I would have written sooner...don't worry, mom's not starving me...and I get to run...but getting her to tell ya what I have to say....well me oh my! What a chore! *Sigh*
My life right now is so sweet. I have never been the most social 4 legged. I was always high strung. I learned to fight with my brother when he came home and though mom worked hard...I couldn't stop fighting.
Finally I got really ill, then I had to go to sleep. When I woke up, mom was right there, and my tummy really hurt, but I felt better than I had.
A set aside here, I always wanted to make friends, but somehow every single time I tried, something bad happened or I got angry...and SNAP! I felt awful later. Mom kinda gave up hope.
A year ago after my sleeping time, I got really well. And I noticed I wasn't so angry anymore. Mom was still really cautious. But I so wanted her to know I was trusting her to teach me. I wasn't angry any more, cause I didn't hurt so much every so often.
Mom showed me how to just walk away when my brother was being rotten. Just walk away. Then I saw mom get really angry with Koda and make him "YOU GO LAY DOWN RIGHT NOW" and when he wouldn't (and in the beginning I doubted he would...he can be sooo bossy! I watched) MOM MADE HIM!! I got so comfortable not fighting my bro and I began playing again.
But I still had no "outside" friends. This really cool guy came into our lives for awhile last year. He would howl with us from the waterway by our house. Then he came into the house, we knew him right away. I think Mom has known him a long time, we just never got the memo...anyway...after a year of NO FIGHTING....I have my dream...MY FIRST OUTSIDE FRIEND!!
I spent the last two days with my friend. Yesterday Mom, and Dennis took my new friend and I for long walks. Tiny,is his name. We walked on leashes up and down the street...swear I thought mom was gunna cry.
At first dogs in fences scared me, Tiny just showed me to walk on and ignore their rude comments...today...MOM TOOK ME OFF LEAD. TINY AND I PLAYED IN THE RIVER...WE SNIFFED POOP, WE SNIFFED POLES, WE SNIFFED AND WE SNIFFED AND WE SNIFFED. Oh sure...sometimes they called us back...but together we sniffed for miles. I have my first OUTSIDE FRIEND...AND MOM SAID "TAYA...YOU ARE NOW THE DOG I TRUST!!" ME!! What a dream come true....still think mom's gunna cry before it's over.
