eighteen weeks

Is it possible to resist a puppy when her head is cocked to one side? McKinlee is now 18 weeks old (as near as we can tell), and is looking less and less like a puppy. The typically rounded puppy features on her face are morphing into more clearly defined characteristics, and her legs are growing longer and stronger. She can sleep through the night without the need for relief, although that accomplishment is not yet consistent. She likes to snuggle between our pillows at night where one or the other of us is as near as an outstretched paw. And she likes to love all over you and lick your face. And bite my nose! Now to get the yard reflagged and her trained to the invisible fence, and she will be very happy to have the freedom to run around the yard, chasing after Rigel and trying to convince Juliet that the new arrival is worthy of the matriarch's approval. It's good to have this young life keep these aging ones on our toes.

An Invisible Fence is a good idea if you want to keep your dog safe.
I love my wireless dog fence because I never have to worry about fixing broken wires. A Wireless Pet Fence is a good option for pet containment.
