It didn't take long for Gidget to make herself right at home, which was nice because I was pretty busy preparing for Christmas Eve! She instantly attached herself to Maddie. . .maybe because they are around the same size or maybe just because Gizzy is a little to small and crabby for her liking! My cats however, they must have had a hunch about this new gal. Gidget likes to play and my kitties. . .not so much! Gidget doesn't get that they don't like to be chased! We're working on that though!
So after a few days with our new girl, I've noticed that she is still all puppy and just wants to play! I don't have a fenced yard, so I took her to a dog park today and she LOVED it! It was my hope to wear her out a bit and it worked!!! She LOVES her toys and bones and when she finally decides to settle in, she prefers to lay next to me! Gidget isn't a big snuggler. . .she prefers to get her rubs and licks on the go! She likes to keep busy most of the time.
Gidget has done GREAT around the Christmas tree and presents! She's had no interest of any it. She was also fabulous around ALL of our company on Christmas Eve and enjoyed meeting everyone and all of the attention! (She does enjoy a good belly rub!!)
I've taken some pictures of her amazing skin! She has all of the beautiful markings of a Chinese Crested and then a light white coat from the Maltese mix. She's really a unique and pretty dog!
Potty training is actually pretty good!!! Gidget has actually only had a couple of accidents, but I always expect that the first couple of days! But she LOVES going outside and staying outside, so it's been really easy to work with her! The treat she gets when she comes in doesn't hurt the training process either!
Gidget has also done very well in her crate! I put her in there every night (Giz & Maddie are also crated) and whenever I leave. So far, no crying or barking while she's in there. . .I think maybe she just enjoys her down time while she's in there!!
