Emma is a huge sweetheart. She has gotten really used to us and our resident dog, Sunni. From the day she was dropped off to today, she has turned a huge corner.
I would say she isn't happy yet all the time like other Goldens, but she has many more happy moments than she used to. We certainly show her a ton of love. She has started wagging her tail and greeting me when I get home, which melts my heart.
She is most active in the morning. She likes to follow me around on my morning routine, and she likes to steal things she isn't supposed to have, like my makeup brushes, clothing, and anything else she can find.
She's like a puppy in an older dog's body--I think she thinks everything is a toy. I tell her, "No, no," but she doesn't listen too well. She hasn't destroyed anything yet, but we are working with her on this habit without trying to scare her. She does still frighten easily.
Things Emma likes: food, bones, walks, hanging out with us, watching TV, playing with chew toys, and when we put her up on the couch (we think).
Things Emma doesn't love: change, new people*, riding in the car, going to new places, walking in front of anyone, and when Sunni barks really loudly when they are outside.
*She is definitely not aggressive or anything; she just has a hard time trusting people, so when we have company over, she is usually in a corner where she can see everything, or she excuses herself from the room.
We love her lots. She is a good girl.
