Thank you for your quick response. I just added some new pix to my album, if you want to check out my profile. I think she's the most adorable thing I've ever seen, but I guess I'm a little biased... Patience is definitely needed! This forum has helped so much, though. My favorite piece of advice was " if your puppy consistently has accidents in the house you should roll up a newspaper, wrap a rubber band around each end, and smack yourself in the head, repeating " i should have watched my puppy better, i should have watched my puppy better.."" I love that! So far, so good. She has learned to sit and is working on stay. I am having a problem with getting her to come when called, if you have any tricks up your sleeve...please let me in on the secret!
