Things are going well with Tess, as I say there has been lots of fun and games, that seems to be what a puppies life is all about, play hard, sleep and eat - oh yes, and grow. She is shooting up just in the short time that we've had her.
During the past week she has been practicing tug with Tommy who thinks it's great fun, and one game can last for quite some time before Tess gets fed up and lets go. She is going after the ball whenever someone throws it and will sometimes fetch it back but that part is probably more luck than anything at the moment.
Today she watch a whole session of Formula One qualifying without being a fidget bum which is quite something, we left getting the beer in to Tommy just for now though.
Also this week I have been getting her used to the harness and lead, she can't go for proper walks yet so we have just been taking a little walk on the grass at the back of the house. It's just to get her used to walking and things around her. I don't find the harness very good for controlling her but the vet said to use it rather than the collar for the time being as it won't hurt her neck with her being so small. She goes okay with the harness as long as she is leading but when I want her to go where I want to go she just lays down, but it's early days so it's okay.
She has also learned to come down the stairs this week which is a bit scary to watch. She also whines in the night, which I take as meaning she wants to go outside. I don't know if that is what she wants by whining but it seems to work so far because we've only had a couple of little accidents at night since we had her. This usually happens around 3 am.

Two tired doggies - I must be doing something right!
