Mafia's Annabella "The Angel" (Bolt)
Temperament (please explain): Heavenly! she's a total sweetheart and wants to be with me all day long. (not very convenient, but adorable.) right now, she still thinks she's a lap dog. relatively calm for a puppy (does well on her leash so far)--though with the bouts of crazy running around that you'd expect. loves, loves, loves other dogs and people. always running up to them on our walks. more specifically, she handles the poking and prodding by our 2 kids very well. they get upset b/c she has the puppy tendency to jump on them and nibble on them. (and even now, she's big enough for that to be a little scary for the kids.) but they're learning to handle her, and most of the time she's a gentle biter. she has been a total wimp about going outside in the cold weather, so the turn toward the warm has thrilled her as much as it has me.
Health (please explain): Good. She still has the mild eye infection that she had the first day we took her to the vet, but he said she'd likely outgrow it--or we may try the drops again. other than that, she seems fit as a fiddle, with more energy than she knows what to do with some days. As of a weight check 3 days ago, she was just under 29 pounds.
Other: her coat is still fabulously soft and she is, of course, utterly beautiful. people are always stopping us on the trails to gush over how pretty she is. she's still not happy when i crate her, but she's getting less whiny about it. house training going pretty well. (she also does well with sit, stay, and come commands.) she'll go to the door when she needs to go out. of course, if you don't notice and immediately go to let her out, there will be a puddle. one time, she barked to alert me to her needs, but mostly she just stands there hoping someone will notice her.
