Katherine Pele of Austin - Our second wolfhound
was Katie, she joined our family when she was 6
months of age in September 1989.   She was a very
timid puppy.... frightened of everything.  The first few
months was hard on all.  She had only known her
previous family and at 6 months she was going
through a very shy period in her life. Unlike Koa,  
Katie had not been socialized, a ride in the car was
terrifying to her.   Good behaviour was reinforced
with positive rewards and with gentle but firm
training Katie blossomed.   Katie was never again
afraid of strangers around the time she was 1 year
old.  She was such a positive out going personality
that it was hard for anyone that knew her to believe
she was anything else.   Katie was very special to
us...beyond words.  In March of 2000, Katie was
humanely relieved of her pain, when the battle to
defeat cancer was no longer possible.  She was just
over 11 years of age when we had to say good-bye
on one of the most tear full days of our lives.  It had
been raining all day and stop raining when Katie join
our beloved Koa at Rainbow bridge.  Katie was our
first heart hound.
