With every passing moment, I get a greater glimpse of how special [Sandy] truly is....We took a long walk around the neighborhood and Sandy met more than a handful of friends, neighbors, acquaintances, and even a few dogs. We have taken exactly one walk on "The Avenue" and she is already a show stopper. Three groups of people stopped in their tracks to interact with her. She was great with every encounter. I have already realized how much she loves to bait humans into tug of war with her leash. LOL. She also marked her territory after peeing on our walk about 10 times. Sandy is such an inquisitive little girl. Everything new attracts her attention and it is amazing to witness.

It did not take long for me to realize you were an awesome mom to her. I really think that will help to make the transition much easier. Well, kinda. You give me hope that I too can foster without completely losing it when the time comes. I realize it takes a lot of strength and courage to do it.
Sandy was very active all evening, until recently. Now we are settling in for sleep and she is very quiet. I worry about separation anxiety, but I will do everything I can to make her feel better/loved. I took off of work tomorrow so she doesn't have to spend a single minute alone.
