Bonded: to connect, hold together
Banta is good at making connections with others. She is of course bonded to us as her puppy raisers. She loves to have snuggle time either taking a nap or curling up between you legs while you sit on the ground.
Banta would get very excited in the evening when she would hear the garage door open. She would run to the window to look out or run to the door to wait for Bill to come in. At her last puppy class before leaving for San Rafael one of the other raisers commented on how bonded she is to us. I know that she will make that same kind of bond with someone else in her future.
