Introduction / Newsletter Start

Just wanted to say thank you for the 4 part article on bonding!  I am a brand new glider owner, and my girl Indie is about 4 years old.  I couldn't seem to find the answers to the questions I had about older gliders and bonding, but after reading your article I am much more confident and feel much more secure in my knowledge of what her needs will be over the next few months as we really get to know each other.  Thanks again!!!
