“We wanted you to know that Katy is doing wonderfully. She is such a great dog, after the first week or so of settling in, she has really blossomed. The people at Lowe’s love to see her and her perfect doggie manners, the girls at Petsmart know her by name, and everyone in our neighborhood just love her. I am sending along a few pictures so you can see her cuteness.
We took her to PA- a 10.5 hour drive and she did well, didn’t sleep, but wasn’t wild, whiny, or hard to get along with. My parents absolutely love her- my Dad said if I want to get rid of her that he wants her. No chance of that!! We have been working hard on off leash training and she is doing well. We can go out in the front yard to do yard work and she just follows along and comes back when called.
In PA she was off leash most of the time- a few minor setbacks with chasing birds, but by the time we left she didn’t chase them at all. She is smarter than we are and exhibits sooooo many Border Collie traits. She is up to44.6 lbs as of today- hopefully she is slowing down- or she won’t fit through the doggie door! After a few days of being scared of the cows in PA, she then decided they were just XL dogs and tried to get them to run and play with her.
Well, I could go on for hours about her- but wanted you to know how wonderfully she has fit into our lives and that she is greatly loved.”
