Emma is now thirteen weeks old. The last two weeks have been very busy. Someone asked if she was trained yet, and I'd say at least one of is as I take her out every two hours.
She is proving to be quite the escape artist. I have a puppy gate blocking the entrance to the living room. It is held in place by the piano and a chair. . . so far so good. I had another lower puppy gate blocking the entrance into the dining room, but that didn't last long. I tried a higher piece of plywood behind the puppy gate. . . no good. Next I tried the plywood with a chair against it on the other side and the toy box in front of it in the kitchen. Secure. . . not even close. I was in the living room the other day practicing my flute when I glanced down and saw her right beside me! She had moved the toy box which is a wooden crate aside, pushed against the plywood, and somehow wiggled through a ridiculously narrow opening. She repeated this maneuver a couple of times over the course of the next day or two. There are now two dining room chairs against the plywood. Will that hold her? I think so, but I'm not counting on it. :-)
