Thanks for the nice wishes. Actually, the little girl in the pictures is my niece. She lives next door but spends lots of time at our house and thinks Nugget belongs to her too. The sweet thing is that Nugget came into our lives at a perfect time. My niece's family had a very elderly cocker spaniel who had passed away a couple of months before we got Nugget. Even though Nugget couldn't ever take the place of their pet, she filled some of the void in her own special way. She has truly become an extended family pup...gives and receives much love to the entire family.
