I promise not to update you every week, but I just wanted to let you know how LadyBird did for her first full week:) We are still having problems with her chasing the cats ( I really think a home without cats would be best for her) There are times when she walks around almost hunting for them. I don't think she would ever hurt them, but she is so interested and doesn't understand that they don't like her:) She and Diesel have started to wrestle and play tug. In fact last night Diesel had to push her away when he had had enough- she still wanted to play.
We took them to the beach today and she did well. At first she was barking at every dog that came our way, but with a stern shh she firgured that like cars she doesn't need to bark at all of them. I tried to keep most dogs away from her, but there were many dogs off leash that came our way. She didn't have a problem with any of them. A small beagle was one of them. I'm sure that doesn't mean she likes all dogs, but she never lunged or growled at any of them. We only stayed about a half hour, but she was already much better by the time we left. She also hasn't made one mistake in the house, and lets us know when she needs to go out.
I think that's it. I attached a few pictures just so you would see that she is doing okay. She loves laying in the sun! Any word on adopters yet?
Thanks for all your help and suggestions
