Why Did I Want A Sofa Dog Again?

Three days ago, without rhyme or reason, Macy decided she was an affectionate girl! Only once has she run from me while petting her! She's come up on the sofa and sought my hand. She's stayed for longer and longer times. And tonight, she has cuddled with me on the sofa all evening for only the second time in nine months!

 I don't know what brought this on...

We had an insane weekend. Our hiking buddy, Buster got trapped high up a mountain ridge for about 30 freezing rain. The whole pack had quite the adventure rescuing him - he's home safe now!  And Macy was up on the mountain once with me during one of the rescue attempts. 

I don't know if it was seeing my concern for her buddy or feeling how very upset I was, but suddenly, she's far more loving! And I'm eating it up for as long as it lasts - even if it means I have sit hanging off the sofa!

I'm glad it ended well for Buster... maybe Macey felt the same like you for Buster and needs more cuddly moments ?

Glad to hear Buster is safe now. I hope this means Macy Blue has turned a corner in her warming up to all the wonderful things she has in her life now.

Yikes! Glad Buster was rescued - that sounds terrifying!

Maybe Macy saw how much you really love dogs and decided you were worthy to now receive her affections. ;)

Wonderful, wonderful - just takes time and patience. Now reward her while she is up there with the highest value treats you have:)

Big smile!!!! Having been through similar things with Shyla, I always remind myself that it can take a long time to overcome the bad things that might have happened before we knew our girls. It sure sounds like this is a lovely big step for Macy. I'm so happy for you!
