She lost her freedom

After the highlighter incident a few days ago and the homework incident a few weeks ago, Betsy has lost her freedom. She used to be able to wander the house freely. Most of the time she just followed me around or napped on her bed. She always had her dragline on, mainly for my convenience. If she is wearing her dragline I don't have to find a lease in order to take her outside. Now she is back to being "connected to my hip". I am always holding her dragline and watching her. I have repuppy-proofed my room so she can still sleep loose. She has never touched anything in the past so I think she is just rebelling. Hopefully she will realize that she has never been allowed to chew things up in the past and she still can't now!

8 months!

Can you believe Betsy is already 8 months old! She has been with me 6 months so I only have 6ish months left! Yikes!

I would do an "8 things" post but we are heading to the mall to shop with some friends! But I love everything about Betsy!

I absolutely love Betsy's brown eyes. They are hard to describe. They are a crackly brown color. Enlarge the picture and you can kinda see them.

All that being good before Christmas lead to no good!

Hey pups, it's Betsy here!
You all know how hard it is to be good for Santapaws! I worked super duper hard. I did everything my mom asked and was on my best behavior! But gosh that is a lot of work! So the night after Christmas guess what I did.
 the remains of blue highlighter. All the ink is gone from the little ink thing. And the case is broken up in tiny pieces

Yep pups that's right, while my mom was sleeping I chewed up a blue highlighter while momma was sleeping! I guess you could say she wasn't the happiest, but boy did I have fun! I sure am glad my mom is a heavy sleeper and that she got to sleep in! I sure would have hated for her to catch me in the act. When she woke up she was worried that I would get sick. But it never happened. I guess highlighter is okay for puppy bellies!

Look at my tongue!!!

Betsy's mouth opened with a very blue tongue sticking out!

[Sorry it's sideways!]

Miss Naughty Betsy!
But I think I'm going to go back to being a little angel. Wouldn't want Santa to get word of this and not give me presents next year!


Oh and mom said she posted two other posts tonight so scroll down and read them too!

Amazing Drawing!

There is a very nice man named Paul Atzmiller. He draws a black and white pencil drawing of your dogs head for free! All he asks is that you donate an unstated amount of money to one of 9 charities he supports. I heard about it through HPWT's website. HPWT is a GDB club and one of the charities he draws for. They are who I chose to support of course! Paul doesn't know how much money you donate, or if you donate at all. You can find out more about it here. I had Paul draw puppy pictures of both Gabrina and Betsy. The drawings came back AWESOME! You can tell he spends a lot of time on each drawing and loves what he does. I would highly recommend getting your puppy drawn. It doesn't have to be a puppy in training, it can be a pet, a guide, or a CC!
Here is a picture of me and Betsy with her drawing. You can click on it to enlarge and see the drawing better.

And here is the picture I sent in. They look the same!

Betsy at 4 months old. She has her head tipped slightly to her right side.


Gabrina's looks amazing too! In fact, her drawing got chose to be in the calendar that he puts out every year. I don't have a picture of it to put up though! Sorry!

Maddie and Betsy

WOW!

I'm sorry it has been so long since I have updated! I kept meaning to, but something always came up! So here comes a nice probably boring post. I might add one or two more tonight or tomorrow.
I am going to add all the pictures at the end, so if you just want the cute stuff skip this...
I had finals the 17th, 18th, 21st, and 22nd. I was super busy studying and taking all of my finals! We had finals the week of Christmas, lame right!! Some scrooge decided that I should have a super hard final in all 8 of my classes. Grr! But oh well, they are over now and I get to relax. While I was cramming Betsy was hanging out at home wishing she could come to school. And everyone at school was wishing Betsy was there so they could play with her before semester ended. I can't take her on test days though, the principle requested that I don't take her on days when I know I am taking a test. Poor Betsy!
There was a little mix up with who was puppysitting one of the puppies in mu club, so I got to have Mulan from the 21st to the 23rd. Mulan is 5 months old and absolutely adorable! Betsy loved having a friend and was really pouty when she left!
We had a great Christmas. Betsy got a new bone and a new rope for her jolly ball! She would have gotten more if I wouldn't have just boughten her 4 new bones less than two weeks ago. She did great not eating any wrapping paper. I also got a new framed picture of her...I'll do a different post on the picture and how you can get your own!
Two days before Christmas our oven decided to stop working. So we didn't get to give any of our friends baked goods and it messed up our plans for Christmas dinner! But we made something else delicious and are learning to cook without the stove! Betsy and I have spent quite a few days running around with our parents finding the "perfect" oven for our family. I think tomorrow we are going to go pick one up (i hope!). At least I have officially now gotten in all my driving hours, so when April 1st comes around I can get my license! Woot woot!
I think that basically brings us up to date. On Thursday and Friday we are going to be at my grandparents celebrate Christmas with my mom's side of the family. And on Saturday we are going to be at my aunts celebrating with my dad's side of the family! I love Christmas :D!

