my little girl Autumn! she’s the sweetest little thing, only four months. fairly energetic and needing lots of time getting used to her surroundings. poor girl was frightened first few nights home, however, we stuck through it and I find myself loving her more and more each day. even the exuberant amount of times she’s relieved herself on my carpeting. first week we took her home, Autumn had a UTI and an ear infection. about two months later, Autumn began to throw up violently and was terribly ill. she ate and swallowed 2 socks. i’m not joking when I saw these dogs are chewers. they’re little vacuums, sucking up any little thing they can find. however, a friendly neighborhood vet fixed her up both times. she is very difficult to train considering how young she is and where the mind in a puppy wanders. little things like ‘sit’ and ‘lay down’ are quick and easy, but potty-training, house-training and ‘no’ are all quite hard for her little brain to understand. my older dog, Tucker, is a stunning red Chesapeake mix. he is quite possibly the greatest furry friend i’ve ever found myself caring for. never sick or ill. he’s eleven years old and doing an excellent job training our little Autumn to be just like him. she’ll never be able to replace him, and I see that now as her personality grows everyday. but, I hope she’ll be just as affectionate of a dog as he is. seriously, this breed is so so so loving. please consider the Chesador!
