For a dog that is skittish around new people, Angie was remarkably unfazed by me donning a full beekeeping outfit with hat and veil. Gloves do not bother her either. It took my boy dog several times before he stopped finding me scary in the bee suit so I am surprised by Angie's instant acceptance.
Angie also had her first bath, which was a big and unpleasant surprise for her. She fought me but did not offer any aggression; she just wanted to get away. I did manage to stay nominally drier than her. Nice to finally have a clean little girl.
Still working on name recognition and housetraining. She is doing so great on the leash but now barks back at the aggressive (fenced) neighbors' dogs. She also barks at my one neighbors' dogs. I am working with her to train her to bark only to alert and then be quiet.
So we've had Angie for almost two weeks now. Yuki and I are rather enjoying having a silly little girl here.
