gretchen1210_250x250Gretchen is doing very well, she’s such a great dog and we are happy to have her as an addition to our family. Her spunky personality fits right in. She’s curious, playful and energetic. And she has grown: we weighed her yesterday and she’s up to 36 pounds of solid muscle. She and Gordon (our other dog) chase each other around the yard and nap on top of each other in the mid-afternoons and evenings. Gretchen loves riding in the car and has made it a habit to go with me every morning when I take my son to school. She is well behaved, knows a handful of tricks, has good manners when meeting new people, and is starting obedience training next week. She looks like she might be a good dog for agility training; we are keeping that in mind.
