please do share!

Java likes her coffee

I thought I’d share this cute picture of Java with a coffee time cup holder. Prior to this, she was playing with a Tim Hortons cup. Ha, I guess her name suits her after all!

P.S. While waiting for someone to enter the building after our walk (because Mike took my keys to work), she was surprisingly well-behaved when a handsome stranger was petting her. I think she likes good-looking boys because she is NEVER an angel after a walk!

Bite marks from Java. Sometimes she just won’t stop biting me and growling. When I ignore her, she keeps biting. If I put her in he play pen and ignore her she is an angel inside the pen until I let her out again. And if I try to exert dominance she growls like a demon child.

I’m at loss as to what I do. I have a feeling that she thinks she dominates me. What do I do? How do I exert my dominance?

After watching countless episodws of Cesar Millan, I feel even more helpless because I can’t do anything his shows talk about. I’m such a failure 😦

Pee Pads taste…good?

Java has taken to a liking of pee pads. I’m not sure whether she is chewing it up because of boredom or frustration or whether she genuinely enjoys the mixed taste of poop and pee on the pad.

I think its a way for her to get our attention (to play with her) because she knows that everytime she goes to shred it up, we will be right there taking it away from here. Sometimes, she even engages us in a chase.

The big question is…how do we get her to stop?

Let’s not even get started on the water splashing. That, my friends, I will save for another post.

Oh the weather outside is frightful

Java went on her first walk outside two days ago! Scared and hesitant at first, she now LOVES going outside for a breath of fresh air. Her favourite activity? Digging her nose in the snow and eating it!

Still struggling to get her through the hallways and into the elevator at first. But once she realizes its to play in the snow, she’s happy as a clam!
