Drama has arrived!!! and she is just as cute as she can be. She weighs about 30 pounds and stands just about 20 inches tall at her withers. There's a lot of puppy energy in that little, tiny body of hers though! Like most puppies, she runs and plays and runs and plays some more-and then, CRASH, she's sound asleep for an hour or so gearing up for some more running and playing. She is a complete hoot!! It's nice to have a puppy in the house again.
We are working on Drama's house training and she is improving daily. Again, like most puppies, she gets busy playing and sometimes forgets that outside is much better than inside for those things…LOL! I have a doggie door and she has mastered that without a hitch-she does go out all on her own and most times does what she should and then comes back in.
Drama has won the heart of my Chloe who will be 13 on February 27th. That is not an easy thing to accomplish. When you become a mature girl like Chloe, the young ones can be very annoying interrupting your beauty sleep. But Drama has wiggled her little self into Chloe's heart and now can even take a place next to her on the bed. As most deaf dogs, Drama wants to be touching another dog while she naps so that she can feel the other dog move and know something is happening.
Drama responds very well to being awoken by a gentle touch on her body. She does not have an overactive startle reflex and wakes up happy and almost smiling.
Athough Drama has not yet met any children at my home, I am quite sure she would be fine with kids as long she - and they - are supervised. Children over the age of 10 or 11 would be fine.
Drama sleeps all night in her crate with just a few whines at first and then she settles down and is out like a light. She eats 3 times a day for now and loves whatever she gets. Not a fussy bone in her little body.
Drama is listed on all her paperwork as a full boxer, but now that I have lived with her for a few days, my guess would be that she may be mixed with Boston Terrier or maybe even English Bulldog. Whatever is mixed up in this baby, it's made a good baby!! Seems the ingredients were all the right ones-she is as sweet as a puppy could be.
