It's Muffy/Josie time!!

We're calling this girl Josie because Muffy just doesn't fit. Josie is definitely on the shy side, but opens up more each day. She is learning to love pets more each day. Snuggling hasn't come yet, but I think she'll come around. What she loves most is to snuggle up on the dog bed and collect toys. She is learning that she has to share the toys and is getting along really well with our two dogs.

Potty training is going great. Getting Josie on a schedule has suited her best. She goes right away and is very proud. Waiting for her to tell you she has to go will result in an accident. We have found that is really the only way to succeed at potty training. Especially with a rescue dog. There is no idea of knowing what type of life the dog has had before so expecting them to tell us when they have to go potty isn't realistic.

Josie is really quite smart. She is already learning sit without a problem and my goal is to work on stay so she won't sneak out the door. Also, she's been sleeping in her kennel at night and not a peep.

I can't wait for Josie to find her family; she will be a nice pet for someone.
