    im thinking that for some reason abby thinks that you are the one and only one she has to do anything for. now she has to learn to do this for others so i would stop walking her myself and just go when others walk her. give her the idea that your not going to be the only one doing it. then have them try it alone. i have no idea why she would stop walking for them unless she has learned that mama is her only caregiver. also does anyone else do anything for her but you. does anyone else feed her or pet her love her alot. i would get others involved in her daily care instead of just you. have your mom come over and feed her sometimes or your son. teach her that its ok for others to do things for her. step back as her main caregiver some and see if this helps.

    Mom has always given her lunch and her afternoon meds. My son plays with her constantly and loves on her more than I do. She kisses them but not me I give her the important meals, 6am and 6pm feedings (important because that's when she gets the bulk of her supplements), I do the IV fluids every night and she sleeps with me.

    I guess I could try letting him put the bowl down at night. He could do her bedtime applesauce too, there's only 1 thing to add to that and it's pre-measured. Maybe that will help?

    hm is she feeling ok. sometimes sarah will want mama when she is not quite herself. she will be like glue to me. puzzling for sure. well then just let them walk her with you with them and yes let them do more for her in regards to her care maybe that will help. wow she will kiss them but not you. hm sarah dont kiss noone so she is just aloof lol. i kiss her all the time. she licks us though. well dear i hope things improve.

    I agree with cowsmom. Hope you find what works for Abby. If all else fails involve them with you in an obedience class. Best of luck...
    Otis you'll never know how much I love you I love you more then all the leaves on all the trees

    Beefy is like that also, he'll only do stuff for me. It breaks my sons heart because he wants to do things with Beefy. so, what I did was gave my son Bryce, a dab of peanut butter in a bowl. He say in the floor and finger fed the peanut butter to Beef. It kinda let them bond. Now Beefy will cooperate with Bryce. It reminds me of a show that use to be on with a dinosaur baby that would say "not the mama, not the mama".

    I wish I knew something that worked, but have no idea. We are having the same issue now...Frank refuses to walk with me but will walk with my husband. However, most of the time Frank is stuck to me like glue. Dogs are definitely funny. If you find a technique that works so Abby will walk with the rest of your family members, let us know!

    Yeah, she will But if she sees me as "the boss" then it might make sense. No one wants to kiss their boss lol

    I wonder if she just needs more bonding with them. Let your son give her dinner and treats, she might need to see him as boss too

    Eagerly and Nervously awaiting the homecoming of Bruno Cannoli
