Default Introducing Kaylee

So, we brought home an eight week old pup about two hours ago.. hehe.
It wasn't exactly an impulsive decision, because my mom and stepdad had spoken about it before. Though, we saw her in the pet shop yesterday, and came to pick her up this morning. >.>
Kaylee a very adorable Bouvier Bernois (Don't know if there is an English translation). The cats so far have been skeptical, hehe, though Graffiti has been more willing to approach her.

Dog whisperer? 'Fraid I haven't heard of that one.

She's already very attached to my mom and follows her around everywhere. She's a sweet little pup, and we're sure that she's going to grow up to be very friendly and people-loving. ^^ Lol, my stepdad doesn't even know that we bought her.. he's going to be coming home from a business trip to a new member of the family.

Thank you, WingedCat! ^^ She's being so loving already, and I have the feeling she isn't going to be too hard to house break.
Oh, we finally found out the English translation of her breed, which is Bernese mountain dog.

Absolutely adorable!!!!

About the dog whisperer..here is his philosophy. I have been through dog
training and back, but this guy has it figured out!

If you have broadband and want to download some of his shows I taped
from the TV, let me know and I PM you the link!!!!

Since I follow his ideas my dogs have changed and are happier, and so
am I! Especially the big dogs.

In the wild, a dog's very survival depends on a strong, stable and
organized pack, where every member knows its place and follows the
rules established by the pack leader. The pack instinct is perhaps
the strongest natural motivator for a dog.

Cesar Millan teaches that, in order to properly fulfill both our dogs and ourselves, we need to become our canine's calm, assertive pack leaders. A dog that doesn't trust it's human to be a good pack leader becomes unbalanced and often exhibits unwanted or anti-social behaviors.

Cesar does not "train" dogs in the sense of teaching them commands like "sit, stay, come, heel," - he rehabilitates unbalanced dogs and helps "re-train" their owners to better understand how to see the world through a dog's eyes.

Cesar counsels people to calmly, assertively, and consistently give their dogs rules, boundaries and limitations to establish themselves as solid pack leaders and to help correct and control unwanted behavior. He doesn't believe in "quick fixes," even though changing some behaviors can appear to happen in a relatively short period of time. None of those changes will "stick," however, unless the human acts consistently with his/her dog every day to keep unwanted behaviors from returning. In Cesar's opinion, no one should ever hit or yell at a dog to correct unwanted behavior.


And here is a link to a bunch of his articles:

I will definately get my mother to read Cesar Milan's articles, since she is going to the one spending the most time with Kaylee. I read some of them, and I can see why his instruction would pretty much work the best.

What a beautiful puppy. I believe he will grow to be quite a large dog. I saw one recently and although quite young, he was huge.

Yeah,Kaylee's gonna be between 88-98 pounds. She's 9 weeks now, and she's about the size of my friend's full-grown Pomeranian. X.x She will fill the house when she's full grown, but that's exactly what we wanted!
Not to mention, our 'Beware of Dog' sign that has been up since the dawn of time will finally have a use, hehe.

Yeah! I like my dogs big too and my cats small!!

Olliver, my Great Dane, is 9 months old now and weighs 120 lbs. His daddy
weighed 190 lbs. I hope Olliver gets this big. The only problem is that he is
so not aware of his size whatsoever...outch lolol.
