It's been almost a year already since Holly left the shelter to come and live with us here in her "forever home." Every day we're treated to her happy smiles.
Holly did very well in her scholarly pursuits at PSU (Pet Smart University). An additional benefit is that we learned quite a bit about dog training too ("it's all about the treats!") I only wish that we had taken our previous three dogs to obedience school. I would recommend this training to anyone who gets a new dog -- and even though Holly was 3 years old when she started school, she was a fast and excellent learner. I believe more classes are probably in her future.
We have found out over the past year that Holly is a champion napper. What a difference from the three energetic German Shorthaired Pointers we had as pets prior to Holly! Holly does have her high energy moments, but mostly she's really laid back. Holly will nap by herself......
but she actually prefers napping with her people! She's usually right between us at night.
Holly also enjoys afternoon naps -- especially on the couch with her mom!
