Arrival Story: We had a four hour round trip to pick her up from the breeder's house. When we got her home, she hid under a sofa for nearly 2 days and we had to hand feed her with some nice fresh mince to tempt her to finally come out. After that, she settled down really well and, as it was getting cold, she even started sleeping under the covers with us.
Bio: Marina is very affectionate and likes to follow us around the house sometimes, like a puppy. When we are on the computer, she'll come and lie on the desk between the screen and the keyboard and push things out of the way, so she has enough room. She will often go to sleep there while we work. She also jumps up on to the TV cabinet and lies in front of the screen when we're watching (obviously someone feels she is NOT getting enough attention!) When we get home from work, she runs into the bedroom and lies down on the moroccan rug and sticks one leg up so we can rub her tummy with our feet. We have taught her to put her face up when we say "Give Mummy a kiss" so we can give her a little peck on the lips! What a clever little Puddy-Doody!
I really need to lay off chewing on the potted plants for a while. Mum is getting a tad annoyed at having to clean where I've hurked up two days in a row. First time she nearly stepped in it when I did it in front of the dresser in her bedroom. She was NOT impressed!
