Remember these pups? I'm not exactly sure which one is Barley in the old photos but in these new ones, it's pretty obvious, she's a lucky one.
From Barley's new owner:
She's doing really well! At first she was having issues with other dogs and would bark and nip at them. I'm proud to say we can go into the off-leash dog park now. If another dog is too rambunctious she'll bark and try to nip, but for the most part she runs around with a huge grin on her face chasing other dogs and barking for fun (we're working on this).
Tonight is our last level 1 obedience class. She's a star and definitely the teacher's pet. She's catching on really quickly and listens pretty well. Even when distracted by another dog in the off-leash park, I'd say she has an 80% recall rate, which is pretty great for a puppy. We're going to take level 2 when it starts in the new year.
She endured her first professional grooming experience. The mournful cries made me think she really thought I was leaving her for good. She looks a bit weird, but that's the groomer's fault. She discovered the window in the car last week (up til then, she sat and stared at the back of the seat). She still shies away from new people initially, but if they ignore her she comes around.
She's definitely a character. Into everything and a true "little sister" to Clover. She take every opportunity to annoy her ... like biting her foot when she's sleeping. Overall, she's come a long way and is a good addition to the house. We're still working out a few kinks - like the barking and peeing in the house (I'm so tired of cleaning up pee!).
If you're around the neighbourhood over the holidays and you're interested in seeing her, I can walk her by a park or Tango Coffee or some other place, so you can re-meet.
