Beatrice has blossomed in ways I could only have imagined in the three months we’ve been together. She’s developed an incredible trust in me and an inseparable bond has formed between us, but she has separation anxiety whenever I leave her at home for brief periods (to go out for dinner or to the health club) – she isn’t destructive, but noticeably distressed when I return. Some intense TLC always brings her back around. We spend a lot of time together and Beatrice goes everywhere with me, except to work. Beatrice happily goes to day care while I’m at work and is a staff favorite – they call dibs each day on who gets to walk Beatrice. Beatrice loves to go for long walks and last week we ventured into the woods several times for a three mile hike. Beatrice’s gentle, affectionate and devoted temperament is absolutely wonderful - she’s truly a joy to be with. She’s completely content whenever she’s with me and sleeps quietly throughout the night on the floor in the bedroom.
We just finished a six week basic obedience class and begin an intermediate obedience class in two weeks. The training track we’re on is for Canine Good Citizen Certification with the ultimate aim for Therapy International Certification. Beatrice loves to learn and responds extraordinarily well to praise and treats so it makes training fun for both of us. We’re almost done with another six week introductory class for agility and performance work. Beatrice is doing extraordinarily well and has become quite the performer learning to circle traffic cones and move over/under obstacles off leash and on command. I’m unsure how far we’ll go with the agility series of classes, but plan to begin the first class early this summer. Beatrice shows no interest in tennis balls or toys of any kind, but that may change as I keep trying to engage her.
I’ve continued feeding the Life's Abundance food and NuVet supplements you recommended and ardently believe in the products.
Beatrice is still the sweet and ever so gentle little girl I brought home on December 8th – she’s truly everything I wanted and more than I hoped for in a companion animal. It was very apparent to me when I began the adoption process and when we first met that Beatrice held a special place in your heart. As you will recall I was overcome with emotion when you helped Beatrice into my car at the Park in Decorah and I gave you a hug as we said goodbye. It was at that moment that I felt an enormity of responsibility for the privilege you had bestowed upon me. I knew Beatrice was special, but had no idea just how special she would become and how she would capture my heart. Thank you for the all the work you did with Beatrice to prepare her to live with me. Above all, thank you for the trust and confidence you placed in me to care for and nurture Beatrice – it’s an honor for which I am forever grateful. The two of you have changed my life in a very profound way.
