6-month milestones

6 month old Indie puppy lying on the floor
Bailey at 6 months. Her coat had not gotten full and long like it is now and she looked like an elongated version of her puppy self. That grey pile next to her used to be a stuffed raccoon toy that had recently been hunted.

Behavioural Changes:
