I’ve been intending to write for a year now….
Above are the two photos I could find to send to you. In the first, she has she’s brought her bed up into my bed; she is a stick girl. We sometimes call her Mys. Stick
Nicknames are Important!
Mystic (aka Crazy Beast) is wonderful. Everybody loves her. Really. My biggest challenge is not letting her be completely spoiled. My daughter calls her “my supermodel dog”. They all say “I love this dog!” More than one person has asked if she’ll have pups. I always refer them to Owyhestar. I should carry your business cards with me.
Beach Time is Important…
She gets at least an hour on the beach every morning. The one problem we had was when I had a 8 month job that was about 10 hour days, 3-5 days a week. She chewed up the molding in the sunroom that is now her room. We don’t leave her unattended other than in her room or her crate. She would chew on things… Do you have any good ways of breaking that habit? She still sleeps in her crate at night because otherwise she’d take over the whole bed.
In terms of training, we are a little spoiled bc the beach by our house is off leash and since she stays close it’s been so easy. However, when I do put her on a leash…. She tries to cooperate but we have a ways to go. I am going to do an adult pre agility class with her in order to train both of us and then potentially continue with agility for fun.
She is happy and healthy! Thank you so very much for such a intelligent, sweet and loving girl.
All the best to you and yours, Jennifer, Juan and family
