Blooming personality

Those ears

Today marks Pyrrha’s four-month “anniversary” with us.

I have nothing special to report here, except that this dog is really funny and sweet. We love her a lot. I would never have dreamed seeing her so confident and relaxed; she is such a different dog from the one she was in May. The dog who hid from us in various corners of the house now comes to greet us with a wagging tail and kisses every day. The dog who slunk around behind me on walks now leads the way with a confident, curious posture. The dog who cowered with every passing dog on the street now wants to greet (almost) all of them.

She’s been very rambunctious and spunky lately, too. I think part of this has to do with her squirrel-catching encounter, and I’d attribute the rest of her blooming personality to the fact that she’s been very friendly with Guion lately. Last night, HE was the only one she wanted to play with. I couldn’t have been more thrilled. It’s the little things, you know? She opens up more and more every day. We are so happy to have her.

  1. Her face has opened up so much from the earlier pictures when you first got her. Just shows what a loving tender home can do! You’ve all done some great work together. Thanks for sharing your process, even if some of us, like me, don’t usually comment but watch with delight.

  2. Pyrrha’s a wonderful, beautiful girl! I’m so glad to hear how well she’s doing with you, and Guion! A lot of people hesitate to adopt an older dog because you don’t know what you’re going to get; it seems to me what you “got” is just fine! ^^
