Pixel Update week 2

t's time for a Pixel update!!

Since last Friday when we brought her home, Pixel has learning to trust us (me much more then Eric for now since I spend more time at home with her), but she comes when called, learned to lay down to get her collar on for her walks, knows how to sit before crossing streets or when I stop when we're on walks, she understands bones are hers now, and even takes special treats like pig ears!  She is quickly learning that strangers are 'good' and 'affection', so that is fantastic.

Freyja has also begun accepting Pixel, and they'll both sleep on the bed with me when I'm reading at night.  They'll also sniff and regard each others' faces up-close without fights, growling, hissing or any aggression which is SO great.  Freyja has also stopped giving me those 'I poisoned your coffee' looks haha.

I've been watching a lot of the Dog Whisperer, and am reading a book called Inside of a Dog which is a fantastic resource to learn about how a dog thinks, not how people think dogs think.  I highly recommend it, especially if you're finding your dog is anything less than what you want for a dog in your family.

Stay tuned for more Pixel updates in the future!
