Thought you would like to see how great she is
Just wanted to check in and let you know that things are going great here with RyLee. She has come a long ways since I picked her up in Monroe from you. As I'm sure you can tell, I won't be returning her to the shelter - EVER!!!! I can't tell you how much joy she has given me. We get along famously as if we have been with each other for the past 8 years. Not a day goes by that I don't love having her in my home and I'm sure she feels the same way. She absolutely loves going for car rides and does great just hanging out in the car while I do errands (glad it's getting cooler now so she can go everywhere with me). We are still working on greeting other dogs, but I think over time she will adjust, if not, that's okay with me too. I can't thank you enough for brining RyLee into my life. She is truly a gift.
Thought I would give you an update on how things are going here. We have been to three training sessions so far and RyLee is doing great. She knows how to heel now and walk on a leash without pulling. We are having a great time together. I have been testing leaving her in the house without being crated and she is doing wonderful with that. I was gone the other day for 7 hours and was very concerned about leaving her alone, but she did a great job. Everyone that meets her loves her. She is so personable to humans. We started walking with my neighbor and her small dog and, so far, things have gone smoothly. RyLee still is a bit dog aggressive, but we are working on this in training. I'm breaking her of being toy aggressive. The other day my best friend came by with her 4 year old twins and they all got along fine. RyLee had a great time playing outside with the little girls. She has decided that sleeping on my bed is much better than the crate or the floor. I don't really mind - she is good company for me. RyLee is going in for a teeth cleaning on August 31st. Her back teeth are caked with plaque to a point where you can hardly see them. I have a good Vet and she will be in good hands having this done. My Vet has taken her off all the supplements except for the fish oil. I can't tell you how happy I am having her in my life. We get along like she's been here her whole life. Thank you so much for taking such great care of her over those three months. She truly is a sweet girl.
Look like she found her place on the couch. So far she has been just a dream. We have gone on a few walks around the neighborhood. She did go a bit crazy when she saw another dog, but I try and go out when I'm pretty sure it's quiet outside. She ate dinner the first night around 10:00pm - ever since then she has eaten when I put the food down morning and night. She only had one accident in the house which was on the first day - which was to be expected. We start training tonight - really excited about that.
8/6/16:I can't tell you haw happy I am to have Mylee in my home. Thought I would give you an update after day one. The first thing Mylee did was poop and pee in the house. Pretty funny. I should have seen that coming. So far she has been calm and frantic. She's jumped up on the couch with me and laid her head on my lap three times. We have been in the backyard playing fetch with two balls - which you warned me about. It's been great having her here and I just know we will be great in time. I will be as patient with her so she knows she is safe and not going anywhere. At one point she laid across the door opening from my dining room and my deck thinking, I'm hoping, this is great! I'm giving her as much space as possible while keeping an eye on her. Thank you for that book. I read it when I got home. Very informative. Hope you get a good nights sleep and I will keep you updated on her progress. I'm going through me changing her name to Rylee. Mylee remind me too much of Miley Cyrus and I don't want her to have that curse.
