Duchess loved March as it brought many cuddles and puppy visits, including her half-sister, Pinto! She even enjoyed some kitty cuddles at the sitters. It was also pretty adorable to see Duchess with 9-week-old PADS Dune, as she was so gentle with him. This came as a surprise as she is often a big behemoth of a pouncing puppy, yet — it was neat to see her soft, slow side.

Duchess is growing too quickly, and it is always bittersweet. She is the biggest sweetheart that eagerly seeks to snuggle as close as she can to you. In fact, she is still convinced that she is a lap dog. We have enjoyed watching her progress and continue to work on the variety of skills and experiences she needs.
