8/22/07 Auneli arrived yesterday. So far she is an absolute delight. Here is what I have observed: (1)She gets very excited when she sees me. Her whole body wiggles in delight. She has a loving disposition. (2) She will sit when told when the leash is to be put on. (3) She will roll over and want her belly rubbed when you walk by. (4) She is fine if you mess with her while she eats or even take food away from her. It's no problem for her. Actually she eats better if you stay by her. (5) She was very excited to have a new canine friend join her in the yard. She was happy when he stayed, and got sad when he was moved. (6)she is about 1 1/2 years old. She has the double dews indicative of Pyrs.
She has been groomed as she was pretty matted and stinky. She now looks beautiful. She was great for the groomer. She said there was absolutely no sign of aggression. When the groomer got a little rough, Auneli would just turn her head away and look down. She stood patiently for an hour at a time having mats combed and cut out so she would not lose her coat. She enjoyed the bath. She was fine with the nail trim. The dew claws had started to penetrate the pads so the trim was just in time. Her ears were really bad, but after cleaning, it looks like there is no mites or any problems with them. She does not scratch at them, either.
She is very smart. Keeton, her new buddy, had an accident because I had not gotten down to the shop in time to let him out. As soon as I went into the shop, where they stay during the heat, Auneli walked over to the first poop and sat waiting for me to clean it up. Then she walked over to the second one and sat! She did this with all 4 little poop piles. Guess she was tattling on him!!!! I let her out and she had a real look of satisfaction on her face when she did her job outside.
