This dog has brought a new joy to this house. She absolutely adores the kids. Mighty Mouse takes her out in the morning and he carries her, which is funny to watch, because it's obviously not the most comfortable thing for her, but she loves him so much she just doesn't care. She whines and cries when they leave for school and is so excited when they come home, which is so different from Laney, who was probably thrilled when they left so she could have peace and quiet. She makes me laugh so hard sometimes. She runs around like a cat in a burst of energy, which also makes the kids laugh uncontrolably. She is so gentle. Never snaps food or bones. She even picks at her food and doesn't glom it all at once like most dogs do. I leave it out and she picks all day. It's amazing how great her temperment is. Can you tell I'm just madly in love with her?
