New here, from Australia was created by Woorarra
Good morning eve one!

Just thought I'd make an introductory post quickly before perusing the other threads.

My husband and I were recently acquired by Daisy, now 11 week old DH pup. She is just adorable! I suspect she's not 100% DH as her coat markings are somewhat off (white socks, white chest and bell, white blaze down nose), but aside from that displays true DH traits! She plays hard, but I can tell she is going to excel in Couch Potato-ing! Hahaha. She's a delight - well the Staffy (nearly 10) thinks she's a pesky little brat, but what little sister isn't a pain?

She's extremely smart, already knows sit, bed, and no - although tests limits. We're still working on housebreaking. Poo's are no problem, but morning piddles are still problematic. Fortunately she seems to prefer to use an old carpet remnant we have in the mudroom that we just use to cut down on tracked in dirt so I can deal with that. She's up quite early playing and most mornings seem to have JUST missed the opportunity to get her outside before she goes. Well....I guess I just need to get up earlier!

Anyway, that's about it for now. Hope everyone had a great Christmas and is looking forward to a happy new year. We had Daidy so Christmas was extra good this year! Santa Paws visited the doggies, and Santa Claws the cats!

Looking forward to exchanging posts with everyone!

Cheers!
Woorarra

I think I've read just about everything I can on this breed, and am so keen to watch her grow

I tried to post a pic earlier - also tried to make her pic my avatar but it would even let me try to load it. Doing all this from iPad so hopefully get it sorted out.

Thanks form the welcome y'all (I'm a native Kentuckian in Oz)! dh:)

Happy New Year!

Hi Teratyke,

we just got our laptop back, so will be trying with that now. Just have to move the pics to the external hard drive first. Finding time has been hard this past week what with Christmas and New Years. :). But thank you, and if I still have trouble I will take you up on the offer.

Hi Jacobite,

We are in South Gippsland, by Wilson's Prom. Just outside Foster. Although I work in Bundoora through the week; hubby is home on the farm with "the kids" during that time. Maybe we can organize some play dates! Daisy would be rapt I think. Shes still not sure how to take the Staffy's play methods (run Round in crash bandit mode and do this fly-by growl-ish nip-like thing). Daisy in turn comes running to me, doing that ARR-ARR-ARRR thing (I guess she's telling on her big sister? Lol)

Cheers!

Hi, sorry to have taken so long to get back to you. Yes it would be fun to get together and let the dogs play perhaps we arrange something when the weather cools down and the dogs can enjoy it.
