Today, new and strange things! Puppy on leash went for a walk in the hallway. omgyouguys! :)

Also, grooming is becoming easier, although she still trembles. Tonight we even managed to trim up the fur on her feet. (We still have ice, although the rain is trying to wash it away, and ice means salt, and salt is no good for puppy feet.)

She has decided she needs to sleep beside our bed, but I found a corner to tuck her up in so she's not in danger of getting stepped on. She rearranged her blanket last night, after I arranged it for her. :)

Also also we forgot to tell you! Puppy is a multi-tasker. *solemn nod* It's true! She will carry loofah dog in her mouth while she attacks plays with the cat. She doesn't forget what she's doing either, nor get confused by 'playing' with two things at once. Girl is too darn clever.

...

In non-puppy news, Monday was the end of my six month probation period at work. Yay! I can no longer be fired without due cause. XD (not that that was really ever a concern)

Today, coworker and I told boss "we need more work!" :) And so we got some. Yay! (I hate being bored, and I was getting bored from lack of work, but unable to just use the time to write.)

Yay walkies! Is she doing a little better about getting used to the leash?

What sort of grooming tools are you using on her, and what's her coat texture like? I know poms have the classic spitz/primitive double coat, but I don't really have any hands-on acquaintance with one so I don't know if their guard hairs are more the slick/harsh tangleproof husky type, or the more mat-prone soft-and-wooly type...

A little at a time, yeah. :)

At the moment we're just using a wide-tooth metal comb, with rounded teeth. Her undercoat is the more mat-prone type - it's what we're trying to keep under control as it grows in. :) The guard hair is layer is kind of... scraggly at this point. XD Hard to say how it will turn out.

(I ♥ your icon, btw.)

Loofah dog is not actually made of loofah. There is sunshine today! Maybe photos *can* actually happen.
