"Erma is almost 6 months old and weighs just under 40 pounds. Potty trained in less than 2 weeks. She absolutely loves kids. She has the coloring of a Bernice Mtn dog, but built, hair and face like a poodle, which we really like.
She did swallow a stone, and we had to take her to a vet hospital in Akron (MedVet), but the stone moved through her intestines, they sent her home after 24 hours and she passed the stone at home. We do have an issue with Pika, but she is learning. She learned our invisible fence in basically one training session.
We train her every day and she will not go near the flags.......she is super intelligent. She is a good car rider and we hope to take her RVing, as we are introducing that to her currently. She sleeps 8 hours a night, in our bed of course. She is pretty good on the grooming table, but we will continue to work with her. She is a highly active, alert, and sweet girl. "

"Our puppy, Erma, is doing fantastic. She has adapted well, "growing like a weed", loves kids, is a week without an accident in the house, and is an absolute joy!! She scratches the door to go out, and all with little to no crate training. We do use a crate if we go away for a few hours, but otherwise she hates it at night and wants to be with us. We like a clean shaved face, which she tolerates quite well, as well as her baths (2 so far). She is eating about a cup and 1/4 to 1/2, 3 times a day. Takes her vitamin and responds well to training. She is getting car rides to get use to it, as well as has been introduced to our RV. We even took her to the horse barn where we keep Barb's show horse, and did exceptionally well. I hope you enjoy the update! I included a picture of Erma with one of our grandchildren (Aubrie)"
