Everyone who has met Oakland Crystal has fallen in love with her. This last week she ran off leash with no muzzle for the first time, and she ran and ran laps. She was so happy, and afterwards lay in the kiddie pool with a big smile.

Crystal is still not totally comfortable with stairs, but in other respects is doing well. She is a good eater, is friendly and outgoing as well as playful, although calms easily. She has no problem with her teeth, ears, and nails being attended to, and is good with other dogs. Last week a small dog licked her face (muzzled), and she just wagged her tail. She also has no separation anxiety.
