Day 46 – May 22, 2023
Today, Chai and Game got to go to Las Islas at the UNAM campus and met quite a few dogs:
Game and Chai are meeting new folks at Las Islas.
Chai also had a solo adventure: we rode the scary elevator once and she joined me at the bank and on a loop through the Walmart corridor in her puppy backpack.
Finally, we practiced walking past the Pits. Chai is getting better and better at anticipating her treats rather than having intense feelings about the barking dogs! Go puppy!
If Chai keeps going at this rate, she’s going to turn Game into a dog/dog snuggler!
Not much to report otherwise and I didn’t take any video – so today’s update is a short one. Stay tuned for more (and more exciting) Border Collie puppy adventures!
Day 47 – May 23, 2023
Another update on the shorter end today!
+ Husbandry: “Brush!” Chai keeps being a great sport about husbandry!
+ Chai and I went to Parque Ecológico Huayamilpas where she met a few dogs and walked on a metal-grid staircase like a pro. Only downside: she gave two brief barks at suddenly appearing people after we had hung out at a particular spot for a while. This is the first time I’ve seen this behavior in her – I’ll be sure to nip it in the bud by coming back to the same spot later this week! She also pooped outside not just once, but TWICE! This is rare and amazing and clearly facilitated by us hanging out in the same spot for a longer period of time.
What looks like a lake on the map is actually all dried out. No swims for puppies! Sad face.
Huayamilpas, an ecological park that’s part of the Coyoacán neighborhood.
+ She walked through a new street market and did really well.
+ Today’s adventure included two Uber rides. For the second one, her belly was full of all the treats (kibble) she had earned along the way – and she did perfectly fine! No throwing up! Go puppy!
Back home and ready to snuggle away the rest of the day with big sister Game!
