Gypsy's new thread

Hi guys!!
Thought I'd start a new thread, out of adoptions because that's not us anymore
Have some more good news!! It's a small victory, but...baby steps right???

Gypsy was lying down under the highchair--which is NOT a regular thing, btw,she was asleep there, so I let her be. My daughter leaned over to give her a cookie. She woke up(of course ) and sniffed the cookie--then LOOKED RIGHT AT ME and put her sweet little head back down!!!

Can you believe that?? We have been working on the difference between "no" , "gentle" and "o.k.".....I'm so proud of her, I just had to share!!!
I know I'd never leave her unattended with the girls, ever!! especially not with food, but I can't believe she's showing such good restraint already!!This dog LOOOOOOVES food, especially "people food" .

If you are wondering if your dog can count, hide three cookies in your hand--and give him two!!

Twinmommy you ROCK, You have really made a difference in Gypsy and should be proud of her and yourself especially for not giving up without a fight. You set a great example of what can be done when you put your mind and heart into it.
