Finally – a name! Over the weekend we decided upon “Willow.” I think it fits her perfectly.
When we first got her, her ears were all the way down on her face. Each day they come up just a bit. It’s so darned cute!
We are in the process of house-training; no simple task. We’ve already made a lot of mistakes in the almost two weeks we’ve had her, but we are more determined than ever. We keep simplifying things. In the beginning we gave her WAY too much freedom! Now we are settling into a feeding schedule which should help establish a route of sorts. And she has three crates (spoiled, eh?) and two of them with ex-pens attached (thanks to my friend Lisa E who raises Rhodesian Ridgebacks). This gives her just a bit more room, but not enough to get into trouble. We watch her like a hawk – a hungry hawk you might say – so she doesn’t have the opportunity to make mistakes.
