I just wanted to let you know that Grace is doing just fine. She likes her crate and happily gets in for a nap. She went to bed without any fuss last night and even slept all through the night! I heard her entertaining herself in the early morning with a puppy nylabone — no whining at all.
She’s had a full day today — lots of time in the backyard, two good walks around the block, a visit at my friend Choon’s house and a little run in a nearby park. She finds being outside exciting but also overwhelming — lots of unfamiliar sights and sounds and smells. Bit by bit I think she’ll get comfortable though. She’s been greeting everyone she meets, people and dogs both. Grace is treating my cat Pete as no big deal so thanks for doing such a good job acclimating her to cats. Pete hisses a little but is getting on with his life very nicely. They were both in the backyard together today and it was nice to see them going about their own interests without any worries about the other.
Grace has not had a single accident in the house yet. She is even in the process of knowing pretty clearly where in the backyard she should do her business.
I know there’ll be some rough patches coming, but I have to say that it’s pretty clear to me how lucky I am to have been able to adopt such a sweet and calm puppy.
Thanks again for getting Grace off to such a good start. I’ll try to send a couple of pictures soon.
