She is finally here!
The world’s cutest doggy baby.
After a long trip to Holland Friday (702 km) we landed at the Goverwelle Kennel and saw our baby for the first time. Of course she was completely adorable. After that we went to a camping place near by, got into the city Apledorn and bought some food and stuff, and went back to be with Pandora at the Goverwelles house in the evening.
We took the puppy for a walk and she did quite well. The collar was annoying her but she went from scared to brave within 10 minutes.
Back at Goverwelles we let her stay the night so we could go and get her the next morning. And so we did. We left the Goverwelles house half past 11 the next morning to go all the 702 km back to Denmark.
Here I must say:
Thank you so much to Letty and Koos for the handeling of the little dog with love and care. It was SO good to see that they spend a lot of time caressing and nursing the dog. All the time she was handled with care and love. Being caressed, cuddled and played with. It made me so happy as I know that it would bring up at better dog, a more trustful dog and actually a more intelligent dog. Thank you van Goverwelle for your way of treating your beautiful dogs. I can not be more specific: That’s the way to treat a dog from it’s early days. Well done!
Long trip home, but we only had four stops. She never cried or seamed unhappy. She was sitting on my lap for 30 minutes, then she wanted to lay on the back seat of the car. We stopped for short walks, she had one accident in the car, but was doing everything she should when she was out. She ate and drank and was so delightfully calm all the long 9 hours drive to our home.
As we got home in the evening, it was like Paradise? I have never seen anyone freak out the way she did. She was so overwhelmingly happy. The entire dog jumped up and down for half an hour. She knew somehow that she was home and she love it.
A little later we took her into the garden and let her free. She is still so attached to us so she wouldn’t run away. Everything was curiously searched.
And then she fell in the pond 🙂
1 x 1 sq. meter and 30 cm deep it was no problem for her to reach the bottom but she couldn’t get up. We had quite a laugh and she took it calmly.
She did get tired around midnight and so did we.
And to our big surprise she slept the whole night through. Not one time did we wake up to hear something being chewed at, not one time!
As we woke up this morning she peed on the floor as we didn’t make outdoor. Never mind that.
We went to the lake to meet some friends with their Rottweiler and Pandora felt in love with him immediately.
She looked at the water with interest, but didn’t go in except for the feet. But she was curious, I’m sure she’ll bath before the summer has ended.
Next we went to get our old dog (14 y.o.) and again, Pandora felt in love. This is now her pseudo mother and they get along fine.
Now she’s been sleeping for an hour and is now waking up to explore new parts of the wold. We are outside and she’s is next to me all the time.
I have no doubt that she’s an intelligent little one and she seams to feel completely safe here. No whining, no tears, no problems.
Is it really that easy?
Welcome Pandora, we are glad to have you here.
