Telling my girl "I love you"
She's my life and my love no matter what scars I have on my body from our work together it is going to hurt very badly saying goodbye to her on tuesday.
Here we are shopping together at Costco.
I purchased a new collar for her that is called "Halti" It has a strap that goes around her neck like a basic collar and some straps around her nose area. It keeps her head and neck area still. She can still pull me but the idea is to keep her at my side and train her to not pull away from my side. I've been slowly working with her with permission from our trainers. she's done quite well but has done a whole body pull rather than a head pull and at 70$'s she is a strong girl. But we're doing better.
Tuesday early afternoon a Trainer from GDD will be coming here and talk to me and los of questions and paperwiork. We will also work a short route. I might take her to the hospital I have my infusion in and walk the halls and show her how Leone and i work together. then I ahve to say goodbye to Leone. she will be flying back to Palm Springs and endure some Evaluation and possible training. If they can't fix her pulling problem they will keep her. if it can be fixed she will be returned to me. that is my goal to ahve her brought back to me.
In all of our time together distractions by mostly dogs on the roads or in the aprk are our main issue. she will pull to go play with the other dog hence me getting inuured.
