Its hard to believe Lia (formerly Tasha) has been with us only one year; it feels like she has always been part of our family. She and Seamus are best buddies; they play together and curl up together. Our days start and end with the two of them playing a gentle game of bitey face with each other. I even caught Seamus licking her face last week. They had a fantastic time in Down East Maine. Lia has transformed from a dog who didn’t want to get her tummy wet to an avid swimmer. If she sees water, she has to get in it. I took so many great photos of them it was really hard to choose which ones to send!
We are still working on leash training. Lia is so interested in following her nose that she tends to pull on the leash. I am seeing definite improvements. She responds beautifully to positive training and cookies. In spite of the cookies, Lia has managed to lose 28 pounds. She looks and feels great.
