Murphy’s puppy coat is soft and slightly woolen. This pic was taken a few weeks ago, and you can see the coat. But judging from huge amounts of black fuzzballs all over my house, she is losing her puppy coat and I’m starting to see some waviness in hear coat. I wonder how long it will be before she has her sleek adult coat?

She has barked like crazy the last 2-3 days, embracing her natural talent of being disruptive. I wasn’t happy with her last night – I let her out to walk, and she came right in and peed on my carpet right in front of me. I already have her on a dog cranberry supplement, and trained to ring bells when she has to go potty, so I’m concerned with her inconsistent housebreaking progress.
