Puppy Play Time

Happy Tuesday to you! This weekend we puppy sat Copper and Lily for the day, while his family was running and playing in the mud. She did so well for being just 5 months old; I wasn't sure how she do with the family gone, but I got her out right away and took her on a 2.45 mile walk. She responds so quickly with her new harness that prevents her from pulling. I had thought about getting Hunter one, but with his quick pace it keeps me walking fast-so not sure I want to stop that. As hubby and I ate, Copper gave me big "doe eyes" and a look that pleaded with me to feed her. I didn't, though it was tempting. For those dog bloggers I think you'd agree that she looks just like Wilhelmina.  It also looks like she is smiling at me.
I wanted to get some pics of her size to send to Wilhelmina's owner Sophie, so that we could compare  their sizes. Wilhelmina is two months older than Copper, but it is amazing how much they look alike; it's got me wondering if there are some common blood lines since Red Standard Poodles are very rare.
I wanted to get her picture with Lily so we  could compare the size.  I'm wondering how tall Copper will be at maturity.

We are trying to get Copper used to being here without the family because in the fall they will be going on vacation and both Lily and Copper will be with us. Of course, by then Copper will have at least four months of obedience training.  She is one of the sweetest pups I've ever been around and is so eager to please; truly she is a love.
I'm off to walk this morning and then after lunch have some pampering(you know the old adage about while the cats away, the mice will play-it rings true for me)and later I'm going out to dinner with two girlfriends.
I hope you have something in your day that brings you a big smile!
Joy to  you.
