Rain Again!

I know this might seen weird to northreners but everytime
it rains here it seems like a blessing.
It rained all morning Saturday. It was wonderful.
Mulan went to play at a friends house and by the time she came
back inside she looked like a chocolate lab not a yellow lab.
I just spent about a hour getting all the mud off her this morning.
She seems to grow by the day.

Ear Infection:(

Mulan's ear might be infected there is quite a bit of
dried blood in it and it looks inflamed.
Luckily she is scheduled to get her rabie shots tommorrow
so we will have the vet look at it then.
I can't beleive she is almost 4 monthes old! She is getting
so big she seems to grow everyday.

It finally rained! It rained steadily all Saturday night
and most of today. We needed the rain so much.
I have finally gotten around to posting some more pictures.
We took Mulan over to Big Sandy,TX for church this weekend.
So the first picture is of her and my mom visiting with one
of the church members. The second picture is of her trying to get
behind the dryer this morning.
The third picture is of her in the bathtub. Mulan got all muddy in
a puddle and we had to rinse her off.
It has been a very restful Sunday which I think we all needed.

Growing Again!

Mulan just continues to grow! She already needs
her new gentle leader to be loosened because it is
getting tight around her muzzle.
This Saturday we will be taking her to Big Sandy with us.
Hopefully she will travel well.
We are now doing the whole walk with her wearing the gentle leader.
We have to use a lot of treats but once she gets going she does well.
Next Monday there will be a orientation for the puppy classes. I am looking
forward to seeing the other puppies in her class:)

Bath Time!

Mulan got another bath today.
We have been in Houston all weekend and she was really dirty.
She is a good little traveler. The car seems to make her
sleepy and she slept the whole four hours to Houston!
I didn't get to visit that much though because she requires
constant care. I love her a lot though.

We Meet a Celebrity!

Last night we were out on what we call a daddy/daughter night where we
go out somewhere after piano with my dad.
We decide to try a new game place called Adventure Landing.
We had a great time minature golfing and playing games.
Towards the end my dad quietly came over to us and whispered "Do you girls know who
Chuck Norris is? I think he is here with his family."
So after walking around and pretending to play some games so we could look at him
we had the courage to go up and ask him.
It was Chuck Norris! He was very polite he lives around Dallas with his family and two kids. We even got a picture with him!

Ok, so I finally got around to posting some pictures.
The first one is a Mulan and me at a friends house. Besides
Mulan and me every single one of those dogs is theirs!
She had a blast playing with them. The next picture is of Mulan and
Mozart. Mozart is a Saint Bernhard puppy and the perfect size for Mulan.
The last picture is of Mulan in her new cape. It is a bit big but much
more official looking then her old one.
Today I have piano lessons so Mulan is going to stay home with my mom.
I will welcome the break even if it is for piano lessons:)

Puppy Classes

Mulan is now officially starting puppy classes on the January the thirtieth.
I am looking forward to seeing how it goes.
We spent a lazy day here just hanging around and enjoying the warm weather.
It hit eighty degrees today!
We received Mulans new puppy cape and gentle leader. These are much more
official looking and have patches on them that say Puppy Raiser Volunteer.
I will have to post a picture of her in them soon.

Mulan played last night with her doggy friends until she dropped.
She loved it! She has been dopey all day from lack of sleep.
We went to Whole Foods and picked up picnic stuff and had a picnic
this afternoon. It was really nice. Even Mulan enjoyed herself.
Afterwards we went to the zoo and shared ice cream. It was a really
nice day.

Second Set of Shots

We took a look at Mulan's shot record today and your surprised to find that
she was suppose to get her second set of shots yesterday!
So today we will take her in to the vet.
She is getting so big that I had to order a medium puppy cape and gentle leader
she had outgrown the small ones. Tommorrow we will take her to play with some
other puppies at a friends house. She loves to be with other dogs:)

The Zoo (sometimes I think we live in one)

We are going to the zoo today with some friends. I can't beleive what a perfect
day it will be for it. It has been sunny and in the 60's and 70's all week.
The CCI does not allow us to take a puppy to the zoo so Mulan will be spending
a afternoon with my dad(he is not very happy about it).
We successfully clipped her nails yesterday! It took three of us. One to stuff the peanut butter in her mouth, one to hold her down, and another to clip her nails. She really dislikes having them done.

Finally Home!

We are finally home from that camp. Mulan loved all the attention people gave
her. She became the official camp mascot!
She remained calm and unharried having forty people petting her every second of the day.
We are finally home to stay for a while now:) Mulan will begin puppy training classes in a week or so. She is growing like a weed. I am posting her 3 month picture compared to her picture the day after we got her. She has grown so much and has started replacing her puppy fat with lean muscle.
One last thing before I go. I looked up the meaning of Mulan and it means "magnolia blossom", I kind of like it.

two months...

three months...

Sorry I couldn't get the photo to rotate.
