She is amazing with the crate even though the one we have is so big. The crate you provided us is now her car crate. She just seems to know where to go, using the pads like a champ. We eventually want her to go outside. She's already loving the snow even though it is quite a bit colder here compared to Arkansas, I'm sure. She has a big bladder and seems to be able to hold it much longer than most puppies her age, I am amazed. She cries a little but then calms right down and goes to sleep in her crate at night. I even woke up to make sure she was OK as I was so surprised at how quiet she was.
We just came back from the vet and he gave her a clean bill of health, with a great bite, no heart murmurs etc. Her second shot is on December 29.
She gets along with our cat and our cat seems to really like her--he's very good with dogs.
We were stopped at the border for not having a receipt and then told to go to border patrol. I thought we were going to get searched in a bad way,-haha. They made it seem so scary and bad that we didn't have a receipt for Millie! Felt like criminals smuggling drugs. Thank God, I had the PayPal record with the note that it was payment for a mini schnauzer puppy! We ended up paying import taxes of $248 CDN.
She was the only live animal on the flight from Chicago so that was great. Also, the baggage manager person was so happy and told us puppies are the best part of her job.
She is so responsive, doesn't get startled by loud noises, likes music, and likes to do what we do already. I've already brushed her and she doesn't even bite the brush. She let's us handle her any way. She loves to play and run. She's peed a couple times and pooed. The stool was solid and perfect. Sent it to the vet for testing since it is part of the puppy exam. We did switch over to Acana Small Breed puppy right away and she is having no issues and responds to the kibble like treats! She's snuggled up beside me on the sofa right now. I feel absolute bliss and happiness and all of it feels so right and meant to be.
Out of curiosity, how many puppies were in this litter? Just want to be able to tell more of her story to people who ask about her.
I remember you told me that her other papers were being sent via snail mail? Or were the photo scans all we needed? I think it was the AKC and pedigree you mentioned? Not sure, and due to lack of sleep I'm not really all that lucid.
That's all I can think of for now to tell you, I hope this email isn't too long. I am so grateful to you for providing us everything we need so thoroughly and clearly. I remember as well that the United rep mentioned that she was sent with toys and blankets in her crate which she has never seen before. I just said that it's probably because you are such an excellent breeder and that your puppies are always exceptional :).
Thank you so much, hope all is going well, much love.
