Hi Mary,

I just wanted to check in quickly about Duxie, I think she is outrageously smart, calm and super fun. She has a whole neighborhood admiring her, has been camping for a week, and is never separated from our Golden Retriever “Grandpa” or some other loving family member.

I’ve only had to hit myself in the nose with a newspaper a couple of times, so house training is going well.

I will send a couple of pictures as soon as I get a chance. We are all absolutely thrilled to have her; I think and hope she is happy to be with us. I have calls in to several puppy training classes, I’m sure I will find a good one.

We’ve been thinking of you, the new pups and Mom. Hope all is going perfectly well!

Thank you for our new family member!,
