Can you ask the daycare people tomorrow to pay attention to Jazz' play style? It's clear that you shape her behavior with dogs when you're present and maybe all the exposures can work together.

It's nice to see your girl in her colorful shackles.

Shackles rofl frown can't wait for her to be trained well enough to be off leash!

I think it does make more sense that this is amped up stuff, and lack of socialization. Before she went to daycare, she did play different though, o it is at play here, in some way.

The shower, I hear you Jean, congratulations laugh I am working on her letting me close the door, it's such a process!

Today, monday, and also fridays, are crate days. O do think good thoughts for her! I hope to talk with them at daycare, but o far, she isn't playing there much, and is till fairly anxious.

One thing I learned at the picnic lat week - if a 16 pound dog lunges while you aren't paying attention, do not correct her with the force you would for an 80 lb GSD frown

Yesterday, I gave her the broth soaked kibble in a kong. I packed it too tight, so she couldn't work the kibble out, o it didn't work so well.

Tried leaving her in the car today while I ran into the store. She barked a lot when I left, was quiet when I got out, which was good. However, she had jumped into the back cargo area when he had to pee from the anxiety. At least she pee'd in the best possible spot for cleanup.

I guess this is just going to be the new normal for awhile, as it *hopefully* slowly gets better...

I suppose it's good that Jazz isn't an anxious pooper! laugh

Thank you Elvi hugging

Joanne, she was at first, but we seem to be past that part, as well as mostly past the "throw up" part, thank goodness!

She has fear, and that's just hard frown

I have to read about Jazmine, I have to know how she is, but I wish to heaven it was easier on both of you. Her sweet life will be hugely different some months from now-it's the getting from here to there.

Maybe she would like a kitten?

I know what you mean MJ.

LOL, she would probably love a kitten. Too bad I am incredibly allergic to cats (but not kittens)! I think, at some point, she will need a companion, but that's down the road quite a ways.

It seems like such a long, hard journey. But if you go back and read earlier posts, I bet you would be surprised how far you two have come together.

And all that with healthy problems, too!

Jazzy is so sweet and you are so right for her.

Thank you Bonnie, she has grown up quite a bit, and we really have come a long way.

I just made an appt with my very accomodating, Tuesday only vet that puts up with me. It seems worthwhile to get a thyroid baseline. I do not think it would be low enough to require supplementation, but sure want to see what it's doing, and if there are any antibodies. The appt is in 1 month, she books up pretty fast. I hope she will go along with it.

I just realized, that will be real close to her 1st birthday, so not bad timing.

Anyone know when puberty hits in a small breed dog?
