|" Nikita "|
Last Thursday we adopted a new addition into our family. Meet Nikita, she’s a 14-month-old German Shepherd.
We got her from the Guide Dogs of America. Apparently, she didn’t meet their stringent requirements so we were able to adopt her. Nikita was already named and since she’s been training under that name I really can’t change it even though I’m not crazy about it. I’ve tried calling her Nikki but she didn’t respond to that name. So Nikita it is.
|Ginger & Nikita|
Nikita is very well trained and listens to every command, better than Ginger by the way. I’m hoping some of her good training will rub off on Ginger. Most likely Ginger will corrupt her and I’ll have two dogs that won’t come when called. Both dogs are getting along well... most of the time. There have been a few skirmishes over food, bones and toys but they’ve seemed to work it out.
It’s nice to see them playing and romping outside together. Being a southern California girl Nikita had never seen snow. She loves it and lies in the little patches we have left. I think she is feeling good about her new home. We love her already.
