Training is hard work!

I mean hard work!! Mom took me and Turner for our walk this morning. Then she hand fed me as usual. Well she had to go out for a bit so I just lounged outside. When she came home I was in my crate - half in/half out. She walked past me and closed the doggie door. Hey! Then she came over with a long lead and put it on me. Okay - what gives? Well I was pretty much tied to mom's hip all day. This was really upsetting to me at first. I kept watching the lead, it was on the ground and I didn't like it one bit. Mom sat on the floor with me. After about 30 minutes I sat on the dog pillow, another 10 minutes and I layed down on the pillow. After a while mom place her hand on my hip. I didn't move - actually I shook for quite a while. Mom yawned and didn't look at me and I stopped shaking!! Well, she did this a couple of times. I still jump when I get touched, but there is no petting involved so I calm down much quicker.

I'm still sleeping in mom's room every night. I've got my own pillow and blanket there. I go to bed around 8:30 every night. Mom comes in when she is ready for bed and takes me out for a potty break. Then I go back into her room for my pillow. Mom is so proud - she wishes she could hug me, but knows this would upset me too much. So she just tells me what a smart girl I am and gives me a Pupperoni.

While I was teathered to mom she trimmed my nails I don't mind - makes me creep through the house quietly at night!! Well guys I'm getting better every day. I make more and more eye contact and get closer to mom AND dad when they are in the house!!

I still have a long way to go, I just wish I could find a forever home to love me and help me along.
