I am adopted!
Cindy (now ‘Java’) is doing awesome 🙂 She’s the biggest suck in the world and would do just about anything for a cuddle (including hang around our toddler). She’s amazing with our son and they’ve become good buddies already. Java always follows us into Isaac’s room in the morning when we go to let him out of his crib. Isaac’s first words are often “Cuddle Java” because he’s so crazy about her. We are constantly needing to tell him to be nice to her because she’s so patient she’ll just let him pull her fur or follow her around trying to cuddle her (which looks more like a ‘head-lock’ somedays). We love that she’s so calm and patient with our high-energy chihuahua, Otto. It took a few days for them to make peace, but now we’ve started catching them playing together! Otto is crated when we are out and Java is allowed to stay loose but it’s so cute to see their excitement when I let them out together when we get home. Java has given us a few scares with taking off on us, but is becoming more reliable at responding to her name and we’ve successfully had her off-leash on a few walks. She is not without her quirks, however… For the first bit she dutifully buried every toy or treat she got and has developed a nasty habit of jumping up on the kitchen table to finish any food left there when nobody is in the room. While this has been aggravating for us at times, Java responds really well to corrections so we are hopeful that she’ll figure out this isn’t cool pretty quickly. Otherwise, she is the world’s best dog and we are so happy with our decision to adopt! Thank you for all of your help! Sincerely, The Pruski family
