Hey all! They past 14 months in this home has been great. Yeah, I know I get hormonal, but mom understands.
So recently, since I have been so good, behavior and helping her, she decided to make me her Service Animal. She says that I do such a good job helping her, by keeping her calm and letting her know when she needs to take a time out. I do all this MY way though. The only way I can get her to LISTEN to me is Body Language. I poof up to tell her she's nervous/stressed to let her know to calm down...I let her know when someone is getting within her comfort zone behind her by doing 2 circles....I let her know to take a time out by kissing her ear.
I do all these things cuz she needs me. And i need her! The plus side of all of this? WHat do I get out of it? I get to go a LOT of places! I get snacks all day for doing good. I get to meet a LOT of new people, that get to hold me if they want. i don't mind other people holding me, as long as i can see momma. If I can't see her, i can't do my job, and so i SCREAM! They usually get the point after that.
So, momma has issues in her life...but who doesn't? I know what she needs to be happy...I know my momma, and I love her despite the problems...because she loves ME despite MY problems!
