Willow Shenanigans: 10 June 2021

Willow is with us for 4 weeks already.

She loves playing outside and if you give her a new toy she takes it outside.

This week she was very naughty but like children they test the boundaries. She knows exactly when she did something wrong. She hates being ignored, but in some cases I can’t ignore it when she is naughty for her own safety.

I am busy training her to give paw. Today was the first time that she did give her paw when I asked for it. I tried a few minutes later again and she just look at me….

I took her to the Vet last Friday and she got a clean bill of health and also her last injections. The Vet told me to keep Willow at home for 14 days before we go out again. I am not sure why, but I am rather safe than sorry.

Willow loves attention and she will make sure you give her plenty. In the evenings she will squeeze between Morné and me.

She loves to lick…. Poor Ogies end up wet more than once a day…. Ogies and Willow gets along so great. She will call Willow and then when Willow gets near she will moan and I will tell Willow to leave Ogies alone. The other day I was standing in my office doorway and I saw something very interesting. Willow was lying under the couch and Ogies was sitting on the chair in the sun. She started moaning looking straight at me. Poor Willow wasn’t even near her. When I did not respond, she moaned even louder. I started wondering how many times Willow was innocent….

On the Willow and Shadow front;

They are still not getting along. When Shadow sees Willow he disappears. My heart is braking and I miss my cuddles with my boy. I wish that Shadow will realize that Willow just wants to play. But taken Shadows past I can understand that he is afraid.

Thank you for visiting with me and Willow.

Have a fantastic week.

  1. Willow and Ogies are so cute together! I wonder if it is a male/female thing with Willow and Shadow. When I had a situation like this with my cats, several years ago, my vet said either they get along or they don’t. Like I couldn’t figure that out for myself…. Good luck with this, Coreen.

    1. Good day, Lois.
      It is not that Shadow is not used to big dogs. He always teased Ruby but never ran away. But Ruby was 6 years when we got him and she grew up with cats. Willow wants to play and Shadow even runs when anyone moves too fast. I believe that they will get used to each other someday. It will just take time. I try to spend time with Shadow and leave the gate open. He is still fine when Willow lies in the doorway, but as soon as she sits up he starts to tense up and is ready to run. I spoke to my Vet she said that it will take time for both of them because we are not sure what happened to them before they got adopted.
      Have a lovely day
