Grace is doing great. She is an absolutely wonderful puppy. She is friendly, affectionate, playful, a quick learner, eager to please, sociable, energetic, curious, confident (but sometimes cautious), happy, and a constant joy to be with.
She’s growing well and is in perfect health. She took very quickly to sleeping in a crate in the bedroom at night and to housetraining (never had an accident in the house), and has settled into a nice routine. She greets me excitedly in the morning, climbing into my lap and enjoying some time cuddling with me before needing to go outside. Since I work at home, we are together almost constantly. We go for a walk of about 2 to 3 miles every day, in a variety of places nearby, woods and fields and parks, so she can explore different types of places. She loves meeting people and other dogs. She is a quick learner when it comes to training. She eats well but only as much as she needs; almost always leaves a little bit of food in the bowl. She gets plenty of good sleep, often on her back with her paws up in the air.
In the evenings, if it’s not too cold outside, we take another walk around the neighborhood. Right now she’s up on the couch with me, watching TV, as she usually is in the evenings, siting next to me and chewing on a puppy treat. She’ll probably start yawning in a little while and be ready for lights out.
She is also beautiful, of course, cute as a button, and as you know, a beautiful collie attracts attention wherever she goes. Everyone she meets is charmed by her.
I am so very grateful that I have Grace in my life now, and I can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done with her parents Jurassic and Emma and with Grace and her brothers and sisters. I feel very fortunate to have found you and her.
