The difference between Zeki and Kizzy are now very apparent and it isn't just in their looks. Kizzy is a very very polite sheltie; Zeki by contrast is rather a rude sheltie! She is absolutely adorable but she is quite a handful compared with her sister.
Kizzy doesn't bark much; Zeki is very noisy when there is action, i.e. going for her walk, playing etc.
Kizzy never pulls on her lead; Zeki pulls like a demon and wears a harness which has little or no effect other than stopping her choking.
Kizzy trots at my heels for most of her walk; Zeki is a trail blazer and is always out front with Murphy or Niamh
Kizzy never bullies the other dogs; Zeki is a little tyrant and tells everyone off, in fact she's just started charging at Kizzy so we're going to have a few words about this!
Kizzy is perfect; Zeki isn't quite perfect - yet!
I have done quite a bit lately to quieten her as we walk across the recreation ground and out to the fields. She was screaming with excitement so I spent quite a bit of time just halting until she stopped barking and sat still and then she could progress again. She learned very quickly that she didn't get what she wanted by barking. Now I usually only have to do this once as we get out of the car and she walks (well pulls me) quietly across the rec'. I have yet to solve the problem of her screaming when we arrive at the car park. Pound for pound she is as wild as Naughty Niamh. It must by me but then Poppy is perfect so maybe it's just that I've now got two very NAUGHTY dogs!
Here are some pictures of our recent walks:
