Tabitha's story

Hi Leslie, Thought I would give an update on Ella [Tabitha] who continues to delight and enchant with her sweet-natured temperament and enthusiasm. We have watched such a rapid development in these past two weeks from a tentative and shy, snugly little thing into a more adventurous, full of wonder, bigger, snugly little thing. I love seeing her accomplish things which the day before she just couldn't do - like going up and down steps. She's a great little girl and we love her dearly.

She had her stitches out last Tuesday and I asked about her vaccination. The vet told me there is a two-shot vaccination available so pups can start socialising a month earlier. So I will take Ella in later this week for that. Puppy school is on the agenda next month.

Yesterday we took her to our farm at Hampton. She is quite a good car traveller and went in the back of our station wagon happily enough with some encouraging words from Catherine who patted her from the back seat.

Included with this email are some photos for you.

Best wishes, Wendy, Denis and Catherine

Tabitha was adopted on 1/8/10 after 1 month in foster care.
