Luna looks solemn in these pictures, but she is a very
happy, lively, girly girl. She loves to chase and fetch
balls. Soda bottle soccer is one of her favorite pastimes.
She loves her Frisbee, and tries to catch it with her front
paws, which doesn’t always work too well for her.
She gets along great with the cats; tattles on them when
they’re on the kitchen counter. She mouth wrestles for
hours with our other dogs, Uncle Tippy, the 13 year old
mutt, and Sparta, a laid-back two year old male ES recently
adopted from NESR. She will quickly reinforce any house
rule that Sparta violates, and, although he’s much bigger
than her, he takes it.
She jumps up on my bed to snuggle first thing in the
morning, and if this time together is interfered with for
any reason, she is NOT happy. She likes schedules. She’s
the first dog I’ve had who loves toys: she has a lamb and
an octopus that she carries around and snuggles with.
She loved puppy class, after her initial skittishness, and
we’re looking forward to obedience school, too. She’s very
suspicious of strangers, no matter how much I reassure her.
It takes quite a while for her to agree to put up with a new
person or new dog in the house. Meanwhile, she barks like
mad. She’s very biddable and a harsh word has a great
impact on her. She’s easily trained.
I can’t wait for her full farm collie qualities to emerge!
