This is really wonderful to hear.
I think she is reading you and behaving accordingly. Lowe's grill project sends way different vibes to the dog than checking trash trucks in the Middle East,

Headed out with Fama to do some shopping for supplies for my grill project. We went into Lowe's, Home Depot and Ace Hardware. I had her on a prong and she was sporting her " Do Not Pet " collar.
What really surprised me was that she was totally off duty. She no longer walks around waiting for someone to give her a reason to fight. She was totally laid back. We had a good time and she got to meet and greet a couple dozen people. She was perfect, even rubbing up against one lady like a cat.
The checkout girl at Ace wanted a picture so I had Fama jump up on the counter and sit. The girl threw her arm around Fama's shoulders and they smiled for the shot. Pretty cool.
I think she's really digging retirement

After the way you have let us all in to come to know Fama, it is so good to see her now, a happy dog doing dog things!
My two try to get games going in the house, but after one threw a nylabone and hit the fish tank, I've had to make the house off-limits for play time!
Do Fama and Lu's games ever progress to being too serious? I watch my Jade because she will look for an opportunity to take my little boy down when I'm not in the room, lol. She does listen, though, and back off when I tell her to, the brat.
Thanks for the update!
Oh--I just read your other post about Lu trusting her. Those girls, just got to get rough with the boys, lol!

Awww I'm so happy she is home and doing so well. And I think it's great you are doing scenting with her, she's going to kick butt at trials!
My gsds don't make friends with other dogs right away (they're dog friendly, but aloof until they have met the dog a few times) but when they do they often weird the other dog out by neck chewing and body slamming. I love watching them develop relationships, we just moved and my guys are doing it with the neighbors beagle right now.
So, so, so glad to hear and see how well she is doing

It's taken a while for Lu to trust her. He's never been intimidated by a dog before, and it was a real shocker to him when Fama came in and took over. He was constantly a bit defensive with her, and the second she got a little too rough, he would snark back and get defensive.
We just watched their interactions carefully and intervened before anything got serious. Through time and guidance their bond is getting pretty strong. Fama even rolls over with him; something I have never seen her do with people, let alone another dog.
It's been cool to watch their relationship change.
