I find it hard enough to understand human women but understanding a canine woman is much harder. Annie has always been a bit up and down with me, one day she is relaxed and the next she runs every time I come in the room? we thought this was because I am a bit clumsy due to my MS, I often drop things which scares Annie and I also walk a bit wobbly which can look like I am lunging at her. It has taken me getting a sore throat and blocked sinus to finally figure it out, it’s my voice!! my voice has become growly and deeper and she has been terrified when I speak, all it takes is me to talk like Mickey Mouse when addressing her and she loves me! Hamish and Indy are not sure that I am completely sane but Annie likes it. 🙂
Today we had to take Indy to the vet for the third of his four injections for arthritis, while I waited in the car with Hamish and Annie I reached back and was rubbing Hamish’s back and after a few seconds Annie started to vigorously lick my hand? she had only given a couple of tiny licks before, that was also in the car, after a while she pushed her nose under my hand and shoved my hand onto her head for a scruffle. 🙂 (yes, I had been talking like Mickey Mouse) Progress, I think. As can be seen in the above picture, Annie is getting fluffy again, she had all of her hair shaved after being rescued as she was in a terrible mess, she looks very cute but may need a trim soon?

Sunday 28th there is another fun dog show and reunion day at Glebe farm, the home of Love Underdogs. We will be taking Annie so that she can see the people and dogs that she was familiar with before coming to us, it will be interesting to see how she does. You never know, there could be an adopter there for her?
