This past week and weekend I spent most of my time with Dulcinea. Christian was helping out with an family activity that his work put on for the kids and so he was quite busy all week. He was also at work all day on Saturday for the actual event. So it was me a Dulcinea. Mommy and daughter.
It's surprising that we've only had her for 1 week today. I feel like it has been forever already, but nope--only 7 days. We already expect so much out of her, the poor thing, but we are realizing that she won't be trained over night. We were giving her tap water in her bowl and noticed that she didn't like to drink it. So we would wet her food each time she ate so that she would get some water at least. Then we decided to give her some mineral water (sin gas, of course) to see if she'd drink it and guess what? She loves it. Christian's reaction: "OMG, she's so cuica!". (For those of you who don't speak Chilean, cuica is like stuck-up or richy-rich, someone who always has to have the best of everything.)
Well, we can't really do anything about it, but give her the water she likes. But it really makes me wonder what is in the tap water that even a dog won't drink it. Maybe I should stop drinking it?! We could look into getting a filter for the water...
Today, we put on her harness and had her first lesson of walking on the leash. Since she can't go outside yet (doesn't have all her shots and I def don't want her to get sick from all those stray dogs in Santiago), we decided to practice in the hallway of our apartment floor. Here are some candid pictures, thanks to Christian B Photography, of the little one getting her walk on. She did surprisingly well, probably because "treats" were involved in the process. But that is how they learn. Anyway, her treats are just her food. Now on to the pics:
