Beale is so easy

Hi friends… and fellow puppy raisers.

I need to brag a bit on my pup. She’s so good. And I didn’t teach her to be this way. Today we went to the fabric store, a huge thrift store and to to the ATM. She behaved beautifully through it all, even in the 95-degree heat. Her favorite thing to do on these kinds of days is to “buckle up” on the floorboards of my truck (she gets full air conditioning!).

Sunday was Trego’s second birthday; Beale is about eight months old. I’m realizing more each day how much Beale is NOT like Miss Trego. Trego was, and always will be, my baby girl. She was perfect. I swear. But it was a steal your shoes, tease you when you call her name, refuse to come inside, bark when you want her to be quiet, impatient at the dinner table kind of perfect. Beale is just the regular kind of perfect. She does what’s expected. She walks quietly on a leash. She comes when calls and sits when asked. She’s easy and perfect and I feel very lucky to have had both of these kinds of “perfect.”

That’s all.

Love from Sacramento,

Becka and Beale

p.s. Just for the record, we think we’d keep Beale if she doesn’t make it in the program.
