As I said, I really like Iris. She loves people, especially kids. She's housebroke. She follows me from room to room to be near me. She goes for a walk with us and walks well on a leash. She chases and retrieves the frisbee and loves all kinds of doggie toys.
She does worry when I'm out of the house; I see her little face in the window watching me. As I said before, my main concern is what she will tear up if we are gone for a few hours.
I was lying awake in the wee hours of the morning when it came to me: Mandy's old pen in the barn!
Someone asked about Iris' kennel cough: she still has coughing spells, but she's getting better, and her appetite is improving.
