While Sis had another good eye exam and we don’t take those for granted, we’re also celebrating a few “little wins” for Gretchen Greer as well. Last week, she managed to let our neighbor who teaches people how to drive a cart – a pair of ponies connected to a pretty little “wagon” – pass by without flipping out. She went on alert, stayed in her right-sided heel (both because I can shield her and because Sissy already knew to heel left), and only gave one kinda’ mild bark!
Yesterday, a wild turkey hen passed just a few yards in front of us. Evidently, Gg knew it was “game” and not a neighbor-threat, because while she tried to pull and we picked up speed, she didn’t bark at all, and Sissy just whined her heart out while pulling and racing too.
Progress!! I’m so proud of Gretchen. Overcoming fears is tough work, especially when you’re tiny and the entire world looms large.
Are you celebrating any little wins or milestones?
