Kenna of the Bells

Dum du da dum

So, Alicia and I got this dog, Kenna, and she's awesome. She is an AKC English Mastiff, and she's awesome! We love her very much. Not only that, but she's gonne be HUGE! :)

So obviously, with such a large dog, training is going to be key. We have started with potty training, as we find that very important. We have read on the internet about people teaching their dogs to ring some bells when they need to go potty. So we decided to give that a try. We put some bells on the door Wednesday of last week, and starting making her brush her nose against them when we took her out.

Then, yesterday afternoon (only four days later!!!) as we were in the kitchen cooking, we heard the bells jingle! Hallelujah! We let the dog out, and she went pee! We honestly thought this was a fluke until a few minutes later when she did it AGAIN!

I don't think we are completely out of the water yet, but we are off to a good start! :)

Anyway, check out the pictures of our new girl. She's pretty cool...
