Update on Zaha (All In One)

Monday, December 12, 2011

We just got an update from Anna, who adopted  Zaha (All In One) a month ago. Anna wrote:

 It has been a whirlwind of new experiences for us both. Right from when Sonja first described her to me, Zaha ticked all the temperament boxes, and when I met her for the first time I knew she was the dog for me. She was a little larger than I was expecting - at an average male size she looks quite a sight walking down the street with less-than-average-height me! :)
Zaha is such a confident and relaxed girl she has fitted right into my life, and I was so pleased to see how calm she was with my oh-so-excited 2yr old nephew, who has entitled her "big hot dog". Their picture together below:

She has really settled in at home, and most nights now takes herself off to bed in her den under the stairs.
We have been going to obedience classes, and can now do 'down', 'sit', 'wait', 'stay' and 'come' at home, although all bets are off once we're out the gate - the world is way too exciting to be worried about all that stuff! Zaha has also mastered outside stairs, and is fine going up inside stairs, but we are still working on going down - it's a pretty big ask when you bridge three or four steps at a time!

We have both enjoy exploring the great places to walk around Wellington. Zaha is a bit of a sook, and prefers to keep walks short, but on the odd wet day (when she clearly didn't want to get her feet wet outside!), she has proved she is still a racer at heart by turning the very short distance between her bed and mine into a racetrack! Animates is also fun to visit, though I can never make a quick trip as invariably I have every staff member and child in the store come for cuddles! We are having a great time together, and I hate going out without her now...the happy bounces at the gate when I come home would suggest she does too!
