Izzy

Revision:  Riley doesn’t seem like a Riley to us.  Instead, she seems like an Izzy 🙂  So our baby’s new official name is Isabella Riley (of course the full name will only be used when she is being naughty!).

I think this name completely suits her.  Everyone who sees her always says how beautiful she is.  That’s covered with the “bella” part.  And the shortened Izzy just seems playful and silly enough for a dog who runs to you and immediately falls on her side and wants her belly rubbed 🙂

She had a GREAT night.

We kept her in the Tinkerbell room last night with her doggie bed and water, locked up so the kitties could have the run of the house and not feel so scared.  They did get a little more brave last night and come within peeking distance of Izzy, watching her.  But then every time Izzy repositions herself on her doggie bed, or sighs, they run away.  I think it will take a little bit of time before they all get along like they’ve known each other forever.

But as I was saying, Izzy did great in the room.  She never whined.  She never barked.  She didn’t pee or poop in the room.  All good things.

And she’s just so incredibly gentle. She has not jumped up on anyone yet and we still have never heard her bark.

She loves her walks!  She’s so inquisitive!  We are working to do some training with her regarding sitting, staying, and heeling.   The best part today was when she was off her leash in the yard running from Kimm to me and back again.  She looked so free and happy.

But now she (and WE!) are pretty darn tired.

All in all, I think Izzy is happy in her new home.
