I'm here to tell you what has been going on with me the last few weeks. The first weekend in March, I went to a meet-and-greet. When we first went in, I was really scared and shaking. By the time we left, I was really liking all of the attention, and the shaking had stopped.
I really need to get out into the public more, but now since we cannot be out in the public until this virus stuff is gone, I am just going on walks out here in the country, which is going really well. I like going on walks and I walk very nicely.
When I went to see the good doctor, he said that for being an outside dog, I was in really good condition. I weighed 64 pounds. If you look at me, you would think that that was a good weight for me, but if you feel my ribs, you can literally put your fingers in all of my ribs. So Foster Mom upped my food. I am really liking that.
I was neutered, and that has made a huge difference in my markings in the house. The marking is now down to zero. I was not house trained when I came here, and that is also down. The pooping in the house has stopped and the peeing is almost non existent.
The times I have peed in the house lately was basically, in my defence, really not my fault. I was just not taken outside to do my duty in time, and you know as well as I do that when you have to go, you have to go. So this is a very huge success for me.
I am slowly learning that some things are just not as scary as I thought they were, but some things are still real scary. I'm not quite sure why this is, but I tend to really like the male humans better that the female ones. At the meet-and-greet, I gravitated toward the males more than females.
Foster Mom and Dad are really thinking that there was/were a female(s) in my short life that has done some not very nice things to me that I did not like. I will let Foster Mom love on me when I do pass here (I really do like pets and lovin'), but I very seldom come to her when she calls me to come. However, if Foster Dad calls me to come to him, I will do so.
Foster Dad has taught me the "sit" command and he is really proud of me, as is Foster Mom, but when she asks me to sit, I will not do so very often. She told me not to worry and that she will assure me that she will teach me that females are really not bad people.
So, you can see that I really have come a long way since I first came to my wonderful foster home. I still have some work to do with being scared, but I am slowly learning.
I really am a love bug and will make a good companion for a lucky person or family. When all of this virus stuff is over, I would love to be your love bug and companion.
