For her 9 month adventure she ate a 3 year old crepe myrtle tree and a remote control for the tv. No worries the batteries were still in the remote.
You have to be on your toes all the time with this young lady.
It was not like she did not have large balls, small balls, toys, full size tires, large sticks, ropes and a place to dig along with a water tank, swimming pool and large rocks she moves all around the yard to chew on.
Just when you think you have enough chew things in the yard for her she decides to find something new.
Cane Corso puppies are a great deal of fun but they need constant entertainment if not boredom catches up to them and they ruin something you wanted to keep. My knockout roses are in a large raised square bed that had large wooden round orbs on each corner. She ate the orbs that were bigger than her mouth.
Everything they eat when they are bored tends to be something that is not intended for dogs.
I will be so glad when this puppy stage is over for the big headed Cricket.
Shady Acres Rosharon should be having puppies in mid December from Raven and Zelda both Cane Corso’s Females are bred. There has been a list of people waiting for months for the next batch of puppies that have already put down deposits.
Mako bred both the females this was the first time for him to be the stud since he was 19 months old. He is the Formentino (dark beige color) male she got as a puppy that has the best personality.
Cricket is our 7 months old Cane Corso puppy who weighs about 115#’s.
The boys from this litter are around 125 – 130#s.
She is a very big girl who is very smart and very protective of me.
Shady Acres Rosharon does a wonderful job with the quality of their pups and picking out really good matches for breeding purposes. Our daughter has it figured out which colors of pups you will get with the colors of the male and females you breed.
The sunflowers on her head was something I wanted to do for fun. I love dog photography sessions and I love to capture the unexpected with a large dog.
Cricket loves the grand kids and tries to sit on them she wants so badly to be a lap puppy. She does not realize her size she just knows she is a puppy that drools a lot.
Every morning around 5 a.m. she whines and cries for her breakfast she does the same thing in the afternoon around 4 p.m. She is very verbal and is not ashamed to show you.
All three of the dogs get a long great and play well together.
Every dog has a unique personality and they all do little things to show off who they really are.
Cricket our Cane Corso pup turned 6 months old on August 2nd.
She is starting obedience training on August 10th. This lady will come to our home 2 x per week and work on all her commands and teach her to act like a well-behaved lady.
She is very smart and seems to pick up stuff really fast so I really think this training should work out well for her.
She starts training indoors, then we move to the yard where there are some distractions. As the weeks go on we will move to the park where there are lots of people & distractions. A dog has to be able to focus on commands in all situations.
I feel like she’s probably a 100#s now she grows really fast.
I ordered her an XL kennel and she can stand up in it and sprawl out so this one should be the perfect size for her to sleep in at night. Her collars are 23″ I just bought two new ones for her.
The plastic kiddie pools are not lasting so I think its time we get a galvanized stock tank. I found one that is 2 ft wide x 4 ft long x 1 ft deep for $90.00. Sometimes I catch her in the pool sitting up cooling off and asleep lol.
I will post an update on Cricket’s training during the next month.
Our Cane Corso Cricket is 12 weeks old now and she loves to eat, play and find sticks.
She eats 4 cups of food every morning and every evening. We buy a high protein puppy food with 28% protein and 20% fat. It is called Valu-pak and we buy it at the feed store by the 50# bag. I think it’s about $35.00.
Our daughter researches a lot of dog foods because the Cane Corso are high energy dogs and they need some really good high protein food. This one was better than the Iams I was feeding the two boxers. I just put them all three on the puppy/ active dog food.
She was 20#s at 8 1/2 weeks and now at 12 weeks is weighing in at 37#s. She has gained 17#s in a month lol. That seems like an awful lot but she is not fat just stocky and she has a thick body.
She likes to sit or lay down during picture time so much for showing off her physique.
Zoee and her spend a lot of time wrestling so she can be quite active when she wants to be. They have a hole they dig in and they love tug of war with sticks and chase.
Her blue eyes are starting to change colors they will end up being a Goldy brownish color. She had on one of Daisy’s collars in this picture so it was too big. I need to order her a new collar I hate trying to figure out the collar colors. I need to get her a name tag as well with my cell number on it.
Actually, I need to get all 3 dogs chipped.
We expect her to be a minimum of 125# pounds but it could be more she is much stockier than her sister is. We thought the sister would be bigger than her.
Cricket the monster dog will be showing up occasionally to give you all updates of how much she has grown.
Zelda had 6 puppies they are the ones I took pictures of a while back she was one of them.
Our granddaughter Sophia named her when she was little I told her I will keep the name but add to it.
We are coowning her with our daughter Jeanelle. She kept the other female pup Hippo and we have this one. I think the two females were the ones in the box by themselves in the last photo session.
She’s a little bit insecure being away from her littermates. Potty training is an A+ and she goes in the kennel with no problems at night.
We have had her 3 days and Daisy and Zoee are tolerating her at this point but getting along okay. She has tried to nurse from both of them and they have told her NO! She is an ankle biter and I am trying to break that habit quickly.
I told Zoee in a month she will be bigger than her. These dogs grow so fast it’s unreal.
Zelda’s pups are sold but Raven’s pups there were 11 and shes taking deposits on them now. There were quite a few solid grey/ blue ones.
I have not had a chance to do pictures of Raven’s bunch due to this quarantine but I can assure you they are beautiful pups. She has been taking pics and putting them on her Facebook page.
