Adopting Boo has made me an extra vigilant observer. I don’t know much of what she has been taught, or not taught, and so, with this Extra energy youngster I have learned a few things so far:
She is NOT Gerry-like in many to any ways, and I’m glad for that. He knew I needed anew challenge and character to love and care for. He chose well.
David was introduced to a “family dog” through my family. Gerry was the first dog he ever got to know in a home, and he liked Gerry, and then he Loved him. Since Dave is home most days, he and Boo have their own time together. I love this photo of them I took today, Saturday. They are both asleep (now) as I type this. We’re having a James Bond Film Fest for Christmas 2018. The expression on Boo’s face always shows how she feels…safe, feisty, mellow or sleepy.
David took this on her first morning here. He put it on Facebook, which I don’t ‘do’. She does a lot of staring in an upward position.
Well it’s raining like crazy outside, and it hasn’t turned icy thankfully. Big surprise, Boo wasn’t interested in the rain, but did go down the stairs and do her business. She’s getting used to them well. I say, “Step,” each time there is one (two, turn right, “wait'” four more, “good girl'”. She has gotten to know the door, front steps, the grass to her immediate right, or across the driveway. She’s walked the ‘loop’ around the house, and met one of her dog walkers on Friday. Believe me when I say, she’s been sleeping on the inbetweens. So many things to learn! She has grown to like certain toys better than other and was playing by herself this morning, which was very heartening to see. She doesn’t seem lonely, and she LOVES the sound of David coming into the room. It’s adorable. Gerry was much more mellow. He’d thump the tail, but no body shakes!
