just a quick  note to tell you all how absolutely wonderful and ideal and perfect and lovely and handsome and sweet and funny and caring and perfect and polite and dear and perfect and adorable and loving and perfect this dog really is – cliff has taken a bit of time to warm up here, not to me so much as to some of the “others,” but with each passing day, he seems to realize that he isn’t getting shipped off and he settles in a bit more, becomes more playful, more relaxed, more secure, more alpha.
he sleeps on a rug in my room (where he has collected socks), and he does not move in the morning until  he hears my feet hit the floor…then he comes over and puts his head on my lap.  what a doll!  as for being territorial, he is that.  my beau was here, and cliff had no problem chewing his glasses into little bits – lens and all – it was all taken in good humor, of course – and he seems to take particular joy in mischievous acts of this kind.  he has a definite personality, very, very distinctive.  my 3-year old niece was here last weekend, and she crawled all over him – he just inched his way closer to me, but he never reacted poorly – just let her do it.
he is the DREAM DOG, and i am constantly stopped in public areas and asked about him as he is so handsome (i make sure that i walk him with the leash, of course), and to be honest, he doesn’t really need a leash – he stays right next to me – or runs ahead in the woods and right to me or right in the back of the car when i call.
i adore him (and coming from me, that is saying an awful lot)…thank you.
we all think he is fabulous!
best, phyllis


I’ll have Nora for one month tomorrow
She is make such beautiful progress – slow but beautiful
What a little love she is and she’s gotten so tall – all legs

Every morning she jumps up & places her front paws on my bed & licks me
for 10 minutes until the other bigger dogs take her place
She is so cute

She is still so timid but no longer shakes like when I first brought her
home. She eats very well & is finally playing with the other dogs
The other day she found a peach pit in the yard and ran around tossing
it up in the air and playing with it all by herself.

I still haven’t gotten her to take any food treats from my hand but
she’s starting to get more brazen when I’m giving treats to the others.

I hope someday she’ll come around & be totally like the others.

Just thought you might like to know.
