Another Home Run

Hi Zach…

I was snooping around on your web page…hadn’t done that for a while…everytime I do…. it just Moooooves me….

Giselle aka Malin is doing very well…she has completely settled in as one of the family…at first she just didn’t want to be in the house, not even at night…but now (probably because of the 110 temperatures)
she stays inside most of the time. It’s so nice having a dog sleep right next to my bed at night…it just makes me sleep better…I love the sound of a dog breathing…sick I know…

Anyway she is a very smart and loving dog…she loves food…I hope I don’t get in trouble for feeding her too much…but Zach if I only feed her once a day…she is looking for food…sooooo I feed her twice a day
and she gets two cups…twice a day…don’t get mad at me…but I think she’s gained weight…we run 3 miles every day during the week and 6 miles on the weekend…so she’s getting a lot of exercise with all that
food ….

I feel very lucky to have her…can’t understand why anyone would give her up. I know her previous owner was a horse trainer…she taught Giselle stuff too…My sister, (another dog lover), met Giselle for the
first time and she did the “OMG you are so beautiful” thing to Giselle…kissing her and just doing that thing we do when we can’t get enough of a dog…and then…Zach…out of the blue, while my sister was
fussing over her…Giselle sat down and handed my sister her paw. My sister just about cried…because with that handshaking gesture came a great big huge smile …my sister said Teri that was wonderful…I then
had to tell her that I didn’t teach her that…I then began to see what else Giselle would do…well…I gotta tell you Susan may not have wanted to keep her but she clearly spent time with her…she does a lot
of fun stuff…

We will be bringing her to Tehachapi in October or November for her Wellness checkup…if you are around and would like to see her I’ll let you know when we are coming…I’m not really into all this internet
stuff so I don’t know how to take pictures and upload them or whatever it is you guys call it…otherwise I’d send photos…

Okay…I’m done…for now…I could write a lot more…but I won’t… Thanks for doing what you do Zach…you’re a special guy….
