Letter from Misty & family


Thanks for the letter.

Yes, it is going well, Misty already looks like part of the furniture (sprawled in her basket as I write). She is already very rewarding - affectionate, gentle, clever, excitable at times.

Lou did have her nose out of joint for a day or so, they now sleep next to each other and we saw Misty trying to play with her this evening.

She is still learning how to tell us when she needs to go out for a wee, so we have wiped up a number of puddles.

We have a 10-metre training 'lead' which is brilliant down at the beach, she can run around, dig holes and chase her floating chewable frisbee. She is learning to Sit, Wait, Here, Leave etc..
She tries to round up cars, which is our biggest worry at the moment - vehicles themselves do not bother her unless they are moving. The faster they go, the more she will lie down facing them and as they go past she tries to race after them. She has had some intensive therapy and is getting better but is still quite un-predictable. On the plus side she does not want to chase bikes or runners.

We have 30 kg of food on order, to arrive sometime this week...
