The holidays were wonderful and I had extra time to spend with Angie. I decided to name her Christie, short for Christine.

She is wonderful! She was shy at first but warmed up quickly and now is shy only a little.

She loves to run the complete length of the apartment 3 or 4 times full speed and squeak her moose when I get home. I found a new treat that she will dance for. I am trying to teach her to sit but that will come. She loves her squeak toys that are in strategic locations plus bones scattered everywhere, which she likes to rearrange as part of her duties.

I believe she feels comfortable with her surroundings and right at home, even outside. She has her favorite places to look out the windows and to sleep and snuggle, plus my recliner and bed.

She has adjusted to my leaving at night to go to work but not thrilled about me leaving, even though I tuck her in with a treat and leave the soft music on low. Her built in clock has her at the front door when I return and then about 30-45 minutes of play and petting, then in my lap resting reassured all is OK.

She does very well on the leash and does her best to mind and please me. She has so much enthusiasm in everything outdoors. The weather is improving from cold and wet allowing more time to spend as it improves.

She is now in a chair in my office as usual when I am at my desk.

She is such a sweetie and I am very thankful for her. I love to see her happy and knowing she feels secure and loved.

Thank you again so much and for the wonderful work you do.
