Tikva is still small and although she has grown I do not think she will get much bigger than she is now, but has grown and gained more weight than she looks - if that makes sense.  She is just small - and evil!

No cuddle-pup is she, more a bitey-pup and a stubborn little thing.  Very difficult to train but from what I have heard that stubbornness is a Doxie trait.

It was also impossible to take her out until she had had her rabies shot [and was microchipped], both of which she had to have done about 3-4 weeks after her final puppy shots  and the new Vet, Michal, came to give her those - and she then got onto the Local Authority Vet to give the rabies and microchip her.  Private vets can microchip but the LA Vet is responsible for rabies shots, which are registered under my ID number, as is the microchip, and which classes as a dog licence.  

Ram, who always looked after Pereg, has "handed over" Tikva's care to Michal, who he recently employed as a second vet at the surgery.  But I would like Ram to see her, plus I want her weighed on their scales - and I still do not have her medical card as I have not been to collect it.  I just have the dates of all her shots on the computer, plus I have the bar code stickies from her microchip which has to go on her card and on her notes.

Vadim, the LA Vet will have registered the chip number and her rabies shot with the Ministry of Agriculture but it still needs to be on her card and her notes.  And typical of Vadim, as he did with Lexi and then Pereg, does not charge me for either the rabies shot or microchip.  He did once say that he respects responsible owners and there are too few about.  Dogs/bitches that are neutered or spayed get a reduced rate if they have had a current rabies shot and are also chipped, the Min of Ag  subsidising it.

Vadim is not a small animal vet but is in charge of animals [cows for milk] and poultry and eggs for human consumption.  He also has to confirm that any meat products brought into the country are fit for human consumption and are Kasher, but he is responsible for rabies shots.  As far as I know he has a "surgery" for a couple of hours once a month at the LA for people to take their dogs for the rabies shots, but apparently it is rare anyone turns up.    He just turns up here when he has to check on any cows/poultry on the Moshav and I never know when that will be.

Usually it takes me about three telephone calls and then he just turns up.  This time I had not called him - either Ram or Michal did.  But at least I know that Tikki is covered and is legal, which is so important.

Anyhow, even though I take her outside in the front yard it has been, and still is so hot that she will not stay out for more than a few minutes, and no way does she seem to understand that she should pee and poo outside.  

So far she has not met any other dogs but she is fine with people, especially so so with small children who seem to turn up in droves to see her and she lets them pet her and no way will she even show her teeth.

She will not nip or bite them - it is me who she bites!

She is also [self-taught] learning to tell me if someone is at the door, because being hearing impaired I do not always hear if someone knocks.  No bells or knockers here, people rap on the door with their knuckles or just stand outside and yell.

Tikki is hard work.  She drives me nuts at times but what would I do without her?

Tikki Tikva is now 5 months old.  Fully raw fed and although still not very big, weighs 5.30 kilos.

Tikki Tikva is doing fine - still as evil as ever at times but I still love her.  My arms and legs do not though!

I wish I could manage to take a photograph of her standing as so far they all look like she has short Doxie legs.  Yes her front paws have now turned out Doxie style and it is obvious that she is half Doxie, albeit a rather odd shaped one!

Still not a cuddle pup but she is a very happy pup and that is really all that matters.  And she loves going into her night crate now - all I have to say is "bikkie, bed" and she is there in an instant!

Will not pee or poo in her crate even though I line it with a puppy pad.  No, she eeps until I wake to let her out so she can rush through to do whatever on a puppy pad.  And then rushes back into the bedroom and her crate, waiting for another small bikkie and then more sleep.

But she still does not like going outside.  Either for walks or for P&Ps.

She was spayed on 23 November.  Much too young but both Ram and Michal thought it best as she now goes outside by herself on a tether.  She weighed 6 kilos but is very small - just rock solid muscle and bones.

Oh, and she tore off the pj's the first night.

Oh, and she is raw fed.

What she looks like and what she is are two different things!

They often are Juli. Polly can look really sweet snd soppy but on occasion gets a very mischievous look - it's all in the eyes.