My dog ate my homework...literally

Yesterday while I was in the bathroom brushing my teeth Betsy was sound asleep on her dog bed. I had just finished doing homework so I had a ton of binders and papers spread out on the floor and on my bed. I left Betsy in my room because she was taking one of those naps where the world ending wouldn't wake her up. Well apparently while I was brushing my teeth the world did end. I walked back in my room to find that Betsy had ever so kindly chewed up a packet. Wasn't that nice of her? Now I get to explain to my teacher that my dog really did eat my homework!
a paper with a very chewed up corner. Sorry that was a horrible description!

Christmas Party!

On Sunday my club had our annual Christmas Party We ate desserts, delicious pizza, and had a white elephant gift exchange. All while watching the snow fall. We got close to a foot last night and it's a whole 7 degrees outside. But do we have a snow day? No of course not! Anyways...here are some pictures courtesy of Stacie the host!

A good investment!

Betsy's tags jingling have been driving me insane lately! So I did some research on tag silencers. I have never been found of the ones that hang down from the collar with all the tags in a cloth bag thing. So as I looked around on Google I came across the perfect tag silencer! It's leather and slides onto the collar. It is the perfect size for Betsy's big girl collar. All of the tags go inside the little pouch and it even comes with an ID card. It is definitely worth buying! Now I don't have to listen to her tags as she scratches her neck in the night; and she isn't super noisy in class anymore!


It only cost $5.98! You can see a picture and buy your own here!

We got some white stuff! [By Betsy]

Guess what happened last night! The white stuff fairy visited last night! Here's the scoop!
I fell asleep last night and it was super cold.
I woke up this morning and ate breakfast.
Mom took me outside to "do my business" and there was white stuff all over the ground!
I went potty and really wanted to play but mom had to go get in the shower and get ready for school.
Bummer right?!?
But mom promised that she would take me outside to play as soon as she got home from school.
Well guess what..while mom was at school my mom's mom (really my grandma, but she doesn't like to be called that..hehe) took me to play in the white stuff!
I ran and ran and ran!
And when mom got home she took me out again!
I ran and ran and ran again!
My friend even came outside to run with me.

Betsy running ahead of a German shorthair pointer dog, Slim. Betsy has a front paw off the ground and her ears are flying backward. The other dog looks very determined to catch up. There is snow on the ground too!

Goodness I love it when that white stuff falls from the sky!
But now I am very tired from all that runnin.
I hope you all had a very nice day!

Love,
Miss Betsy



Oh yeah, mom told me to be super sure I thanked Alphini's raiser for giving us the Thanksgiving award. This is the second time mom has received it so she's not going to repost it, but she wanted to say "thank you very much! We are blessed to have your blog to read too!"

In and Out, In and Out

Today Betsy tried to run out the front door while my friend was walking outside. Luckily I caught her leash as she was just outside the door..but she still tried.
So tonight I propped open the screen door and we went in and out again and again. I wouldn't let her go out the door until I said "Betsy Okay". If she went out the door when I gave the command then we continued for a walk down the street and back. Filled with lots of praise of course!
But if she tried to walk out the door before I told her she could she went on tie down while I walked in and out of the house a few times.
Then we progressed to where I would stand outside the door and she wouldn't move until I came back inside and we went out together. And then we went on our little walk.
Needless to say after 30 minutes of letting cold air into the house, I think she figured it out..but we are going to keep practicing over the next few weeks to beat it into that hard head of hers!
Have you ever had problems with a puppy bolting out the door. If so how did you fix it?

30 x 30

Woo! I made it! 30 posts in 30 days. That's asking a lot of a very busy high schooler! I'm not going to say that all of my posts were great..but I did it! I don't think that posting daily is the thing for me. I ran out of things to say and it turned into more of a ramble! But hey..I tried.

I hope everyone had a great day and enjoyed their Monday...as if that's possible!

And a special shout out to my friend Morgan who is 16 on this very special day!

White Stuff [By Betsy]

You know what!? Sometimes this white stuff falls from the sky. But I can't remember what its called! It is super cold..like ice! And whenever it falls I get super excited. And then momma lets me run in the backyard! I play and play and play! I love love love to eat the stuff. It tastes like ice cubes only it makes me mouth wet super fast! I sure hope we get some white sky stuff soon, even though mommy doesn't like it very much.
Here is a picture of me in it. 


Do remember what that white stuff is called?

Betsy

Momma says Gabrina is in phase 8. I'm not sure exactly what that means but mom is excited for her! Mom said that she is close to graduating college. I will be very excited if she does. Then I don't have to share my mommy with her! So go Gabrina!

How to teach stand

I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving yesterday! Betsy sure did! She got to play with another puppy all day long!! Anyways...
I have been trying really hard to teach Betsy stand but she just doesn't get it! I have done everything in the puppyraising manual with no success. I am planing on asking my leader about other techniques...but I won't see him for a couple weeks. I am hoping that you guys will have some advice on how to teach her; and then I won't have to bother my leader at all ;)


Wow sorry for the horrible quality!

Return of the fuzzy! [By Betsy]

So I don't know if momma ever told you..but my most favorite toy when I was a pup was my fuzzy!

Here is a picture of one..but not mine it's my buddy Anthony:

9 week old black lab Anthony holding a white fleece toy in his mouth.
One day..my 4 month old birthday to be exact...my fuzzy disappeared! I looked everywhere but couldn't find it! Until today...mom has slippers that have my fuzzy inside! I love to carry them in my mouth and show people, but for some reason mom doesn't like it when I do that. I just want to show her that I found my fuzzy!!

Uniforms!

Here is my post for the day; in a kind of poem way. But not really a poem. 

When Betsy was a little puppy
a UPS man came to our door in uniform.
Betsy coward when he tried to pet her.
I think she was afraid of the uniform.

When we visited the fire station,
Betsy was afraid of the firefighters
before they even put on the breathing mask.
I think she was afraid of the uniform.

I have been exposing Betsy
to all kinds of people in uniforms
and I think we have tackled her fear!

Yesterday two navy recruiters came to our house
to talk to my older brother and my parents.
They were of course in uniform
and Betsy wasn't afraid of them!
She loved them.

And this morning
when we saw a UPS man delivering a package
Betsy got very excited.
I think it was the uniform.

But it's fun! [By Betsy]

Hey Pups!
I'm usually such a good girl that momma lets me wander around the house. My favoritest thing to do is go lay on the doggy beds in mom's room! But today I had other plans. When mom was in the bathroom blowing air on her hair, I snuck into the bedroom. Mom watched me go in but she just thought I was going to take a nap. She closed the bathroom door and turned up her music. When I was sure she was busy I tore up some of my doggy bed! It was sooooo much fun! I am a smart dog though and didn't chew up the whole thing. If I did that I wouldn't have anything to sleep on! When mom walked in the room I gave her my best puppy eyes. But I think she was still pretty mad. She cleaned up the bed super quick so her parents wouldn't see and get mad at me. Mom said I lost all my freedom! Now every time she gets up I have to follow. And she never lets me wander off on my own. I am always on tie down, in my kennel, or glued to my mom's side. This is no fun!!

I promise never ever to chew on another bed!

Guess what I did! [By Betsy]

Yesterday after school mom got out my vest and I knew that something exciting was happening! I got in mom's friend's car and we went for a drive. When I hoped out of the car we were at that school place I have told you about. I walked in and there were tons of people standing in line for something. Mom bought a ticket and we went into this room full of chairs! I slept for a little bit but then some music started playing. I'm sure you all know what a drag it is to sleep through music. I sat up to see what was going on and there were people on this big platform thing up front. There was a pig and a spider and a little girl. It was amazing! They were talking and singing and laughing. It put me in a very good mood. But after a few minutes of watching I fell asleep. Mom woke me up and everyone was leaving. She said it was a very good play. I like to play to; I play tug and hide and seek real good! I'm not sure what those people were playing, but I sure hope I can play that game someday!

Funky Seating!

Betsy has always sat/laid in the car weird. Usually she curls up in a tiny ball under the seat. Or she will sit and fall asleep with her head on the seat. Sometimes she spreads out and take up as much space as possible. Or will sit and stare out the window.
Get the idea?
Well this is the weirdest position I have seen yet, she put her butt on the seat and had her front feet on the ground! It was very uncomfortable looking. I have a picture of her right before I told her to get off, but Blogger isn't letting me upload it...Maybe someday.

A bath!

Last week I was carrying a glass of juice and Betsy so nicely bumped me. Causing the juice to spill all over her back. She didn't mind, but I didn't want her to get sticky and itchy. So it was time for a bath!


Betsy is a pretty easy dog to bathe. She is content to just stand there while I scrub her and spray her down. Rinsing her can be difficult though. She doesn't like to move around so I usually end up spraying either myself in the face or spraying water all over the bathroom.


Oh the joys of bathing puppies!

Maddie and Betsy



I was going to add a picture of Betsy's pathetic "I'm all wet" face, but Blogger won't let me! Maybe some day.

