Mom left me for the whole night this past weekend. She said it would do me and Julian good. We have been ignoring eachother and have not bonded. Mom knows its because I am totally submissive and timid and I really need people to show me happy energy and love before I will engage with them. Julian hasn't done that, but he's not been mean either, he just doesn't speak dog.
Auntie Xanthie rescued me from Julian. I was super happy to see her and came straight to her even though Julian was there. I was super happy she was there! It was the first time Julian saw that happy sweet side of me and he was startled. Auntie Xanthie got on his case and told him he could have that lovely welcome home everyday if only he put the time in to show me he cares about me. Since then Julian's been making an effort..but we are both unsure. Mom's hopeful.

More excitingly we met Jacob in the park today, he's a big 2 year old Husky. He's a little shorter than me but he's much heavier. We greeted eachother then he wanted to play. Ive been practicing playing with Mom. I watched the dogs in the park all last week and I get it now! But I was not ready to play with Jacob, he put a paw on me an he was heavy! I walked away. He's a nice boy but he's got to be more gentle with me, he doesn't know his own strength and it intimidated me a little.

We went to see Roudolf today. He's my doctor. I had a jab today so I am all ready to play with others now without fear of catching things. I was very good for Roudolf today and didn't fuss at all when the needle went in. I had to show him I am not such a big softy as I was last week when i pretended my foot was broken (and it was just a tlittle cut from a horn)

I met a Greyhound on Saturday. Her name was Sally and she was very quiet and pretty..... momma would like to get a Greyhound but dad says that one big dog in our little house is enough.
