Coquina Comes Out Of Her Shell

Imagine if everything were new, imagine if you were suddenly removed from your present life, and plopped into a new place, with new people. You’ve got to figure out everything. If you’ve traveled to other places, where people speak other languages, and where people are embedded in a different culture, you know something of how such a sudden change might seem.


If you’re a literate grownup, reading this, you’re used to a lot of things, from your ABC’s to clouds and cars and clothes. You’re not scared of walking on a floor. You know how to take care of yourself, and you know who your family and friends are.

Our new little Coquina dog has just had such a sudden change. You saw in two previous posts what her first few days were like, how she has been learning about her new life, and how she has been getting more confident with every passing day.

The lawn was an early victory.

She’s smart, and observant. It took her about a day to learn her new name. Now she’s learning ours. She’s eager to please, and so are we.

There’s a big world to learn about.


Let’s go!

  1. Love, love, love your puppy commentary! I also love your pure joy in exposing her fascinating developing puppy brain to new things. If every puppy had you guys in their youth, there would be far fewer troubled dogs.
