I can't believe it's been 6 months already, and we are so glad to have Cricket in our lives! We took our first vacation with her over Memorial Day weekend and she did great. We went on lots of hikes and she didn't have any issues in the car or the cabin.
Cricket loves chasing the squirrels and birds in our back yard and she loves chasing balls when there aren't any critters (squeaky balls are her favorite).
We take her out with us frequently to restaurants and on errands, but we're still learning that people can be ok. She's pretty suspicious of new people. She's going to be starting agility training in the fall, so I hope the new experiences will help her overcome some of her anxiety. And she has an amazing sniffer, so I'm thinking about doing some nosework training with her in the spring. She's a fast learner, and I think more training will give her more confidence.
People stop us frequently and say how beautiful they think she is.
