    Thumbs up So proud of Winnie!

    Well, I just have to tell y'all how proud I am of my girl. Some of y'all probably remember what a naughty puppy Winnie was--such a terrible biter and absolutely terrible with my grand babies! Not mean, just way too rough, jumping on them, bulldozing over them. The last couple times I've kept them overnite, I have boarded her because it's just too stressful! Anyway, I kept one, George on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week and tried to take Winnie to board, but they were full for spring break when I called. I'm so glad they were full, because Winnie did great with George once she calmed down. Here's a pic:

    I am really relieved! She just calmly followed him around. The only time he fussed was when she got in his way. But she was very gentle. I don't know if her manners class is helping her behavior or if she has just matured since she saw them last. Yay Winnie! Good girl!

    Yeayyyy Winnie!!!! That is wonderful news. Also, the most you expose her to the children, and she learns to be gentle, the better she'll get. Give her lots of rewards, and love and praise for being a good baby! Your grandson is such a cutie, and it looks like he loves Winnie too! No more boarding for Winnie (crossing fingers)

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Yay Winnie!! I think once she gets over the initial excitement of having visitors, she will continue to be great. Frankie does this to us. He gets so excited that new people are in the house he jumps and bulldozes innocent, unsuspecting people!! lol I have found leashing him before anyone comes into the house helps. He has to sit and wait for all to be in the house and then I allow him to go and greet everyone calmly. On the leash I can correct any behavior that I don't like. after he has said his hellos I unleash him and he goes about his business without any jumping or craziness.

    That is what I'm hoping for with Winnie. At her next manners class we're going to work on greeting people nicely. She's doing great at her classes--we just need to overcome the initial excitement as it's over the top! I had an older lady come over not long ago and Winnie jumped all over her, got her leg caught in the lady's purse handle and nearly pulled her over! It's funny now, but not so funny at the time. My friend has wild dogs too, so at least she had a sense of humor about it.

    I also kept a harness on Winnie so that I could easily grab her if she got out of line. I love this little girl more every day!

    This is what happens, they creep into your heart more and more each day until you feel like your going to burst.

    Winnie is 9 months old. I'm so pleased with the way she's maturing--she's the absolute sweetest, most affectionate girl! For a while when she was a puppy, I thought she was a sociopathic dog! lol She bit us constantly and was so hard to housebreak. She doesn't bite at all anymore and she's housebroken and she is so lovable. Still needs work in a couple of areas, but she's doing great.
