Just wanted to give you an update after a week with Luna home with us. She is totally the most amazing animal I have ever known. She is SO smart, loving, "with it", "on purpose", and just a total delight. She is learning very quickly, lets us know for the most part when she needs to go outside, though bathroom accidents still happen inside - we take her out so she doesn't have to tell us. She is sleeping really well, now only needing to go out once during the night. She comes to her name, sits, lies down, gets her ball and brings it back - and she is only 8 weeks old! Puppy class starts on Monday and I am sure she will have a blast!
She is adapting to her crate well, eating like a champ now - her appetite has really kicked in. She LOVES to be outside with Peter and our farm apprentices (WWOOFERS - World Wide Opportunities On Organic Farms) as they work in the garden. While they are weeding and planting, she is exploring, nibbling on the good, edible plants, and playing. And she is so social - loves to meet new people.
I do have to say that I am totally scraped up by puppy teeth - so that now I am wearing long, elbow length, black calfskin gloves that belonged to my dear departed Mama to protect myself when we play together.
We just couldn't be luckier than to have her in our family!
