We have realized that our first impression of their personalities was not correct. Annabelle is not the outgoing one. Sadie is. Beth (the one who gave us the dog) told us that Annabelle had a mothering personality. That is true. Annabelle is a bit apt to study the situation before jumping in. I mean that literally as well as figuratively. Take a look at some of their latest adventures.
They both love the water... once they get there. Sadie will follow us anywhere, almost any time. Annie doesn't like to get out when it's hot. I can't say I blame her. But if we go to the pond while the sun is high, Annie needs to be carried. If you put her down too soon, she'll run back to the house. The house is base. Sadie likes to be carried as well, but if you put her down she'll keep following.
Once at the pond, Sadie is first in. Ooooh that cool water feels good.
They can get pretty wild.
By the way, we highly recommend getting two puppies together. There has been no crying or whimpering from missing mom. They comfort and entertain each other. They are happy as can be.
