Pupdate – Week 17

17 Weeks, 1 Day Today, Epic went to the groomer all by herself! It’s the first time I have left her for a time without being in the vicinity.

Pupdate – Week 12

12 Weeks, 1 Day Weight: 11.8kg (26lbs) Today our puppy adventure involved a trip to a vet clinic – our very own vet clinic. Although Epic has been to the clinic, I like to take her frequently for low stress visits. A weekly visit for a weigh-in to monitor her weight is perfect and theContinue reading “Pupdate – Week 12”
