Dear Kathie & Joe:                                                                                                                                        February 15, 2010

Just a short note on Ariel.

We renamed her Abbey.  She is doing just greatI

Compared to the pictures I took on January 23rd, she is growing fast.  See the attached photos.

She seems to be learning her name well.  And she is progressing fine on the house-training front.  Yesterday for the first time, she walked
up to our back door and started staring at me; I immediately knew she had to go.  And that’s just what she did!  She’s whip-smart just like
you said she would be.

She is very, very affectionate and a real joy to be around (even though she’s trying to chew everything she can get her choppers on).

We’ll send more updates later.

Here are 2 recent photos of Abbey.  What a babe!

This dog is exceptionally smart!  We have her going to a trainer in Lake Forest who specializes in Aussies and Border
Collies.  He says he might want to have her do some obedience training.  I don’t know . . .
