A friend told me that puppies need playmates and the best playmates are actually either their siblings or puppies of  their age as they learn things from playing among themselves.

My biggest problem now is little Eva doesn't have any siblings to play with as she is the only child of Hana. In the beginning, I thought Mika and Laura could be her playmates even though one is a bit old and another one is an adult dog but I was completely wrong. Both of them are not interested in playing with little Eva at all no matter how hard we've tried to let them stay together. Furthermore, the dogs that all my neighbours have are adults.

Poor little soul, except playing with her mummy Hana, she can only play with me and my hubby now.

Will my Eva become an 'anti-social'?

Ah! What a cutie! Don't worry about Eva. My first litter was a singleton puppy, he finds his way to socialise and learn from his mother and my other adult shelties.

Let Eva get on with it, normally a singleton puppy is a very strong puppy. When she is old enough, then get her out to socialise with other puppies.

Where do you live in Malaysia?

Thanks, Lian. It's a relief to know that it's alright for being a singleton puppy.

I live in Kuala Lumpur.

I agree with Lian. Eva will learn so much from the elders. When she is old enough, and goes to her puppy class, she will get some play time.

Hi Priscilla,

KL? Great! When I go back to visit my family, we can meet up? Can't wait to meet Eva!

Hi Lian

Please come. It's lovely that we can meet up. I always admire your shelties and those beautiful pictures. My daughter told me that it's freezing but the snow is really beautiful in London. How often do you come to KL?
