    Re: Alpha!

    Alpha has been doing great and is really settling in. She's a very smart young lady and continues to push boundaries, but is doing very well with training.

    She had a tough past as far as we can tell. The trainer said she needs to learn to relax and trust us and that's the first step to her training. We've been working with her for the past two weeks on relaxing and letting us pet her, cuddle her, etc. without her getting too revved up. The theory, as I understand it, is she's been in survival mode her whole life and wants to be in charge because that's what she knows. However, she would prefer to know we are in charge and that we will take care of her.

    The past few days have been huge as she's become much more trusting and outwardly loving. We still have a long way to go, but are definitely making progress.

    Yesterday, I was cleaning in the reptile area and Katie came down and fell asleep in the big chair in that space. Alpha came down and quietly and carefully climbed up on Katie and feel asleep too. The picture says it all.

    Re: Alpha!

    Alpha continues to thrive. She's gained about 3 pounds and the vet wants another 3-4 pounds on her. She should be about 56-57 pounds and is currently 53 pounds.

    She's doing very well with training and is getting along well her brothers.

    She is amazingly sweet and loves to cuddle! She sure loves her momma too (don't worry, I am loved and get cuddles too).

    What a cute snuggle-bug she is. Looks like Alpha is settling in really well- but no surprise there. And it takes 2 to snuggle...LOL.

    Re: Alpha!

    Alpha is doing great. Her training is paying dividends and she is an all around love. She is really such a sweet girl. We only wish she realized she isn't a lap dog at 55 pounds of muscle! Oh, well. Worth it to have such a sweet girl who is gentle with and loves her little brothers too.

    I got some pics of her loving on her Mamma and wanted to post and update.
