Tessie is doing great and we could not be happier with our new little girl.  As I write, she is curled up snuggling on the couch. It’s hard to imagine a better dog.

She spends her days tagging along after the kids and Amy and loves romping around chasing sticks in the backyard.  We’ve taken her on some long walks in the woods and she just loves to explore and chase squirrels.

She has a new dog bed in front of the fire and spends a lot of time just lounging there chewing on her toys.  And of course, at night she sleeps in our beds which is particularly nice on these cold winter nights.

We are looking forward to our first Christmas with her and she even has her own stocking hanging on the mantle.  Thanks again for bringing us together.  It’s hard to imagine someone leaving Tessie at a shelter, but we’re glad that we were lucky enough to be the family to give her the good home she deserves.

Warmest Regards,
The Elliotts
