Subject: Delilah


Sorry we have taken so long to update you on Deliliah. She is doing great! She seems to grow over night. She is 2 weeks away from graduating from her first obedience class. She is working on call to come, without a leash in the back yard. So far so good, as long as there is a treat in her future. She still loves a belly rub, and even sleeps on her back at times. She’s also interested in watching animals on TV. She has a best friend- a 9 month German Shepard, who is just about her size. They play until they are forced to nap. Delilah went on a trip to the mountains last weekend. She loved to play, explore, and be lazy on the front porch of the cabin. Attached are some recent pictures. The pictures by the front door and spiral bush are to mark her growth- the first one is a 13 weeks and the second is at 18 weeks. She is funny and sweet, and we love her so much.

Hi Fredericka and Lucy,

We decided on naming puppy Delilah. We are having so much fun with her. She is very smart and picks up on a lot of things quick. She is doing great with house training- I can count on 1 hand the amount of accidents since we’ve had her. She knows her name, and has just begun to walk on a leash- that’s still a little tricky, but we are moving forward. Delilah knows how to sit and is practicing stay. She sure loves to play- our house is like a land mine of toys! She has also done very well meeting new people, she’s always friendly. We have just introduced her to our family’s pets this week. She is not sure what to think of them yet, as they are all grown and bigger than her ( not for long). Lucy, you were right, she loves a belly rub, and sometimes sleeps on her back to expose her belly. She’s curious and always doing what ever we are doing. I’m sending some pictures, we are documenting her growth next to a spiral bush- you will see a picture from the 2nd day we had her and yesterday – a week and a half later. We will keep you posted on her progress. Thank you so much. We are really enjoying her.
