Good dog, good week

Facts: 50 cm, 15,2 kg. 4 month old.

And what does she do when she’s alone?
Thursday I spend the day free from work. I went to the doctor to get my knee examined. This gave me the opportunity to let Pandora be home alone I as I went home I parked my car at the neighbors house  and sneaked home. I was so curious to see what see what she was doing. I sneaked up to the window (I bet some passing cars thought I was a thief sneaking in) and I look in, and see: Pandora was laying at the couch quit and calm. Awake and observant, but not uncomfortable and uneasy. Thank god she wasn’t trying to break down any doors or smashed any windows. It made me very happy and took a burden of my shoulders.
Great discovering.

The cage
Next, we bought a cage for her as mentioned in the former letter.
Now she has chosen to use it when she wants to be left alone. She walks into it when she has a particulary good bone or wants to eat in peace. Also great. The cage is a positive thing, not a jail.
Two days ago she tried again to get through the cat flap and she got stuck.
She wined and screamed like she was beaten. One of her legs couldn’t get through and I didn’t know whether to pull her back in or push her out.
Finally I got her free from the trap and we couldn’t help laughing at her. I think she is now completely done trying to get out that way.
The funny thing is that she doesn’t understand that she is growing. How should she know?

Ignorance
Few days ago I went to my boyfriends work to pick him up. One of his colleges reached into the car to pet her, but she totally ignored him.
“She is very reserved and shy” he replied.
But no, That’s not it. She just wasn’t interested in him.
That is one of her wolf reactions. If she is not interested she ignores whatever it might be. No aggressiveness just ignorance.
To people who doesn’t know her it might seem that she is shy, perhaps seconds from being aggressive, but really she just isn’t interested!
It’s the same behavior when I call her and she ignores me because there’s a million other things that are more interesting.
Ignorance is bliss, they say. To her it’s true.

Hearing or not
Just a short note to tell that we sometimes meet up with some guys and play music.
It doesn’t seem to be a problem to Pandora to lay in the middle of it all as we play. Drums, bass, guitar and singing, very loud. I don’t understand how she can stand be in the middle of it, but she can.

A little show off
This week (7. Sept. to 13. Sept.)  Pandora was chosen as Dog Of The Week at the danish United dogs-homepage. Cool.

Visits
This weekend we are invited for dinner at some friends. And Pandora is invited too.
Very good friends indeed. Also to Pandora.
Hope she won’t have any ‘accidents’ in their house.
A nice weekend is waiting for us. I just cannot seem to spend enough time with her.
She’s a darling.
