Your Christmas card reminded
me that I've been meaning to let you know how things are going. What a
great dog! We just love her. We changed her name to Callie - we just couldn't
do Tinker. We tell people she's in the Witness Protection Program! She
answered to her new name very quickly - we actually purposely never used
Tinker in the hopes she would not be too terribly confused.
Anyway, she is such a sweetie.
Lab puppy stuff, but she tries so hard and learns so fast. I can't believe
anyone would give this dog up, but I'm so glad they did. Everything about
her is so sweet. She is certainly a country dog! She is still getting
used to the cars and trucks when we walk and we live in a quiet subdivision!
Every week she is so much more
adjusted to her life here. She has reverted back to some jumping up on
us when she's excited but is getting better every week. What was your
way of training her not to? She doesn't jump up on people when they come
in so that is good. She is afraid of men and barks at them - our male
neighbors and men friends that come over. It takes her about an hour and
then she is fine. Something must have happened to her in her past. We
just love her and are so happy to have her.
Thanks for all you do - she
obviously got a lot from her time with you and we appreciate it. If you
ever need us for a reference, feel free to use our name or phone number.
