Barkley's getting bigger!
Barkley (formerly Ms. Orange) is growing every day - which is lucky, because she needs those long legs to get through all of the deep snow we've been having here in Ludington! She is having a lot of experiences, meeting lots of people, and doing a lot of socializing.
She got to see her mommy, Cheeto, again when we stopped by for a visit on the way back from spending the holidays in Colorado. It was hard to tell whether Cheeto knew it was one of her own puppies, but they had a great time playing together. There's a definite resemblance between mother and daughter.
Unlike Cheeto, who was a very easy puppy to raise, Barkley is quite willful and headstrong - she definitely keeps me on my toes. Cheeto spoiled me; Barkley reminds me that raising and training puppies for Paws can be a lot of work! But it's also very rewarding, and she's very smart and a lot of fun, and she makes me laugh and smile every day. (submitted by Kari Karr)
