When she first arrived, Kaci was a fearful dog. I was fearful also before coming here, having had to move from here to there often with no permanent thing (even a bed or a toy) to call her own. The kill shelter must have been mortifying. After a month, she’s starting to feel at home here.
Yesterday as He worked, she plopped herself into her bed and relaxed and slept. She has a long way still to go but she’s not going potty in the house as much (the little diarrhea episode on the living room couch yesterday was an exception). She’s also more comfortable expressing herself (bark, bark, bark).
It doesn’t look like it from the pictures, but the one thing about her that drives ME crazy is that the first thing in the morning, my old bones are creaking and it takes a while to get ready for breakfast but she’s so active. She could solve the energy crisis by herself. She pulls at my beard in an effort to get me to frap with her. Why is she sleeping during the day when we’re supposed to be begging for food and wide awake in the early morning when she should be sleeping?
