Progressing nicely

So while I'm working through a computer issue, I'm sorry to say I don't have any pictures that I can upload. I can however say that Josie is really doing a great job adapting to our home. The biggest milestone is that she scratches at the back door when she wants to go potty. We LOVE and appreciate that so much.

Also, I stand corrected because after last week's bitter cold weather she has realized why everyone else snuggles on the couch together. So she could be a lap dog after all because she has started to snuggle. One night she even picked her cozy spot to be on top of Libby our black lab. Poor Lib is so tolerant that she didn't even care. Josie really is learning a lot at our house and she would be a fairly easy dog for someone who is looking for that. Not a super active dog either. She is just such a sweetie I would love for her to go home where she has a place of her own.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from Muffy/Josie! Josie is doing very well here at our house. I think she will be a very trainable dog. I've spent not more than ten minutes teaching her how to sit and she has mastered it already. Even without a treat. She goes through spurts of a few minutes where she wants to play and wrestle with our dogs. Then, she is content to sleep on her dog bed or in her kennel. We bought a brand new blanket for her kennel and she just loves it. She is making strides at snuggling too, but I don't think she'll be a "lap dog". That is okay with us though.

We're happy to have her here as long as she needs a place to stay, but she really is looking for her very own family. Here's to a fresh start in the new year!
