annabelle our rescue newf at the river again
« on: July 26, 2008, 08:56:21 am »
Just a picture to update on our great success story
We have had Annabelle for seven weeks now. It seems forever. She has passed the first part of her dog training classes. She now sits,stays,drops,heels,recalls and does off lead quite well. We are very proud of her. She has gained weight and feels about the right body weight now. She seems to have lost her timidity and shyness.No more toileting mistakes. And is back to what we expect of a newf, making friends with everyone.We have done a litle retrieving and she will now hold items in her mouth. I think she was told off for this, because initially she would not put anything in her mouth ???
ANDthe dogs stayed home for the first time( since we have owned Annabelle) inside alone, whilst we went to the movies. And the house survived, a whole five hours;D

 :D ;D ;) :o ;D :D ;) :o
