Wow, what an incredible week it has been since Lila and Roxy arrived. The Houghton household has been a busy and a popular place for all our friends to visit. The girls arrived safely early Tuesday morning and quickly adjusted to their new home. They love their "room" which is right off of our kitchen in what we call the sun porch. It is a bright and cheerful room where they can still keep an eye on all of us whether we are in the kitchen or family room. They love their crates , their cushy LLBean bed pillows, and their toys. It's been a little like Christmas for them as our visitors have been bestowing gifts on them. It didn't take long for them to pick out their favorite toys.
On Friday they made their first trip to the Vet where all went well. The vet is a lovely gentle man who instantly took to them and they to him. They are both gaining weight. Roxy 1 1/2 lbs and Lila 1lb since their last weigh-in with you. Roxy is still smaller but will catch up with Lila at some point.
We are trying hard to train them to go potty in their designated spot....of course, everybody accuses Mom of being a softie and letting them go on the grass. Oh well, all in due time.
They have been sleeping great. A couple of nights they made it from 10pm all the way til 530am the next morning. Can't complain about that. They easily go into their separate crates which are right next to each other. They can see each other and even rub their noses together if they want, that's how close they are. During the day, they sometimes walk right into their crates by themselves and fall asleep.
It has been such a fantastic first week. The girls have brought such joy into our home. Their little personalities are developing as each day goes by. They are sweet and spicy at the same. They love to cuddle and they are never at a loss for somebody to love them back.
We are so thankful to you for all you did to provide us with the most beautiful puppies. We know you put your heart and soul into what you do and it clearly shows. We couldn't be happier!
Thank you for everything. We will keep in touch.
The Houghton Family
