John & Stacy (And Petra!)
Just wanted to give you a little update on Petra (Lulu) and I've attached some photos for you. I can't begin to tell you how happy we are with Petra! She is such a well manned, happy puppy. House training went extremely well and she took to it very quickly. We will be taking her to her 3rd puppy class later today. After being a bit shy the first night, she is now doing very well and is friendly but polite with the other dogs. She's pretty much figured out 'Sit' but still can't quite get the hang of 'down'. She's doing pretty well with 'Come.' It will take time, I'm sure, but she's always so happy to please. Plus, the treats don't hurt! We took her to the vet for the next round of vaccinations, and everything went well. Petra is already over 16 lbs and growing fast! The transition to the 'large breed puppy' Nutrisource dog food went well and she loves it. We've signed her up for a preventative health plan and she'll be going in for another check up and weigh in on Feb. 3rd. Petra's favorite toy is a long rope make from knotted up old t-shirts. She loves to chase it and play a friendly game of tug. She also loves her chew raccoon. She's been a champ in crate training and she now sleeps all night long without any potty breaks. Petra is also learning to enjoy the great outdoors. We often play in the deep snow in the park across the street. John and I took Petra on her first short hike as well! All in all, I just wanted to let you know that she is doing great and we couldn't be happier. Thank you so much!
