    aww Rooney is a doll - she reminds me of our Karly - is there any update on her progress? I really hope she has settled in a bit.


    Cheerio mates!

    Thank you for all the feedback everyone it has been great! I have not gone the crate route just yet, took her to camp bow wow for some play time and doggy pampering over the weekend, she's soft like a teddy bear now. She seems to be warming up a little or at least liking the attention a "little" more. Still think I will try the crate route, just a little nervous she will hid in there and I will lose the progress made so far. Decisions decisions

    So glad she is doing better! That's awesome! Crate souds like a good idea too. Since going to camp bow wow, she sounds better. Do you take her for walks everyday? THis would probably wear her out and settle her nervous energy a bit and bound with you more. Keep us posted!

    What at great news.... Baby steps, not too much change at once can be overwhelming for her. Keep up the great work

    As far as the walks I dont think she was ever on a leash before we got her, she's getting better but not great. I can let her outside and she roams around a little bit/goes potty and comes back in. Problem with the walks right now is we are in Minnesota and have had records low temps this year, it's basically been below zero here since the beginning of December. When it gets like this here there isnt much you can do outside. There is hope though next week they are talking 20's and 30's, to us that's almost shorts weather at this point!
