happy to report on this little lady we are making some progress. i owe it to her to stick with this and get her socialized and a little less crazy. doggie xanex anyone? after all she has gotten me through a rough patch in my road. we are bonding, she is getting into less trouble but it still is tempting sometimes. she has learned that her bathroom is outside now and is generally adjusting well. the barriers have come down off of the furniture. (hoping i don't regret this decision.) she comes when called and even gives us a tail wag most of the time. to achieve great things you have to put a little effort in or in her case a lot but we are getting there and we are so happy you are a part of our family.
