The first blog I ever wrote, other than my "introductory one" was to complain bitterly about the puppy my daughter brought home one day.
As time has gone on and the puppy has been growing up, she has become more and more adorable, watching her learn commands, and getting her used to walking on a lead has been such a treat!
Today, my sister and I had planned to meet down there with the aim of trying her with no lead. At the last moment plans changed, but I decided I would go anyway and went with her on the lead deciding to judge it as I went. Walking along, I bumped into our vet with his dogs and Tigs began playing with them, so I did it. I took the lead off and she was awesome. She played with them and just ran along with me and never was more than 10 ft from me. I wish I had a camera with me, but I didn't even think about it - next time!
It's such a nice feeling to know that we can take the dogs down now and know that they will be fine and have a ball. (Probably not literally - but figuratively!)
I can't believe that if I had really decided to pass this puppy on, that I would have missed out on a loyal and beautiful friend who brings me so much joy.
I can't think of our home without her and Jack in it now.... funny thing that.
(Cannot believe I wrote that much about a dog - my family better not laugh and point at me!)
