We're getting along very well with our new puppy. By the way, we changed her name on her second day here to Gila. That's a hard "G" sound and rhymes with Mila (as in Mulroney). It's an Indonesian word that means crazy; it's just easier to say than Pud and doesn't sound like anything else. It really suits her and she responds well to it.
It took her a few days to really warm up to us, but now she's happy and friendly. We can tell she's very smart. She learned the commands come, sit and rollover very quickly, and will down from the sitting position with a little help. Her natural retrieving ablilities were well developed from the start. Already she weighs twenty pounds.
Had to take her to the vet last week because she had a yeast infection in her ears. That's clearing up nicely.
Thought you might like these photos taken on Mar 6 & 16. It's difficult to get a good photo of a moving object! Hope you like them.
