more bragging...

Sorry, but I have to talk about my puppy more.

Zooey is seriously a perfect puppy! The indoor peeing is minimal. She cries at night, but that's to be expected. She doesn't seem to like baths, but doesn't squirm too much. She loves snuggling. She loves chewing, but is usually content with her toys (except when we go outside and she tries to eat everything in sight). She has her occasional nipping fits, but calms down pretty quickly when we tell her "no" and give her something else to chew on.

Zooey makes us laugh so much. She stalks her toys and pounces on them like a kitten. When she walks, her little butt shakes all over the place. She sleeps in the funniest positions. She follows us all over and flops on the floor by our feet wherever we stop.

She loves going on walks. We take her on at least 5 a day! She walks surprisingly well on her leash - there is some pulling in opposite directions and stopping to try to eat rocks/cigarette butts/wrappers, but for the most part, she just trots alongside us. Yesterday I walked her to downtown Plymouth right when Doug got out of work to surprise him (& he had a surprise planned too - he arrived at his car with a bouquet of flowers!).

She's pretty adventurous - always friendly and eager to meet people and dogs when we're out & about... even if the older dogs seem a little leery of her.

I could go on & on & on, but we've got to get back to our afternoon regiment...
