Duchess keeps proving that she is turning into an elegant, eager and affectionate dog. She nuzzles her way very quickly into the hearts of all those she meets. She can often be found offering a cuddle or giving the best puppy eyes begging for a head scratch.

December brought many adventures for Duchess. She watched many basketball games, tried to be non-existent in restaurants (which she did a very good job of!), went for many snowy walks and had a plethora of house guests for Christmas.

She is also finding her “cool” around other dogs, which is an exciting area of growth for Duchess. I suppose it helps to go to her wonderful sitters, who have three other dogs and two cats. πŸ™‚
