She is a sweety. She is also totally spoiled as my wife says (she blames me for the spoiling). For some reason, certain words make her ‘roo’. Her main words are Guava Melon, Chihuahua, and MAMA. Also if you make like Pavarotti and sing opera she will go off. (Pretty much anytime I sing she starts howling.) So I made a little Halloween story for her. She got extra treats for this.”
