Spice Update 11/20/17 - How is she doing?

Spice, being the puppy that she is, loves to play and she plays well. She is outgoing and is typically high energy. Chasing the ball is awesome and she will even bring it back when she is called! She loves toys and shares nicely with the other dogs in her foster family.

So far for car trips she rides in her crate since she is still little. Spice got a little car sick one time, but we're betting she grows out of that. Spice hasn't had any training on the leash as of yet. She knows how to sit and stay and is doing very well with her potty training. Like her sister Sugar, she gets all wiggly and squirmy when being groomed. This doesn't mean she doesn like it. She probably thinks it's play time.

Ideal Home: Her foster mom thinks that Spice would do well in a home with active adults and children and even with other dogs to keep her busy. Since she is just a pup, the family needs to be willing to train her at home and take her to puppy classes so she can learn puppy manners. She is very sweet and loves to play and cuddle.


 Update on Spice: 10/9/17 - Spice is a typical outgoing and energetic puppy. She loves everyone and everything! She's smart and has a little bit of a stubborn side. She quickly learned to sit for treats and how to be very respectful of the giant kitty in her foster home. She loves to run in the yard and chase the big dogs but then is easily distracted by a falling leaf that she insists on tasting.

Spice is the "life of the party" kind of girl. She wants to be right where the action is and if there isn't any action she's happy to create some. She loves attention and lots of belly rubs (when she's tired enough to lay still).


 Sugar and Spice and all things nice, That's what little girls are made of.

Spice and her sister Sugar were a surprise that came two weeks after taking in a stray female named Chiquita. At this point, it's hard to know just what to say about Spice other than "Awwww, what an adorable puppy!" Being only a month old, both she and her sister Sugar sleep the majority of the day away, waking up eat, pee and poo! They are old enough now to thow in a bit of rough and tumble with each other before they nod back off to dreamland.

Even though the breed of baby Spice's daddy is unknown, her Golden mother’s coloring is peeking through. There are gorgeous hints of blonde mixing with that black fur, especially on her legs.  She is bigger than her sister, Sugar, perhaps making Spice the "rough" end of those rough and tumble games they play.

Update on Sugar and Spice: 9/25/17 from Foster Mom

I am back in town and have had THE most amazing pet sitter at the house for the last few days.   Sugar and Spice have grown up at an amazing rate. They are peeing and pooping outside 90% of the time.  No poops in the house for the last 3 days and only pee during the night on the pee-pee pad in their x-pen.  They go out after each meal and before bed time and "perform".
 
They do not bother their mom, Chiquita, for her milk and have had the run of house with supervision from the sitter.  At bed time they go into into their pen.  
 
Interaction with our dog Sherlock has been fine.  He is very sweet natured, as we already knew.   I did hear a growl from him when one of the pups showed an interest in his tennis ball, but that's to be expected from any self-respecting Golden.
 
The change in them between 8 weeks and now coming up on 9 weeks has been incredible.
