10 Things I've Learned From A 8 Week Old Sheepdog...

Mollie our new and adorable Border Collie puppy is definitely keeping me on my toes.

We have only had her a few days, yet it already feels like she has lived here a lot longer.

How clever are Border Collies!?! The first day we had a few toilet accidents in the house then on only day 2 she started whining to be taken outside! Maybe because we bought her from a farmer and was used to being outside? (The Vet said farm puppies are easier to toilet train.)

    10 Things I've Learned From A 8 Week Old Sheepdog Puppy:
  1. There is more than one 2 o'clock in a day. {Yep and two 4 o'clock and even two 6 o'clocks}. Saying this I got 7 hours sleep last night!!
  2. You can fall in puppy love and care so much for something you have only had a few days. {She is so sweet everyone loves her, who sees her.}.
  3. Running around the garden in your PJs in the middle of the night can be fun!  {Trying to tire her out for a few more hours sleep}.
  4. Every time you speak to your puppy the words that come out sound like baby talk. {Good girl!! goo goo}. 
  5. A Border Collie can learn something straight away. {Day 2 whining to do her business, amazing!! still a few wee accidents though}.
  6. How quickly an 8 week old can be toilet trained. {Read no.5, hehe}.
  7. A puppy makes a good foot warmer. {Just stand in the same place for more than a few minutes e.g washing the pots and she comes and lays on them!}.
  8. You should never leave your shoes around. {The laces must be so tempting to chew on}.
  9. Every smell that is made in the house the can now be blamed on the dog!  {Boy can she trump!!}.
  10. She grows in confidence every day. {Day one she just sat quietly, now nobody's feet are safe!!}.
