When Du left Ju Guo in Beijing, she had placed a small blanket in the crate with her to give her comfort while flying. When Ju Guo arrived at her new house in America, she knew where this blanket had been placed - in the laundry room. She 'told' Lori that she wanted to go in to the laundry room and when Lori let her in there, Ju Guo tried to climb on to the laundry to where the blanket was. Lori placed the blanket in Ju Guo's new bed and just this act of familiarity enabled Ju Guo to sleep for hours, gently snoring,
After a long night's sleep, Ju Guo began to bond with her new daddy Howard by going voluntarily to sit besides him at breakfast. It may take a while for Ju Guo to settle in. She and Du had a very strong bond but once she does start to settle she'll be able to fulfil why her Chinese mommy wanted her to live in America - so that she can go wherever she wants without worrying about being too big or the wrong breed and having laws to protect her. Fun will come.
