Violet is 4 1/2 months old. She is playful, and loves a good romp, but for the most part is pretty laid back. It might have something to do with the fact that her role model is our dog, Stella, who is 2 going on 92!!! My sister calls her "Nanny". I think it is also helpful that we spend lots of time with other dogs and take long walks daily. I also try to reserve some toys for special occasions (like rainy days) so that she won't get bored. She was very easy to housebreak and slept through the night from the time we got her, so perhaps most of her personality is hard wired. I feel very lucky, but believe me, I've paid my dues. I had a crazy Italian Greyhound (God bless his little soul!) for many years who was on prozac, never fully housebroken, and had several phobias. Puppies are like chocolates...... you never know what you're gonna get!
But seriously, I think Cricket will definitely settle down and enjoy more lap time as she gets older.
