Thank you Kim!!! The cats will take a bit of work but the evening went without a hitch. The kids distracted her so much last night that she ended up sleeping in the middle of all the rooms keeping us safe then she jumped from each room and then went back to her post. I need to share a story with you. Of course, we took Tabetha to run our morning routine today, so off we went and dropped off Lily at school, and noticed Tabetha's angst when Lily left the car but reassured her that she would see Lily again, and off we went to the park. While at the park, she enjoyed a great walk and to my surprise chased a little bunny into the bushes... BOY is she STRONG!!
Before circling the park again, I decided to drop off thekids in the playground area while we walked a big circle around the playground. Tabetha and I were maybe 10 feet away from the kids when she noticed that they weren't following us. She stopped and looked at me like "Hey, I think we forgot those 2 monkeys climbing and hanging off the bars." Again reassured her and proceeded to walk a few more steps. This time she pulled on the leash, looked at me again while DIGGING HER FEET into the ground and refused to move!!!!! I thought, well maybe, she just wants to walk on the other side of the park (a new area). So I allowed her to lead and to my surprise she glanced back at me and trotted straight to the kids, smelled each one, wagged her tail and looked at me like "Hey lady, I'm not going anywhere without my kids!"
I LOVE HER EVEN MORE and look forward to the lifetime of years that we'll be sharing together. So in answer to your question she is doing great! :) Although she cried when the 2 little ones were dropped off at the Boys & Girls club but I reassured her and went back home where I treated her with fresh water, her morning breakfast, her treat (as it’s a MUST) and a good tummy rub and tons of hugs and kisses.
Hubby and I love her dearly and so do the kids. We are blessed and appreciate you having found her for us. I'll send pics so you can share them with everyone! Bug me ANYTIME!!! We'll be life long friends thanks to our Saints and will be sure to attend as many organizations to help get the word out about you, all the wonderful people at Sunny Saints and to get these pups into good homes. You folks are amazing and are lucky to have you there to save these gentle giants.
