I thought I would drop you a line to let you know how Olive is handling the kidnapping!
I am just sure this is what she thinks happened. She was a nervous wreck when we first got her out of the car. We had to leave the leash on her for several hours so we could get her to move around with us. When she was in the yard she kept running to the gate or the car. Finally around 6 she started to get hungry, so I made the pet crew dinner. She ate about 1/2 her food and then claimed her space on a couch. After she had this space, she started to calm down.
We had dinner guest, so Olive got to meet our friend Peggy. It was good that Peggy came over because we were focused on talking and eating dinner, which gave Olive time to calm down. She did come over to meet Peggy and even let Peg pet her. After Peg left, Olive ate the rest of her dinner and I took her outside for a walk. At bedtime, she chose to sleep on the couch (with one eye open).
Oh, as I was cleaning up after dinner, I asked her to twirl. She did a very slow circle, but she twirled.
Karen's most recent update:
Olive found her play mode, and we had lots of fun with her toys. She was grinning and being silly. This morning after our walk she was being goofy, and it was very hard for me to walk out the door. I wanted to stay home and play. I just check-in with Larry and all is well for everyone.
Sorry I forget to mention that Zoo changed as soon as be put Olive in the car with us. He really likes her. Last night's walk was with the three of us, and he volunteered to go. What a difference.
