    Dogs live in the present, yes they have memories of the past but they live in the present so the memories you are making for her now are what she will go on. She will get over her past because you are replacing those bad times with love, safety and building her trust in you ... she will forever be happy and grateful!!!

    In my opinion...I don't think they "remember" the past. I think what they remember are actions. If she was hit...the raising of the arm will cause her to react. The same way that reaching for the food bowl causes them to react...knowing that action is getting them to be fed. I think it's all in the routine. Reaching for the leash means going to the car. Reaching for my purse means Vegas needs to get in his kennel.

    Some dogs may react when a person picks up a stick. To some it means its going to be thrown and to others it means they are going to get whipped.

    I was told long ago that dogs have no concept of time. That's why when we walk out the door to check the mail....excitement erupts when you walk back in.

    But then again.....how are dogs that have been lost remember their way home after months or years on the road. We've all heard those types of wonderful stories. Is that remembering or is that something else?

    I forgot to add....Jeannie, Sally melts my heart. She is just adorable.

    Thank you ladies, I know they remember but deep in your mind you wonder if they remember events like we do. I never thought of it that way. I'd like to believe that good or bad they do remember, heck how would they know who I am afterall? I know, not quite the same.

    She melts my heart too.
