#154 Tess

Tess (was Angel)
GSRNE #154
Adopted in November 2003

 

Just a quick note about Angel (GSRNE #154), who we adopted in mid-November. She’s great! She’s growing into those enormous ears — 70 pounds already, and she’s so long & leggy that she’ll be a big girl when she fills out. We renamed her Tess — she’s a sweetheart, but angel is pushing it a bit. She’s getting along fine with Toby, her older Lab brother, who’s starting to enjoy her despite her ignorance of a proper nap schedule :) . They have a fine time gnawing on each other’s heads and debating the ownership of the sticks they find on their walks. She’s been hiking, snowshoeing and skiing, has started obedience classes, and was a gracious hostess and a polite guest during the holidays. We are still working on a few issues, but overall she’s just being a big, curious, affectionate, goofy adolescent, and we’re enjoying her immensely.

Big thanks go to her foster family, the Snyders, who did a magnificent job with her, and Janice, who’s answered more emails than any sane person would. And thanks to all of you who helped bring her into our lives.

UPDATE: Tess graduated from puppy class and is headed for intermediate obedience classes, to learn focus, and catch so she can learn to play fly ball. She is also learning how to skijor.
