Cimarron Cinders

Elaine,

    I hope this finds you well and settling in with your new puppy as I am with mine.  My husband and I have figured out it has been 32 years since we have had a puppy in the house. I am now housebroke and wake up twice during the night to go outside.  Our other dogs have taken to Cindy quite well.  The older terrier was at first quite put out with the new intruder into her private domain,  But now has accepted her completely and they even sleep together at times in the old dog's bed.  Our older ES loved the puppy from the start and looked on her as finally someone to play with.   Cindy has really fit in quite well.   She is confident with all our livestock except the geese.  But geese can be intimidating to even big animals.  She hasn't shown any interest in chasing or barking at the livestock, but she is so young I don't want to encourage her to fail or be mauled by someone.   Everything will come in time.   Right now we are just working on obedience and not eating my shoes.  I hope your puppy is the joy this one is. I'll keep you updated on our progress.

I got a phone call bragging on our Cinders this morning!  At the tender age of 11 weeks Cinders is returning baby goats to their proper pen! 

I want to thank everyone who has had a hand in perpetuating this breeding!  Erin please forward to the Mericles!
 
Cinders is from the second litter linebred to the Dunrovin dogs and is also linebred to Mary's Brighton.

Cindy is learning basic discipline and coming along very nicely.  She is all puppy yet and still enjoys being very silly at times.  Her desire and interest in livestock is very strong and she is becoming more confident with the larger livestock.  I have a hard time( on occasion ) curbing her desire to just chase the sheep.  It's difficult at this age to get her to just "watch them" and" back off", but this will come with age. If there are some tricks or pointers I would appreciate the help  When lambing starts she will begin her real education in dealing with aggressive, protective mama ewes. She is an outside dog now. One of my sons built her a beautiful doghouse.  Its fully insulated, sided in steel and big enough for her and all her cat buddies. She still comes in for treats and special attention but really rather prefers the outside.  She is very smart about the road but yet still does a farm perimeter check with the older shepherd every morning. I will try to be better about keeping you updated.  How are things with your puppy and your life? I also have not filled out her papers and sent them in.  I have some questions,  but will wait until after the holidays to contact you.  We get out of school Fri. for vacation and I'm really looking forward to the break.  Our schedule has been so busy, we are short drivers and the rest of us have had to pick up the slack, which means a couple of athletic trips each week along with the regular route.  I hope you have a very joyous holiday season and are able to be with family. 

 Take care,  Clarene

    But first details of Cindy....she's grown into a small framed dog and really not much of a coat also.  She's a beautiful dog with a very understanding _expression on her face.  She is really just coming into her own personality right now.  She is more aggressive than I ever thought she would be and definitely thinks she rules the farm.  She still bows to the old house terrier but is dominate over the other old shepherd and the rest of the animals.  She will put livestock back in, if someone gets out, or puts it back up against the fence and holds it in the area.  This is for a short time( she loses interest) and then she repens it when she discovers it out again.  We went through a chasing stage but are mostly over this.  There are times though that it is just too much fun to chase the sheep.  She also likes to harass the goats( they don't chase) but she is getting past this puppiness.  She is also getting area protective, she greets strangers with a head down stance and looks like she means business barking very ferociously.  I am quite pleased with this as we wanted a protective dog.  I'll try to get a picture to you soon.  I believe that she came into heat the first week of April. I will watch her closely real soon for signs again although how do you tell without a close exam on these black dogs?  During April she had a real personality change and appeared to be a little swollen.
