Belle became very anxious at the CGC class again tonight so she and Greg ended up leaving early. On the way home they stopped at a park and went for a long walk. Greg said she did just fine and they had a good time.
We have decided that for Belle the journey to becoming a therapy dog is done. For whatever reason she just gets too anxious. We have tried several things to help her and while it makes it better it doesn’t take her anxiety completely away and we love her way too much to put her through that.
So Abbott’s Timber Creek Mae Belle is not going to be a mama, because of her hip dysplasia, and she isn’t going to become a therapy dog because of her anxieties but she is going to continue to be our Belle baby, the snuggler, the “wake Margret upper”, the blanket stealer, the tennis ball loving, second in command of our 4 footed family members, (Lucy kitty is still first.) precious, special smiley pup.
