Happy Gotcha Day Sweet Willow!

Today is Willows's Gotcha Day. Can't believe it's been 3 years already. She was 9 months when we she came into our home.

I was a little surprised and shocked at the amount of energy she had compared to my prior dog, a corgi. When other small dog owners told me that it would probably be up to 3 years before I noticed that she was not so crazy energetic, I thought what have I gotten myself into!

It didn't take long to get accustomed to her antics and energy as she wiggled into our hearts. We had to learn to use pet gates, remove the toilet paper from the holders, make sure that no clothing was hanging over the edge of the laundry basket or hanging over the edge of the bed and that our bath towels were not hanging down low off the towel racks.

Now that she is almost close to being 4 years old, I definitely see a change in energy. Don't take me wrong. She is definitely still a crazy, energetic girl but I do see that she is content to spend some time up on the back of the sofa, looking out the window.

Happy Gotcha Day my sweet princess!

Thank you for sharing this! We are crazy about our little KC, who is almost 7 months old (we brought him home at 2 months old). He does all of the things that you describe and we have adapted . We are really working with him to be more mannerly with people he meets, because he goes completely nuts with his jumping up and barking and being overly excited. It takes him too long to “settle”. We have tried all of the Trainer’s advise, but he goes through this with every new person he meets. I love to see all of his other puppy moves, because they are amusing and endearing
