She was shaking when we first met her. She is not used to being away from home. You can tell that she has been loved and well cared for. Her coat is gorgeous, all curly and shiny. Her eyes are bright. She doesn't just wag her tail, she wags her whole body. And she smiles.
We were introduced to her at the Holiday Inn in Saratoga Springs, New York. It's a dog friendly hotel next to historic, Congress Park. We stay here often in the summer--go up for a jazz festival in June and then for the horse races in July and August.
Sasha has freckles!
We haven't heard her bark yet but she had a bad dream her first night and she yelped and whimpered which is why we helped her onto the bed.
But she prefers ours so Phoebe and Lucy have claimed Sasha's bed.
Sasha is learning how to walk on a leash and go to the bathroom while on a leash. If she has an accident inside the house it will be disastrous.
On our first walk back home, I was afraid she'd jump in the river that runs behind our house. I imagined what I'd do. After calling for help would I jump in? Of course. I don't know if Sasha knows how to swim.
I also explained that Lucy is the boss, of all of us, and that Phoebe is a bit of a bully but not to feel intimidated by either one. They will grow to love her just as much as we do.
Special thanks to Sandy at Windy Mountain Kennels for allowing us to adopt her.
