Thought I would send you a quick update with a few pictures of Amarula, who now goes as Buffy. She's 4 and half months now, and is tipping the scale at 20lbs. Not the wee one we brought home, though she still likes to be held and is convinced she's a lap dog. She's doing amazingly well, and has settled in better than we could expect. She has made fast friends with my youngest cat, they wrestle and chase after each other daily. Buffy and my older cat have a game of psychological warfare going on right now, I'm not sure who'll win as she's bigger than him already but doesn't seem to know it.
Although I was a little worried about how well she would get along with my two other dogs Jetson and Ta'i, she has become best buddies with them and usually prefers their company to mine. (especially when she knows tha I am leaving.) I started training classes with her at PetSmart, and she is by far the star pupil. She is smart, attentive and eager to please. Her vet, Dr. Stelfox thinks she's a fabulous little puppy and aside from a few minor problems at the beginning is nice and healthy and growing like a weed.
After the loss of my dog 2 summers ago I didn't think it was possible for me to become so attached to a dog again. I was VERY wrong. Buffy has consumed me and my world revolves around her. She is the addition to our household that seems to belong. Thank you so much for allowing us to bring such a sweetheart into our life. I will keep you updated as she grows. She's going to be one beautiful dog.
