Alright, so things have been going well with Venus. She's been crated in the livingroom so she can be around the chaos that is everyday life and still feel somewhat safe, and not pace the way she was doing before.
If I have her on leash she's a little more sure of herself than she was before.
And even though she's not allowed on the furniture, and I've been keeping her Wally-time to a minimum (so that she can bond with humans and not dogs) I have her in my office for a couple minutes right now, I just turned around and found her curled up on the office couch, butt to butt with Wally. I wish I had my camera! He usually doesn't let dogs snuggle with him, so this is a biggy for him, which is why I'm not kicking her off the couch. I hope Chris isn't mad at me for this when I bring her up for her evaluation tomorrow!! But I think that the fact that Wally is sharing his space with another dog is a bit more important at the moment.
