I just wanted to update you on our precious Liberty Belle! She is doing terrific. She is growing fast, a little over 10 lbs now. Like you said she my not get much taller, but boy she is a little tank. She keeps up with our Lab Sophie running, playing taking walk abouts in the woods. Yesterday, Bernie took them for a little walk and they both came back soaking wet. The bushes were really wet from some thunderstorms that had come through.
Speaking of wet.....I don't know if you remember that when we were there you brought some water out for the puppies and she just crawled into the container. Well we have a little plastic kiddie pool on the deck, supposedly for Sophie (the water dog) to cool off in. Well, Libby LOVES it! She jumps in, roots around with her head under water, jumps out and runs like a crazy girl around the deck and back into the pool. If we are inside watching TV or something she will even go take a dip herself! Crazy! Sophie, on the other hand, doesn't much like it -- its not deep enough.
She is pretty much completely housebroken. We have cowbells on the front door that the dogs ring to go outside. She picked up using the bells from Sophie very early; however she thinks that should work for food, attention, play, etc. She did actually ring to go out once.
So, just want you to know we absolutely made the right choice. We love her very much -- she's very sweet and keeps us laughing.
