She's a Sweetheart!
She is an absolute sweetheart. On the way home, I tried getting her to lie in the bed on the seat next to me but she would have nothing to do with it. All she wanted to do was lay on my lap, which she did for the entire 4 hour trip home! She was as calm as could be and just happily lay on my lap without any trouble at all.
When we got home, she explored the house and the front yard but wasn't too interested in exploring the hill in the backyard. She loves anything that grows and pranced about the yard sampling all the flowers and plants. Luckily I have nothing poisonous in my yard or I would definitely have to pull it. Saturday night was my company Christmas party but I decided it would be more fun to stay home and play with her (also I didn't want to leave her alone for even a few hours on her first night). She didn't cry at all the first night (of course she ended up sleeping in bed with me). I figure for the first couple nights, she can sleep in bed. Then I'll move her a little bed on the floor next to my bed.
She is such a crack up. When she gets excited she is very clumsy and falls all over herself. Her brakes don't work too well so if you get running fast enough and stop suddenly, she can't quite slow down quick enough and runs past you head long into the nearest solid object or her front feet stop but not the back feet so she goes tumbling head over heels. Even though puppies are a lot of work, I had forgotten how entertaining they are. Talk about instant stress relief.
It is hysterical watching her try to get the cat to play. The cat is aloof and won't play with her but that doesn't stop her from prancing around the cat barking trying to interest her in playing. I'm thinking it won't be long before they are good friends and can curl up and sleep together.
I took her around town yesterday shopping and visiting friends and family. She loved everyone and everyone loved her...of course everyone loves puppies. She is great in the car and loves to be carried around. I'm sure she will grow fast and I won't be able to carry her for long but for now we are both enjoying it. I started getting her used to a leash yesterday and she did not like that thing at all. I'll ease her into it though and soon she'll love the sight of a leash!
Going to work was real hard for me today; all I wanted to do was stay home and play with the puppy! Luckily Jack will be there until 2:30 PM and I'm going to take off early today so I can be home by 3PM.
I can't tell you how happy I am with her. She is so cute with the sweetest face and disposition. It's going to be a lot of fun watching her grow and training her. She is going to be an awesome dog.
I hope that you & your family are well. I want to thank you again for our precious joy Fabio. He is the love of our lives & the best dog in the World! He weighs more than 16 pounds now & is very smart. He sits, lies down, comes upon command & is working on "hup" for sit up. He enjoys being pulled around the pool on a boogie board & will swim, but is nervous about it & still learning where the pool stairs are located. He has met about 300 strangers & other pups in a socialization program. We have already had to board him for 4 days when we had a volleyball tournament & he did well! (Everybody spoiled him.)
I have decided to keep him with my collie Charlotte at the boarder while we take this next trip. They will have separate quarters, but together time, which both dogs have grown to enjoy. Fabio sleeps next to her & sits under her attempting to kiss her. She is only dominant when he's being a pest by biting or when food is an issue.
I can't describe how much we love him & how very much we will miss him while we're away. He is the friendliest dog I've ever met & is such a good companion. He brings such joy to our family & we want you to know that we appreciate all the time & effort involved by you & your family in breeding such fabulous dogs!
For those who don't know, we got a puppy! His name is
Attached is a little something for your enjoyment.
Thanks again. -Brittney & Delilah LeValley
