My Little Ariel

July 29th, 2004, 08:29 AM
Just got her 2 months ago from the breeder. My wife was totally stressed out during the first week as she constantly whined at night and always needed someone to check up on her. This is her first experience with a dog as her parents don't really like having pets. I'm quite the opposite, I love cats and dogs and have been around with them all my life. Things have changed quite dramatically now. My wife truly loves Ariel and misses her a lot when she's at work.

2nd Day at Home

Enjoying her new toys

Taking a nap

Freshly Bathed

Claiming her chair at camping

Wearing her Life Jacket in the Canoe

Resting by the cliffs during Hiking

Hair finally long enough for a Ponytail!

Very adorable!!!! Excellent pictures! Welcome to you and Ariel!! She's proably wining at night because she misses the warmth of her littermates and mommy! A hot water bottle under a fluffy comforter might do the trick!!! :D

Yeah, but that was only during the first week. After exactly 7 days. We woke up and the first thing we asked each other was "Did you hear her whine?". She just totally stopped. She's been good ever since, she walks in her crate when I tell her its time for bed and doesn't make a sound until morning. When I go down to get her for her walk. :D
