Well, it turns out that Casey did have a haircut before she came into RAGOM. She's starting to grow out her coat and she's going to be a very pretty soft gold, I think. Too soon to know for sure. Her little golden mohawk still sets her apart from the crowd.
Casey is the absolute happiest when she can play outside with our pack. She gets so excited she actually dances -- she possibly enjoys our big male dog the best, but she's equally enthralled with our new foster puppy, and from our experience, not every dog enjoys a puppy barking and asking to play.
A few weeks ago, we had company who had brought their dog and we were absolutely stunned that Casey came over to meet him. She is so happy and social with dogs, but she still has a ways to go to learn to trust people.
Her favorite spot is under the dining room table still, which she alternates with another safe spot in the living room. We've developed some good routines, and she has impeccable household manners.
To help Casey be more comfortable around people, we've started her on a medication that we think will help her relax and join in the household activities a bit more. We'll keep you posted.
