Mama is so proud of me. See, I's scared of uvver peeples. Peeples tha's not my mama or my furmily. When mama an I is walkin an uvver peeples comes 'round I barks an tries to hide behind mama. The peeples 'lways wanna pet me an it scares me cuz I don' know 'em. Mama tries to tell the peeples to jus i'nore me an lets me sniff 'em before they tries to touch me but they don' listen.
Well, 2 times now the peeples listened an I's getting braver wif 'em.
We went to a park an there were some big kids playin. Mama tole 'em to jus i'nore me an they did. I went by 'em but I dinnit bark. I watched 'em. I was kinda curious but too scared to go too close. Mama was very happy.
Today we was at a church where we plays. A man came ina car (he was the pastor of the church). Mama tole him I's skittish wif strangers so he jus talked wif mama fur a few minutes. I sniffed him a little an then I let him get my ball an frow it fur me. I even let him pat me ona head--1 time.
As we was walkin home I seed 2 peeples an I watched 'em but I walked right by. No barkin or hidin.
I's gettin braver!!
aww...you are getting braver!! It takes time and nothing to worry about, all in time!!!
That is so great Bear!!! :D Your momma should be very very proud of you!
You's & me has the 'ESACT same problem. I's too doesn't trust stangers until I's had a chance to sniff them on my own! I's too is a 'nipper' if they's trys to touch me without my 'pawmission. I's thinks it's rude to try & touch a pup without getting 'pawmission!
Thank you all fur yer support.
Petey, Yep, I's learnin, NOW if on'ly the peeples would listen to mama.
Tiki, my mama is SO VERY PROUD OF ME. She jus a smilin an huggin me an tells me alla time.
Ceeley, it's nice to know I's not the on'y doggy like this. I 'gree, the peeples should wait fur pawmission.
Yay, Bear!!! :o) You are just a very smart and cautious doggie! I'm glad you're feeling more comfortable around people - especially those that actually *listen* to your momma's instructions! ;o)
