The first 12 hours of Sasha

Probably 13 now πŸ™‚

She has been AMAZING!! We went to bed at about 2am, and we didn’t hear a peep out of her the whole night. She also wasn’t in a pen or crate or anything, she just slept free, on the floor where she wanted to be.

We were all woken at 8.30am by the TV program we’d left on making a really loud noise, so then it was out to the toilet with Pixie and Sasha. Short loop and back home.

Breakfast, some play, lumbering about, and now it looks like it’s time to sleep again!

Pixie has surpassed everything I could have hoped for, and already she is *so* close to playing with Sasha – she really wants to, but is just slightly too nervous still, but I think the first play will be happening very soon πŸ™‚

Sasha is such an amazingly polite puppy. She is very respectful to Pixie, and if Pixie doesn’t respond to her tail wags and maybe a paw wave or two, Sasha will turn away, lie down and sleep or play with a toy. I am amazed.

The cats were released this morning and Sasha was awesome with them. Enzo gave her a hiss initially, but within a few minutes he was lying on his back next to me fast asleep!!

I want to possibly introduce Sasha to Raiden today, but not sure. We’ll certainly be having lots of time where the boys can see and sniff Sasha through a baby gate, but I might go so far as an intro…we’ll see!

So far the absolute worst thing has been lifting Sasha in and out the house…she’s so big, I’m terrified of dropping her! We have some wooden shelves spare from the unit our mice are on, so I might actually try and craft a ramp with them XD

Photos πŸ™‚




She’s eaten meals from her first puzzle feeder, and she loves Nylabones πŸ™‚





So as a recap for our first night – she settled herself, she slept free in the room and she slept without a peep.

Pixie hasn’t barked or huffed at all, she’s only growled that one time, and the cats are both sleeping on furniture within Sasha’s reach too.

Photos, because duh puppy, and she’s flipping beautiful.




Flooooof πŸ™‚ ❀

  1. She is wondrous! Really glad you have her what a stroke of luck finding just the right puppy, it was meant to be! Please keep sharing photos of her I’ve never seen a poodle puppy or even met a standard poodle!

    • Aw thanks, and that’s how we felt too!!! – the one day our friend could drive us to visit puppies this week, a Standard Poodle puppy beccame available who with all health tests and bred to be an assistance dog!!

      I’ll be posting a lot of photos of her, don’t worry πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜›

  2. Oh she is soo beautiful! I love her face, it’s very gentle and kind looking and her colour is lovely! She looks so settled and at home already and I’m glad everything is going well, she just seems like she’s always been part of the family and integrated so well already it’s amazing! What a great pup you’ve found, you totally deserve her and I’m so pleased for you ❀

    • Ah thank you!! She is a really soft gentle little girl, she bounds about all excited and Pixie will go kind of wanting to play. But as soon as Pixie freaks out, Sasha respects her body language and turns away – I don’t know many 12 week old puppies that would do that!!

      Honestly she hasn’t whined ONCE since she has been here. It’s incredible. She sleeps on the floor (not even on her cushion, just the floor!!) and when she wakes she plays, then goes back to sleep after about half an hour. But again…she hasn’t whined ONCE – wth?!!? XD

      Sasha has the most weird coloured eyes too, I really want to cut her face fluff back a little bit (not necessarily shave, just a trim!) so I can see her eyes better hahaha πŸ˜€ They’re a really pale browny colour, I’ll have to try get some pics to show them off πŸ™‚

      Thank you ❀

  3. She is adorable!! So glad you were able to find her. I’m sure she’ll work her way into all your ani-pals hearts. Looking forward to more pix of her. Of course don’t forget Pixie pix too πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you! πŸ˜€ Everyone so far has accepted her impressively readily πŸ˜€ Pixie is so, so close to playing with her, neither of the cats care when she is walking by them or playing near them (she was even lying on Pecan today XD)…Sasha just has the boys to win over now!!

      Oh don’t worry, I’m sure Pixie will still feature in A LOT of pics on the blog XD
