We have had Blue for almost 2 weeks. We are really enjoying having a dog again. She loves attention. She thinks she should be a lap dog but she weighs almost 50 pounds. We make her keep her back feet on the floor so she reaches as far as she can and when she lifts her back foot up I say "No Blue," and she puts it back down and snuggles as close as she can. She loves to walk and is very well mannered. She hardly ever barks, more like a whimper actually. Colin says she makes him warm. It's kinda fun having her around.
