Kali left for a week at grandma's house.
Uncle Pat and Aunt Patty came to get her and take her back. It was good to see them. While they were here we had a local dog trainer come in to do a consultation on the behaviour issues with Sweetpea.
We knew she was a good dog, just had some baggage that she brought along. Each of children had their own unknown baggage when we brought them home also. This trainer, Tricia is also a K-9 Officer in our town. She was awesome. Since 2:00 today there has been peace in our home with two dogs! YES! We are being trained on how to work Sweetpea through her insecurities and fears. It will not be over night but with consistency and having everyone told this and not just me passing it on I believe we can do this. Tricia actually recognized her from the APL which was cool. She remembered seeing her at some offsite adoptions. Even Kole is learning what is right and what is wrong when working with her. Of course the light bulb went on inside me and I was getting it. I think the rest were, too. It is so nice for Boyd to come in the door and not have her barking her brains out and getting Reiko all worked up too.
Kole had football practice on Tuesday, but it was rained out for the second Tuesday in a row. They practiced Wednesday and Thursday instead. Next week we are back to Tuesday adn Thursday, but there is rain the forecast for Tuesday, again.
Here are some pics that were taken during the week.
