I am still guessing her weight to be about 115#s. Hopefully we can get by the vet or Petsmarts scale soon.
She is still growing and her appetite is increasing.
We wake up around 4 -5:00 a.m. and its doggie potty time. By 5:30 a.m. Crickets whining and moaning for breakfast. Daisy and Zoee do not do this but Cricket is very vocal with her opinions.
Cricket gets 3 cups dry food plus one heaping tablespoon of canned mixed up with 1/8 cup water 2 x a day. She does the same moaning and whining for evening food around 4:00 p.m.
Zoee and Daisy get 1 1/2 cups 2 x a day mixed with water and the heaping tablespoon of canned food.
Daisy had to go back on her Iiams dog food but now she is on healthy weight version. She was getting to be square no curves lol. I think the other food is to high or protein for her at her age. She is easy going so the transition went just fine.
Jeanelle and I read about dry food causing bloat so now our dogs get it mixed with a little water usually about 1/8 cup water seems to be working out well for everyone.
The dogs have been enjoying the cooler weather and seem to be spending more time outdoors that is a good thing for Cricket and Zoee who are always rowdy and wrestling.
Daisy is calmer and prefers to be where we are she likes keeping an eye on us.
We take turns letting the dogs walk down the road with us and they all enjoy that. It is a disaster to take all 3 at the same time.
We switched everyone to the martingale collars I like the design it slips over their head and tightens if they are pulling on a leash. Since our dogs do not wear collars full time they get so excited to see the collar and leash and start doing jumping flips. The collars come in different widths and Crickets is the wider one the boxers the narrow one. I found ours on Amazon they had some nice aztec patterns.
Life is good in our 3 dog family we just go through a lot of dog food with Crickets appetite.
Cricket is our 4 months old Cane Corso she is weighing in at a whopping 55#s.
She is not easy to get good pics of because she’s a bit lazy but with Jack helping me we were able to get these shots while using dog biscuits to bribe her.
When she walks she stomps so her feet sound like someone in flip flops on our wood floors. I have never seen a dog with such big feet.
She loves the grandkids but of course, they help raise all the puppies so she remembers them.
Zelda’s litter was 7 puppies this was Crickets litter they are all dual registered.
Ravens litter were ICCF Registered and there were 11 puppies but 1 died.
The two litters were 3 weeks apart in age things were a bit crazy for awhile trying to make sure all the pups got plenty of exercise and were well adjusted to children.
They all sold very quickly due to the quality of the puppies. Right now there are 2 pups Crickets age in special training one is guard dog training and the other is in obedience training.
Our daughter has Storm a 1-year-old black female Cane Corso that has not been bred yet is at a special training camp for a one-month training on obedience.
I am currently looking for a local trainer that works with obedience training that is reasonably priced. Most of these are $800.00 – $1500.00 for a months worth of training and that is with you taking them back and forth.
I have managed to potty train her, teach her to sit and walk on a leash but that is it so far.
