Autumn) is beginning to show us her personality. She is still
very quiet and tends to sleep or rest most of the time although she
opens up more every day. She is now absolutely loving to take
walks on the leash and we finally saw her run in the backyard while
playing with her toys.
Stairs are still a
challenge for her. She will not descend or climb the basement

It looks like Angel
will be easier to housebreak than we initially thought. She
already understands that our bedroom is off limits. She is now
willingly but reluctantly walking into her cage at night and does not
bark for more than 10-20 minutes. She barked this morning at

We call her Crystal. She has a very timid type of personality and
likes to cuddle. Angel and Crystal get along pretty well but
Angel plays rough with her. She likes to "bite/nibble"
Crystal's tail and to carry her around in her
mouth. Although Crystal squeals, she goes back for more. All she
had to do is growl, yes growl, and Angel runs the other way crying.
