Summer is a gentle sweetheart who loves attention. She is also great with our three kids and could play fetch with her tennis ball for HOURS...particularly at bedtime :) So far, she prefers to lay outside in the yard to relax when she is not playing with her ball - so a good-sized fenced-in yard would be best for her. She is pretty fickle when it comes to following her commands, unless there is food involved :) Some review would be good. We have also learned pretty quickly that no food is safe if left out on the counter or table. She is pretty good at responding to "no" though, and will avoid it if told to do so. Summer's first vet appointment went well yesterday. We are treating her for a double ear infection (which would explain the smell and all the shaking she has been doing)and all of her blood work came back as clear. We are hoping to schedule her appointment to be spayed in the near future.
