M.L. Posted July 22, 2007 Report Share Posted July 22, 2007 Oops, the title should say 2 Year Anniversary! I just want to give a huge thanks to all of those who gave me advice about Willow when I first brought her home from Pima County Animal Control two years ago. She was a mess - severe separation anxiety, attacking my dogs, attacking any dog that came near me, lifeless, no spirit, didn't play with toys, didn't run around with the other dogs, fearful, couldn't go to the dog park, etc., etc., etc. I think it took her about 6 months to even pull her tail out from between her legs and wag it at me. It has been two years since July 7th that she has been with me. She has come a long way in the past two years. We are still working on some things, but she isn't fearful of everything anymore. She doesn't attack my dogs. She goes to the dog park and doesn't even growl at other dogs anymore. She goes into her crate on her own and doesn't cry and bark like crazy trying to get out. She runs and plays and chews on bones. She acts silly and goofy and gets excited. She has such a personality now! We have started herding and we start agility in September. She has traveled to Colorado, San Francisco, and New Jersey. She is just the most wonderful dog now! I think of all those rescues who just need time to adjust, who need someone who will work with them and be patient. People who don't give up on their dogs. It may take a year or even two, but in the end it is so worth it. Thank you to all of those patient, caring people. Thank you to the rescuers and volunteers. Thank you to everyone here who cares about doing what is best for their BCs and all dogs in general. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
