The first few days at home. I am still trying to figure out 'who she is' so i can give her a name. Her official AKC name is Jolie. But her personality name? Gypsy... comes to mind but...

I have been calling her Beanie, Bean, JoJo, Jolie. Not sure what her 'call' name will be but i figure something that matches her mood, attitude and that works : )

October 12, 2008 (10 weeks old) with Bodhi (her big brother!)

Bodhi almost fawns over her. He loves her. Wakes me up in the am to get her up. Barks to get her out of the crate... has begun to get into mischief more often and is so so happy...

November 1, 2008 - 12 weeks old...

Jolie is 12 weeks old... She graduated from Puppy School (thanks Sandi from BravoPup for another great class)


She is starting to bring me the ball (and tug toy) to share (ie. waving it in front of me to tug!) She is starting to really bond to me now. And I to her. Her call name is 'JoJo'.

I really love her. She is neat and everything and more. I am excited!

Jolie (on our favorite open space trail) - 10 months

She is so much more faithful to her training in the real world. Her recall is good. At agility trials we can 'play parallel to other dogs (she stays focused on me) and in class she is focused on me unless a rouge toy from another handler comes flying into her space near where we are! Then she bolts and steals it - must work on that (at least she runs back and throws herself at me with it!)
