Aubrie (aka Brie) is doing great! She's gained 2 lbs. and the vet thinks she's right around where she should be. She's almost completely come out of her shell- a real love bug (though noises while she's on leash still startle, and she'll back away from men who approach too aggressively)- and a goofy klutz who falls asleep and slides off the couch. Obedience classes are going pretty well, and she's a champ at 'leave it'. We haven't got a handle on the jumping, but she's so much happier to see people that I can't help but take it as a change for the better; we'll keep working on it. We've learned through experience to pass up the dog park if it's too crowded, or if the energy level is too high, so lately there have only been good experiences there.
That's very exciting news about the new facility, and though we can't donate right now, we will when we can.
Thought you might like to see our photo of Brie with the Easter Bunny :).
