Up, Up, and Away!
Ears Ears Ears!! Finally one of Scout's ears is up! The other one is still on the droopy side but hey I'm excited she has one up. It's been up for the past 2 days and I'm hoping it's hears to stay. The other ear is practically BEGGING to come on up, so fingers crossed for the next few days. On an additional note, she's the only chi in my household that has accepted/fallen in love with my Australian shepherd, Cooper. She curls up next to him and happily licks his face...while her sister Peanut huffs and puffs in the corner when this 'intruder' is allowed in 'her' play area. Though Scout met her 'cousin' (bf's brother's fiance's dog) and was not too thrilled. This dog is a friendly miniature schnauzer and I was kind of disappointed that the only thing Scout wanted to do was growl at him :( I clearly need to do more research in this area because I don't want to reward/yell at her for being scared (I was told this was a big no no). I just don't want her to be anything like Peanut (I love her to death, but she so poorly handles strangers and ANY other living dog). Actually, my little sister's friend came over yesterday and my social butterfly Scout went up to her with her tail wagging for attention. Peanut held back on the barking and went up and sniffed her, then ran away (a HUGE improvement since she normally throws a fit). I'm hoping Peanut learns a little from Scout ;)
