For those that remember the remember the issues I have been having with my rescue GSP Mia, here is a quick update. Yesterday morning she happily played in her pen with a 9 month old GR bitch. This was the first time they have met properly. Mia's communication was brilliant and she was relaxed the whole time despite the young dogs gauche manners and excitement. In the evening she played in the pen for an hour with a young JRT that she has played with before then they came indoors and into our private apartment. Mia let the other dog play with her toys and they were both with me on the bed chewing either end of the same rawhide bone. I still can't take Mia off of the property for a walk because she gets too stressed but I don't care. She has learned how to be a dog that can enjoy other dogs. I am so very proud of her and the fear of the outside will hopefully fade in time.....one step at a time she will get there.
