Her name is Lolo, she was a rescue...

I have been taking care of Lolo for 7 days now.  Her mom rescued her 2 years ago when she was 3.  She has trust issues.  She was terrified of her last walker.  Her mom suggested I use hot dogs to gain her trust.  When I walked in the first day, the poor girl was shaking like a leaf.  I gave her hot dogs, she was not that interested.  So for the next few days, I'd go in, sat down, no eye contact, per her mom's instructions, and just fed her hot dogs and talked to her, telling her she is a very good girl, when she stopped shaking, we go out for a potty break.   A few days ago, she ate hot dogs out of my hand.  I got her to sit and give me her paw.  Yesterday, she let me pat her!!  Today, I got her to come over to me, and we walked all the way to the park!!!  I know it will take a while before she will trust me completely, but it is good to see progress every day.  This week, her friend, Sophie, is visiting.

Is it a bird?  Is it a plane?  It's Wendel!!

Is he a scholar?
Is he a professor?
Is his intelligence above average?
Is he judging me?
Is he friendly?
Is he Best in Show?
Yes to all the above!
Meet Wendel!  I have a feeling I am going to learn a lot from him.

Today is my first walk with Roxy, she is 6 years old, sweet like honey, loves everyone and everything, just one very happy happy girl.  I walked in and she welcomed me with open paws and said let's go!  The first walk is always interesting, they are always trying to figure who I am, I am trying to figure out their funny habits, likes and dislikes.  Most special attribute I noticed today is, she likes to pee and walk at the same time and when she poops, she poops in a circle like she is drawing a clock.  I look forward to getting to know her better and finding out more quirks about her.  Thank you Roxy for a wonderful first walk!
