Crazy Cricket

Holy moses! This Cricket-girl is the craziest, sweetest, most well-behaved, kissiest, stinkiest, silliest, slithering, smiling, long-legged monster dog on earth! She is such a puppy even though she is almost two years old. She pounces and bounds, eats anything off the floor (plastic, cloth, sticks, dryer lint), takes up every inch of space her 30 pounds can possibly take in the bed, and is both scared and brave at the same time.

When we first rescued her she was terrified of everything but me. I was her safe thing. Then she met our other pups and our black lab Amelia started taking care of her like a mommy-dog would. It was/is so cute! Cricket is gaining more and more independence. She still gets scared a lot but is doing better at facing her fears.

I can't believe we have had her for almost a year! She looks so much happier and healthier compared to how she looked in my introductory post from last year. To be honest, things were bumpy for a while once we got her. We would never ever give her up, but we were really struggling and didn't know if she would ever be rehabilitated from her past (we have no info on her past but think she was abused). Now she fits in our family swimmingly and I could not imagine life without her.

Aww Cricket! I love you and your slobbery kisses!
