Wiley continues to make progress in dealing with people. She is much more comfortable with strangers. I converted Ken to the advantages of using treats for training, so now he often has treats in his left pocket. So Wiley is often found sitting before him gazing at his left pocket. It never fails to make him laugh. I guess he is pretty easy.
We do have one new, major challenge. She is a digger which can be easily seen in our lawn. The problem started when a troublesome neighbor finally left the area. A lot of outside junk went with him. The rabbits, which had babies at the time, were really disturbed. And Wiley used her digging powers to dig under our chain link fence to go after the prey. She didn’t go far, and was found quickly. She would even run past to visit, but not to stay. Fortunately, this has only happened 4 times. Each time she eventually followed us and our liver sausage home – after she was tired of the adventure.
We are happy the ground is now frozen.
Thought you might want some photos for your newsletter. Thank you for your work, and bringing such a delightful dog to us.
