Only last week was the first time I could actually cuddle my dog, wrap my arms around him and just hold him, and not have him cower or pull away. Last week was the first time he reciprocated the affection. He rolled into me and stuck his icey cold nose under my chin and then under my arm. He'll have been with me for 5 months this Tuesday.

It takes time. So forget about time. Forget about goals. Learn to stop. Learn to breathe. Dont worry about giving up. Dont worry if they will be capable. Just sit there with them. Let them have their say too. They come around, even if it takes you years to get there. Even then, they may never be 100% and it is up to you to be happy with that.
