HEY MRS PAULA,
I JUST WANTED TO SEND YOU A MESSAGE ON SHELBY'S PROGRESS. FIRST I MUST SAY YOU BREED AWESOME CHESSIES! HER NATURAL RETRIEVING INSTINCTS ARE REALLY SHOWING NOW. I HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH HER ON BASIC OBEDIENCE AND NOW HAVE MOVED ON TO RETRIEVING;LAND AND WATER, NOW THAT SHE OBEYS VERBAL COMMANDS 100% OF THE TIME. I KNOW THIS WILL MESSAGE WILL BE LONGER THAN I INTENDED,BUT I'M SO PROUD OF THIS GIRL! SHELBY'S VERBAL COMMANDS INCLUDE SIT,STAY,DOWN,UP,WAIT,HEEL,HONOR,LEAVE IT,SHAKE,GET ON LINE,MARK,FETCH IT UP AND OF COURSE NO MA'AM! I'M WALKING HER TWO TO THREE TIMES PER DAY OFFLEASH ALREADY. WE HAVE GREAT DOG PARKS HERE AND THE DOG BEACH IS HER FAVORITE. WITH THE WARM TEMPS LATELY WE'VE BEEN SWIMMING ALOT. SHE RETRIEVES TO HAND BEAUTIFULLY. SHE EVEN HONORS MY LAB BY WAITING BY MY SIDE WHILE HE RETRIEVES. SHE IS ACTUALLY TEACHING HIM AS SHE IS FAR MORE ADVANCED! I HAVE BEGUN BRINGING HER IN THE FIELD AND SHE REALLY PAYS ATTENTION TO DOVES WHEN WE FLUSH THEM. SHE LOVES TO TREE SQUIRRELS AND SEEMS TO BE VERY ATTENTIVE TO WILDLIFE. AS FOR SHELBY AS A FAMILY MEMBER;WE DON'T KNOW HOW WE GOT ALONG ALL THIS TIME WITHOUT HER. SHE WAKES US UP IN THE MORNING WITH A KISS ON THE CHEEK AND WHAT I CAN ONLY DESCRIBE AS A YODEL;SHE IS SO TALKATIVE! SHE LOVES TO FALL ASLEEP WITH MY DAUGHTER,BUT ALWAYS ENDS UP SLEEPING ON THE COOL TILES OF THE BATHROOM FLOOR. SHE LOVES HER BROTHER SINJIN AND IS DEFINITELY BIG SIS! I WILL SEND PICTURES NEXT EMAIL I PROMISE. HOPE ALL IS WELL WITH YOU AND YOURS.
KELLY PLATT
