Raising a Puppy: Mia the Blue-Nose American Bully Pit—22 weeks old

A day in the life with Mia the American Bully (Bully Pit) puppy. Mia's sixteenth week—22 weeks old, 43 pounds, 17 inches from the ground to the highest point of the shoulders (the withers).

Good Manners

Mia is starting to understand that she is not to push ahead into the house when we are all walking in together. I had reached for the doorknob when Mia stepped up on the front step to rush inside. Before I opened the door I looked down. Mia quickly pulled her paw off the step and looked up at me as if to say, “oops.” I opened the door and she walked in a step behind me. Good girl, Mia

People Lover

Mia is very affectionate. If you sit down on the floor chances are she will come over and lie down next to you. She's not overbearing with excitement. She will simply snuggle in for a pack nap.

A little later Amie and Sara were hanging out in the driveway when Mia came over to hang with them. Sugar, the cat, decided to join in as well.

It was a little too chilly outside for her to enjoy getting wet, so she has fun chasing the water back and forth.

The Horses

The horses were not in their normal spot. Instead, they were in the yard around the house. Mia walked out the front door and started barking like a guard dog. "Woof, woof, woof, woof!" As she ran towards them in her squared up stance. Her eyes are not great and she didn't know what they were. "Mia, leave it!"

Mia stopped and turned to look at me. She looked back at the horses. Oh it's those things...

She lowered her head and wagged her tail as she scooped up a clump of dirt from the ground. "Woooooooo, wooooooo" Her tail was wagging and her body swaying. Mia brought them a gift instead of sending them away.

Mia seems to have very good doggie manners. She allows herself to be sniffed and does not try and dominate the play.

Puppy No-No's

A stone walkway with dirt on it. There is a broom pushing the dirt to the grass.

Looks like there was some puppy-fun going on here. Could this be why they all came in with dirt all over their noses and paws the day before? For the past two years I had tossed the rotting pumpkins that were out on the porch in this spot after the fall season and pumpkin vines actually grew come spring. Looks like that will not be happening this year.

Mia! There are a lot of folks out there who will not be happy that you are chewing on a Penn State rug! Spit that out!
