Chica – May 2017

Nelly (fka Chica) moved in with us just over two weeks ago and is doing great. My husband and I keep marveling at how easily we all have transitioned to her joining the family. She’s a happy girl and makes everyone smile. She LOVES to snuggle and she follows me everywhere I go. She is gentle with my son and is an annoying little sister to our other dog, Huck. She teases him and has been successful in getting him to play with her. He is a very serious dog and she is helping him to be more playful and mellow. He spends more time with us now that she has moved in. Nelly wears Huck’s invisible fence collar and does a great job staying in the yard. I keep her on a leash for walks. She really likes to eat. I have to watch her closely at meal time because once she finishes her food, she moves over to Huck’s bowl if he doesn’t get there first. We are crate training her. She sleeps there every night and understands when I tell her to “get in her house.” Overall, she really is a perfect dog for us. We are so glad we found her! Thank you!
I attached some pictures for you. As you can see, she gets very cozy on the back of the couch.
