parmelbe Posted February 9, 2016 Share Posted February 9, 2016 (edited) Hello, all, Realized it's been a while since I shared anything about Betsy and seeing as we've had her for a little over 6 months now I think it's high time to move up to this section. Her hair has grown in nicely since the trim she got before we found her and the shave for her surgery. I've been grooming her by hand using rubber gloves and a Furminator. She's still a bit of a princess, particularly when it comes to getting attention. When we try to leave the house she'll come and sit on our laps or nose aside hands that are trying to tie shoes. She's gotten very good at picking up on when we're on our way out. When she doesn't get her way she either forces her head under our hands or retreats to her chair and glares across the room very sulkily. Breakthrough! She sort of plays now. I've been able to get her to chase me around our little apartment. She'll whine, snort, and yelp, which seem to be the only noises she really makes. When I crawl around with her she jumps around and fakes at me like she's playing with another dog. Not sure if I'm doing it right, but she seems to enjoy it and has even started initiating playtime. She isn't anywhere near as outgoing or headstrong as some of the dogs described here but she's a very happy little girl. Some recent glamor shots: and the blooper reel: Here's a "before" picture from the day before we signed adoption papers Edited February 9, 2016 by parmelbe 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
