Yesterday, little Miss Georgia Peach was handed back to Mommy and Daddy. Given timing, other commitments and of course lonely hearts, she was transported from Atlanta, Georgia to Tampa, Florida via two separate parties. Do not despair however! I have gotten the promise (you are all witnesses) that Georgia’s Mommy would continue to write blogs and updates for me so that you can see her progress. So far, I had a conversation with her last night while Georgia was apparently romping around biting at, climbing on and barking at everything. The last thing I remember is hearing her leave the conversation momentarily only to return saying that Georgia had climbed her way into the bathtub… I guess that is a good thing because it is the first step to getting her used to bath time!
It was a bittersweet goodbye, but it won’t be long until we see her again. For now, she can go raise you-kn0w-what at someone else’s house and get a taste for the finer things in life (literally…I foresee her getting into some silk, lace or otherwise!). The trip south was surprisingly easy and she seemed to rather enjoy herself sitting in the back showing us her newly forming adult teeth when she wrapped them around the holes in the carrier.
Georgia is certainly a little peach and has taught me a lot about puppyhood. The stories are hilarious and the days can be frustrating, but in the end, it is extremely rewarding. Keep in mind, I always knew she wouldn’t be mine, so the attachment was very much discouraged, which made the ordeal harder. If you know you want a puppy and are ready for the commitment, (given the experience I had) I would imagine it is the best feeling in the world to conquer training hurdles. For me, it was great. For her owners, it will be greater. Stay tuned for updates, and don’t forget that we are always here to answer your questions!!
