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

Awesome!!! Sounds like you both had a fantastic outing . So good to hear that Fama is able to relax and enjoy being "retired".

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,

kjdreyer So glad to hear she's doing so well! She deserves a happy retirement!

Kyndaara Love the pics and video. She has such a good feel about her--classic GSD. You can feel the quality of the dog and her personality.

Pam tried to say "time out" to get them to settle for a second while she goes past, but they don't know what that means LOL.

David,

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!

Susan

Oh--I just read your other post about Lu trusting her. Those girls, just got to get rough with the boys, lol!

Mikelia 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

David Winners 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.
