Update 9/09/16 - Teenie, who we call Beanie, continues to be such a sweet and gentle soul. As we spend more time with her, we realize that her life before MAGDRL was probably quite terrible. She is afraid of so many things. We learned quickly about the thunder/lightening, but then learned only the rain was just as bad for her. She is absolutely terrified of the dark. Whether she was left or tied outside at night we will never know, but her trust for her foster Mom is the only thing that gets her to go outside at night to go potty. Any movement, even something as simple as you getting up from the table makes her nervous. Touch is something that Teenie is also struggling with. If you are outside and you call her to you, she will come running so excited with her tail wagging... and then when she gets to you, she will stop and lower her head before you can pet her and love her up. She wants the attention and the love and kisses, but she is still nervous about them. Any time you pet her or caress her she will let you, but is still wary. The best time for Teenie, when she's just being a big puppy, is when she's playing with Tink. They have a routine every morning. After they have eaten and had a nap they run around the house with pure joy! They will roll around on the floor and nose each other. It's so fun to watch. When Tink tires out, which is always before Teenie, it's time to come into the kitchen and have a few bites of toast! Teenie is just a joy to be around and once she feels she can trust you, tries as hard as she can to overcome her past...we just adore her!
