Hi Catherine, Just have to share! Gracie is the most adaptable, adorable little girl. Thank you for a lovely pup!
Apart from minor whining when I put her into her carry-crate for a nap yesterday afternoon, she's taking her new life in stride. Her carry crate fits inside the sturdy one, so she slept there last night in a small barricaded area of the room with her potty patch accessible. She stirred a few times, but didn't ask to go out until 7 and hadn't even used the potty patch! Such a clever little thing. Of course, she then leapt out the door directly into a snowbank and needed rescuing.
There's not been a single pee inside so far, but the wind is too cold to keep her out long enough to pooh, so she finally went inside. However, that was right ON the potty patch that she'd ignored since she arrived. You did a truly fabulous job with her!
Also, she has the following instinct you'd once mentioned. Gracie is a little shadow inside and out, and is very focused on us.
Thank you again, for a delightful little girl!
