I am BEYOND proud of Dana! I went to take out her spay sutures last night with Sean’s help and she readily lied down on her side and made not one peep or movement the whole time we were taking them out! WOW! WOW! WOW! She was so relaxed, she almost fell asleep even when there was a slight pinch on one or two of the stitches being removed. This is the Dane that I had to literally WWF hold to take blood for a HWT when she first arrived. I just wanted to scoop her up and kiss her to pieces with how much she has come to trust and love!!!! We continue to work on her obedience and her new forever loving home is going to have to realise that this girl needs structure, routine and order in her home with NILIF for to give her an inch and she is going to run a mile. She has no qualms about trying to ‘boss’ another dog around if she feels that she can be amused by it….sigh OR if she can get that prime ‘real estate’ spot on the bed. She knows what she is doing and she will look straight at us afterwards, almost to say ‘yeah, and what are you going to do about it!’ LOL She then finds out….again, that she is going to get removed from the bed or whereever she is and have a ‘time out’ and what a goober! She is just so honest in her intentions and she makes me laugh every day. She also is great about keeping me on my toes! LOL She still ‘jumps’ on people and did so when we had guests over on Saturday night and that remains one of the biggest things we work on. She does not do it when it is only us with her and so we continue to work on the ‘excitement’ jump with her. This girl has been one of the most incredible experiences I have had at BHRR. She is just magnificent and I am most assuredly going to miss her when she is adopted. It will not be long now before she is no longer in need of us here and it will be time for her to be put up for adoption. I look at that day with mixed emotions……. 🙂
