We met and brought home our Bess Pup
She quickly found the toy box
Met her sisters Bonnie and Belle, who clearly didn’t know what to think about this new bundle of energy.
Bess was introduced to Linus under Belle’s careful eye.
They soon became friends.
From the beginning Bess was determined to keep up with her big sisters.
Just like her sisters, Bess went to school to learn manners and how to be a good pup.
Bess is a bouncy loving pup and it’s been a blast watching her personality develop this past year.
Over this past year Bess has changed from a bouncy, barky alligator jawed puppy to obeying “leave it” and “give” commands even when she really, really doesn’t want to. She is learning the joy of sleeping in on the weekends. (Thank you pup!) She is starting to realize how much fun it is to cuddle. She is learning compassion and will quietly lay beside someone in an effort to bring them comfort. She is starting to learn that when she wants me to get up out of bed that means she has to stop standing on me so I can get up.
Bess will show us what she wants, by following the “show me what you want” command. Sometimes it’s to go outside, other times she wants a tummy rub. She still loves her stuffie toys and usually has at least one and most likely two or more in her mouth at one time. She is always up for an adventure and continues to be our bouncy Bess. I can’t wait to see what this next year brings.
