You're not going to believe this picture!!

OK, I hope this works...

My 22 yr old DS rolled out of bed and onto the sofa yesterday (so he's a little scruffy, lol!) to watch TV, and who should come up to him begging to be picked up??? Yep, Tessa! The same Tessa who 3 days earlier would have nothing to do with him! Those of you who've been following our story know how worried we've been and how skittish she's been with people. Things aren't perfect. Today he's been walking around and trying to get her to come to him but she's been hesitant. She prefers him lying down and she wants to be the one making the first move. But still, we're thrilled with the progress she's made!

P.S. I see it's a little blurry...I must have been too excited and couldn't hold the camera still :-)

Jan,

What a cute picture! They all have to do it in their own time. I'm so happy she's coming along.

Jan, I am so glad for you!! I can tell you that my Lily was like that , and still is. She wants to be the one to decide if you are ok to come to, and does not like new people who are standing. If possible, I always try to have people sit, and make no fast movements, and let Lily come to them. It only takes like 5 minutes and she comes around. She will bark again when they stand but if she sees this person for a few days , she is fine. I can promise that she will come around to your son, and they will be the best of friends soon. We brought Logan home Jan 1st this past year, and my son goes to college, after a school break, Logan just loves him to death & never barks at him. Tessa will come around - and your son will be thrilled!!
Good luck.

He's a little young for me, but I don't think I'd be shying away from him!! LOL! Oh, sorry, he's even younger than my children. Egads, I shouldn't even be looking... Glad to hear Tessa is adjusting to the family!

What a great picture and you can "hear" how thrilled you are in your post. She probably will just need more time than most pups and have to do it her way.

I was so happy to see your post. It just takes time, but it seems like she is coming around. You are so wonderful for being so patient with her and I am sure that it will all be worth it! How sweet that she came to your son.
