Well I think we are slowly beginning towards the road to victory! :) She ate nearly all of the canned food and then I added the second cup on that we'd pulled out and she finally ate all of that last night too! Whoo Hoo! Then this morning she's eaten about half of her food, so we are moving forward! :)
I guess it was because I think I trust in her so much already and it didn't even rattle her as it did with both Honey and Rei, especially with the check with them slamming on their brakes right in front of us, both dogs were obviously rattled, but were able to stay composed to get us to the curb and quickly regained their composure. I was seriously impressed with Favor, as she kept right on working, staring down the car and picking her way carefully on how to get around the vehicle and quickly found the up curb, stopping and looking up at me like, “what’s next????” and we went on our way to the next check.
Then we went back to the horseshoe for another walk before our night walk there tonight. Not sure what was up, she did great all the way around until we got to the big bush and kept trying to take me through it. We re-worked it a couple of times and then she took me around. If you see pine needles in my hair tonight after the night walk, you'll know we tangled with the bush and lost. LOL! :) I'm guessing she'll be fine tonight though; she is a super smart cookie and doesn't normally make a mistake more than once!
Lunch was awesome, just now I'm getting sleepy as we wait for the next round. ;)
After lunch, we went outside and groomed the dogs with the new tools we'd bought from Petsmart and then got to see Miss S again! I asked Greg if we could sit the the two of them together and then we took pictures of the sisters together!
We went to dinner and knowing what was coming up, tried hard to remain calm. It was time, as the three of us loaded up in the van with Greg and headed back to the horseshoe. We unloaded and Greg put reflector vests on all three of us and put blinker lights on the dogs harnesses too. The two went one way and Favor & I took off the other direction around the horseshoe. We made our way around the large circular block and there were multiple vehicles over the sidewalk and trash day was the next day too so lots of cans out. Favor really did a great job- took me around the bush, slowly over the break in the sidewalk, and around the 2 vehicles completely over the sidewalk and between the trash and vehicles in another spot. I didn't have any pine needles in my hair tonight! :)
After we all made it completely around the block, we loaded up in the van and headed back to the Foundation for a last break and called it a night. I know I was ready for bed after this long day!
