Things are going well. Jaida is becoming more curious and will walk around the yard a little. She has also gained the confidence to tackle going up a set of stairs. However, she will not go down more than two steps, which is how she gets outside.
Jaida is beginning to initiate some play with our dog. It generally consists of her pulling at his ears or tail and him just looking at her. 😊 Otherwise, when he starts to play with her she just collapses on her side or back in a submissive posture.
We are still working on housebreaking. She is also begun "demand barking" when she wants something like food or treats and sometimes attention! We are working on that as well.
Jaida has poor muscle condition in her limbs. Treatment is aimed at improving strength of these soft tissues and providing high quality, balanced nutrition. Exercise should be frequent and initially in short episodes, to build strength. Physical therapy is also advised to work on building strength and coordination.
