Here’s a couple pictures of Jessie.  She’s doing GREAT and we sure LOVE her!!!!  She’s gained 10 lbs. in the 4 mos. we’ve had her.  (She’s now 8 mos. old)  Now 19 lbs. but still a nice medium-sized dog.  The vet says she’s very healthy. 

Take care!

Jessie is such a good girl! Wow! I was prepared for a tough time settling into her new home, but she’s doing sooooo well!
First of all, she slept the entire way home in her crate.
She has been great about peeing/pooping outside in the cold in new surroundings! She was a little shy in the house but still eager to cuddle and give kisses. She checked out the place, too. She LOVES her crate and sneaks in there all the time.
The kids got to play with her this am, before the girls headed to school and Ben gets her all to himself today! Jessie snuggled with him on the couch this am and took a nap.
We are so happy with our new pup and she is getting lots of love here! Thanks for helping make this match for us!

Thank you so very much for the opportunity to welcome Gabi to her new family! Her and our new kitten Baby, have become the best of friend and especially playmates! She met the rest of the family over Thanksgiving and boy did she soak up the attention! She’s grown fond of picking up socks and t-shirts from the hamper and snuggling with them on her bed! She also has a irreplaceable stuffed teddy bear, which is never too far from her. She is getting use to being potty trained and we can detect the signs of her ready to go. She runs to the door and licks her leash and usually sniffs around on the floor. We try to pay a close mind when she does this, but the accidents happen. But only happen in the kitchen and often in the same spot. She is also learning how to bark, but not quite. She sort of sounds like a motorcycle revving up or a Wookie! She is a little shy when we go for walks, and often times cowers if we walk by a large group of people. She won’t move until she’s picked up and usually they just want to pet her anyway and she warms up and she is ready to be put down and run around! And another one of her adorable traits: when she is on our bed, she doesn’t stand up or go near the edge, so she crawls on her belly and rolls like a log to get up to the pillows or to the foot of the bed! But so far so excellent! I love having a puppy, and it is definitely very hard work, but so very worth it. So thank you again! I attached some photos so you can see how much she has grown in only 2 weeks.
