Thanks LS. =) I often wonder if you fellow CP members have any idea just how much your support means to me.
And yup, Eve is here to stay. I may not be fostering for a while now, as 2013 will be a very busy year for us already; but still plan to be involved as much as I can helping with transport and cross-posting to spread the word of other dogs in need. Now that the pups are weaned, Eden has already settled back in with the pack and is doing so well. I have complete faith that Eve will adapt, too; and having her so young will make things much easier as I can start training early.
Meanwhile I get to be the dork that gives my puppy a thumbs up when she potties on the pad properly or does something otherwise good... I'm gonna need to do my research on more hand signals, that's for sure, LOL!
