Making some headway

Well, the last 24 hours have seen some improvement in Lola's "lucifer" tendencies.  Last night we worked hard all evening on the "drop it" command.  She responded well with treats and tons of positive praise.  

 
She now will bring me a toy, drop it, step back and sit and not lunge at my hands.  Yay!  She has not bit me all day! 

She's curious and nosy.  She loves looking out the door and making sure everything is OK :). She likes to keep an eye on the neighborhood. Mostly to make sure no other dog dares step on her lawn.  


She's not a fan of being "in jail" but these baby gates have been a lifesaver for my sanity.  This is her "poor me" routine


We were at the vet after work and she got her next 2 needles so tonight she isn't too lively.  Kind of a treat for me, because I got a few minutes to check a few blogs.  I will get back to your blogs eventually.  Little Lola is still very demanding but we are making progress.

  1. I'm reminded of that song from past years - "Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets...":-) I had faith that you would persevere and take control of all this enthusiasm! Way to go! xo Nellie

  3. I love that picture of her looking out the window. What a cutie pie.
    I bet she is fun though.

  4. You're probably too young to remember the 50's vamp song 'Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets' from the movie Damn Yankees. I think your little lady has that kind of attitude!
    She seems like a smart little darling and a quick learner. The former owner did a bad thing by letting her use his hands as a chew toy. That is a big no-no! Glad you are redirecting her to real toys.

  5. What great news to read!!! She is one smart pup but her mom is smarter. You two will be best of friends soon and she will be a joy to be around. Sad the previous male owner trained her badly but at least with his confession you were able to know she really wasn't demonic.

  6. Oh, the joys of puppyhood. But at least Lola doesn't give that awful eye roll when you ask to do something. But I am so glad you two are getting along and you will soon have a sweet little companion to sit at your feet..

  13. So glad that Lola isn't getting what Lola wants. You're making good progress...keep it up! Tag promises to not share his 'wake up now, Mom...even if it is very early!' trick.
