Bella has been an angel the last two weeks. We have had only one accident in five weeks, she is now happy to sit on her own in her basket in the kitchen for a while, there have even been times where I completely forgot I had her ( in a good way).

Today my loopy puppy returned. Whilst on a walk she met a bulldog named hectar, she then ran off with him into a nearby cottage, his owner said they often give treats, she came back when I called but I can't believe she followed him into someone's house!!!

She can nearly jump over the baby gate and manages to jump onto the trampoline which the kids find funny.

Also she is more energetic than I ever expected. I was worried that if I got a small dog it wouldn't want to walk too far. When Bella first started walking she would cry at my feet, now doesn't want to stop. Yesterday we walked for miles and she loves it.

Anyway, I think things are improving. We probably have 50% ok days, 25% amazing days, 20% bad days and 5% days where I just want to sit in a corner rocking!

When I got her from her breeder, I was told that a couple had reserved her at first and wanted her for agility, they pulled out at the last minute. But I think she would have been amazing, so I think I may enrol her in agility training when she is Old enough. I know puppies need to be careful with their joints, but I think he will be great.

Oh, also continuing my search for a food that suits Bella I came across a brand named heights farm feeds. I gave them a ring today and the man who owns and runs the family business was amazing, he had so much time to speak to me and recommended salmon and potato kibble, of which he has sent me a taster pack. I found them on a reviews website on which they had 100% five star reviews of the food. I can't wait for it to arrive and see what princess Bella thinks.

What breed is Bella? And how old is she?

I had a terrible day, ruby constantly chewed and tried to play tug with her lead, then I stupidity let her off lead and she chased a child. The child ran for her life screaming which just egged ruby on even more. I had 3 hours sleep last night so I'm an emotional wreck

It doesn't sound horrible at all. I think we have this lovely idea of how a puppy will complete our family yet in reality it is a lot of hard work. But as someone said to me if it's hard work it means your putting the effort in to do it right and it will pay off.

I can't tell you how many times I felt totally desperate, your world has been turned upside down and you don't know when it's going to or if it is even going to get easier.

We still have many bad days, but also good ones and she is only a month older than ruby. I sometimes see the amazing dog Bella will become and I can't wait.

She does still bite a little on her skin, not always the same place. I think the new food, burns puppy, has made a huge difference.

I was going to get burns, but couldn't find the puppy version anywhere, so went for wainrights. Where do you get your food from? X

I get it online I think they stock it on various shops. Check out heights farm too, I wish I had found that first it looks amazing. I will give burns a few more weeks and see, she is doing ok on it but sometimes her poop is loose and her tear stains seem to have got worse, I am keeping an eye on the scratching too. When I spoke to the guy at heights farm he was really nice and suggested trying poultry and grain free food. They make salmon and potato, which sound yummy. X
