Pumpkin is the newest addition to my parents family. She is still a puppy (I believe she is about a year old) and is very rambunctious. She hasn't taken to potty training very well, and does not like to be around strangers. We can only take her on a walk when it is not busy, otherwise she will get distracted by barking and "defending herself". She also does not like to eat food out of a bowl, but to throw it onto the ground and then eat it off the floor. Although she can be very cuddly during the day, she gets very rambunctious at nighttime. She is not very good with the younger children, as she likes to tackle them down and attempt to bite them. Overall, the experience with Pumpkin is very mixed. We are hoping that she will grow out of the rambunctious behavior as she gets older, and that she will learn to go to the bathroom outside eventually.
