Willow was adopted in March, 2014. Her new family writes, "Sheís doing great! Yesterday I was away from email, since we had an appointment for Jon in the morning. Sunday she got a lot of play time with Jon and a friend outside, and met some of the dogs in our neighborhood. She managed to sneak a brief nap in Melís chair, and snuggled into Jonís bed in the evening. Yesterday, we came back from the appointment and took her for a ride to take Jon to school. She did well in the car, and met out vet tech when we dropped off her records for copying. She rode in Melís truck later, and did well there too. There have been no potty incidents, and sheís coming well when called. Itís been a great couple of days for all of us."


Willow is already doing wonderful. She's quite a wonderful, sweet girl. I introcued her to my dogs yesterday and they are already playing and cuddling with each other. That took all of 2 minutes before they all went back to normal, like nothing had changed and she was always there.

Willow is already learning to like her crate or at least to know there's some yummy treats hidden in there. She's very playful and a very well balanced temperament. The main challenge with her will be her separation issues. She hates to be left alone, though she does calm down a fter a few minutes. She pretty much wants to follow you wherever you go. We'll see how her real temperament and character comes out over the next couple of weeks, but that's my main interest to work on now. She's potty trained as far as we can tell and she already has decent responses already to sits and downs. She'll need to learn recalls and stays, but who doesn't :)
