Haitia is the name she came with (pronounced HAY-sha). We’re actually not quite certain of the spelling, but she does answer to it. She’s a really well-trained dog already, but is having a few adjustment issues. Given time, she’ll get used to us and we to her. She obeys quite well, and has a good deal of energy. She and the neighbor dog have reached some kind of agreement as well, so things seem to be working harmoniously.
Of course, already there is a bit of jealousy between son #1 and dog #1, at least as far as son #1 is concerned. But he’ll have to work through that as well, and he might as well do it now, given that a new brother or sister is stepping on the scene in a few months.
