So I think she understands what is going on and who the alpha is I think she just likes to push me sometimes to see how far she can push. When she did that last night if felt like I stood there for 5 minutes in shock then I walked into the bathroom and cleaned my foot. After that I went and cleaned it up and went about the evening. I feel horrible like im leading her wrong and I dont want to confuse her! I have faith things will get better and me and her will get the hang of it!
    It is a long road,,,, stay consistent and she will fall into place

    @2BullyMama-I think things will get better too! It's so easy to feel frustrated and forget how far we have come but when I look back on just a week ago we really have made progress! She is being good today!

    It is 2 steps forward, 1 step back sometimes. But it is always going to move forward. I am not the most patient person and the saying " you don't get the dog you want, you get the dog you need" is so true. My Tooleybear has made me learn to become a more patient and forgiving (to myself) Bully mum. I am a better person for having her in my life but oh!! how I had to remind myself sometimes. In the meantime we are all here to support you getting through this.

    @Tooleysmom-Thank you for the support! I think we are getting the hang of it! Im sure it will be a long road but so worth it! She is just like my skin kids, sometimes you get pushed to the point you think your going to break but you never do and you just keep going and it gets better!

    Somehow I think this little bit of true wisdom you have written here will be passed on to many new Bully mums and papas that come to this site looking for reassurance and support. Well said!

    @Tooleysmom-I have learned that a lot of Lola's behavior I can relate to with my kids so I try to think if this were my skin kid how would I handle it and I go from there.
