Lights! Curtain Up!

Introducing Miss Diana Ross! This small girl really is a Supreme! She may have “started her life in an old, cold rundown tenement slum” (hoarding situation) but she decided “ain’t no mountain high enough” to keep her from a better life. In short order she learned how to adapt to living in a home  with a fellow collie and little terrier mix and has proven to be a “baby love”. 

She learned housebreaking and lets you know when she needs to go out, but she enjoys the yard to romp around too. She plays well with her collie brother and as much as she likes her little terrier brother, she leaves him alone when he’s not interested in engaging. 

This girl is confident and loves to explore new situations, but she responds quickly to re-direction. She comes when called from outside  pretty readily too. Diana learned on her own to go up and down the stairs to see what’s going on, and jumps in and out of a car with ease. She’s a pretty calm passenger too. She walks on a loose leash and doesn’t mind the suburban traffic environment. She likes her crate and is fine eating in it, and  quickly “goes home” when asked. She likes toys and other dogs and the sofa - although she gets off when asked. 

But she REALLY like people. She greets newcomers calmly and likes attention and will follow you to check out what you’re up to. 

What Diana does not like are the vacuum cleaner, lawn mowers, a noisy hair dryer - really any sort of racket things - but she settles after a bit. She also doesn’t like the squirrels who dare to play in her back yard. That’s when she speaks up - or when the neighbors come home. But it’s more of a “hello there!” bark. Otherwise, she keeps her singing voice on mute. 

She’s learning to “sit” and has learned to accept treats for training. Her pretty coat is growing back nicely after her initial extensive grooming. 

Miss Diana (affectionally called DeeDee) is ready to “star” on a new home stage.  “You can’t hurry love?” When it comes to this girl, you should!
