As it turns out, Angie is paper-trained. I had a newspaper on the living room floor that was supposed to go into the recycling bin. I came home from work to discover (immediately obvious by the smell) that some one had diarrhea. I found all the mess conveniently located on the paper - easiest clean up ever! Addition of pumpkin and yogurt to Angie's diet for the next few days and that diarrhea cleared right up.
The other exciting news on the Angie-front is that Angie is learning to sit! I tried working on this with her early on but she was so resistant to sitting that I quickly abandoned the effort. Given her skittishness when I first starting fostering her, I did not want to try to force the issue at all. Two nights ago, though, when I was working with Claire on her newest trick (I say "beep, beep" and she walks backwards), Yuki came over to get in on the treat action and Angie joined him. After a few minutes of observing the proceedings, Angela offered a sit! I have not put a command to it yet, but she is sitting more than 50% of the time if I show a treat and hold it near her.
It's been a fun two days, working with all three dogs on new tricks.
And who knows, maybe knowing a few tricks will make Angie more attractive to a potential adopter. I'd love her to have her forever home before Christmas.
