Pepsi Day - 10 and a half weeks

Well, its that time of the week again, time for a Princess Pepsi update. On Friday she had her last jab at the vet, the vet really had to concentrate to pick up her very slight heart murmur and he's asked me to go back in 6 weeks so he can check it again - its apparently very common in all puppies so he's not concerned at the moment.
She's eating really well now and I've completely cut out the silly parts of her diet that I inherited from the breeder. Now, I'm not criticising the breeder at all, she has far more experience than me, but I didn't want to spend the next 15 years making scrambled egg every morning and giving her rice pudding in the afternoon, or even cooking chicken, mince or pasta every day either. So she's now completely fed Baker's Puppy food, with just a splash of milk at supper time.
She's still in the kitchen  over night, am so proud of myself for not letting her through to our bedroom, and she's quite happy - absolutely no crying.
She poops and pees quite merrily outside, the only accidents are when we aren't quick enough to get her on the lead and outside.
And Ziggy is definitely mellowing to her. Ziggy is one of our cats, he's 2 years old and quarter ragdoll so he's pretty laid back really. He puts up with Pepsi jumping on his back and playing round him - he's not so keen when she nips him though, but all he does is lift his paw to give her a warning smack - his claws are retracted so he's not being nasty. And when he's had enough of her he just jumps out of her reach.
So, I'll stop yapping and just let you see the pics and video


The vids...

Hi Debbi,
She is so cute, gorgeous, cuddly - a proper princess. Don't worry about the heart murmer, all our cavvies have had one but they lived long active lives - it is a characteristic of the breed.

Debbi, Pepsi is gorgeous, how can a breeder feed a dog on human food, she should know better.

ROFL at your second video clip, not the pup but Graham in the background persuading the kids to behave and have their tea. Just sounds like our house (without the accent though) especially when he tells then they need to separate to eat. I often put one in the dining room and one in the kitchen...it is the only way to get some peace!
