The litter we have first choice of a female Blue Merle Aussie is supposed to be born in Mid-late October. If it works out, Sasha will be a part of that group of puppies. (if there is no female Blue Merle we shifted whch litter we want to Springtime due to schedule conflicts for Shelley and I).
So, it’s time to finish up any last minute major prep for her arrival. One thing we’ve gotten used to is having our dogs get on the bed with us. But its always tough when they get older to watch them. They get up okay (most times) but getting down they whine when they know their legs aren’t sturdy enough to handle the landing of their full weight.
We will train Sasha from a young age to use steps to get up on the bed. The assembled steps are below. I still need to paint and put carpet on them.
