Thank you so much guys!! You guys are awesome - I've been wanting to talk and gush about her to anyone who would listen :p

Siege is such a beaut. Her personality you describe literally sounds perfect. How's she doing with Trent today? 8D What do you guys play in the fields?
They're doing well! They've been able to hang out in the same room together with her leashed and Trent loose. Trent has made me appreciate him even more now that I have her - I thought it would be a complete mess and he'd be obnoxious, never stop bothering her, loud, etc. I should give him more credit, he's been an angel. He goes about his day as usual and will leave her alone/the room alone if I tell him to.

His dog reactivity is also actually better now that she's here, probably because he's quickly learned ignoring dogs means lots of reward lol He's just been a very good dog. He's also hurt his leg somehow yesterday so he is on rest right now...but I took a walk with both of them for the first time this morning. Went great!! Got pulled this way and that, but overall they were very, very good.

It'll be a while before they can both run around together in the fields! Gotta work on recall first and just rewarding them for getting along.

Where is this trail/bridge/somewhere? I must walk it the next time I'm up around Portland, because I feel like the rest of the area must be awesome too. LOL. (I also feel like I hiked here or a place that looks a lot like this when I was up there)
Definitely not somewhere you've hiked at, this is just a 5 minute walk from my house and located at the fields/park we play in :D I love living here!! Come visit, we can take photos there!

Ah, the pics melt my heart!

Her markings, the dark over the shoulders, and the fluffy tail remind me of Pan.

Can't wait to see some training vids, you guys are going to have so much fun!
She is impossible not to love :) Training videos will happen soon, she's a blast to train and has me laughing the whole time. She's so enthusiastic and cute in everything she does.

Lucky you! I love breeders that take the time to find great homes for retired dogs. It can be such a great situation for everyone. It's how I got my first dog, though she was much younger and retired only because of pyo, but same type of deal. Good luck, she's one lucky girl and i'm talking about both of you :)
Thank you so much, I am really grateful the breeder trusted me to have her and is happy with how things turned out :) Makes me feel great, and now I have this amazing dog. I do not believe I would have gotten a dog like her, so ideal for what I wanted, if it had not been for the breeder messaging me. I'm very, very happy!!

So fricken happy for you, and amazing pictures!

I'm also super happy she's settling in so well for you! :D
Yesssss!!! Thank you, and for all your help! This two dog household thing is going better than I dared hope for, and I really appreciate the advice you and everyone else gave me!

Awww, Trent has pictures on that bridge. That makes me really happy for some reason.

What an awesome opportunity for you
It makes me happy, too <3 She's being welcomed into the family and getting her photos taken at all of my favorite spots for Trent :)

Can't believe my luck and the help and support I got.

She is beautiful, and I am so happy you finally have her!

I always admired her when she was at her previous home. I love how dark she is, and her face is so sweet <3

Both your dogs are so stunning, and Siege always looks so sweet and happy! I absolutely love her expression and how dark her coat is. I'm also glad that her and Trent are getting along so far. :D

Eeeeek. I'm really starting to fall in love get with her. I think she's starting to become one of my favorite Chaz dogs.

Yes. I just had to comment again on her again.

Thank you!! And yes, you and me both :) I remember when Maliraptor first announced she got her, I was in LOVE! She's even better in person, if you can believe it.

Thank you so much!! I definitely hope to do right by her, those who entrusted me with her, and everyone who helped make it happen!

Trent and Siege are definitely doing better and better with each other every day! Hopefully I'll be able to take some better photos of the two of them soon :D

She just looks incredibly sweet. Love her color!
Oh she IS. So, so sweet. This girl just makes me melt. She could be the worst behaved dog in the world and I'd still think she was perfect LOL

Thank you!! Yes! They're doing better than I had even hoped for, and everyone on Chaz helped me a lot with that. My family didn't really get why we had to take introductions so slow, but now they see :)

Haha nothing wrong with that, I totally appreciate it!!! I'm crazy about her, too!

Every time you post that bridge, I'm thinking, do I know that bridge?

Most of the bridges in the THPRD are built the same, but that one is longer than most!

I am in the area! It goes across Bronson Creek, I believe? It's very new though, I think they just finished it less than a year ago.

Okay, I know I keep only posting photos of her standing/sitting/lying around, but to be fair, it's HARD to play with her and take photos too! She likes to bounce on and off of me, and most pictures end up like this



Also, her and Trent are learning to coexist on the bed! It's pretty much not a problem, Trent usually moves off the bed because he doesn't like to share, but I want him to enjoy doing what he usually does.

I only stepped away to take a picture - I was by him the whole time feeding him treats, and Siege was leashed. And he's not lip lifting, just making a funny face lol




My incredibly good boy <3


And Siege being super adorable and spoiled. Love this off switch! She sleeps perfectly on my bed through the night

Thank you, me too <3 And she really is super happy and sweet all the time. A lot of fun to be around!

LOVE her!!! I'm so glad she's fitting in so seamlessly.
Me too, on both!!! I was SO worried, but it's all been working out so well :)

A few more photos from yesterday, of her and Trent!









She actually looks just as big as Trent in these photos, not sure how that happened LOL
