I am only responding because I did do as you asked,I will in turn ask you to look agian at your original post. Is there a chance perhaps that you could have worded it differently? Included more information that might have changed our responses? If you had perhaps worded your post differnently and included some of the information that is only now coming to light and stated that you were looking to be friendly not like you were seeking advice,I can tell you that my response would have been quite different.
Yes,if you were referring to Mika,she was fearful,through continued work and Kai's boldness she has gotten much better.Thank-you for your concern. I also appreciate that you did to some degree give weight to our advice and consult some professionals,that was really all I was asking of you.I also did mention in my original post that what seemed like fear,may be a non-issue,my approach in the beginning was simply better safe than taking a risk. No where did I suggest that you were a bad owner,that there was something terribly wrong with your dog,or that he was absolutely from a bad breeder,your response was to wait several months and come back insulting my dogs. Please do me the same courtesy that I did for you and look at how you could potentially responded differently and how it might have made a difference. If you are interested,Mika's fleeing in terror was simply to bark,then retreat to a,what she felt was a slightly safer location,the stairs next to the front door. She with continued reassurance and the help of Kai no longer does so,they do both however display the typical aloof to strangers behavior typical of the breed with the gas meter readers since our gas company seems to change them monthly. When we for several months got the same one,they were both fine and welcoming,allowed him to pet them,and didn't even bother to bark,except when he knocked on the door. Again,if in fact it was Mika you were concerned about she is doing much better. Have a good day,and thank-you for also trying to be helpful to our new guest with the young puppy,your knowledge and experience can certainly be helpful to others who need it.
