Tanya Part IITanya spent another night with me.
I love it when dogs that have been amped up or stressed out finally settle in for the night. They rotate around and around in the crate to find a cozy place and then hunker down. You hear a little bit of panting and then a long, deep sigh. Like they know they are safe and secure for at least the forseeable future.
We went to Starbucks this morning to see how she did with some strangers. She did well, although she was a bit jumpy when a loud person approached.
She still yelps and whips around with her head when touched firmly on her back, legs, head or sides. X-rays didn't show anything to help us understand this. Is she in pain or just a sensitive gal? Perhaps she might have been abused at some point in her past...
Now she is tossing me the ball, so I must go throw it. Good dog. Good human.
