Gracie June 2010
Tonight we spent over 2 hours at the dog park. My puppy is growing up. She is listening to me, and will come from a distance if she sees or hears me. This is such an improvement.

Last summer, when she was 7 and 8 months old, she had a reputation as "the mouth". She barked at everything and everyone, trying to herd the dogs, the humans, you name it. The bark is still there at times, but more controlled. We are almost to the point where I can pull her out of the herd 100% of the time. THAT is a very good feeling.  It has taken a great deal of work, but has been worth every minute.

Life is good.
