Tessa's mom says: Tessa is a total sweetheart and is very gentle: a true lady. She can sit in your lap for hours on end and rolls over ever so slightly so you can rub her belly. She thinks that she's too mature for toys and doesn't really play with them (aggravating her mommy who bought too many), but she does love chewing on her bully stick. With her shy disposition, Tessa is not a big jumper or runner, but she does love climbing up to the back of the couch where she lays propped most of they day---that is, when she's not following her mommy around. When meeting new people she wags her tail at "half-mast," but within a few minutes she gains confidence and gets really excited.
