|Emma's favorite toy at my house.|
She is teething with a vengeance today and I decided to stop her lessons around noon and give her as many toys to chew on as I could. She enjoys the soft toys, but needs something a bit more substantial while she brings in her adult teeth. She has a toy from her owners that she enjoys chewing on and found some of Max's toys that have ropes on them, but spent most of the day with Max's Christmas gift, a penguin stuffy that has squeakers in it's feet. For a majority of the day I heard squeaks and head shakes as she played with it. On more than one occasion I was followed through the house with it hanging out of her mouth.

she pilfered the rest from Max's collection.
Tonight was her first puppy class. I had arranged for Walter to watch Max while I was out, but realized this was not an advanced class, but a puppy class and thus Ms. Emma doesn't attend the first class. Instead I had Walter watch her and took Max with me to the class.
Her class is small. There are a total of four puppies in the class, all ranging from 3 months to 6 months of age. A very sweet Chocolate Lab, which was invited to the first class as a demo puppy, a Springer Spaniel and a Rhodesian Ridgeback. It will be a fun class. I am hoping the small class will help Emma focus on the lessons in class, but still give her a nice introduction to other dogs.
Next week Emma will attend her first class. It's a late night class and will leave me exhausted afterward. As much as I enjoy getting Emma's blog updated each day, Tuesday's blog posts will be posted on Wednesday until the class is over.