I have been wanting to put the alt tags and image descriptions on my photos so screen readers can get the whole gist of my blog.

Can some one please tell me how to do it!

Freedom [By Betsy]

You guys will never ever guess what happened yesterday! It snowed and I got a taste of freedom. Here's the scoop
It was snowing outside and mom was getting ready for bed. She had taken off my dragline and thought I was laying on my bed in her room. But little did she know I wanted to play in the snow! Mom opened the front door to go outside and get her phone from the car when I made an escape. I didn't mean to bolt out the front door but snow is my favorite! I ran around and around the yard. Mom immediately ran out the front door. She yelled Betsy Come. Well all you pups know come equals food! And with all the snow I couldn't help but be extra excited and run right past mom. She called me again and I came to her, but when she reached down to grab me I just ran away again.  I never once stepped out of the yard or went out of mom's sight, but for some reason she was very scared. She would try to grab me and I would run. I just wanted to play, honest! Mom is sneaky too though, she snuck up behind me when I was eating some snow and grabbed me. I guess she was pretty mad because she made me sleep in the kennel with no toys AND no bed :[. Poor me! I promise never ever to run out the front door again and mom says she promises never ever to let me! So pups, the moral of the story...while running out the door and having freedom is fun, it's not any fun when your mom is mad at you!

[Here is me running in the snow in the FENCED backyard!]

Did anything exciting happen to you today?

Betsy the runner!

Do Your Business

Every puppyraiser does them...a monthly report. How in depth do you go on your reports? do you write a few sentences at the bottom or entire paragraphs. A year and a half into puppyraising and I'm just now wondering if I have been filling these things out right at all. My leader has never said anything to me so I'm hoping everything is okay.

How detailed do you go with your monthly reports? When do you consider something serious enough to get put on the report?

It's those stairs again! [By Betsy]

You will never guess what my mom did yesterday!!! She made me walk on those scary stairs with the holes in them. But this time she had food with her. I waited at the bottom while she walked to the top. (Editors note: there were 5 steps). Then momma said "come!". Well, "come" is my favorite command in the whole word. So I took off running, but then I realized that it was those stairs again. I had my front feet on the first step. I really wanted to go up to my mom and get that piece of food but it was scary! I stretched my body all the way up to the 3rd step, but I still couldn't reach her. I had to put my back feet up. Slowly but surely I climbed all the way to the tippy top of the stairs! And you know what mom did?! She gave me a jackpot of kibble! Yippee! Then we walked up and down the stairs until I forgot all about those silly holes. Hopefully the next time I have to practice on them I won't even notice the holes.


[I'm one sleepy girl!]


Do all you hot dogs have a wonderful Thursday?

Yummmmmy Ice!

Betsy absolutely loves her ice cubes. When she hears someone get out a glass she jumps up and sits by the refrigerator. Then she waits very patiently for her ice cube. She looks you in the eyes until you say the magic word (Betsy OK). And then crunch crunch crunch! Yum Water!


Do you give your puppies even after they finish teething?

All Growed Up? [by Betsy]

Hellooooo World!!
Momma says I'm growin like a weed. I don't know exactly what a weed does, but I'm sure it is beautiful if my mommy is comparing me to it. Yesterday mom made me stand up against the wall while she drew where my back was and then she made me stand on this big pad thing that beeped! That wall must have been magic because as soon as I walked away mom said my back was 21 1/2 inches tall! If my back is that tall, can you imagine how tall my head must be?!? Wowzers! And the beeping pad said I weighed 50 lbs! I'm one big puppy. My big sister, Gabrina, weighed 55 lbs at recall. I am going to be bigger. Ha, I always knew I was better than her!! And just think, I'm only 6 months old! Aren't I a big girl? Practically all growed up...don't cha think?

XOXO
Betsy!

A Busy Weekend

Betsy had a very busy weekend, but there are no pictures for this post.
Friday: 4-H Achievement night. Betsy got to experience a crowd of over 600 people. There was lots of applause, music, noise, little kids, food on the floor, and people talking on a microphone. I must say that Betsy was awesome! She laid and slept for the first half and the second half she just sat up beside my chair and watched the people. Then at the end (3 hours later), I took her potty, which she was  grateful for, and she "stayed" as I helped clean up.
Saturday: I had two soccer games. Betsy sat through the first one. We went out to lunch at Qdoba and then Betsy slept through the second one. The field I was playing on doesn't allow pets so we (I should say my parents), got to educate the public on the access rights of PITs in CO.
Sunday: Another soccer game. Betsy chewed on her bone the whole time! Then we went to lunch at Red Robin. Despite the crowd, dirty floor, and loud noises, Betsy was able to sleep! Good Girl.


Sorry for a boring post,
